A Stone Throw's Away

If you've ever had the chance to stop by Bryant Park shops during the holidays this past winter, you may have noticed a cute accessories vendor known as Stone Flower.

Necklaces with cute bows, earrings in the shape of cupcakes, and headbows  that would work for your next Lolita coordinate.

Luckily if you are in the city, Stone Flower has a physical location right here in New York City at the South Street Seaport. It has two stores within the South Street Seaport mall: one solely for accessories and one for clothes.

The clothes are often flowing summer floral dresses, fur-line hooded cardigans for winter, as well cute hats and skirts. Perfect for girls who want to feel feminine and girly all the time, or even just throwing on something after your fun-filled day meeting your fellow Lolitas.
There are a lot of items like cardigans and cute blouses that can work with Lolita fashion. Even polka-dotted umbrellas for that random chance you get stuck in the rain.

...And if you have already have that eye for finding offbrand Lolita looks, you even find an adorable JSK for a more casual style.

Compared to brand clothing like Angelic Pretty or Baby, the Stars Shine Bright, Stone Flower is a great place to go if you need something for a last-minute meet or haven't bought anything Lolita-related lately.

If you're not into clothes and just need something to add on to that already great coordinated, you should by pass the first floor shop and head to the second floor.  With its signature pink and white color scheme, it's a store that catches your eye and draws you in.

Stone Flower is a place for accessories for that Lolita who wants to move on up from Claire's, or needs accents that will make her great coordinate even better.

From flower earrings to cameo necklaces to hair clips to a cute wallet, there at least something for every type of girly girl. Everything is easily displayed for windowshoppers and buyers alike. With plenty of mirrors around the store, you can see for yourself if the blue bird earrings or if a rhinestone cupcake necklace is more your style.

That inner girl of yours will be squeeing at the cuteness even if you are not.

2012 Holiday Window Displays in NYC

Holidays are often the best times for tourists with chance to see New York City during their vacation.  For New Yorkers its also a time to brood and avoid all the any plans that involve remotely going near main points of traffic.

However there is one that thing that both tend to enjoy is the holiday window displays.  People line up and wait just to see what will light up and what new themes stores have come up with.

Like the ice rinks that open, the special markets that open during this time of year, stores get into the season by decorating their windows with images that inspire anyone to take their camera out. I personally recommend starting midtown and walking up. Depending on the time of day you can visit them all in one day - be prepared to brave crowds and have your walking shoes on.

See Bloody, Bloody Andrew Jackson for $50

Ever imagined what any of our founding fathers would be if they were a twenty-something, emo rock star? From the mind of Michael Friedman, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson is a musical rendition about just that. Dealing with populism, the Indian Removal act, and of course making time for his wife Rachel, Andrew Jackson has complicated life story that can only be illustrated through song and dance.

The producers of the show would like to show their political support with their "Jackson for a Grant" initiative which offers $50 tickets to the show through November 24th.

Just use the code BBJVOTE when you purchase your tickets on or purchase tickets at the Bernard B. Jacobs Theater box office (242 West 45th Street, Manhattan); or by call (212) 947-8844.
