^ I had checked out Deb's channel a while back and she does seem to go for more high street stuff. That's partly her budget and partly her style. Emma, on the other hand, has always been into labels. I think they balance each other out quite well as friends in that way.
I like that Emma doesn't act like other influenzas and only rub shoulders with people who wear head-to-toe designer, she has an actual friendship with Debs and, while their clothing budgets are on opposite ends of the spectrum, there's no judgement from either of them about the other. Its nice.
So, I don't think Emma was being derogatory by asking Debs for input, she was just asking a friend to help because she hasn't done it before. I don't buy that Debs has a better eye for spotting flaws; I think it's like @faceface said, she was uncomfortable and needed Debs for support when trying out something unfamiliar to her. But even then, it still is normal to ask your friend to join you when you're trying something new and make an outing of it. *shrug*
I do concur that she's dug herself a hole with the 'sustainability' move. She's clearly trying to find a way to continue shopping and creating content whilst being sustainable, which seems to equal pre-loved bargain hunting in her mind. I still feel the better option is to make capsule wardrobes out of what she already has and for her to create styling videos around those pieces. Adding more stuff to her wardrobes, even if it is thrifted, is wasteful considering the volume she already owns.
Also, quite excited to see the Canada vlog. She seemed to be really relaxed (although I didn't see Simon smile once in her stories! hopefully her's happier in the vlog) and the scenery looked incredible. That will be a nice bit of variety for her content.
