Hi people. This was one of the last blog pics I took before heading onto a plane to London, where I’ll be reporting live on behalf of Topshop Canada for the Unique show. I’m so excited to see what they send down the runway this year–but until Sunday’s show, I thought I’d drop in and let you know how everything is going thus far. It’s been busy, cold, and a little messy at times, but so much fun. One thing I want to make note of is this: I have the best readers in the world! I don’t think I’ve met more readers than on this trip to NYC. I cannot remember all your names (I’m a face person), but I just want to say thank you. I hope I never come off as being blase or flippant about all these amazing things I get to do, because I really am not. As we rolled out of New York last night in the treacherous slush, I was just overwhelmed with immense gratitude. For everything. Maybe it’s unfashionable to say so, but I’m so lucky to do what I do and to share this experience with you. Yes you! So off I trot, til the next post.
I found this incredible Comme Des Garcons ‘skort’ in Vancouver right before I left for NYFW and am still pinching myself that I have it. The tailoring is impeccable and the origami-ing of the legs is well, in true Rei Kawakubo fashion–a little mind-trippy. Also, if you are curious: yes, I was freezing & yes, I was convinced I would face plant with these shoes on. Oh the glamor!

Another THP favorite, the ol’ teddy sweater. Quite literally made of something fuzzy and very cuddable, people just seem to want to hug me when I wear this. Besides spreading joy, this jumper also keeps me cozy and oh-so warm. I brought this with me to NYFW, which I feel will definitely come in handy these next few days when we expect to see some frost sprinkling the city again. Oh yes and this vintage Prada nylon that belonged to my grandmother. Sorta digging the sporty feel of it.
I cannot help but feel a little nostalgic here when I wear these classic Adidas Superstar tennis shoes. With the token three stripes and the ‘turtle’ toe, this is quintessential hip hop to me. Run DMC, Beastie Boys, B boys and girls. Do you feel me? Hip hop/urban wear in fashion (and not vice versa) has reached fever pitch. Editorialized ad nauseum this trend doesn’t seem to be resting any time soon. And hurrah for me, because these are much easier to run around in than heels.
