The holiday of love is one that should be shared with all of your friends, not just your beau. Inspired by a Parks and Recreation’s episode on “GALentine’s Day,” I started my own “GIRLentine’s Day” (yeah, not the same ring to it, but “GAL” means something else to those in the Japanese fashion circle so […]Read More GIRLentine’s Day at the Vampire Lounge (Yes, all of these things are real)
Days at the Chubby Bunny workshop have been getting more and more hectic as we come closer to the big fashion show and pop up store debut at the Sweet Streets opening party on November 19th! [EDIT: Sorry guys, I keep messing up the dates. But it’s the 19th!!) I’ve neglected to give some background info […]Read More Chubby Bunny + SPANK! (A love story!)
Friday, July 29th was insanity in a bottle. Caro and I hopped off the bullet train, made it to our hotel room, and then managed to get ready and back out the door by 4pm-ish! The Harajuku Kawaii event was being held in honor of model agency Asobisystem‘s 4th Anniversary, featuring fashion shows, musical performances, […]Read More Japan Day 7: Asobisystem presents “Harajuku Kawaii” event + peek at PARCO’s Bearbricks’ Exhibit
The next day I was pretty sleepy and groggy, but managed to human-up and get out to lunch with Caro to meet up with Nico and Chikuwaemil! They are both fantastic artists, and such nice people. It was Caro and my first time meeting them in person, though we had worked together before on a […]Read More Japan Day 6: Osaka nostalgia and Eimi’s Art Show!
Ah Wednesday! July 27th, we shim-shammied on over to Harajuku for some work meetings, some of which involved taking these photos, and some of which involved sitting in a tiny office talking numbers for a while. Eek! It was a nice breezy day in Harajuku, so we were amped to be able to walk around […]Read More Japan Day 5: Cruisin in Harajuku, Crashin in Osaka
On Friday, July 15, I continued my busy weekend with a “Welcome (back)” dinner that I organized for our buddy Tavuchi, owner of the brand SPANK!, who is visiting from Japan for some work projects. Tavuchi is a really fun gal to hang around, and I was lucky enough to get to know her during […]Read More Culver City Adventuretimes! City Tavern, Tavuchi, and COOP at Corey Helford
I’ve been very quiet this weekend, due to the events in Japan. Having lived there for a number of years, I have been frantic getting information on friends living there in different parts of Japan, and completely devastated by the news coming out of the country. I’ve been functioning in a half-awake state, but am […]Read More “PrayForJapan” Art Fundraiser! THIS Saturday 11/19/11
I have been severely negligent of this blog lately! In large part, I blame/thank San-X for that, as I’ve been running around for Bubble Punch prepping and executing the party. It’s been a super exhausting week, but now that it’s all over, I can go back to concentrating on Chubby Bunny things, and redoing the […]Read More Crazy Rilakkuma Times!
This past Saturday, I attended the amazing gallery opening for Natalia Fabia’s “Fashionable Aftertaste Without End,” exhibition, for which my friend and I posed for a painting!
