ckparis and the rabbit hole

hey all, what are you doing? tell me...

well, i discovered a fun, new vintage shop in the 'nana called the rabbit hole.
can you believe it?

i was perusing the shelves and stumbled upon a black lace meshy item labeled
"mysterious vintage item" $3.00.
complete with a small clear plastic ring device.
right out of alice and wonderland...

i asked tya, the store owner, what it was. she kinda shook her head.
immediate purchase.
with a label like that, it was a fourth dimension play item.
ok, any ideas what the mysterious vintage item was used for?

i tried it on as a tube top layering piece and as a skirt layering piece.
a black lace ruffle peaking out for here or there?
works as a circular scarf or a cute belt.

somewhere in the depths of my mind i recalled something...
once upon a time in a not too distant time was a place called miami beach n/k/a SOBE.
a place where little old ladies congregated on porches wearing ...
curler covers!!!
yup, the mystery is solved, tya.
can't wait to come play dress up in your store soon.
the rabbit hole is filled with fun energy that can take you straight to the fourth.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and those bcbg mendel booties again

salutations. what does one wear when one is craving winter and the temperatures seem to hover at 85 degrees every day?
hmmmm, that would be faux ice skates and a furry polar bear-esque vest.
d. actually asked me if i was auditioning for a coca cola commerical.
you all know which ones...

anyway, i have on my oh-so-comfortable and oh-so-cult bcbg mendel pony hair booties.
i added a forever 21 faux fur polar bear vest coupled with a basic white t shirt and black mini skirt.
i am ready for my fourth dimension ice rink.

btw, this was taken in the enea tropical rainforest garden in the miami design district. the 'nana can suprise you some of the time...

see you on the astral plane.

down in the'nana, it was art basel weekend.
i discovered another fabulous place in the miami design district, the enea rainforest garden.

the garden is a truly beautiful place.
more pix coming soon...

today's pix are of me in front of the enea rainforest garden during a particularly windy moment.
i have on my balenciaga astro girl boots, tina chow crystal necklace on a black suede cord with tina's name etched on the crystal, and alexander wang coco bag.

ckparis at the F factory

hey all, what are you doing?

moi? hanging at in the gorgeous Moore building down in the miami design district during art basel.
F factory is the multi brand pop up shop which contains margiela, fendi, christopher ross, stubbs & wootton, touche muah, and katherine fleming to name a few...
like a kid in a candy store. :)
did i mention christian louboutin is a few steps down the block?

i have on my balenciaga astro girl boots, alexander wang coco bag and basic wolford.
now, if we could just get some cold weather...

have a FABULOUS weekend.

ckparis and mendel pony hair booties

hey all, how is your week going?

moi? well, yeah, wearing another pair of black ankle booties.
these are the ubiquitous blogger booties of the moment.
bcbg mendel black pony hair 6 inch wedges.

totally weird and wonderful and comfortable for those who wear skyscraper shoes on a regular basis.

definitely 8 hour shoes,
not the 2 hour and 3 advil "dinner" shoes or the
4 hour and 4 advil "suffer for beauty" stilettos.

and something about the blade on the back end of these boots makes me giddy like a kid on ice skates.
i feel like i am secretly gliding around a frozen ice rink somewhere
above the mason-dixon line where the temperature actually goes below 80 degrees, way below 80 degrees...
a girl can dream.
ahhhh, just another day in paradise.

did i mention i have another pair of louboutin black bondage booties on the way ?
i hope they fit.

see you on the astral plane.
