There’s a pose in yoga called Warrior III in which you are balancing on one leg with the other leg stretched perpendicular behind you, arms at your side, and head stretching forward (that was a terrible description, so I’m going to illustrate with a gif).
Once a week or so I enjoy transforming my bedroom into my own personal yoga studio thanks to the abundance of videos online (Popsugar.com!). In one particular video the instructor leads us (me) through the Warrior III pose and further explains the pose by saying something like, “It’s as if you’re being pulled in two opposite directions – I know we can all relate to that!” For me, this week in particular, truer words have never been spoken! Between preparing for impending deadlines and finishing up production on the winter issue of Willow and Sage, I reminded myself that busy is good, I like having a full yet doable to-do list. The week before we close the issues and send them to the printer is crunch time and everyone feels it, but luckily, the girls I work with know when to pull out a Buzzfeed list to relieve the pressure and make everyone crack up.
Also, New York Fashion Week. Flipping through show photos is always a dream, but this season especially I enjoyed and almost preferred reading the daily digests of sites like Man Repeller, New York Times Fashion & Style, and Vogue Runway. There’s something conversational, analytical, and academic about a runway show review, which made it feel as though I was interacting with the collections more so than if I were to click through a slideshow of every single garment (not every garment … come on!) like I’ve done in years past.
My curiosity to see some of my favorite designers’ collections did lead me to Vogue Runway’s archive of every. single. show., and some of my favorite looks, along with street style snaps, are below.
Enjoy, and happy weekend!
