ckparis in the shadows with american apparel and krelwear


hey all, how is your weekend going? tell me..

i wanted to post my interview with krelwear today, but the computer i am working on is having issues...
and the camera i sometimes use is...history.
does anyone know a relatively inexpensive small camera i can get?

moi? hanging out in a krelwear custom couture black knit mini skirt.
better pix coming... if i can can download them off the camera which has gone on to the 5th dimension.
i get a sad beeping sound when i try to turn it on...
yeah, it was dropped.

i am off to run/walk 138 flights of high rise stairs.
meditation and exercise together, the best combination.

have a FABULOUS sunday and krelwear interview up next....

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and vintage chanel



hey all, what are you doing?

moi? as promised, my new vintage black leather chanel back pack from the rocking
1980's.
oooh-la-la.

i am not usually a logo-in-your-face sort of chick, but something about the lure of the iconic large gold CCs (and only one set of them) caught my eye.

they don't make chanel bags like they used to...
ahhhh, the beauty of discovering a vintage bag that has already been around for about 20 years and making it yours.

i coordinated my sac a dos with wolford, a bf white shirt and ysl black patent tributes.

and krelwear interview with karelle levy coming up soon! stay tuned...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, black catsuit, 'gator belt and marc jacob booties




hey all. how are you? how is your week going?

moi? hanging out in a black cat suit avec my favorite marc jacob booties, 'gator belt, and my marc jacobs panama hat.
note: i made my cat suit into capri length by rolling the bottoms. i kinda like how it went with the booties.

marc jacobs,
i would love another pair of these booties. i have them in black leather and bronze leather. would you consider doing another pair next season? i would love them in silver . they are my favorite booties.
(sssshhh don't tell my rick owen shark fins or christian louboutin cactus booties...)
xxoo, chauss

next up, pix of my vintage ( from the 1980s!) black leather chanel sac a dos. :)

ckparis, dogma and vintage diesel



hey all, how is your weekend going? tell me...

moi? back at the scene of my favorite hot dot stand on the boulevard...
i ordered my turkey hot dog (really) and the girl behind the counter excitedly uttered, "you're the girl with the boots with the red soles!!!"
hmmmm. she's right. i wore my louboutin cactus booties when i went to dogma last week.
(see picture in thread below)
and paparazzi shot of me chowing on my hot dog above....

and if you need to do it with tequila and/or dark chocolate, go for it.

ckparis, krelwear and raquel allegra in the breeze

moi? here i am hanging out on the balcony overlooking the bay and it is breezy.

i have on my grey raquel allegra t shirt and my custom made by krelwear black lurex skirt avec a krel headband custom tied by chauss.

i thought d. was just taking still photo shots but i didn't hear the camera clicking... he told me he put it on mute.

anyway, totally uncut chauss video for your viewing pleasure...
i kinda like the birds chirping. it takes me right to the fourth.

ckparis, raquel allegra and krelwear


hello all. how was your weekend? tell me...

my SA extrordinaire, mariam, at oxygene told me to make sure i stopped by for the krelwear custom made knits-on-the-spot event that oxygene was hosting.
i wanted to show mariam my raquel allegra shredded shirt that she helped me decide on getting in grey as a first piece. mariam totally gets it. i gotta warn you, these t shirts are addicting...

anyway, i met karelle, the creative designer of krelwear and daria from nyc of krelwear who explained the concept and gave me several pieces to try on for ideas.
expect an interview with karelle of krelwear at my blog in the not too distant future. :)

i picked out a tube piece of black lurex knit material to be as the body of a skirt and karelle added a black cotton band to the top of the skirt. the black tube piece i picked had deep blue seams and we decided to let a few pieces remain of the blue seams remain visible along with several runs in the black lurex material.

one hour later, instant adorable krelwear black knit skirt customed designed by karelle for ckparis.

i wrapped a piece of krelwear black lurex fabric around my hair and coupled with my grey shredded raquel allegra t shirt, voila, instant outfit.
oh yeah, i do have on my louboutin cactus booties to complete the look.

d. took a secret little video when i was out on the balcony which shows the pieces in their natural element. it was quite breezy up on the 37th floor balcony today so the raquel allegra t shirt and krelwear knit skirt sorta come to life.
as soon as i figure out how to down load it to blogger, i will post it.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, givenchy nightingale, and american apparel


hey all, how is your week going?
mine? verrry third dimension...
yeah.
hmmmm.

anyway, i gotta tell you i am loving the new aa dolman rayon t shirt in the pix. it is the same material as the the aa oversized rayon t shirt we all got in multiple colors last year. i just bought the black one too.

ckparis, rick owens shark fins and cadillac fins




ok guys, my rick owens snakeskin shark fin booties are verrrry interesting.
it is really the first pair of shoes/booties i have ever worn where guys consistently notice them before women.
i have seen 3 different guys point out my booties to the women they are with.
just an interesting observation....

hmmmm.
which leads to the next question....
rick owens shark fin booties inspiration?
1950's cadillac fins?
is that why guys are mesmerized by the booties first?

my day is gonna be waaaay third.
yeah.
just nice to take a minute on the fourth. :)

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis at play avec gucci hysteria and rick owens



i have such childlike energy. i am really happy when i get to play around with messy construction bricks.
especially when i can do so with my new/old chauss closet find, gucci first season python hysteria hobo.
my messy closet is the best place to find forgotten treasures.

i love this rocker chic bag because underneath the black python scales are white scales. as the bag wears in, the two colors smoosh together in various places to a super cool silver.
defintely a great example of an exotic that gets better and better with use.
i am not that pristine perfect kinda chick. give me anything vintage, destroyed, or distressed to play with. i like to use my stuff.

and you all know the chauss theory of expensive goodies:
the cost per wear goes down each time you use something.

invest in high ticket items which are gonna be basic staples in your closet. splurge on stuff you can wear over and over and over.
hey, i can rationalize anything. :)
(thank goodness for f21 t shirts)

see you on the astral plane.
