Models and Dogs

We had a lot going on here in New York this weekend. Between Valentine's Day, Chinese New Year, President's Day, you would think we had enough. But oh, no! It is New York Fashion Week and the Westminster Dog Show. I have to admit, the dogs are cuter. The models actually look twiggy and scary in person.

First to Fashion Week. I was on a mission to get my mom's birthday present. Thus, the walking sneakers. It was a sprint up to 47th street and I was all about comfort:

I didn't fit in with the black and heels at Bryant Park, but had to stand long enough to get one shot. I did decide smokey purple eyes are in this year. Fashion tip from Jill, right there for you. This is the last year Fashion Week will be held at Bryant Park. It will be moving to Lincoln Center, after a 2 year search for a new venue. Apparently, it's grown too big for the park and will have more space further uptown. And additional underground parking, and 13,000 square feet of additional space.

I did see a few shows being set up in the larger galleries in Chelsea, which provide some interesting spaces.

If you are lucky, you'll get a peak of the dogs that compete in the Westminster Dog show around Madison Square Garden. This dog was following it's owner down the street (no leash even). I actually had to run a few blocks to catch up with them to get this shot. I have no idea what kind of dog this is, either.

It's a great mix here in New York, this weekend was no exception.

Thanks for the fashion tip Jill. The summer I lived in NYC (YEARS ago), I always remember that the models looked really wierd in person. They are like athletes and STAND OUT in the streets of NYC. Nobody in real life is that tall and thin, right?

I couldn't stop staring at one girl on the subway...she just looked so perfect/bizarre and so very made up. There is something unnatural when your legs don't touch each other, I've decided. It's not very attractive. I guess I like curves!

I love that there is always so much going on in NYC. There's a great buzz in the air when it's fashion week. I never made it to Westminster, but I'm sure it would be fun. We went to one huge dog show in the desert and it was a ton of fun.
