burberry prorsum and thoughts of vintage lbds and helene zubeldia

hey readers. what are you all doing? i am trying to get a couple of cocktail outfits put together for the weekend. the theme seems to be vintage little black dresses and maybe a real vintage herve leger (pre bcbg!) little brown dress.
i did get a fabulous new helene zubeldia necklace (love her stuff!!!) this week which will be a great addition to one or two of these outfits...i will post pix of the necklace next week. it has crystals on a leather cord that can be worn long or short or somewhere in between...
and you know what, i dont have to worry about the shoes... i am thinking loub. loub mads or loub black patent very prives or maybe ysl black patent tributes. ok guys, you get the drift..
see you on the astral plane.

camille's cupcakes!

ckparis and vintage little black dress with 'tude

hey readers. sometimes the stars just align and everything works. know what i mean? i found this vintage lbd today at my favorite vintage store. i have not been in a while and the prices have gone sky high because it has gotten a lot of publicity and celebrity visits. ( my personal encounters at the store are stories for another time...)
anyway, this dress has illusion panels on the front and back in black mesh. super cute. i wore it with my favorite marc jacob black booties. i am having fun today. hope you all are too.
sending you all lots of white light!

giambattista valli shoes and the astral plane

hello readers. i am sitting outside a....starbucks(big suprise) here.
antoine, you have gotta try this stuff, it is quite addictive.
anonymous, my starbucks drug of choice is a grande bone dry soy cap. i like the caffeineated foam. :) sort of like an extra rush after you finish the espresso part when you eat the foam with a spoon. do i sound like a junkie or what?

oh the valli part....the fall 08 shoes like amazing. i am wearing the fall 08 6 inch black suede platform ones on the astral plane tonight. see you there...

ckparis and starbucks

what is it about attitude adjusters? i just love them. starbucks in the am when you just can't get it together and are running on automatic pilot,
french cures at lunch, at dinner, at the opening of RO store in nyc (planning party at mj's),
dark chocolate anytime, and the most dangerous fix of all...
the purchase of the perfect pair of shoes or boots or bracelet (right matt?) or bag or scarf..

burberry runway platform sandal envy

hey readers. let me set up the pix frame for you. i was wearing my burberrry black lizard ankle straps while shopping yesterday.
d. caught this woman staring at my shoes and caught it on camera. you can see my arm with my usual braclets and hermes kelly dog bracelet. the random woman shopper is staring down at my sandals. and if you look in the background, the male sales associate is watching the whole thing.
d. says this happens all the time so we tried to document it. you know what i mean?

as always, make it a great day. right now i am doing my green juice with starbucks anticipation...

moon over...

so in case you were crazed the other day, and didn't know why... pix of the full moon from two days ago.

ckparis and the cruise ship

good evening readers. how are you all doing? i'm listening...
me? well, i live on a waterway which leads into the bay. it is really kind of shallow, no more than 8-10 feet deep, very residential, got it?
anyway, i walked outside to my back yard parking lot and across the waterway parked in front of a private residence is ship. yeah, a cruise ship lives across the waterway. see pix.
ahhh, just another day in paradise.
see you on the astral plane.

good evening readers. full moon...any howling?
me with my new burberry runway black lizard platforms. they wore these with black ankle socks in the show with multiple outfits. what brand of ankle socks to you like with sandals? i think i would like to try some semi-opaque ones.
i am such the shoe/boot addict...and you know what? it is a TOTAL attitude adjustment drug. and in the words of scarlett o'hara, i'll think about it tomorrow...
see you on the astral plane.

the eyes are the window to the soul

see what happpens when you drink frozen pomegrante magaritas?
my favorite inside out gray shirt still...i added a barette to my hair. low pixel cell phone pix, but you get the drift.
and those powerful scorpio eyes. don't ever cross a scorpio. very loyal as a friend, and demands the same back as well.

see you on the astral plane.

p.s. what until you see what moved into my back yard.

rick owens trucker 03

good morning readers. don't you love when you find a fabulous piece of clothing that just works? and the best part is, you already own it!!! not being anal about the organization of my wardrobe, i sometimes find fantastic pieces that i have totally forgotten about which have become tucked and smooshed in the back corner of some box or drawer...
in a frantic search to locate another long sleeve black yohji shirt, i stumbled on this rick owens piece from his trucker '03 collection which i think i bought years ago in paris. it is a rayon/cashmere with a veritical seam down the back in typical rick owens fashion. (hhmmm, where did the row get that idea?)
and the best part, the temperature here actually was in the 50's for about 45 seconds the other morning... perfect unexpected shirt for the perfect unexpected weather. ahhh,don't you love when the universe provides?
now, about those burberry black lizard platforms....
oh, and another chauss addiction, starbucks...make it a great day! and check in here
and let us know what's up.

antoine, did france fall off the map?

matt, when does the bal auction end? i hope it has a happy ending. :)

camille, good luck with the fabric store adventures.

divinitus, don't you love when you get a really superior cup of your usual starbucks?i seem to have different experiences with the same order all the time.

the search for chic, i am thinking about what would be the perfect next bag for you...

mj, hey. i left you a return

ckparis and the search for cupcakes and burberry

matt, yes! the search has ended. and you know what? they look better than they tasted! too much sugar and not enough chocolate. i have a real thing for bittersweet chocolate, 70% or higher.... another vice along with shoes....

and speaking of shoes....i just bought the burberry runway black lizard ankle strap you know the ones i mean? i think i need to be in shoe/boot buyers anonymous. pix this weekend!

ckparis and chakra balancing

hey readers, ok by popular request, let's work up to a color meditation.
there are 7 major chakras in your body which are associated with the colors of the rainbow.
chakra 1 red
chakra 2 orange
chakra 3 yellow
chakra 4 green
chakra 5 blue
chakra 6 indigo or purple
chakra 7 violet or white (it's the crown chakra, more later..)

ok, got all that? each chakra center controls different physical parts of the body and represents different emotions. absorb all this and we will go from there on another day. ok?

and me? i am wearing my favorite inside out gray smooshy shirt , dior glasses and a panerai.

see you on the astral plane.

hey readers, how are you all doing? here is pix of a peacock roaming around the island. ahhhh, just another day in paradise...

and me? thought i would let you in on me blogging-in-action.
i am usually lounging on a bed sprawled out with the closest laptop i can get my hands on.
and yes, i do blog in loubs sometimes. hey, the more you wear them, the lower the loub cost-per-use factor. and that's what i learned from wharton economics? scary...

platform shoes!

hey gang, i think i need to check into shoe buying rehab. the problem is, the clients will all be like me, and we will trade names and numbers of sales associates all over the globe who would be happy to indulge us with the latest shoe fix..i really get such a rush buying new shoes... can you relate?
anyway, here is a quick cell phone pix of my latest. i will post better pix and more info later. i kinda like how the light twinkles around them in this pix. it creates a nice aura.

louboutins and the search for cupcakes

good evening readers. i hope you are all having a fabulous weekend. i have on my loub black suede thigh highs and a vintage chanel patent bag. i will have to take some more pix of the bag because it is really cool.
anyway, you have no idea how difficult it is to get a cupcake here. where is a sprinkles when you need one?
an internet search via blackberry while driving in the car revealed 2 sources. the first source told me they only did special orders and needed 3 days notice. i even asked if they had any extras today bc i was in their vincinty. answer: no.
the second source turned out to have a "for rent" sign in the window. i called their number and got armando's voice mail.
still cupcakeless, i settled for frozen yogurt at a place called "red kiwi". yup, a knock off of 'pink berry". however, lloyd did stamp my buy 10, get one free card 3 times. (ah, and i really prefer angelina's...)

white light

hey readers, a low pixel example of the one of the many forms white light can take...if you are feeling insecure, depressed, afraid or sad, surround yourself with some form of it. i still like to outline my bed with white light so i don't have bad dreams... although, i have been busy traveling at night...
if you are reaaaaaallllly tired, tell your guides you want to stay in your bed tonight because you are exhausted and need a night to really rest and not to play. they will respect your wishes.
see you on the astral plane.
p.s. i saw a rainbow today and then d. sent me a pix of the same rainbow from his perspective without knowing i had experienced a 'bow myself...collective consciousness strikes again.

ysl tributes still...

hello readers. ok, before i get distracted, let's talk about grounding. if you are having a hard time, or need to center yourself, try this.
imagine you have little branches growing out of the bottom of your feet. (it's ok to visualize this thru your shoes, grow those branches right out of your stilettos or favorite rick owens sneakers)
picture the branches getting thicker and thicker and longer and longer... let them expand right through the floor, through the bottom of where ever you may be and continue on throught the actual layers of the earth, all the way to the molten center. you are now grounded.
you are now ready to experience and focus your complete energy resources into whatever project you have been putting off for whatever reason. got it?
students, try this before a serious cramming session, you might like it.
this technique can work brilliantly for those who easily get distracted from the task at hand. and if you win the pulitzer for the best writing, etc., please remember to thank me for the motivational tip in your acceptance speech.

yeah, ysl black patent tributes still.... whatever makes you smile, (still cheaper than therapy or not) lots of white light.

rick owens moto jacket has arrived

high heels and wheels

good evening readers. hope you all had an interesting day. tonight is about alternative vehicles... the first pix is a very well dressed boy who was spotted cruising aroung the island in his big wheels. i think he maybe a future tfser... really bs, i think you've got some competition as to who will be the youngest member.
the other pix is my head photoshopped on a high heel stiletto with wheels. hmmmmm.

being a typical chauss, i zoned out to the 4th dimension in an 8 story parking garage and this guy in a sports car with the convertible top down offered to help me find my lost car by riding up and down the levels. and you know, i was wearing stilettos....
anyway, we located my car, exchanged cards and the next day i had this photo in my email. i guess i mentioned i had a thing for fabulous shoes. true story.
see you on the astral plane.

p.s. stay tuned for my very first official guest on this blog. matt's interview- with-fedora is in the works.
