Pet Costume Pageant!

There's the annual MET Costume Gala and then there's the annual Coney Island Pet Costume Pageant! We were there this weekend on the famed red carpet boardwalk to see the cuteness in action! And we're glad to say that all the pets and their owners enjoyed the event and will hopefully be back next year, unlike some people. We're looking at you, Gwyneth Paltrow.

Little girl Chloe and her cute guinea pig Cookie Dough won 3rd place wearing a pink and purple tutu!
Little Chihuahua Pepito won 2nd place in his Uncle Sam costume and yellow booties. How patriotic and fashion forward! 

And the 1st place winner was a poodle named Baby, also a 1st place winner two years ago, arrived  in peace via flying saucer wearing the color du jour  for all poodles this season: green!

We would also like to give props to the hostess and her very shiny dress, hair and makeup. Work it!

A Little Bit Patriotic

In all honesty, we are not really surprised by what we see on the NYC streets anymore. Growing up in NY, we feel like we have seen everything. And then some. So it was a huge surprise, and a bit of an adrenaline rush, when we spotted this girl walking, dressed all patriotic. Ish. Kind of.  We should have asked her what her inspiration was for the outfit-was it a political statement or a personal statement? Does she collect Americana clothes? How did she come about to own these pieces? Did she dress like so because "she can?" Oh, heck, the lines have blurred. Better yet, what would John Stewart and Stephen Colbert say? Do you think this takes the stars and stripes into uncharted territory? Tell us!
