ckparis, rich and skinny jeans and burberry black lizard

hello readers. how was your week? tell me....

if you are having a tough time in this ca-raaaazy universe, hang in there.
you are not alone.
this is a difficult time for many people on different levels.
so, come here to escape for a moment or two and
get lost in the fourth dimension or
just feel the positive energy i infuse into my ckparis blog for you all to absorb.
hey, i am a reiki master and i rarely think inside the box.

do not let others bring you down.
you control your own destiny.
look in the mirror and say out loud, "today is gonna be a great day."
the collective consciousness is a VERY powerful thing.

moi? i have on rich and skinny distressed jeans, helene zubeldia crystal bracelet avec the usual chauss-celets and my burberry prorsum ankle strap black lizard platform sandals cira spring 08.
my closet is such a wonderful place to shop. lol.

see you on the astral plane.

p.s. if you are looking for lucrecia from fashionispoison, go here .

ckparis, louboutin monicas and kieselstein-cord

and how is your week going?

stay away from the mailbox (the bills, stock portfolio nose dives and other crap will still be there tomorrow)

do not watch too much t.v. (doom and gloom, gloom and doom, recession...blahs)
true blood new stuff is NOT on until the summer so you are not missing anything...

buy some gorgeous, glossy march 2009 magazines.

eat chocolate.
drink exotic coffee from far away places.
laugh. alot.

moi? paparazzi shot of me looking in the mirror in my louboutin thigh high monicas, rich and skinny jeans and kieselstein-cord sterling silver 'gator buckle. the distressed smooshy black leather is a first edition thomas wylde ruched bag lined with black and white skulls.

like i say, there are distinct advantages to a disorganized closet...
i am always finding forgotten treasures in mine. :)

look in the mirror, and say out loud: "today is gonna be a GREAT day."
you have the power to make it happen.
and it may take a while, but put it out to the universe and
remember the universe doesn't operate on a 24 hour clock...
so, be patient.

xx chauss

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, theory trousers, tina chow and the third dimension

hey readers. how are you all? tell me...
very third dimension week for me...
i would like to go into more details, but this isn't the time or the place...
ahhhh, the universe will provide.
it is just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
change your attitude maintenant.
hey, you guys know i truly believe in the powers of self talk and positive energy.
and in case of emergency... eat chocolate, and drink tequila...
hell, take the credit cards out of the freezer (i call them "frozen assets")
and do whatever you have to in order to get through the night...

moi? black theory trousers, black satin prada platforms (i gotta post a better shoe pix), dolce and gabbana shades and my magic tina chow crystal on a black suede cord.

make it a FABULOUS weekend. you know i will. :)

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, pasion coffee and hermes

hey you all. how was your weekend?
i went to F21 this past saturday. what a trip. the place was packed and the line for the fitting rooms was half way across the room.
no thanks.
oh yeah, the other set of fitting rooms were closed.
anyway, being the resourceful chauss that i am, and coupled with my scorpio nature, i set up shop to try a few shirts on in front of the nearest mirror i found.
i always admired those chic european women who were able to get out of a wet bathing suit and into an outfit right there in the middle of the beach without missing a beat and without any wardrobe malfunctions.
i did ok.
one adorable woman came up to me with her baby in tow, and said, "i would do the same thing as you, look at that line!"
i did have three woman plant themselves down on a nearby bench to gawk at me in shock and awe.
yeah, i am a true scorpio.
i was able to pick out the right sizes and have some fun doing it.
but i gotta say,
rumi does have a point about shopping on line for F21 stuff...

and now for something completely different: chauss in black.
but a bit of a different look for a different setting then my usual starbucks.
this uber cool coffee place opened in coral gables a couple of weeks ago,
pasion del cielo coffee.
really great coffee and i like the energy.
i was completely delighted when the guy behind the counter asked me what country i wanted my coffee from.
ummmmmmmmmmmm. i had a choice of beans from 8 or 9 countries.
i went for a double espresso from peru with soyfoam for my first time.
next time, i got the same drink with brazilian beans.
i think tomorrow i'll try columbian double espresso with soyfoam...
(h of candid cool, stop by for a cafe and and some conversation when you are down this way.)
you know i am having a challenging week when i am planning my adrenaline fix before i even go to sleep.
yeah. i am an east coast chick who lives on west coast time.

see you on the astral plane.

hello readers. how is your weekend? tell me...

today's post is dedicated to my christian louboutin cactus booties. a couple of pix you may have seen before and the bottom one is new.
and you get to see the million dollar chauss smile.

the bottom pix is a true paparazzi shot taken as i was walking by the two girls on the left. the brunette really loved my booties.
and for those of you who asked for another pix of my vintage chauss closet find, my black crochet sac a dos, here you go.

the red undersoles on my loub cactus booties were the only red i wore for valentine's day yesterday.
perfect understatement.

time to hit the stairs hard.

see you on the astral plane.

i just wanna hang out with the teddy bears on the couch, but the real world beckons.
alrighty then.
major color meditation tonight.
time to balance my chakras.
i really want to teach you all how to do this...
a chauss seminar in the 'nana republic of the southern most portion of the U.S.?

btw, i have on my ysl original black patent tributes, basic black stuff and vintage hat.
the oil painting behind me was custom done for me by Briggs. Briggs had a men's clothing company for a while. i know you can't really see it in this pix. another time.

ckparis, alexander wang and vintage

hey reader. how is your weekend? tell me.

moi? paparazzi shot caught me out on the street in my alexander wang black leather vest, black cashmere arm warmers, american apparel t and the black crochet back pack i found in the depths of my closet the other day.

138 flights today.
motivation: visions of dark chocolate covered raisins...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, shelly litvak, sprouse and visions of coffee grinds

hello readers.
how are you all doing? tell me...

moi? when i saw this pix, taken with my blackberry bold, i had an instant dimension skip...
i saw a gypsy psychic studying the bottom of a coffee cup to see what the remaining coffee grinds meant to the client sitting across from her.
the gyspy even had a wristful of bracelets that made clinking sounds and that could rival my own wrist of chauss-celets.

hey, any excuse to get out of the third dimension today. can you all relate?

back on the third, i have on my rick owens distressed black leather moto jacket, sprouse violet scarf and a shelly litvak vintage turn-of-the-century ivory pendant on her signature black suede cord
avec my dolce and gabbana mirrored aviators.

i think the vintage necklace coupled with the purple (7th chakra higher psychic power) color scheme and rakish angle of the scarf thrown across my shoulder and lack of sufficient zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzs pushed me to a past life flash.
welcome to my world.

see you on the astral plane.

p.s. lots of white light and kisses to lucrecia.
p.p.s. don't ever question if you "fit in", albert, and anyone else who has second guess issues.
if you are where YOU want to be, it's ok.

chauss rule 5(a): nothing is a coincidence. nothing...
got it?
and you can take that with you to...the astral plane. :)

ckparis, balmain booties, rick owens et al.

hey all, how was your weekend?

ok, and to answer a frequently asked question:
stairs. yeah.
real high rise stairs in a real stairwell.
no fancy gym equipment means no cheating.
i like to walk/run a 46 story high rise 3x-5x per session.
this sunday i did 184 flights. woo hoo.
i used to run 5-7 miles at a time (not my thing anymore)
and stairmasters make me feel like a laboratory rat on a wheel.

hence, chauss stairs.
it is really a great way to completely zone out and do some creative thinking
and meditating...
hey guys, it really works for us Type A people.
mind over matter.

you can accomplish whatever you really want to do.
do not let negative energy stop you.
it is just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
so red light, green light...
change your 'tude.

and if today really didn't go well, try again tomorrow.
persistence can actually lead to great things. :)

and wear whatever color makes YOU happy. your aura will manifest this and
positive energy will flow your way.
i kinda always feel good in black.
yeah, most always.

moi today? black vintage fedora, black distressed leather rick owens jacket, black suede balmain booties and note the vintage black crochet back pack on the floor that i found in my closet. (still the best place to shop!)
a major plus to having a disorganized closet. hey, i can rationalize anything. i had some great education...
and i kinda really like the black crochet. i think i am going to stick some vintage rhinestone pins on it.

see you on the astral plane.
