Chubby Bunny + SPANK! (A love story!)

4 Nov

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 on this mighty awesome collaboration so I thought I’d say a few words before giving you all a sneak peek at the goods!

If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that SPANK! owner Tavuchi and I have been friends for a little while, with her coming to the US pretty often, and me hanging out with her and her friends in Tokyo while I was there a few months ago, and even staying at her totally cute apartment

We had been talking about doing a project together since spring of this year, and wanted to do a collaboration fashion show and pop up store. As the fates would have it, we were able to find a venue for our ideas at the Sweet Streets exhibition! It was a match made in heaven, since Sweet Streets (which I helped to produce and exhibited in last year) focuses on Japanese pop culture and art, and that’s sort of where SPANK! an Chubby Bunny fall in ❤

Working with Tavuchi these past couple of months prepping for the show have been really fun and interesting. It’s been really great to be able to work with such a distinguished brand in the Japanese fashion community, and it totally helps that Tavuchi and I totally think on the same wavelength of wierdness when it comes to a lot of things!

Our fashion show and pop up show are just one aspect of Sweet Streets. Make sure you guys take a good look at all of the amazing art that will be on display at the gallery that night!

The SPANK! x CHUBBY BUNNY POP UP SHOP will feature an array of items from our normal stores, PLUS exclusive items from our respective brands for this event! Chubby Bunny will debuting our APPAREL line at this event as well! But that’s not all! SPANK! and Chubby Bunny will also be releasing extremely limited COLLABORATION products! Photos and details about these products will be hush hush until closer to the event so stay tuned!

Additionally, the SPANK! x CHUBBY BUNNY FASHION SHOW will feature models selected from our nationwide model search, looking for fans of our brands that exuded personality, style, and general awesomeness! The fashion show starts at 8PM, and there is SURE to be a crowd, so we urge fans to come as EARLY as you can to line up!! The show will feature models wearing a mix of SPANK! and Chubby Bunny apparel and accessories, with makeup sponsored by our awesome friends at Sugarpill Cosmetics!

Alright, enough yapping! Check out the sneak peek of products from SPANK! and CHUBBY BUNNY below! (we’ll be doing another sneak peek post in a week so make sure to check back soon!)

Hair History: Fizzy the human My Little Pony

15 Oct

I am totally into gradient EVERYTHING these days. Can you tell?

I finally got around to fixing my hair color yesterday and this is how it turned out! It’s the first time I’ve tried top to bottom gradient by myself, so I’m pretty proud of how it turned out! When I retouch I might make the blue a little darker, though!

After I did it, I was trying so hard to remember what the color combo reminded me of… and then I remembered! A My Little Pony! This isn’t the first time this ahs happened with my hair dying, haha. My MLP expert friend Caro reminded me that these are the main colors for Fizzy!

Does the color combo remind anyone else of anything?

I’m such an 80’s Baby at heart…!

I’ll be really busy these next few months ramping up new stuff for the events I’l be vending/hosting! If you’re in the LA area, you can check some of them out!

Japan Day 11/LAST DAY!: Koenji is my new love

8 Sep

After a pleasant bullet train ride, I made my way to Koenji to spend my last day in Japan with Tavuchi!

She was kind enough to let me stay at her place for one night before I headed back to America. She was pretty amped to show me more of her town and all the fun things to do. thankfully, it was a nicely overcast day where I wasn’t melting in the Tokyo heat for once!

As I mentioned before, Koenji is a great little place just 2 stops west of Shinjuku station on the JR Sobu line train. It’s calm and friendly, and sort of like not being in Tokyo at all!

Tavuchi helped me lug my heavy suitcase up her 3 flights of stairs to her apartment, and we prettied ourselves up a bit for a stroll through her hood. Tavuchi also blogged about our date day, too, so you can look at her post and pics there ❤

Before we left her place, I saw this amazing thing on her coffee table. Tavuchi said it was her roommates'.... IT'S AMAZING.

Our first stop wast to visit Tavuchi’s friend Toko (who I met on Day 3 in Japan), who runs the store Hikari in Koenji! Hikari is full of great vintage, remade, and original clothing from all over. It’s super quirky in there, I love it!

A mini shrine in the middle of the store. All of the photographs are either customers or Toko's friends she snapped while out and about.

Knickknacks and paddywacks galore!

How cute is Toko? She is giving us a proper farewell ❤

More of the day and pics after the jump!
