So, I recently took a trip back to NYC for my other other work and decided to take photos of the stuff I love in NYC. I went to the Tim Burton exhibit at MOMA and was planning to take photos and video for you guys until some lady with the Bronx claws decided to stop me. Sorry, I tried, people. The first photo was all I could get. It was the weekend of the big blizzard which wasn’t actually that bad- but I didn’t have to drive , so maybe it was bad for everyone else? Duuno. Anyway, I always wanted to walk over the Brooklyn Bridge. Even though I’ve been to NYC 5, 460,197 times, the opportunity never came up- until now. I had to share with you the ‘Hell, yes’ building. There you go. The bakery above is Lady M– only the most deliscioussssss Mille Crepe is served there. It’s like 100 crepes stacked between a bevy of cream and then ‘creme bruleed’ on top- soooooo yum. I actually dream about this. And here’s a cheezy myspace -style photo of me taken my me to show you how I actually dress. Now it’s your turn to make fun of my outfit!

Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck must not be able to wait for Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland, because I see some great influences in his Fall 2010 collection! Seriously, if you take away all the weird animal hoop skirts, it’s actually a pretty cool collection of girly, English equestrian with a spunk of color. I don’t know what’s up with the Bob the Builder male model , though. Check out Walter’s website and make sure to click on photos of his boutique in Antwerp. The register area is like a suspended Star Trek computer station. No hiding a glock behind those counters! Hahahaahahahaa…  I digress.

The Museum of Modern Art is dedicating an entire exhibit of Tim Burton’s work for an entire 5 months! That means I (and any other Tim Burton fans) can prepare a trip to NYC just to see this momentous occasion! From Willy Wonka’s demented children ( my FAVORITE!) to the ‘Beetlejuice‘ striped scarf and art works, a lifetime of his work will be on display until April 26, 2010. Of course, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ will be released in March 2010 to add more excitement to the whole Tim Burton experience! What’s your favorite Tim Burton movie? Mine has got to be ‘Sweeney Todd‘ and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory‘.

London -based designer, Kinder Aggugini’s Spring 2010 collection is perfect! It has vintage flair, fantastic polka dots (so retro!) and a 1950s silhouette that flatters any woman. The Mad-hatter ( or pimp hat)  hats are perfectly in-sync with the Alice in Wonderland – mania that Tim Burton is going to unleash in March 2010. I’m really happy that designers are bringing back some retro designs without the musty, old-lady ass odor attached to actual vintage pieces.  I really appreciate that. I have so many vintage pieces that I have no idea how to wash , and so it stinks and  then, I never wear them because I don’t want to be a ‘Pungent Monet’ ( looks good from afar, but stinks up close as opposed to a ‘Monet‘, which is beautiful from afar , but looks a mess upfront). Anyway, Kinder’s the bomb!

As a huge fan of ‘Alice in Wonderland’  and also a huge fan of Tim Burton’s work, the two combined is just  phenomenal! I was lucky enough to see the props and the costumes of this classic tale. Beautifully detailed costumes and fantastically created props lend that special charm that makes Tim Buton’s films so memorable and quirky. Only thing is we have to wait until March 2010 to see these costumes come to life by way of Johnny Depp, Helena Bonham Carter and Anne Hathaway.

Here are some of my favorite photos from this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. I always get excited going to Comic-Con , mainly because I love to see everyone’s fupe outfits. Although, I do enjoy the designer vinyl toy shops like, KidRobot, Giant Robot and Munky King. See tomorrow’s post for cool, collectible dolls unveiled at Comic-Con.

Until then…..Enjoy!

and here I am! (dressed for the Tim Burton “Alice in Wonderland” press conference!)


PS- I NEED this !

Alexis Mabille is a relative newcomer in the Haute Couture world and has proven himself (it’s a dude) to be in it for the long haul. That icy blue color is reminiscent of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ , which is one of my favorite books! I can’t wait for the Tim Burton film to come out by the way!  These flirty and feminine designs are like a grown up Sweet Lolita from Japan. Speaking of, I have one of my friend’s has several of the sweet lolita dresses from Japan and was wondering if it’s odd for a thirty something to wear it ? I ‘m just asking to see if I look foolish my friend would look silly. Please tell me if it looks ridiculous on me on her. Click here for photos of my doppelganger wearing a Sweet Lolita dress.

Lindsay Pemberton has found a new use for old teacups- She cuts and sands (hopefully!) them down to make porcelain bangles. I think that’s a cool idea, except for the fact that they are porcelain so you have to walk really slow and make no sudden movements for fear of a bloody wrist. This is not baby, cat or husband friendly jewelry. Basically, you wear this while sitting at home while watching TV- and not just any TV ,but something calm and boring,  like a marathon of ‘Masterpiece Theater’, because you don’t want to cut yourself while laughing , pointing or changing the channel. Actually, this belongs on a corpse to be on the safe side.
