Though we've known one another since January (and now live right next door...convenience optimized), this little escape to NYFW was our first chance to truly travel and adventure together! As was to be expected, we discovered even more similarities between us, including but not limited to: our fondness of a piping hot bowl of pasta after a long day, our love for funky book shops (shoutout to BookMarc in the West Village), and our respective obsessions for sweet treats (Kat drowning in ice cream and Maia bathing in banana pudding), among many other qualities.
We imagine it's best to start off with the snapchats we accumulated during our delayed train ride into the city:
When we finally arrived in New York, you could surely find us noodling around the streets, attempting to stop traffic to cheese for the camera:
We also soaked in all of the authentic, NYC sights, including my, Kat's, stopping to commemorate this splayed rat on the sidewalk:
(Would this be the right time to make a Kat and mouse joke? We'll let you think of the best one).
We frolicked museums in our spare time. Pictured below are snippets from our jaunt through the Whitney:
Some outrageous purchases were made, including me, Maia, succumbing to the $20 sticker price for this bag of chai tea powder:
Really, any time food was involved, we pretty much freaked out:
(Below, we see Katherine near tears upon sampling the bounty of flavors from Ample Hills.)
Not sure whether having a spirit-wall is a thing, but this one is definitely mine:
And let us not forget the great shoe change of NYFW 2017 (photo recycled from street style post because it's honestly too good):
Outside some of our shows we were snapped and papped:
We even did some paparazzi of our own as we attempted to immortalize the cute, foreign model that may or may not have chatted us up outside the venue:
Sometimes it was hard to snag that nonchalant street style pic, dodging looks from strangers wondering why we were photographing them. To compensate -- well, actually just because it's fun -- we took pictures of actual street style as well. Street. Style. Get it? Here are some of the buildings that stunned us, clad in rugged red brick or a coat of crisp white paint.
Oh! And not to mention the adorable, Mod & Bean team pictures we snagged while at the modeling agency of my, Katherine's, cousin:
So, while we may have come off, dare we say, glamorous and chic during our time at NYFW, those were the rarer moments. Cheers to galavanting around NYC and to our future team trips to come!
Xx, Katherine & Maia
