Trench Coat & Leather Jacket










 Emily – Trench, 424 Fifth. Tee, Rag & Bone. Latex pants, Jac Langheim. Heels, Dolce Vita. Scarf, Alexander McQueen. Sunnies, Dior.

Abigail – Button down, Everlane. Leather jacket, Playboy. Denim, Articles of Society. Shoes, Senso. Hat, Free People.

With only 18 days till Spring, Abigail and I decided to do a transition look between the seasons. Light weight jackets are key items. I’m a huge fan of trenches, but it’s a bit too clean cut for me. So, I edged it up with latex pants and a McQueen skull scarf. This is the least amount of black I’ve worn in weeks!

Abigail had a western vibe going on today. The only thing missing was a revolver, and maybe a horse or two. Totally digging this white button down (a new addition to the WanderLust wardrobe.) We’ve been on the hunt for the perfect prim collared shirt and I think we found it!

Xx, Emily


Winter Layering






Emily – Coat, Wega. Studded top, Blaque Label. Leather pants, Aritzia. Boots, Vince. Sunnies, Dior.

Abigail – Cape & blazer, Zara. Top, Darling. Pants, 424 Fifth. Heels, Preen x Aldo. Backpack, DKNY. Sunnies, Tom Ford.

Black layers. Shocking! I’m sorry, but we’re so over this Winter. We pile on our black basics for newly styled ensembles. Emily stays warm in her cloak-like coat she found in Germany. Look at that fuzzy hood! Winning. I opt for all similar fabrics with a Zara blazer and cape. Added some detail with this pearl embellished top, and kept it comfortable in these new 424 Fifth trousers. A tailored look, but totally functional.


El Diablo – Jimmy at The James


 Today’s Drink:

“El Diablo”
(Milagro Silver Tequila, Creme de Cassis, ginger beer, lime, thyme sprig.)

(Jimmy at The James – 27 Grand St)

Bartender: Carl Wolfe

Another fav from The Jimmy! We’re huge tequila fans, and we love how it tastes mixed with ginger beer. I don’t think we’ve ever blended the two! This is an interesting take on the mule, but for people who prefer the thrill of tequila over vodka. Refreshing, strong, delicious.


Fashion Week Bag

February means a variety of things to a Fashion Blogger. It means New Year’s Eve has come and passed and we’re sticking to our resolutions of walking more, being prepared, and staying hydrated. It means Fashion Week is our life for seven days straight, and our day-to-day is filled with runways and events. It means it’s cold as all get out, so we’ve got to carry our big bags filled with necessities (such as flats, lipstick, and the official hydrator, smartwater.)

Because we’re at our tenth season of New York Fashion Week, we sometimes find ourselves scraping for inspiration. What will make this season stand apart from the rest? How will we find influence in our everyday lives to excite us for this major event? As we head out of our East Village apartment, we find all the musings we were looking for. From retro concert halls, to comedy cellars, to hidden restaurants, we witness authentic style of all walks of life.

An old lady with a pushcart reminds me I should combine red and leopard print more. A young man in suspenders reminds me I should take more risks. We shouldn’t always have our faces in our phones, tablets, and computers – we should be on the street soaking in the real world’s style.

Watch some of Fashion Week’s top designers as they share about staying inspired.
