Travel: Parasol Parade in Thailand


This photo reminded me of the parasol parade that I witnessed during my trip to Thailand and so I wanted to share some travel photos from last month.

In Chiang Mai, we were lucky enough to watch strolling beauty pageant contestants march in the Parasol parade.

The updos were so pretty.  here are some close-ups!

Here is a shot of the parade walkers.

And here are some of the pageant contestants biking by!

The whole neighborhood was a feast for the eyes.

Don’t you just love the color explosion?

I was estatic to be surrounded by so much color and creativity.  Everywhere I looked, I found so many exotic, interesting finds.

I was so tempted to bring back a custom-painted parasol when I saw this catalog of images.  But really, when would I ever use it in NYC?

What would you have had painted?



Fab Cam: Harajuku Fashions

I’ve been neglecting the blog due to a recent vacation, move and preparation for a new job.  But I do have some amazing photos to share from my trip to Japan where the harajuku fashions were as fascinating and eye-popping as I had hoped.  It was crazy.  You walk down this one area of Tokyo and all of a sudden, you’d swear it was Halloween – only it isn’t.  It’s simply a bunch of Japanese teens rebelling from their routine school uniforms and prancing about in the most outlandish fashions.  I couldn’t believe my eyes and I could not get enough.  Check this out.

And if you think the above was wild, check out the two guys I spotted.
