That’s right – the big news I’ve been hanging onto and hinting at for all this time really is big. In less than two weeks, after months of quietly planning, preparing and, quite frankly, sitting hunched over my laptop and phone with Lyndi by my side in various coffee shops and bars in the neighbourhood, we’ll be boarding a Cathay Pacific flight bound for NYC. New York Fashion Week, here we come! I’ve been blogging for six years now and every season, I’ve watched my American blogger friends have the time of their lives at NYFW. But as a Canadian, particularly a Canadian in Vancouver, the most western major city in the country, which couldn’t be further from New York unless it was actually in the ocean, making the trip has always felt like a huge undertaking and, as I so often do, I’ve worried that even if I went, no one would think I was important enough to invite me to any shows or events. After all, I’ve been watching fashion week in New York from afar since I was twelve-years-old. It’s a big deal and I’m just, well, me. (I’m pretty sure that in my head, I’m still a self-conscious thirteen-year-old who worries no one will want to sit with her at lunch because of her frizzy hair and big white runners.) But finally, this year, I thought, why not me? Why can’t I be part of it? I didn’t come up with a single answer, so the next thing I knew, we were booking plane tickets. We have so much excitement in store for our time in New York that I am tempted to tell you all about immediately, but I think the surprises will be part of the fun – and I can’t wait to bring you all along on our adventures via Snapchat and Instagram. If you’ll be in New York for Fashion Week, let me know in the Comments section!
