NYFW Day One

New York, New York

TGIF everyone! This past week has been an absolute whirlwind, literally and figuratively. We spent it in New York for Fashion Week in the snow, wind and rain, and not to sound cliché or anything but…had the absolute time of our lives! Though it wasn’t my first time experiencing NYFW, I never did it quit like this. Usually we attend a couple shows, and events, plan a few meetings while in the city and call it a day. This trip however, it was going to be 5 days, a dozen shows, evening fun with friends, and no time for rest let alone sleep. That’s right kids, I was gonna do it like the pros do.

After missing the Desigual and Nicholas K show (told ya’ I was doing it like the pros), we finally arrived amidst the snowstorm, and I had to get going and ready for the Micheal Costello show. Did I mention the snowstorm. Try to look cute, let alone effortlessly street style cool surrounded by puddles of slush and snowbanks. Not what I had planned for. After I got seated first row across from a Care Bear, my nerves took a back seat and I started feeling like this week was gonna be good. That night was followed by the best tacos of my life at ABC Cocina, and a mediocre night’s rest.

The next day I froze my buns of shooting this very look, before heading to The Standard Grill for a quick lunch before Cushnie et Ochs. Here’s a tip for you. Don’t eat a massive burger with a generous side of fries while wearing lycra-less vintage jeans. Boy did I not feel good. I had my tight pants on, a tall pink pom pom beanie, and leopard of all prints, sitting front row at my most anticipated show of the week, across from some of the most influential people in the industry. If you want to know how to feel out of place kids, this is how you do it!

Events like fashion week can make you feel so very teeny tiny in a sea of incredibly beautiful and talented individuals. What’s important to remember though, is that no two are completely alike, and that it is your skill, your character, and your unadulterated uniqueness, that will get you where you are going. So no matter how many followers, endorsement deals or shiny contracts are sitting across from you at a fashion show, you made it because of your hard work and because you stayed true to who you are. Wow, why did I go all introspective and preachy again. All I’m trying to say is…you do you. No matter, in what field, or what that means to you, because your power is in your individuality and what you bring to the table. Even if like in my case, it’s just butt jokes, a pom pom hat and a good time…Have a beautiful weekend my little chickens!

Denim à la Justin & Britney

Montreal, Canada

Happy humpday everyone. Where do I even begin. Work has taken over my life, my relationship, and my eating time, and I’m not so thrilled about it. Aside from the quality minutes I save to watch Black Mirror on Netflix, I fear I have given up all my free time. I went on the master cleanse yesterday and actually enjoyed it because it meant I didn’t have to schedule time to eat. Who am I? I don’t even know how it happened. Sure with YouTube, planning for fashion week and rearranging my life in general, I guess it makes sense I’ve lost the lunch/recess period of the school day, but it kind of made me realize how valuable that time was.

I miss spending time with my husband in a non professional setting, and having time to chit chat about stuff other than the video being released next Wednesday on the channel, or the new WERKS website (that’s his company btw). I guess that’s the not so fun part about working with your best friend. I spend so much time scheduling, you’d think I’d put a little bit of quality time aside for the most important gentleman in my life. So I’ve decided to take a break from the shop talk, and  go back to the baby talk that used to make our friends feel nauseous whenever they were around us. We’re going back to the Justin and Britney days of our relationship, so don’t be alarmed if you see us in matching denim looks on Instagram. Just kidding, he’d never go for it…or would he?…. Until then, here I am, solo in denim, with my curly haired boy bander behind the camera. Did I just take this metaphor/comparison thing too far? Anywhoo, I wish you all a wonderful rest of the week, that includes loads of free time to spend with the ones you love…Even if they won’t wear matching denim ensembles with you.

Hey Mama Welcome to the 70s

Is it just me or did I try really hard to look like a librarian this day. While in Texas last month I had the best time getting dressed in my best interpretation of southern garb. From cowgal touches, to 70s prairie companion flair, this was the most fun I had getting dressed since festival season. I guess KidRock was right because I DO want to be a cowboy baby. This look was all kinds of Chloé inspired and I had a great time living in a different decade for the day.

Now onto more current news, our ConscienceCoupable YouTube channel is officially up and running and we have been having so much fun with it lately! New stuff, from adventure vlogs, to silly fashion related videos, will be coming out every Wednesday! Woohoo! We welcome suggestions and encourage you guys to comment on our videos or Instagram to let us know what YOU want to see next, because we are new to the YouTube game, and the internet is a scary place, but mostly because we would love nothing more than to do this thing together with you guys, so that our channel can truly become ALL OF OUR channel…Did that make sense? It was meant to be like…sentimental..and inclusive…and cute and stufff. ANYWAY. Make sure to SUBSCRIBE, to get all the good stuff first and I can’t wait to see you all on Wednesday. Well technically you guys will be seeing me but…you get what I’m saying!…

Paris, Je T’aime

The time has finally come, to conclude our european adventure on the blog and I’m kinda bummed about it. The past couple of weeks have been filled with not so great news, and reliving the amazing moments we had while away, felt like a nice escape and kept me hopeful for more of them to come ahead. I have to stop the sobbing and self pity, I’m starting to bum out the very readers I’m trying so hard to amuse with my butt jokes. Besides, we’re not quite as done with the Eurotrip as I’m leading on. To celebrate the third anniversary of ConscienceCoupable we have been working on something new and extra special that I cannot wait to share with you all… but until then let me tell you about the last stop of our European road trip.

Paris is where the best Pain au Chocolat lives. It is also where the fashion houses I am most devoted to came to inception, and where their creative teams remain today. What else can I tell you about Paris?…The food is something else, the garments and the artistry behind them are respected the way I feel they always should be, and my favourite lady lives there. Her name is Eiffel, and she sure is a sight for sore eyes. There is also the Louvre, that I’m saving for a future trip when I start caring appropriately about the kind of art that I cannot wear. It is home to my favourite vintage shopping (Didier Ludot), my favourite cheese cake (it’s at Hotel Costes, you GOTTA try it), and my favourite memories after this trip with my husband & parents. We had a pretty unbelievable time, and I’m sure if you have visited the city of lights you might share a similar experience….and if you haven’t all I can say is lucky you, because you have a lot to look forward to. Though it has nice to have been home the past week or so, my vagabond spirit has started to chime up, and we are off on the road again tomorrow. I can’t help it..there’s just so much to see!
