Goodsh*t: Can't Speak French

But I can read it (menus), I can drink it (vineyards) AND I can wear it (Bonbons, Cacharel, Manoush...). My girl Bonbon Oiseau is back in Paris at Le Showroom accessories tradeshow pimpin' her trade. I so so wish I was there with her! (hmmm, I seem to remember a little invite to come and join the fun for her next show in October! BB, honey, I might just have to take you up on that although it could conflict with my new plans of Berlin-to-South Africa-to-Berlin!).

I featured one of my most favorite pieces she did for me for a photoshoot I was "art directing" back in my lingerie designing days. I love it, it's Madame Pompadour meets punk rock 1950's housewife! I think it's crinolines need a little fluffing! Being all Parisian-nostalgic today that reminds of another piece she designed for my 27th birthday lovingly titled "A Bitch with a Nice Pair". It has a nice big bronze poodle and a pear, hahaha! It's also the inspiration for my next set of paintings, I am embracing my girliness, people, WATCH OUT!

She was also asked to design the carrier bags for the show, I love the design and I am sure this will be seen all over the streets of Paris in the coming days! Keep tabs on her travels, beautiful photos of my beloved Paris! Bonne Bonbon de Chance!

PS Eiffel tower photo from my travels right out of college! Old school! Oh yea and people, 2008 is all about travel: check your passport, does it need renewing? Do you just need to GET a passport?! DO. IT!

PSS BB, we just got an A.P.C. in the hood. I had better pack my bags, my rent gonna get raised!
