Last week we had the honor of being special guests at St. Louis Fashion Week. The wonderful people of ALIVE Mag showed us just how fashionable STL is, and made us feel right at home during our first visit to Missouri. We’d also like to thank Explore St. Louis for an extremely fun party bus tour of the city. From gardens, to landmarks, to shops and undeniable food and drinks, we’re now absolutely sure we’ll go back to STL soon. So glad we got to see some Fall foliage, some cute zoo animals, and some incredible Halloween decorations.

What an incredible week we had at St. Louis Fashion Week! There were so many lust-worthy looks that came down the runway. We loved perusing the designer market for fresh faced designers, and found some incredible pieces i.e. that crown though. Here are a few of our stand out pieces and looks from the week. We want to thank Alive Mag for sending us to St. Louis and taking such great care of us!

Emily – Shirt, Zara. Pants, J Brand. Handbag, Etienne Aigner. Heels, Dolce Vita.
Abigail – Jacket, vintage. Romper, Topshop. Handbag, Foley & Corinna. Heels, Preen x Aldo.

Okay, so we forgot to take outfit pics when the sun was still up because we were so consumed by our first few hours in St. Louis. This clearly resulted in 11pm hotel shots such as Emily being a bombshell in the hallways, and me… well, me being a hot mess in the hotel room. We’re onto day two at St. Louis Fashion Week, so definitely check back for our round-up post. Things we love about STL: a plethora of outdoor fountains, spaciousness, a free zoo, Panera originated here, and there’s so much more to learn.

Calmer Than Chamomile

Today’s Drink:

“Calmer Than Chamomile”
(Peru’s best pisco expertly shaken with chamomile grappa enhanced by fresh lemon juice, honey, and bitters.)

Bartender: British guy

(Cloudbar –  218 West 50th Street)

If it’s got chamomile in it, it must be good for you… right? That’s what I’m going with at least. We don’t normally head up to the Times Square area, but we’re glad we ended up at Cloudbar, found within the CitizenM Hotel. It has a spectacular view right above all the craziness on the streets. The honey in the drink made it super smooth. We can definitely say it went down easy!

Emily – Top, Brandy Melville. Jeans, One Teaspoon. Jacket, LF stores. Bag, Foley & Corinna. Heels, Dolce Vita. Sunnies, Dharma Co.
Abigail – Vest & tank, Urban Outfitters. Jeans, Raven Denim. Bag, Rebecca Minkoff. Sandals, Jeffrey Campbell. Watch, Mondaine. Sunnies, Tom Ford.

Today we were in search of sunny spots to soak up some last quality Vitamin D. We happened upon this barn-like wall, and kind of wished we were in a field or on a hay-ride. Still aiming to go apple-picking before it’s too late! Also strolled by one of the gardens in our neighborhood and posed in front of the vivacious vines. Emily was sporting a “boyfriend” style in her simple tee and baggy jeans. I’m holding on to the all white trend, but luckily it’s not going anywhere any time soon!

Warm Wishes

WanderLust Girls Fur picks

 

Unfortunately, Winter is fast approaching. I know, I know we’re just beginning Fall! However, due to last years horrid Winter, everyone should start preparing. Abigail and I are known for NEVER dressing for the weather i.e. wearing tiny thin leather jackets in a polar vortex. Not this year, we’re stocking up on anything warm and practical. Lusting over these ML fur coats. The company is based in Denver since 1951… so they are trusted cold experts!

I’ve been searching for the past couple of years for the best fur coat with a hood and I think I’ve finally found it. I’m also loving the top left how it falls at the waist! Do I even dare get started on those colors? Oxblood, and midnight blue are everything! Which is your favorite winter style?

Xx,

Emily

Zum Schneider Restaurant and Biergarten has been hosting it’s annual Oktoberfest party on the East River for the past two weeks. Lots and lots of beer, polka performances by the The Ja Ja Ja’s, and loads of lederhosen. I have a dirndl on standby nowadays, just cause you never know when you’ll need it, but we had to makeshift Abigail one 30 minutes before we headed over for the festivities. We turned a tutu inside out for the skirt and put a corset on backwards… not bad. What do you guys think?

As if the night couldn’t have gotten any better, Cyndi Lauper showed up and sang with the band! So cool, I can’t even handle it. After numerous beers and wines in steins we rode the carousel and ate lots of cotton candy, German cookies and then drank some more beer. Best thing about the night? We danced so much to all the polka music that we most likely burned off everything we drank.

Unfortunately Oktoberfest festivities have come to an end, so make sure you mark your calendars to go next year!  When you walk into Zum Schneider on 7th street and Avenue C, you’ll instantly smell delicious authentic German-Bavarian cuisine, and if you’re lucky you’ll get to hear The Ja Ja Ja’s perform! On Saturday’s and Sunday’s the crowd pours into the street for their incredible brunch. Definitely worth heading over to the East Village to check it out if you haven’t already!

Xx, Emily

 

Denim Differences

 Abigail – Jacket, Aqua. Tee, LF stores. Skinnies, Raven Denim. Boots, Aldo. Necklace, Origami Owl. Bag, Foley + Corinna.

Emily – Denim jacket, Topshop. Vintage tee, What Goes Around Comes Around. Skinnies, Garter + Derringer. Boots, Senso. Hat, Joe Fresh. Bag, Ballista.

First things first, Abigail is a red head! Just in time for her Fall looks. She made a bold statement with an all white look (yeah, it’s after Labor Day, such a rebel.) Finally, it was cool enough for her to bring out this crop and it even matches her new locks.

I was way more masculine with my outfit today, considering I was channeling one of my good friends, Michael. This is his signature look, so I decided to test it out. Although, I feel like I would be 10 times cooler if I was carrying a guitar case with this look, just the case… I’m loving how worn in these Garter + Derringer’s have gotten, they’re almost as good as Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s denim game, almost.

October Mule

Today’s Drink:

“October Mule”
(Ginger beer, Angostura bitters, Benedictine liqueur, honey vodka, Velvet Falernum liqueur, egg white, and a lime)

Bartender: John O’Shea
(The Tippler – 425 W. 15th St.)

Today’s cocktail review is from one of our favorite underground spots on the West side, The Tippler. We asked the bartender for something memorable, and damn did he follow through. We got to taste a custom-made concoction catered to Fall, which he appropriately named the October Mule. With ingredients similar to a Moscow Mule, this seasonal specialty is beyond delicious. If you’re tired of your (lame-ass) vodka sodas, then head over to The Tippler and ask for John!
