Coldplay with Verizon

August 2, 2017

 

We had a BLAST last night at the Coldplay concert at MetLife stadium! It was completely packed with people dawning light up wrist bands that made the stadium look absolutely magical. We’ve been Coldplay fans for awhile, so we were super excited when Verizon offered us tickets to their suite and the chance to experience the concert with the new Samsung Galaxy S8 phone. 

What a camera!! We snapped these pics (above) and a bunch of fun videos, which will make an appearance in one of our round up videos soon! The camera is wicked sharp due to the dual-pixel technology. It really makes a difference when you take an image and upload it to Instagram. You want something clear enough on such a small screen and it did us proud (stay tuned for our boomerang from the concert tonight.) We love the infinity screen. That’s something we haven’t worked with before and it was nice to get a bigger picture without having to lug around a giant device! 

Okay, back to Coldplay! Firstly, Chris Martin *swoon* am I right?! He has so much energy. He really spent the whole concert running up and down the giant stage. He even did a touching tribute to Linkin Park’s lead singer, Chester Bennington. He played the piano while singing In the End. He even stopped and restarted claiming he wanted to “do it right.” We had tears in our eyes during “Fix You.” He is such a beautiful musician. What a great experience. Thank you so much Verizon! 

Xx, Emily 

P.S. The Mophie powerstation plus 6000 literally saved us last night. We spent so much time playing with the phone before the concert that we may not have even got content if we didn’t pack the extra charge! Our lifesaver.

Abigail and I have been dying to get to The Met to see the Comme des Garçons exhibit. We’ve been CDG fans since we first laid eyes on Rei Kawakubo’s designs. It’s so outlandish in the best way possible. The exhibition ranges in work from the 1980’s to current day. There are about 140 looks, but it’s still not enough! We could have gotten lost in there for hours. 

There is even two dresses connected by leather… we NEED it. How have we not had a conjoint dress yet?! Keep your eyes peeled for that soon.  Also those headpieces!! (Created and styled by Julien d’Ys.) Okay, we could go on and on, but it is something you have to see and interpret yourself. The exhibit closes September 4th 🙁 However, if you aren’t able to make it enjoy the pics above or check out more detailed coverage on The Met website

Since it was 90 degrees yesterday we decided to go in very breathable… barely there looks. Abigail’s look made some of the museum workers blush. She assured them she was not in fact naked, but utilizing a fun nude bodysuit to give off the illusion of being naked. She paired all that nudeness with a lace dress from H&M with the lining ripped out. 

This is my preppy going to a museum skirt, but the more I looked around and saw other museum goers I realize I am anything but preppy. However, for me that was more conservative. I love the netting on the skirt. Let’s a nice breeze in, but I’m also not going to flash everyone (like usual) on the subway stairs… sorry boys 😉 

What is your favorite look from the Comme des Garçons exhibit?? What an incredible exhibit. I can’t wait to see what comes to The Met next! 

Xx, Emily 

P.S. Yes, these are the stairs from Gossip Girl. Yes, we had a moment… and by moment I mean we dreamed we were Chuck and Blair.
