ckparis, balenciaga and true blood



hey you all, how is your weekend going? tell me...

true blood is on tonight on hbo. watch it if you dare... i'm obsessed with it. love, sex and immortality. what else could a fourth dimension visitor want?
oh yeah, boots, and shoes and bags...

moi? balenciaga black leather moto booties, bliss lau body chain , et al.

today's shopping conversation:

barneys SA 1: where did you get that alexander wang vest?

ckparis: why?

barneys SA 1: where did you get that vest?

ckparis: why? you can buy one right here....

barneys SA 1: but where did you buy yours?

ckparis to barneys SA 2: why is he asking me that?

barneys SA 2: i don't know... it is strange...

barneys SA 3 to ckparis: hi, i know you.

barneys SA 3 to SA 2: this girl {ckparis} is a fierce fashionista...

barneys SA 3 to ckparis: you were the first one to carry a balenciaga motorcycle bag.

ckparis: yeah, you do know me...


anyone else remember when the bal bags were kept in a secret locked drawer at barneys and you had to know the password language to actually get the SA to sell one to you?
not anymore....
and the original bal moto bags were chevre, not agneau...

see you on the astral plane.

Funny story. But I think that you are not fashionista. You simply very stylish woman with good sense of humour and you posess your own style.

yea i think you go BEYOND the label of fashionista! regarding the material of bal bags, ignorant me still thought that up to now, balenciaga bags were goat skin. so the current ones are lamb then?

chauss said...

marina, thanks.

izzy, the new bal bags are NOT chevre anymore...i am not sure what leather they use this season...

rand, thanks. it wasnt an actual "password", but if you didnt talk the talk, you wouldn't be able to buy one of the very limited quantiites on "hold".
very different leather and quantities since gucci group bought bal.
btw, where are you going to shchool in nyc?
