ckparis at play avec gucci hysteria and rick owens



i have such childlike energy. i am really happy when i get to play around with messy construction bricks.
especially when i can do so with my new/old chauss closet find, gucci first season python hysteria hobo.
my messy closet is the best place to find forgotten treasures.

i love this rocker chic bag because underneath the black python scales are white scales. as the bag wears in, the two colors smoosh together in various places to a super cool silver.
defintely a great example of an exotic that gets better and better with use.
i am not that pristine perfect kinda chick. give me anything vintage, destroyed, or distressed to play with. i like to use my stuff.

and you all know the chauss theory of expensive goodies:
the cost per wear goes down each time you use something.

invest in high ticket items which are gonna be basic staples in your closet. splurge on stuff you can wear over and over and over.
hey, i can rationalize anything. :)
(thank goodness for f21 t shirts)

see you on the astral plane.

gorgeous bag. totally agree with the cost-per-wear thing. wear a 2000 pound thing 2000 times and it basically cost 1 pound! (a day..).

love your blog, love the energy you have. can we swap links? you're going on my blogroll nonetheless xoxo

'mix high ticket items w/lower ticket items.' that is your trademark. great advice. whenever i'm shopping or getting dressed, i will always think of you.

Great bag. I totally agree with investing in items you'll use all the time. I use my bags and other accessories all the time. I wouldn't spend that money on something like a t-shirt or an outfit I'd only wear once. Love your blog by the way!
