on the astral plane with ckparis and coke light


hey you, it's so easy for me to completely zone out and focus on the object of my immediate obsession. in this pix, shoes. burberry runway black lizard platform sandals to be specific. yeah...

i have done this before with other shoes, bags and magazines. hmmmm, material objects as the focus point of entrance into the altered state of meditation. hmmmm, it does cause an almost immediate sense of euphoria.

ok, i think i am already on the astral plane.

totally off topic, i am craving a coke light. not the diet coke that comes in the metallic cans, but the european version of the drink that comes in glass bottles.

i once sat next to a girl who worked for coca cola european division at the cafe deux magots in the 6th arrondissement. she was very interested to know my opinion of coke light. she explained that the formula was different from that sold in the US in the cans. no question about that. make mine with lime please.

Oh.. I simply adore coca cola... but none of the lights come close to the real stuff for me.. I guess I am a bit of a purist. It's either real cola or nothing. =)

Those are my favorite of all your shoes, bar none! Of course you have great legs and would even look good in crocs (Ha!)! Are you going to fall for the SATC shoe craze and get the gladiators and Manolos? I did and feel so guilty because I feel like a pawn in a grand marketing scheme.

hi search for chic and nk!

ihavedog,thanks. the gucci bag had my python hysteria bag. :) i will take more pix of it soon. it is really great. the SA had run out of medium bags, but i loved playing with the huge one, so it all worked out.
and no, i am not getting any satc shoes. i buy shoes when i have a coup de coeur... and yes, i have my eye on several more, but not from the movie....

Taghrid said...

i loooooooove the shoes!

matt said...

ahh well they do have coke light here in argentina..... i think you're totally right, the diet coke in cans in the US have a slight chemical taste

chauss said...

lena, thank you.

taghrid, thank you.

matt,it is for real. coke light and diet coke are different formulas for the alleged different tastes of the countries where they are sold. and what have you bought in the southern hemisphere where is is cold?

matt said...

my eyes were immediately drawn to your shoes in the photograph, they're hypnotic. your belt buckle also looks intriguing. a reptile? lizard? crocodile?

i'm not much of a soda person. if i must i only drink sprite or 7-up. brown sodas always make me nauseous...

chauss said...

matt, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!!!!

camille, it is sterling silver 'gator. let me see if i can find a better pix for you.
bte, soda is not good for you. i have a fix for being "lit", and its too hot for starbucks. iced coffee just gives me headaches...do coke light with lime is a good "fix". i have such the addict personality, thankfully, my meditation and actions for the higher good keep me in check.

I can totally relate on the almost instant euphoria when focusing on shoes or bags....I finally got time to take pictures of my burberrys. I have not worn them out yet, they are only worn in safe environments like the apartment. Do you find the soles slippery on carpets?

chauss said...

vogued, carpet is a cake walk, get those out on hard surfaces and paractice. practice makes perfect.
