Lovely in Leopard: Emily and Abigail of Wanderlust
I had the pleasure of interviewing the Wanderlust girls, Emily and Abigail, three months ago for the newspaper I write for, Town & Village. And it was obvious based on our conversation then that these recent college grads really know their stuff when it comes to fashion writing and styling. So much so that as of last May, they began working on their fashion blog full-time. In February, Emily, Abigail and their photographer Scott offered some great coverage of New York Fashion Week, and on most days you can find photos of their jaunts around Manhattan, usually with the girls wearing something sexy and rock and roll inspired and always with sky high heels or wedges. There are also plenty of behind the scenes party snaps with designers and other glamorous types on Wanderlust, but my favorite posts are the more kooky ones. In one, the girls rode around in a cart in their building’s laundry room and in another taken this winter after a blizzard, they posed outdoors and built a stylish snow-woman they named “Anna Winter.”
The illustration here was inspired by a post where Emily and Abigail were wearing lots of leopard (a jacket, a scarf and even makeup though you can’t really see that here unfortunately!)–and mind you, this is what they wore to the gym. Kinda makes me feel guilty for never stepping into one at all. Anyway if you haven’t seen Wanderlust yet, you can check out the blog here.
Update: For this post I participated in the Sunday Sketches group organized by Blue Chair Diary.
