ckparis, balmain booties, rick owens et al.



hey all, how was your weekend?

ok, and to answer a frequently asked question:
stairs. yeah.
real high rise stairs in a real stairwell.
no fancy gym equipment means no cheating.
i like to walk/run a 46 story high rise 3x-5x per session.
this sunday i did 184 flights. woo hoo.
i used to run 5-7 miles at a time (not my thing anymore)
and stairmasters make me feel like a laboratory rat on a wheel.

hence, chauss stairs.
it is really a great way to completely zone out and do some creative thinking
and meditating...
hey guys, it really works for us Type A people.
mind over matter.

you can accomplish whatever you really want to do.
do not let negative energy stop you.
it is just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
so red light, green light...
change your 'tude.

and if today really didn't go well, try again tomorrow.
persistence can actually lead to great things. :)

and wear whatever color makes YOU happy. your aura will manifest this and
positive energy will flow your way.
me?
i kinda always feel good in black.
yeah, most always.

moi today? black vintage fedora, black distressed leather rick owens jacket, black suede balmain booties and note the vintage black crochet back pack on the floor that i found in my closet. (still the best place to shop!)
a major plus to having a disorganized closet. hey, i can rationalize anything. i had some great education...
and i kinda really like the black crochet. i think i am going to stick some vintage rhinestone pins on it.

see you on the astral plane.

I am frankly mesmerized by the way your "total Black style" sublimates the sensuality of your sculptural bare arms, as a "Chauss-issime" carnal unveiling !!!

à Bientôt, Antoine

I don't live in Miami full time. I'm with my Grandmother a lot. So, that's why I'm busy. As for work. I just need some $$ to pay bills. The economy is crap right now. =[
