what did we celebrate

it's halloween today. while i myself have no...real excitement in dressing up, prancing around and joining the crazy throngs of people that will flood the streets of manhattan tonight...i must say it's quite the affair for a good number of this city's population.

this is my thinking concerning parsons students in particular celebrating halloween: either you go all out with the costume or you do nothing at all. there is no in between half attempt.

one article of news surrounding the festivities that did catch my eye was that the artist (body painter) andy golub will be painting a number of topless women for the 36th annual new york halloween parade for the third year running. they will ride around in two vehicles also painted by the artist and will apparently look like "surreal characters" (melodika) - and he's been doing this body painting in public spaces throughout new york since 2006! it'd be pretty interesting to catch him in action. not that i would volunteer to be one of his canvases...

anyway: happy halloween for those of you keen on dressing up and eating candy.
(the latter of which i am also a fan of...)


what did we quickly post...

much love

this is how i wish i actually dressed and looked. i at least have the hair and sometimes the "color" scheme done. in an alternate universe maybe this is me.


what did we peruse: tommy ton

i am about to unhesitatingly make the assumption that many of you that will read this post have also heard of/read/know something about JAK & JIL and thus have seen of style photographer tommy ton's work. only by perusing this site did i learn that my homecity (is that a phrase...) of hong kong and the power fashion chain lane crawford asked tommy ton to style hunt in hk!

thus - five of his hong kong fashion photos posted on the lane crawford blog

i picked my favorite of the ones he took in the city, supposedly the site will continue to post new ones. wish i could have caught a glimpse of him.

i imagine he spent a lot of time in causeway bay around times square...

oh red taxi. how i miss you and your low fares.

also: is it so awful of me that i think his photos taken in milan/paris/new york/london are so much better? or is it just hong kong style that i can't agree with? and what does that make me?


what did we accessorize: bunnies

bunnies of my own!

super cute sasha for h+m campaign (only img i've posted twice)

ok so i've been meaning to write this post for a while now. it's like my love for bunnies coincided with the fashion world and trendy accessories and came up with what now has been seen everywhere and adorning every head. i'm fascinated by the timeline and the photos...

madonna: the worst of the bunnies...

ali michael: the best of the bunny bows : )

marc jacobs spring RTW 09. multitudes of brightly colored bow topped models.

and of course where it all began. marc jacobs sends his girls down the LV RTW fall 09 runway.

and for more bunny ears as spotted on celebrities?
