On Sunday I decided to ignore my wretched spring allergies and go to the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens for the last day of the Cherry Blossom Festival. It was packed, and lots of people dressed up for the occassion. It was like being in Japan for the day…

Speaking of Cherry Blossom Girls, has any one seen The Cherry Blossom Girl pour Etam? I wish they shipped to the US!
Stay tuned, there should be a big spike in posting now that it’s street style season (more specifically, not winter). I’m looking forward to being outside with my camera much, much more.
SXSW is a veritable smorgasbord of music- there are shows at auditoriums, in bars, back yards, street corners, churches, alley ways, hotel rooms…pretty much anywhere you can think of at every second of the day. I landed on Wednesday evening and headed straight out to Duran Duran (girls on film! the chauffeur! hungry like a wolf!), but the surprise highlight of the week may have been Austra who opened for the Kills at the Domino Records showcase. These girls have moves, and I’m quite sure everyone (and I do mean everyone) fell in love that night. Definitely keep an eye our for these Toronto up and comers and take a listen to their album.
Below are some of my personal highlights:
Simon Le Bon!
Weekend playing at the Insound showcase
Pitchfork x Christianity
Dancer @ Big Freedia
Alison Mosshart of The Kills
Dan Deacon at StyleCaster
Hunx and His Punx
Tim of the Fresh and Onlys
My only regret is not getting to see more of Austin on this whirlwind trip. I’ll definitely be heading back soon for a proper tour…and perhaps some serious vintage shopping. Stay tuned for SXSW Street Style!

Just a glimpse into the week, since I’m still trying to get better shooting at night and was only able to attend events in the evening (full time job, y’all). Even though I don’t work in fashion anymore- or least not in the same capacity, fashion week is completely exhausting and I’m happy it’s over. Until February at least…
That’s a wrap!
