ckparis, balmain, and bliss lau et al.

hey readers. wht's going on?
moi? ahhhhhhhhhhh, just another day in paradise. i discovered lots of fraud activity on my credit card account.
and no, card has never beeen out of my possession, and yes, i still have it.
moral: read your credit card statements, and read them on line before you get a monthly statement.
now, the fun part is remembering all my automatic fees to change...
it's late here. so, another scarlet o'hara epiphany for me...
(i did shut the card down.)

never a dull moment in the 'nana republic. and i can even tell you how they did it...(credit card company isn't really interested. true. unbelievable, but true.)
the victim ALWAYS knows...
if you really ask yourself, and listen to the depths of your soul, you will get the answer.
sometimes being so spiritually evolved leaves the rest of the third dimension
saying, "huh?"

welcome to my world...
basic black avec balmain black suede booties, bliss lau ornament body chain and usual chauss-celets.

see you on the astral plane.
bring credit cards. maintenant s'il vous plait.

hello readers. what's going on? did you all get good stuff from santa? tell me...
i am such the lounge lizard today.
thoughts of doing stairs... so far, just thoughts... i think i will be like scarlet o'hara today... :)

i saw Twighlight. not even close to True Blood calibre.
and does anyone else think that edward cullen looks like chuck bass?
(watch Gossip Girl instead)
edward pix is from twighlightmovie website.
chuck bass pix is from gossip girl website.
enough said on that subject. is it summer yet?

ckparis, scorpio eyes and paige premium

hey readers, how are you all?

my last post was about rich and skinny jeans.
pix today are of me in paige premium skyline drive jeans.
i love a true skinny jean which shows your curves.
i also have on my dior black leather moto boots, kieselstein-cord 'gator belt with basic black t shirt.

the scorpio eyes pix (intense or what?) was taken at my favorite french restaurant this side of the pond after a couple of "french cures".
for my new readers, the french cure is a glass of champagne.
last year, i went to the restaurant in a blue mood, and bruno gave me the french cure.
and ever since then, bruno or christian brings me a french cure the minute i arrive at the restaurant. talk about fabulous service and food.
today was traditional moules et frites, french cures and tarte de tatin.

i hope santa brings you everything you want this year.
post a comment here about your goodies. tell me...

holiday times can be challenging, depressing and stressful for some people.
for those regular readers, lurkers and cyber friends of mine who are having a tough time, take a deep breath, outline yourself with white light and just be for a minute.
just be.
and dream.
and eat chocolate.
the collective consciousness is a powerful thing.

white light and gold light, xx chauss

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and rich and skinny jeans

hello readers. how are you? happy holiday greetings to all.

moi? paprazzi shot caught me trying on rich and skinny boyfriend jeans. i wasn't really thrilled with the hyped current and elliot ones or any of the other new boyfriend jeans on the market. i love my vintage 50l levis, all distressed and smooshy.

i do like rich and skinny jeans, so i figured i would try on their boyfriend jean version.

have a FABULOUS day tomorrow. do something unexpected for someone else.
you might just like it...
and trust in the universe.
just remember, the universe does not operate on a 24/7 time clock.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, smart car and balenciaga turq '05 WE

hello readers. what's going on?
hope you all have a FABULOUS weekend.
and if you're in a crappy frame of mind, change it right now!
chauss-ism rule number 5: it is just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
red light, green light, 1,2,3...ahhhh, instant 'tude adjustment.

moi? sometimes i have so much fun playing in my own closet...
balenciaga turquoise '05 WE. check it out.
they don't make bal moto bags like they used to...
bal was bought by gucci group et al and they changed factories...
and they changed leathers....'nuf said.

i also have on my la perla black python platforms.

ckparis, balenciaga and black lace

good evening readers. how is your week going? tell me.

first order of business, a huge thank you to my friend and fellow blogger,
lucrecia of fashion is poison.
lucrecia sent me an adorable pair of black lace gloves. see pix. she also sent me a super cool guerlain mascara and a ca-raazy huge black ring.

moi? some pix of me taken with a low pixel cell phone playing with my new black lace gloves and
paparazzi shot of chauss in action on cell phone. can you feel the scorpio 'tude?
i was actually having an intense conversation with a banker who didn't want to cash a check i wrote for someone. apparently, my signature was different than that on the signature card...
yeah, we scorpios are constantly evolving...thus, signature changes...among other things...

paparazzi shot includes chauss avec the required starbucks red cup, balenciaga vert d'eau WE and a shelley litvak vintage ivory piece on a black suede cord.

change keeps you vibrant.
embrace change when given the opportunity to do so if it you will take to higher places.
always strive to raise your resonance.
oh, and do something out of your personal comfort zone tomorrow.
you may just like it...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and balenciaga vert d'eau WE

hello readers. how are you?

moi? some quickie pix of me avec my balenciaga vert d'eau WE from '06.
lots of 'tude today. monday...
dior moto boots and the usual standard issue noir skirt and t shirt.
black works perfectly for me.
i prefer to let my accessories add a pop of color...every now and then.

zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz out time.
sweet dreams.

see you on the astral plane maintenant. :)

ckparis, balmain, black lace et al.

hello readers. how is your weekend going?

i had a great phone shopping experience with scoop nyc. jennifer from the scoop nyc soho store was friendly and very helpful. if you are in nyc and visit scoop, ask for jennifer. tell her ckparis sent you. now, i hope i like what i ordered....

moi? balmian black suede booties avec black lace.

and alicia, white light is universal energy which is protective in nature. it is very powerful and a great tool to use in any situation in which you feel uncomfortable, scared, anxious or depressed...or just when you want to protect yourself. you can use it any where and any place.

start by drawing an outline of white light around the person or area you want to protect. you can fill up the space with white light too.
i was invited to participate in cleaning the energy in an
esoteric bookstore and we vacuumed the entire store with white light.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, ysl tributes and white t

hello readers. how are you all doing?
i gotta say, it's tough out there! i went to a restaurant in the gables with a nyc vibe which has fantastic chopped salads. but man, where did the staff come from?
the negativity started with the hostess without-the-mostest and the negative vibe was coming from all the other employees.
isn't a restaurant part of the hospitality industry? lol
the energy was so low that i had to put a white light outline around the table before the food came. really.
anyway, don't buy into that crap.
no matter now much negativity someone is spinning, don't buy into it.
you have free will.
do NOT give your power to someone else.
raise your resonance.

the above scenario was difficult even for me. however, the white light exercise works.
try it.

moi? hanging out in my ysl black patent leather tributes avec a white t.
shoes are such a 'tude aduster... :)

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis blogs in louboutin black suede boots

hey readers, how are you? tell me...

moi? thought i would share a pix of me in my typical blogging element. really.
i am a bed blogger. what can be better than getting all comfy on a cushy bed when you blog?

anyway, just a quick hello to say make it a GREAT day.
i've been walking around with a huge marni midnight blue leather balloon bag. it's kinda fun. pix soon.

raise your resonance.
eat chocolate (the number one chauss cure for most day to day crappy stuff)
and smile today.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and l'agence dress

hey readers. how are you all doing?
moi? dress by l'agence and boots by balmain.
'tude by chauss.

did you ever wake up after a full night's sleep and feel utterly exhausted?
too much travel. tell your guides, you need a good night's sleep and don't want to play.

ckparis and balenciaga astrogirl boots

hey you all. how is your weekend going?

moi? quick paparazzi shot of chauss in my natural element. i think this was taken in the parking lot of one of the many starbucks i frequent.
i am such the adrenaline junky...espresso, double shot, topped with soy foam, and if i am feeling the need for speed, a piece of dark chocolate too.
add balenciaga astrogirl boots and i am ready to fly.

have an AMAAAAZING weekend. any plans?
do NOT allow any negative person to bring you down.
raise your resonance. when your energy vibrates at a higher level, you won't be bothered by the crappy stuff at lower levels.
surround yourself with an outline of white light if you are feeling anxious.

ok guys, i need to do stairs...lots of stairs.
more later.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and DIY necklace and robert palmer

hello dear readers. how was your day? tell me. i wanna know...
mine was...challenging...ah, chauss, always the optimist...
i can rant and rave here because this is MY blog, but, hey, it is just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
and karma has a nasty way of doing justice sometimes...
anyway,...enough cryptic crap, and thank you to fashionispoison and ihaveadog for your advice and friendship.

moi? in a chauss DIY necklace! i was late this morning(what else is new for a chick who lives on the east coast and operates on west coast hours)
and couldn't find my baccarat crystal butterfly necklace, and i needed some sparkle so... i grabbed this pink rhinestone heart charm, strung it on a piece of satin ribbon and voila!
good to go coupled with a black splendid henley and a pair of diors.

try making a chauss DIY necklace with any charm and any piece of ribbon or cord and tell me how it goes.
did i do ok camille ?

robert palmer was an AMAAAAAAAAAAZING artist. we will always remember you and your music. and check out the outfits.
i want one of those body con dresses maintenant s'il vous plait.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, daftbird and nick cave

hello readers. do you love me? do you love me?
like i love you...

the first time i went to the rodolphe menudier shoe store in paris, shayda, the very hip store manager turned me on to nick cave.
play and watch nick cave's "do you love me" here or below
so you all can read my blog and listen to nick cave at the same time. :)

i was having True Blood withdrawal symptoms in a bad way tonight. after watching True Blood reruns on HBO, my thoughts turned to nick cave. i think his music is the perfect antidote.
let me know what you think...

oh, and if any of my paris readers knows shayda at the rodolphe menudier store, please give her a kiss from CK and tell her about my blog. (shayda knows me as the girl who named the-come-fuck-me shoe which rodolphe now includes a version of with each new season.)
since the euro went threw the roof against the dollar, i haven't been to paris recently... :(

moi, i have on a daftbird smooshy soft t shirt avec dolce and gabbana shades.

astral plane maintenant!

(sorry guys, my comments section on this post has gone AWOL!? ahhh, the ways of the universe...)

ckparis and american apparel in the 'vator

hello readers, hope you all had a fun filled weekend.
this time of year can be festive, but not for everyone...
step out of your personal comfort zone and do something for someone else. it doesn't have to be major. just connect with a stranger, if only for a moment...
hold the door, say hello to that elderly person and ask them how their day is going...
and if you are stuck on the drive thru coffee line at starbucks, buy coffee for the person behind you...

moi? in the elevator in white american apparel t shirt with dior cannage black sunglasses.
it is so easy for me to zone out to the next dimension.
try it.

make it a FANTASTIC day (even if that means indulging in that extra shot of espresso with soy foam or chocolate.)
oh, gotta share my chauss starbucks drink-of-the-week with you all:
basic double espresso shots avec soy foam, (and NO sugar or fake sugar crap) BUT
have your barista add starbucks chocolate shavings to the top.
yummy adrenaline rush...

and i still have this thing for dark chocolate pretzels... a great motivator for my weekend 276 flights of stairs.(46 story building X 6.)
astrogirl dimentia adrenaline rush...
right, matt?( give me liberty with the terminology for feeling high please.)

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and balmain booties

hey all. how are you doing?
this post is gonna be a bit mushy, so be advised in advance...

just wanted to shout out to all my cyber friends who read my blog regularly. your friendship is really special to me.
some of you i have only met thru the comments here, others thru personal emails and PMs, others i have gotten to know on the phone and i have actually met a couple of you in person.
to those who have confided in me, thank you for your trust and friendship. you know who you are...
scorpios tend to be very clandestine so if you don't know a lot about me, the more you hang out, the more you will discover..

i love that this place is interactive and i want you all to feel comfortable to leave comments now and then. i love getting to know all of you. i hope i can meet some more of you in person in the future.

in this crazy world, it is nice to have a cyber place to just hang out, even if its only for a few moments...
and feel a positive vibe.
the collective consciousness is a powerful thing.
always strive to raise your resonance.

moi? hanging out in my balmain black suede fringe booties half way to the fourth dimension.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, lbd and louboutin thigh highs

hey you all, how's the week going?
do NOT buy into all that negative holiday depression that seems to be going on.
Raise Your Resonance. always.
if your energy vibrates at a higher level, then you won't be bothered by the lower level crappy stuff around you. really.

moi? best place to shop is my own closet!
i have on my louboutin black suede thigh highs and a vintage lbd i had previously found.
add messy hair and my trademark chauss-celets and i'm good to go.

you vintage shoppers would have a field day shopping in my closet. i don't even know what i have in there...
i am such the little girl when it comes to closet organization.
and i always find forgotten about good stuff.
(ahh, the perks of having a closet in turmoil)
hey, listen up, i can rationalize anything.

and if you are already having True Blood withdrawal symptoms, listen up here
i wanna do bad things with you...

Monday, November 24, 2008

ckparis, barbato boots et al

hello readers,
ok, some chauss rules for monday:

1. do NOT open your mail today. open it tomorrow if you have to. if it's your brokerage or keogh account, you really do NOT want to open it. trust me on this one. it's bad enough hearing the doom and gloom on the tv.
and if you don't have an IRA, congratulations! you have NOT lost any money...

2. and if you just have credit card bills to pay, they will be there tomorrow. promise.

3. so, go out and do something for someone else today. and it dosen't have to cost you any money. just SMILE at that person who looks so lonely or hold the door for an elderly person or a person with a ton of packages.
or if you are really brave, say hello to a stranger on the street. it is amazing what a simple "good morning" and a smile can do for someone when they don't expect it.

4. don't buy into all the depressing crappy negativity. the economy is not gonna change over night. mass hysteria is a scary thing.
so just raise your resonance and rise above it.

5. it is just as easy to be miserable as is is to be positive. and positive energy comes back to you tenfold...

6. if all else fails, eat chocolate.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and gucci python

hello all. how is your weekend going?

moi? i am motivating myself to go and do stairs. i am such the procrastinator...
i bought dark chocolate pretzels today. so, i figure if i eat a couple, my motivation will kick in...
and the bittersweet/salty thing works for me.

True Blood is on tomorrow...and then i think that's it for a while. :(
so, don't miss it.

i went shopping today in my own closet. this is a definite perk to being closet disorganized. i always find forgotten treasures under my own roof. lol.

i have on my barbato boots,alexander wang basics and my gucci first season black python hysteria hobo (found in my own closet!)
this python hobo gets better with use. the first season s/s '07 hysteria pythons have white scales underneath the black python. the bag has these radical silvery spots from the mixture of black and white.
my rock and roll python... :)

the gucci pythons from this season f/w'08 are all one color and topped with sealant.
not my personal look.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis thru the looking glass with tina chow and balenciaga

good morning readers. just a quickie to wish you all a GREAT weekend filled with dark chocolate or what ever is your guilty pleasure...

did you buy a stranger a coffee? (see prior post)here
try it.
it may take you to new places...

anyway, click on the pix. you may catch a glimpse of d. in the background.
and maybe a glimpse of moi avec my balenciaga astrogirl boots and tina chow crystal necklace.
zip me up.

ckparis, thomas wylde part deux

hello readers. how is your week going? tell me, i wanna know.

moi? here are pix of my thomas wylde first season black distressd moto jacket. the inside of the jacket has a tete de mort pattern. note the turned up sleeves in the pix which show the skull lining.
the jacket was made in LA and found it at leclaireur in paris. don't ask...
i also have on my dior moto boots and usual basic black stuff.

did you all step out of your comfort zone recently? try it today.
take a small risk, or overcome a fear by stepping out of your box.
nothing major, just a smile and a hello at a stranger or

buy the coffee for the next person in the car behind you at the starbucks drive thru line...(what a way to make someone's day and totally selfless amd unexpected)

positive energy can be contagious and you might just start a preholiday trend...
and positive energy comes back to you ten fold on the universe's own time clock.
just as negative energy has a nasty way of boomeranging right back to the person who throws it.

see you on the astral plane.

Monday, November 17, 2008

ckparis, givenchy, barbato et al.

hey readers, how are you all doing?
first order of business, green juice. yeah.
chauss magic green powder. yeah.
if your blood is a certain level of alkalinity, it can't support cancer or heart disease. sort of like the ph of water. lots of food, ie. meat, sugar, raise your blood's acidity level. greens and more greens increase your blood's alkalinity.

chauss magic green powder is a bunch of different greens in highly concentrated form.
add a shot of wheat grass, a couple of freshly squeezed limes and you're good to go.
you can buy a basic green powder at any health food store. go easy. you may experience headaches or nausea if you've never had it before depending on your toxicity levels.
ok, more on this stuff later. so many of you asked about it. if you want me to explain more, let me know.

moi? barbato boots, secession t and givenchy 'gale.

have a FABULOUS day tomorrow.
and do something for someone else.
even if it's just a smile to a stranger or bringing coffee and a cookie to someone who isn't expecting it from you.
it may just get you to unexpected places...
always strive to raise your resonance.

see you on the astral plane.

1. i always start the day with the juice of 2 freshly squeezed limes, 32 oz of distilled water and secret chauss green powder a/k/a chauss magic green juice.

2. i drink chauss magic green juice AVANT starbucks and before any food.

3. after chauss magic green juice, i adore starbucks with soy foam and no sugar or fake sugar. pure adrenaline RUSH...

4. i can blank out magnetic credit card strips when i get mad or frustrated. (without touching them).

5. i balance my chakras every day with a color mediation i designed for Type A people.

6. i love dark chocolate, 72 percent or higher. yeah, adrenaline RUSH again...

see you on the astral plane.
