hey all, how are you?
these pix are of the vintage 1920's art deco french purse i got in gavilane paris

ckparis and interview with aden of gavilane paris

i went to visit Gavilane in the marais last month in paris.
Gavilane is a wickedly wonderful place to check out on your next sojourn to paris.
the proprietor, aden, was in the shop and helped me pick out a fabulous
tete de mort necklace/belt/whatever from his recent collection.
if you are fascinated by the gothic, mysterious, dark,
this is the place to shop.
the music playing in Gavilane went perfectly with the jewelry, designs and clothing.
d. noticed a CD cover with a guy that looked like a dead ringer for the guy in the store who was helping me.
aden confirmed that it was his pix on the CD cover and he was the one singing.

the following is my Q & A interview with aden.

Q: bon jour aden, how long has gavilane been in the marais?
A: 12 years

Q: what was your inspiration for creating Gavilane?
A: We love creation, and we have been making custom jewellery for 22 years.

Q: what is your favorite medium to work with?
A: we don't follow trends and we keep classic inspiration through vanity and
decadent accessories.

Q: when is your studio CD coming out?
A: i hope in febuary, we will mention on and aden .

Q: what is your most cherished possession?
A: my cherished possession is to possess nothing.

Q: what is your favorite color?
A: black

Q: when is your birthday?
A: december 7
Q: i think you can pass for a scorpio imo.

Q: tell me something most people do not know about you:
A: you know, I spend my time to work since a very long time
and actually I dream music, sometime I believe cause all my life
is writing and I live in my world (monde) dans l'inconscience.
the only difference is today I know I can die and my personal life is more
and more complicated.
I hope to have enough time.

Q: i understand living dans l'inconscience. i spend a lot of time on the
astral plane, the fourth dimension.
does that make sense to you?
A: inconscience: to be strong and for protection of life
avec l'inconsciene on avance sans se poser de questions.

Q: d'accord. c'est tout...

ckparis in balenciaga leather jacket and the rue st honore chocolate waterfall store

hey kids,
this is the most unedited childlike side of my personality.
zillion dollar chauss smile.

note: you need to be on a pc or apple to watch the vlog.
it won't play on cell phones and if you know what i need to do to fix that, please let me know.
all vlogs were taken with an iphone 4 and uploaded thru photobucket to blogspot.

this mini vlog was taken the first night i arrived in paris in front of my favorite choclate store window to gaze at in a mesmerized state.

you can see my literally jumping up and down bc:
1. i was in paris again finally!!!
2. it was about 30 degrees and i am a chick from constant nonstop tropical balmy weather
3. i am standing in front of freakin' chocolate waterfall, and this is the real deal
on the third dimension, no astral plane needed here
4. did i say, i am in paris!!!

p.s. i am so mesmerized by this window that i actually stared into it once long enough to see the chocolate store's owner descend down the staircase in her nightgown and robe to grab a piece of chocolate and scurry back upstairs.
true story.

how many people stare into a chocolate store window on the rue st honore when it is closed at 10:00 pm?

which is meant to be seen.

the VPL bra in the pix has a a beige band, black cups finished with silver gray
mesh and cognac brown straps with silver slides.

salutations. how's your week going?

moi? hanging out in a f-21 smooshy madonna t shirt avec alexander wang black velvet back pack with black chiffon ties and those boots.
i adore the black velvet and black chiffon materials used for this back pack.
perfect blend of goth, biker chic and debutante school girl.

ckparis, urchin scorpio and ann turk vintage

hey all, how is the weekend going?
this is non sequitor post.

moi? caught like a deer in the headlights on the floor.
i have a mac lipstick in my hand, givenchy black distressed 'gale,
ralph lauren hat, smooshy random gray shirt
and assorted chauss-elets.

can you tell i have scorpio eyes?
you can usually pick out scorpios bc no matter what the eye color, the eyes will usually have a hypnotic, intense trait that is instantly recognizable.

vintage ann turk black 'gator bag was located in my disorganized closet. judy has another vintage ann turk bag featured on her blog at atlantis home.
i have another one in cognac leather with silver turtles
climbing up the shoulder straps which is
still lost in the abyss of my closet...

ckparis and zana bayne three strap belt

hey all, what's going on?
tell me...

moi? hanging out in basics avec the three strap belt by
zana bayne. i had seen pix of her amazing belts being used as on the waist.
i thought zana's three strap would look good on the hips with low rise jeans and/or skirts too.
after consulation with zana, we figured out her three strap belt would fit in my belt loops and that i could wear some straps in the loops and some out of the loops.

being a lazy sunday, i paired zana's three strap with a distressed denim mini, smooshy oversized t shirt, black cap, gianni barbato distressed brown leather cowboy boots and vintage diesel denim back pack.
unexpectedly, the three strap belt became a fringe that hung below the skirt in a way that actually worked.
(someone asked me if i was a fashion designer that day bc they thought i always had great stuff on whenever they saw me. must have been zana bayne's belt.)
check out her blog and etsy shop for other creative leather pieces.
tell her ckparis sent you over for a look-see.

can't wait to order my next piece.
thanks, zana.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and burberry prorsum aviator shearling booties

hey all. how are you?

i got my burberry prorsum shearling stiletto booties.
more pix soon.

this is a quick pix because it's time for running/walking 184 stories
of high rise stairs.
i know, alien behavior, but cheaper than going to a shrink.
it is amazing what the mind can work out while doing stairs.
not for the faint of heart.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, million dollar smile and ralph lauren hat

hey all, what's going on?
paris on the mind...

if you can capture me with a real smile, it's usually worth posting.
i was having so much fun playing with this ralph lauren hat, that it was easy.
sometimes a smile can be your best accessory, n'est pas?
this hat can be worn with the brim in front or in back.
when i flip it around, it looks like a french beret.
(can you tell i am a scorpio?)

make time to laugh every day.
it's a great way to momentarily raise your resonance and escape the crappy stuff on the third.

see you on the astral plane.
