good morning readers. this picture has an alice-in-wonderland feel to me. which door do i choose? hmmmmm. for me, the glass is always half full. i have discovered for others, the very same glass is 3/4 empty!!! why is that? color meditation does wonders for raising resonance. more later.

i am the ultimate lounge lizard. i did do stairs this weekend. so, can one still be a lounge lizard and still run stairs regularly? i don't think the two concepts are mutually exclusive... of course, i don't run stairs with my loub thigh highs...
how was your day? any new purchases? i guess my accessory du jour is my lap top. stay tuned for new pictures. see you on the astral plane.
good morning. monday, monday...........espresso please.... these are my louboutin cactus booties which seem to be getting a lot of magazine press again...
my photographer is returning from the oscars today so i should have new pix up this week. lots more later...

good morning, good afternoon, whatever... i need espresso maintenant! i gotta do stairs, lots of stairs today...accessories. yes. my fedora shot was taken at my favorite french cafe this side of the pond. my hat is so eclectic because it is black and had a black satin band when it was new. i fell in love with it immediately when i saw it at a vintage store because the band had faded to a ragged, eggplant color. my fedora has attitude. have a great sunday, and you know, on any given sunday... see you on the astral plane.

i hope you are having a great weekend. today's accessory du jour is an aa gray unisex scarf. hopefully, the pictures illustrate how versatile it can be with right attitude. i featured this scarf today because it is a fabulous low priced item that can totally change your outfit. see above. go out and grab one. they come in a multitude of colors and the material is totally smooshy delicious.
please ask questions or comment if you want more information on any of the other items in the picture. more later, i am off to enjoy the outdoors, and to shop, of course.
p.s. matt, i will take your advice and feature some of my thomas wylde first edition stuff soon.
salutations. hope you are all set for the weekend. please let me know what you want to see and hear about. i want to make my blog more interactive with my readers. dont be shy... if i don't like your suggestions, i won't listen. and if i do, well, you might just get to share some of my special dark chocolate. yummy...
anyway, the add on du jour to the usual chauss bracelets is my hermes black leather kelly dog. and talking about woof woofs, i got a new picture of roxie who is doing her best to adjust to life as a 90210 resident. and d. and a.? well, they are taking care of business and roxie... so, go out and have a frozen margarita. see you later on the astral plane.

hey all, hope you had a great day. the featured accessory du jour is my hermes cdc ebene bracelet with palladium hardware. i am just not into the hermes enamel clic clacs or bangles. too ladylike for my taste. good for a cup of tea when i need a serious jolt of espresso....i love it so much i want to get another one with gold hardware. so rocker chic. and the french cure? that's what i call my favorite french cafe this side of the pond... see you on the astral plane.

ok, at matt's request i am posting a better pix of my barry kieselstein-cord alligator belt. it is really a piece of art. signed and numbered and very heavy! the airport security staff is mesmorized by this piece. it gets passed around to be "checked out" and not because they think it is a weapon. and of course, i insist on wearing it every time i fly so i have to allow extra time for this inspection...
matt, i had this pix already so i will take a couple of more with the 'gator as my focal point in the not too distant future.
and while i am dissecting this pix, i have the standard chauss bracelet assortment with the addition of a hermes kelly dog bracelet. (btw woof woof roxie is adjusting to her new life in 90210, a little confused but she will adjust...) i also have a white gucci snow glam bowler in the pix.... ok guys, more on hermes bracelets and gucci bowlers another time.... see you on the astral plane.
hi. there is just something so sweet about my black patent distressed 'gale. so smooshy yummy and practical. i haven't even taken my new black distressed ostrich handle 'gale out of its dustbag yet... dont know if you can see the detail, but i have on barry kieselstein-cord's classic alligator buckle. more later...

p.s. rumour has it m. has been continuing the chauss stairmaster-in-the-sky program. keep it up, m.

well, the boys have checked in and seen stars. el paso star was first. apparently, the el paso star has increased in size and wattage over the years. it is now on every day and can be seen for miles and miles. and the boys have traveled miles and miles. next star was spotted on the welcome to arizona sign. and mountains... well, these guys are not in miami anymore..
starbucks, anyone? i located an starbucks on I10 in eloy, arizona and the boys made it. looks like d. snapped a. enjoying a coffee before continuing the sojourn. rumor has it they plan on having dinner in LA! stay tuned....
and me? well, meditation and frozen pomegrante margaritas... see you on the astral plane. i gotta check on the boys now...
Sunday, February 17, 2008
well, d. and a. and woofwoof, roxie, left 33131 on a road trip to 90210. so far, they have passed new orleans, alabama, houston and parts unknown to this writer at the moment. i do know they are not in miami with that speed limit.... oh, this writer was informed a starbucks was finally located outside of houston after a 200 mile search this am. stay tuned for the future adventures of d., a., and roxie in their quest for beverly hills, ca....
and... kudos to m. for doing his first chauss stairmaster-in-the sky work out!

this was the largest of the gucci fall/winter'07 bags. the size worked for this pix. not as practical for me IRL. i prefer the gucci snow glam bowler, the same shape as the cult tom ford gucci blondie bowler. i like the black rubber GGs on these bags. sorta cool, sorta rocker, makes the gucci bag look like it wants to go out and have fun. n'est pas?

there is something so cool, so smooshy about my givenchy distressed black patent maxi nightingale. i have it for about a year and it justs better and better. i was able to find a black distressed leather maxi 'gale with black ostrich handles this month . pix soon.

you know i must get a camera...a lot of my pix come from quick snaps of the cell phone. this is the classic rick o. moto jacket with the funnel collar that has two snaps for different collar positions. just too hot for proper modeling pix today.hope you are all having a great weekend.

i was happy to find this 2002 classic rick owens motorcycle jacket. i used an entire 1.7 oz jar of leather conditioner on it. it is a dark brown leather with a light tan interior and half knit/half leather classic rick long sleeves. i love mixing old with new, and highs with lows. hope you all are having a fun filled weekend.

salutations. this is a tina chow crystal necklace from the late 80's/ early 90's. i feel so lucky to own a piece of her crystal jewelry. it was originally purchased at maxfields,a very special boutique in LA which has an amazing selection of vintage hermes.... i love having a blog where you can ramble and go "off topic"...goodnight y'all. waaaaaaay past my bedtime.
