It's only been two days, and we've already had our asses beat down by the J'Adorably hysterical glamour that is fashion week.

Where do we start?

Tuesday night, we met up with our J'Adorable little sister in crime, Sarah Cristobal, at the Van Cleef & Arpels party at the Hammerstein Ballroom. It was quite chaotic when we arrived. The fashion show had just ended, and we ran into so many of our J'Adorable friends.....Andrew Saffir, Daniel Benedict, Hope Atherton, Rufus Albemarle, Patrick McDonald (who was with the LEGENDARY Julie Newmar!!!), Ben Widdicombe, Lee Carter, Cator Sparks, Emma Snowdon-Jones....we could go on for days. It was fun, but WAY too loud!!! We have trouble hearing ourselves think let alone trying to hear all these fashionistas cackling over each other!

After countless glasses of champagne, we ended up leaving to head over to the Trovata show to support our good friend, John Whitledge. You'll remember him from our crazy ass trip to Istanbul with Zac Posen! We had the best time with our J'Adorable fans....Kate Schelter, Spencer Morgan, Neil Rasmus, Jessica Ramakrishnan, etc.

Just when we thought we had had enough, we were hauled over to Bungalow 8 for the afterparty! We can't tell you what happened there because, you know, it's Bungalow 8, and we're not allowed to spill the beans! We got home at 3:00am, which is sort of early for fashion week standards, but we had work to do the next day!

We woke up with a terrible headache on Wednesday morning, but that's to be expected during fashion week. We had so much to do, so we pulled ourselves through our hangover and headed over to the Yigal Azrouel show where we met up with Oliver Kramer & Sarah Cristobal (pictured above) with whom we would begin our coverage of fashion week for NPR!

We had the best time covering the shows, but the big black phallic microphone in our face was quite unnerving. You'd think we'd be used to things of that size being shoved in our mouth, but we were not! TRUST!

After the show, we hitched a ride with NYC's most J'Adored socialite, Fabiola Beracasa, back up to the offices to reflect on fashion and what it means to us today. HAHAHA. Whatever.

Then we were off to see Marchesa by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig (pictured at the very top). It was a clusterfuck of celebrity and NYC's most powerful, us included bien sur! It was hard to do our coverage when we were constantly being stopped by the likes of Naomi Watts, Nicole Esposito, Laura Brown, Elisa Lipsky-Karazs, Graydon Carter, Rene Arsenault, etc. Who knew it would be such a scene?!

But the most J'Adorable part wasn't the show itself, but the walk over to the show. We had stopped by Tia Pol for a quick glass of Spanish white wine, and while we were walking down West 22nd Street, a black SUV pulls up to the curb and who steps out three feet in front of us????? It was none other than our total future wife to be, Linda Evangelista!!! We almost fainted, but we didn't because she was all over us trying to kiss us hello, and we had to keep it together! J'Adore!

After we finished all of our NPR coverage and commentary for the day, we headed over to the Earnest Sewn boutique for the launch of their pop up shop, Repetto. It was a madhouse of our nearest and dearest....Abby Gardner, Liz Hehir, Lauren Davis, Genevieve Jones, Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony, Rebekah McCabe, Chiara Clemente, Waris Ahluwalia, Nina Clemente (working her high heeled magic on her Schwinn above), Martin Marks, etc.

We were already wrecked. When we're at these events, we sometimes feel like a bee in a bee hive when all the bees are clammoring all over each other communicating and talking and connecting but no one really knows what the other one is talking about because they all just found a flower that they want to tell the others about and they don't know who to listen to first because all the flowers being talked about are so beautiful?!?! Does that make any sense? It does to us, and that's all that matters.

Anyway, tomorrow is another day. We're only going to see one menswear show, and that's of our good friend, Andrew Buckler. He's a GENIUS. When we tell you he's got rocker couture down to a science, you know we mean it!

We have to go to bed, so hopefully, we'll be back at you with some J'Adorable fashion week news very soon! J'ADORE!!!
