Animals as fashion accessories: in theory the concept is tired or was never awake at all. But this dog was eating the attention like a Sweet Tooth cupcake.
La Suprette is a sale of artist-made goodies and treats from Sweet Tooth of the Tiger just in time for the gift-giving season. The fun continues today: Sunday 12.14.08 till 6pm 159 John Street [at Front St.]
Sequins and a Davey Crockett hat. I guess a girl can get away with stealing random clothes out of a consignment shop on the Upper East Side, putting it all on at once, and working the crazyforeignhipster vibe.
And there she goes . . . off to make her signature caviar-coon stew with plenty of champagne. And to round things out: a rifle show for entertainment. Seriously though: love it.
These gentlemen were overheard saying (in reference to the dance-stylings of Nabob's doppleganger): "See. That's what happens when you wear those tight pants -- it cuts off circulation to your brain." Well . . . different strokes for different folks, I guess.
this kind of color coordination can go awry in the wrong hands but here is well done -- a fashion semi-professional no doubt . . .
And finally, a fashion don't: This girl looks great, but was caught budging in line for the bathrooms at Union Pool. Be warned: Union Pool has a bathroom gaurd. He is watching. He will intercept you and make you wait even longer to go to the bathroom. Your cute haircut will not get you out of this. Neither will your big mouth. The whole thing was hilarious. And more evidence that most American adults are just children in disguise. But worse -- they are free to indulge themselves in (usually) unchecked instant gratification.
This moment was just so symbolic of why everything is a massive mess in our world right now: immature, selfish, "grown-ups" who never really thought about what it means to be a steward of society. Now if we could just get a hall monitor for Wall Street, not to mention the effing Pentagon, White House . . . .
: public art or random scene? : whatever you call it, hopefully these pictures lift your spirits a little on this rainy day. I think this might be banksy . . . Anyone know?
apartment dialogue! I love the notes people leave (or correct) for one another when crammed in a small building . . .
I wasn't sure why I took a photo of this abandoned slice of pizza until my friend remarked, "Something about pepperoni pizza is so '80s." It's true. Couldn't this be the opening shot of a scene from Sixteen Candles or Pretty in Pink?
: sweet teeth and dress-up games at the fred flare opening :
Sweet Tooth of the Tiger set up shop for a Bake Sale -- minus the Sale (treats compliments of fred flare!) so I guess it was just a Bake. Meanwhile, their trusty sidekick doled out champagne and beer. Horray!
Playing dress up in a store -- always fun. Note: sweet earrings from indie earring designer Kula (firstname.lastname@example.org). I love them!
Nevermind the tu-tu -- check out that rock! That's right, I took all my student loan money out of the bank to invest in something that can't hyperinflate. Plus, it's always fun to be engaged to yourself . . . alright, I'm kidding of course. Geez, I hope you knew that -- I'd never buy a diamond!
The competition -- luckily, a peace treaty was formed. I would've hated to see the Tiger unleashed.
