these are pix of my french victorian very distressed bag i got from aden at gavilane in the marais in paris.

the distressed leather body and frame of the bag are original and from
around the turn of the century.
gotta love paris and
wondering who used this bag in the past.

ckparis Q and A with dale jefferies

you all know i believe nothing is a coincidence, nothing.
and when the student is ready, the teacher appears.
and teachers can come in all shapes, sizes and ages.
(so can students.)
i met dale jefferies thru the internet fashion channels of blogging and tweeting.
check out dale's blog générique de mode here .
i realized early on that this guy was truly an old soul and
has a gifted eye for talent in the fashion world.
so, without further adieu,
get to know dale jefferies thru my Q and A interview:

CKParis: when did you first realize you had an interest in fashion?
DJ: When I was seven or eight years old I collected bridal magazines obsessively. I made scrapbooks out of pictures of my favorite dresses and bouquets. I'm not sure what I loved so much about wedding gowns and table arrangements as an eight-year-old, but I was dead serious about it.

CKParis: you know i have always thought of you as an "old soul",
is there any period of time that you are particularly obsessed ?
DJ: When I was a little older I loved hippies, The Beatles, and the 1960s. I mean, this spanned over at least four years... I had a Pink Floyd poster, books about Lennon and the Maharishi and dropping acid, incense and vinyl records... My aunt gave me The White Album on vinyl and I played it in my room all the time. I think I was a little crazy, it sounds embarrassing to say now! I was so infatuated with it though. So much happened to America during those ten years; it must have been a fascinating time to live in.

CKParis: what person who lived in the past would you have liked to have had dinner?
DJ: Yves Saint-Laurent. Hearing him speak about fashion would be life-changing, I am sure, as he almost singlehandedly invented designer ready-to-wear and modern fashion as we know it. I can't imagine what it would be like to even meet him, or chat with him. Dinner with Monsieur Saint-Laurent would be so amazing!

CKParis: what person who lives today would you like to have a coffee ?
DJ: Hmm, this is such a tough one ... It's hard to choose between Hedi Slimane and Kanye West. I don't necessarily love everything he has done, but I admire his bravery and outrageous sense of style. I do necessarily love everything Hedi has done, however, and he comes to mind first so I'll pick him.

CKParis: i am all for the peter pan syndrome, but what do you want to be
when you grow up?
DJ: You know, it's interesting you should ask what I want to be when I grow up because I'm not sure myself! Right now, I am studying graphic design at Robert Morris University in Chicago and a community college in Scottsdale, but I am thinking of changing my major to art history.
When I was fifteen I studied abroad in Japan and fell in love with it, so I have given a lot of thought to teaching English over there. My dream job is to work within the Vogue family, Vogue Hommes Japan, V.H.International, or Nippon Vogue would be just beyond my wildest fantasies. I admire them all so much. Whatever I end up doing, I want to be with talented people who care about fashion and making it relevant.

CKParis: favorite color?
DJ: In design and art I love deep, dark blues. But my favorite color to wear is "dust," it's that beautiful dingy-looking gray color Rick Owens does.
CKParis: yes, dna dust. a rick owens classic color.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, celine sunglasses spring 2011 and thomas wylde first season

salutations all.
happy new year.
i am not gonna talk about resolutions for the new year on this blog.
by the time i finish writing them,
i will have lost interest or broken them.
2010 was a tough year.

i wish you all love, health and prosperity for 2011.
take one day at a time,
take one hour at a time if you need to that.
when you get up in the am,
look in the mirror and say out loud,
"today is gonna be a GREAT day."
put it out to the universe.
it's just as easy to be happy as is is to be miserable.

moi? thomas wylde first season black leather jacket lined with paula's skull print,
celine blue sunglasses spring 2011,
