On the Road Again...


...Like a band of gypsies we go down the highway...Sing it Willie!!!

WHOO HOO!!!....Tomorrow we hit the road to Roundtop, Texas for world famous Antique Week!

Should be quite the sight with me and Mama Love pulling the shined up Blacktop Boudoir, Vintage Bliss Tricia towing the Bliss Lounge and Rust and Roses, Sirens and Saints Shelly coming up the road a couple days later with her mini manse on wheels!

If this doesn't capture Tricia's "Pursuit of Pretty" perfectly!?!?!

And THIS is the inside of Shelly's mini manse!

Oh! The Places You'll Go!

I have been a follower of the Junk Gypsies of Texas for many years. They represent a kind of simplicity and soul food that draws me back to places like Roundtop, Texas and Livingston, Montana, year after year in the Blacktop Boudoir to set up in a field of wildflowers windblown and sun kissed and happy as a pig in dirt.

But just when I'm ready to pack up my favorite vintage boots and head down some dusty road pulling the Blacktop Boudoir and never turn back...something glittery catches my eye from the Chanel Paris Runway show or Mama Love mails me WWD with Donna Karan's new metallic tattered silk line and I die a thousand deaths. Or I catch up on the latest fabulous Frenchiness of Claudia and her Paris Apartment adventures.

This kind of duplicity will make a girl crazy... or set you free...if you are willing to stop looking outside yourself for that "right answer" or jonesing for something that's not really fully you and let yourself be the Renaissance Woman that you REALLY are; a woman with many layers and loves and, most important, a LUST for YOUR life!
Even if it's not neat and tidy. Even if it means that part of the year you are On the Road in an Airstream Trailer in your vintage chaps and the rest of time you are In the City in Scottsdale, AZ working on Indie pieces that are Runway daring and wearable chic.

As coaching guru Thomas Leonard said "Create and Environment and Let It Evolve You." Or, more simply, say "YES" to those things that delight and inspire and, as the incomparable Dr. Seuss said, "Oh The Places You'll GO!"

See you Down the Road and In the City!

Hangin' from the Rafters!

We're hangin' from the rafters! Chandeliers, that is.....
Stay tuned for more Paris Montana Studio & Boutique sneak peeks
See ya down the road and in the city!

Paris Montana In the City

After two years of gallivanting Down the Road in the Blacktop Boudoir, we have decided to settle down....NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Actually, we have decided to live the Paris Montana Dream full out, which is equal parts City Chic and Gypsy Glam.

While we will never lose our wanderlust (click on the Blacktop Boudoir for our On the Road Schedule), as Virginia Woolf said, "Every woman needs a room of her own." Or in our case a Design Studio and Boutique, where we can create fabulous baubles and design statement wardrobe pieces that are runway daring and wearable chic.

Check out this fabulous, (and affordable @ $89) custom crushed velvet corset I am wearing. These stretchy numbers comfortably fit women size 4-14 and look adorable over a tank or tee and your favorite jeans or a ruched skirt. Wait until you see the Buckskin Corsets we have designed....

Paris Montana Design Studio & Boutique will open early April off 5th Ave on Marshall Way in the heart of Scottsdale's arts and emerging Indie Fashion District.

Check back for times, dates and details.

See you down the road...and In the City!

Paris Montana Under Construction

As you can tell from the look of our blog, Paris Montana is under construction. Check back for our new look and our BIG ANNOUNCEMENT!

Street Faire and Roadkill Couture

This is why I love the annual M7 Street Faire held Saturday in Phoenix!

Here is a pic of me and the mystery Retro Ranch guy...Doesn't he look FAB in Roundkill Couture ? He actually bought a ring for his girl, but was undaunted when I asked him to model this cuff.

Tricia the Vintage Bliss Vixen, http://www.vintagebliss.typepad.com/, captured the moment, of course. Love the Retro Funky Vintage Vibe on 7th Ave in Phoenix.

See you down the Road!
