Not being a ‘Baby Person,’ I had never heard of Cybex, but apparently they are experts in child car seats, baby carries, strollers and other baby gear, for those who are baby-inclined. And their store in the Shops at Hudson Yards sure did design a fetching Window Display that is just exploding with soft Pinkness. Sigh.
On Sunday mornings, I go for a walk that often takes me through the historic district around Irving Place. There are lots tiny boutiques in the area and it;s fun to window shop.I spotted this Hot Pink Poodle Candle on display in the window of a place called Takamichi Beauty Room (located at 125 East 17th Street) which bills itself as a wellness store and ‘cabinet of curiosities.’ Despite the fact that the Poodle is perched atop a box for a candle by Cire Trudon (which retail for over $100 each) it is in fact a much more affordable product of Photerian and retails for just $15. Sweet.
This Pink Poodle Christmas Ornament (priced at just $14.50!) was spotted in the Simply Fresh Gift Shop in San Marino, California. They stock all kinds of cool gifts and slightly retro seasonal decorations, and I always enjoy shopping there when I am in LA for the holidaze!
Do you enjoy the work of artist Nick Cave? I sure do. I especially like his very fun Sound Suits, but I also enjoy that he can change it up while maintaining his very distinctive design aesthetic. Nick Cave!
On view now at Jack Shainmans’s West 24th Street space is Cave’s body of work entitled Rescue. The series includes sculptures that incorporate found ceramic dogs sitting on furniture within elaborate grottos or dreamlike dens.

Okay, this story is totally stupid and just another example of how a few negative, overly conservative killjoy douchebags will spoil something cool for everybody because they can’t stand anyone doing something that is the least bit unusual or eccentric. Apparently, a hairstylist in Denver started dying her pet poodle pink in order to raise awareness of, and funds for, the fight against Breast Cancer. Some hater complained to the Police because the dog is pink, so the woman gets slapped with a $1000 fine! Holy Mother of God, the dog is not being injured in any way and a woman using beet juice or Kool-Aid to make her dog pink isn’t killing anyone. What a bunch of fascists.
