Bill Cunningham Facades

Wednesday, July 30, 2014


I have always been a fan of Bill Cunningham. I became even more fascinated with his work after watching the documentary, Bill Cunningham New York. When I heard about his exhibit at the New York Historical society, I knew my family and I had to attend. 

I was totally shocked by what I saw. 

Instead of a retrospective on his New York Times work, the photo series displayed was a take on fashion as compared to different buildings within NYC. 

I was blown away.

My mind is failing me, but I don't seem to remember this part of his career being mentioned in the documentary. Bill's creativity never ceases to amaze me. The photographs displayed were utterly stunning - partly for their composition and also for the enviable outfits that were featured. 

It was interesting to see a different part of Bill's career. I think it's safe to say that Bill Cunningham is one of the greatest fashion photographers of our time.

My mom hates it. 
The BF likes it.
And I love it. 

All unique pieces of clothing are controversial.

Danji

Wednesday, July 23, 2014


For those of you who don’t know, my BF is Korean. Naturally, we take our Korean food very seriously. So seriously, that after a 3 and a half hour ride home from the Hamptons, where we arrived at a house we were locked out of, we took a train directly to one of our favorite Korean restaurants in Flushing.

We are that dedicated.

When my mom proposed we try out Danji for our weekly dinner, the BF and I were skeptical. The words, “Korean & fusion” do not make us excited – we only deal with the real thing. However, I was pleasantly surprised by Danji. The food was good, particularly the inclusion of chorizo in the kimchi fried rice. 

People rave about this restaurant. The BF and I liked it, but I wouldn't run back to it when I’m craving Korean dishes. There is nothing like Korean food from Flushing & Korea-town. Unfortunately, even Danji cannot compete with authenticity.
