ckparis and the fourth dimension

hey all, just a quickie to say good morning.
paparazzi shot of moi in dressing room trying on more LBDs...(big suprise)

and if you invest in the stocks or bonds, do NOT open your monthly statement this month. really. just leave in on your desk unopened.
you really will be better off. trust me on this one.
and if you do not have a stock portfolio, consider yourself lucky. you may not have invested anything, but you haven't LOST anything either....

and i know i have a lot of students who read my blog. education is invaluable. so if school sucks now, hang in there. i still have nightmares about not turning in my term papers on time. (really)
so if you think you are studying useless information, i hear you. however, it will make you a more interesting person and you never know when you may pull some of that stuff out of your head and become entertaining at a cocktail party.
chauss october 29, 2008 rules:
1. do NOT open any mail about stock or bond investments.
2. read your irrelevant text books and write your term papers. (think cocktail party conversation)
3. buy dark chocolate, cupcakes or cookies today.
4. offer some sugar to someone else and share a smile. you may just make a new friend...
5. positive energy will come back to you ten fold and negative enery has a nasty way of boomeranging right back to the person throwing it.

got it? i am going to starbucks for a double espresso with a dollop of soy foam. yummmmmmmmmmmy. let's get wired.( i am such the adrenaline junkie..) wanna come?

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, tina chow crystal et al.

hey readers. how was your weekend?

after a very third dimensional week, i was kinda energy drained. when shopping dosen't motivate me to do stairs, you know i am in need of zzzzzzzzzzzzs.

i did buy a really interesting vintage LBD. it is body con and has a low black mesh back. yes, pix soon.

moi today? basic black stuff (big suprise), alexander wang black distressed leather vest and my magic tina chow crystal on a black suede cord. it can take me to any dimension i want to experience...

sweet dreams you all. tomorrow is gonna be a FANTASTIC day for you. put it out there and let the universe provide.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis says je t'aime herve leroux part deux

hey readers, how is your weekend going? get ready...
true blood is on tonight. can you stand the wait?
xax, are you caught up?
may, are you watching it tonight or still in hawaii?
ihaveadog, i'll be looking for that hand coming out of the ground...

dana, at your request, here are some better pix of my original vintage herve leger dress with my christian louboutin mads. my photographer was not in the mood for a photo shoot, but i got a few shots.

antoine and xax, the dress is actually an espresso brown. i don't know if you can tell its a little brown dresss, not a little black dress, but i guess LBD still applies...

the label on this vintage LBD is herve leger, made in france. (not the new made in hong kong version that also has the herve leger label.) the original material is a tighter weave.
herve sold his name to bcbg and now has a couture atelier in the 6th arrondissment in paris.
herve now designs under the name herve l. leroux.
i would love a new herve leroux bandage dress in black...

herve, are you reading this?
thank you for being such a creative genius with material. i will see you in a few months.
however, you can send me a black bandage dress now. my birthday is next month...

(not made in hong kong like the new ones being manufactured by bcbg)
and my christian louboutin mad marys.
what is it about me avec the french?

see you on the astral plane. (please bring tequila)

ckparis and givenchy nightingale et al.

good morning readers. how are you all?
moi? verrrrrrrrrrry third dimensional week....
just a quickie hello to tell you all to make it GREAT day and have fun.
if you have not done something out of your comfort level, try it today. you might just get to a new level.
positive energy will come back to you ten fold.
and negative energy has this nasty habit of bommeranging right back to the one who throws it.

paparazzi shot of me avec my givenchy 'gale. the smooshy leather just gets better and better with use. i think you can see the ostrich handles in this shot.
and i have on my new balenciaga astroboy boots.

ckparis, balenciaga boots and astroboy

salutations, how are you all doing? tell me. i wannna know.

shaq has featured me avec my shoes again on the blog, hott heels. shaq chose pix of me with my balenciaga black leather motorcycle booties and my ysl 6 inch black patent leather original tributes.
you can check out the pix here.
thanks for the shout out, shaq.

i am having so much fun in my new bal black leather boots. maybe, a cartoon robot type of giddiness?
d. is convinced nicky g. must have watched this cartoon, AstroBoy, for inspiration on designing the bal boots. apparently, AstroBoy is a robot with legs made of rocket engines under his outer boots. check out this 1963 trailer of AstroBoy i found on
what do you all think?

i am mesmerized by the double bootie concept. inside the bal high boot, is a hidden short boot.
d. says nicky g. just followed the female form.
things that make you go hmmmm...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis avec balenciaga boots, alexander wang et al

hey readers, how are you? i am in a giddy mood today. SMILE! and if that doesn't work, grab some caffeine and try again. i am flying on a late double espresso topped with soy foam and NO sugar or artifical crappy sweeteners.
pure, unadulterated caffeine JOLT!
man, i love a rush...
i am lucky that i can get off on a $2.00 bar of dark chocolate as well as $$$$$ boots...

which brings us to balenciaga boots!
something about these bal boots make me want to walk around and smile. soooo much fun. soooo much 'tude. yeah.

more bal boot pix to come. have a FANTASTIC day. and remember to do something out of your personal comfort zone today.
you may be really suprised what you get back. :)
positive energy given out by you to others will come back tenfold.

just remember, the universe operates on its own time clock. not a 24/7 third dimension time clock.
be patient.

see you on the astral plane.

good evening readers. i so operate on west coast time. how are you all doing?

moi? well, if you look carefully, you can make out my new vintage
(oxymoron or what?) choker.

better close up pix of my neck avec crystal choker will come later in the week
when True Blood is back on. can you stand the anticipation?
is bill hot or what?

oh yeah, i am striking a pose with my grey daftbird smooshy t shirt..

ckparis and the blue velvet jacket at starbucks

hey, readers. what's going on? how's your week?

moi? i am sitting in one of the local starbucks i like to frequent. these red fuzzy chairs make it feel like i am in some vampire after hours bar.
too much True Blood on the brain, peut-etre. lol.

anyway, i really feel like i crossed dimensions in these pix.
somewhere like chauss down the rabbit hole...

i have on the blue crushed and shredded vintage velvet jacket i told you all about avec noir.
notice the cool modern silver snaps and the frayed velvet edges.
it sorta fits in with the red fuzzy chairs in some warped and wonderful way.
krystal, what song should be playing in the background?

hey, i've got a new starbucks drink in the am now.
double shot of espresso with a dollop of soy milk foam in a short cup.
no sugar or fake sugar substitute crap. hard core.
immediate adrenaline rush.
attitude adjustment in a paper cup. yeah.

btw, matt, the sterling silver skull bracelet looks perfect on you. see if my new starbucks drink can give you an energy rush.

and to all my readers who are having a tough time, change your outlook. now.
chaussism rule 12: {ihaveadog, i will leave out the(b)(6) part}
it is just as easy to be positive, as it is to be negative.
so, no anger or depression today. if you keep telling youself, everything is gonna work out,
maybe it just will. what's the downside?
so, make it a great day.

see you on the astral plane.
