ckparis, balmain booties and the astral plane

hey all, how was your monday?
what is it with the third dimension and mondays?
do NOT let other people pull you down or drain your positive energy.
protect yourself and don't buy into someone else's crap.

easy protection tip:
surround yourself with white light at the first feeling of insecurity, anger, or negativity.
it's easy. just draw an imaginary white outline around yourself and keep adding layers of white light around it as you need it. it is ok to fill up the entire room.
when you practice this, you will be able to just think white light and it will have the same effect.

moi? balmain black suede booties, et al.

the third can be a tough place to be these days. hang in there.
and then there is the fourth...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and diesel vintage back pack

salutations. how is your weekend going?

i slept waay too late today (major dreams this way) and missed my stairs workout.
i adapted a very scarlett o'hara 'tude and decided i would think about it tomorrow...

i did find the perfect size smoooshy diesel vintage denim back pack at a local vintage shop. the energy from this piece is truly amazing.
yes, inanimate objects do vibrate energy. more on that one later... but let's just say if you have a coup de coeur for a certain something, well, it might just be meant to be...
i will have to post some better pix. this one was a quickie. hey, you gotta work with what you have.
it has been well loved by its previous owner and is designed perfectly with pockets inside and out.
anyway, monsieur diesel was calling my name, chauss....please take me home with you.
so, i did. :)

i paired monsieur diesel denim back pack with a destroyed denim mini and basic black.
denim on denim, to borrow the name of my new friend, cruz's blog. check it out here.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, balmain and white linen

hey readers. how is your week going? tell me...
well, remember the $13,000 balmain jacket in the window i blogged about the other day? well, it sold.
and in today's pix, i am looking into the same window. this time, an $8000 black studded balmain skirt is in the window on the right side.

i have on my shirt brand white linen shirt/dress/coat thing. i am wearing it with a white tank, destroyed denim shorts and my marc jacobs bronze leather booties.
pix were taken with my blackberry bold. sometimes you gotta do the best with what you've got.

and if your normal third dimension routine is just too much for you, take a break.
for an hour, a couple of hours, or for a day...
go for it.
sometimes putting a new spin on something usual is all you need.

have a FABULOUS friday.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and balmain runway jacket

hey readers. how is your weekend?
sometimes you can can find some interesting stuff down in the 'nana republic of the southern most portion of the U.S.
in the first pix, i am looking in the window of lulu couture checking out the $13,000 retail price of the famous balmain runway jacket.
ahhh, just another day in paradise...
this one was the only balmain jacket the store got. i gotta say, i think some of you talented diy bloggers can make some great inspirational pieces of this look...

if you click on the pix, you can make out the balmain lace top, distressed moto jeans and crystal vest in the corner of the window.

moi? i passed on the balmain jacket, lace top, moto jeans and crystal vest in favor of a fabulous
white linen shirt/dress/coat thing that d. pointed out to me. the total cost of it was way less than the tax on the balmain jacket. lol.
i will post pix soon.

have a FABULOUS monday.
remember, it's just as easy to be positive as it is to be negative.
give it a shot.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and see you on the astral plane

hey all, how are you doing? tell me...
this caricature of me was done by the adorable and talented alicia of instant vintage.
i think she captured the chauss 'tude.
she based it on this pix

thank you so much alicia for taking the time and effort to create this.
i stumbled upon alicia's blog several months and we quickly became 'net friends by reading each other's blogs and leaving comments.
stop by her blog and tell her chauss sent you over for a look see.

have a FABULOUS weekend.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, givenchy 'gale and the restart button

hey all, how is you week going?

moi? hanging out on the avenue of brickell... i have on my rick owens black distressed leather moto jacket avec my black 'gale and favorite marc jacob booties.

feeling crappy? depressed?
i was talking to a. on the phone and he sounded kinda down. i asked him what was wrong and he said he binged on some homemade warm-from-the-oven chocolate chip cookies last night and had a sugar hangover that was a major energy drain.
i suggested he buy some pickles bc the sour/salty sensation would give him a fresh start.
a. thought that was a great way to hit the reset button...
you can do the same with ANTYHING.
if you don't like the way you feel, hit the reset button and try again.
you just may like it...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, segafredo and balenciaga white first

hello, how is your weekend going? tell me...

moi? did 138 flights of hi-rise stairs yesterday.
and 182 flights of hi-rise stairs today. woo-hoo.
listen guys, if you are depressed or feeling anxious, try this stuff. it is a real 'tude adjuster. seriously.
do you think i would do all those stairs for nothing?

here i am hanging out with some new friends i met today at Neiman Marcus. hey, i will always chat up an interesting face. :)

and since you all liked my last set of 'nana republice sagafredo pix, here is another one from today's segafredo trip.
i have on chauss closets finds (gotta LOVE my closet!) consisting of my favorite marc jacob black leather booties, random denim mini skirt, balenciaga white first
(05 vintage bien sur) and relatively new $8.80 f-21 tank top.
hey, i can get a rush from buying a couple of smooshy tanks and t shirts too. :)
amazing coffee and shopping (and stairs) and i'm good to go.

Have a FABULOUS monday!

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and gucci triple strap platforms

hey all.
remember how i told you i got busted trying on gucci platforms?
here is the evidence.
d. took this paparazzi surveillance video with my blackberry bold while i was preoccupied playing with platforms. there is a longer version, but it needs some editing. i have to play with that one.

what is it about trying on a fabulous pair of shoes?
for me, i always feel like a kid in a candy store.
it is a fabulous rush. really.
i am such the adrenaline junkie.
give me dark chocolate, a double espresso made from peruvian (yeah) coffee beans, a pair of black leather boots, stilettos, or platforms. ahhhhhhhhhhhhh.

anyone else get a rush from trying on a great pair of shoes?
and the gucci platforms...?
to be continued.
be afraid, be very afraid.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, segafredo, and chauss shoe dreams

salutations. what have you all been doing?

moi? hanging out in the 'nana republic of the southern most portion of the U.S.
i did have a fabulous cappucino avec soy foam topped with a chocolate syrup happy face today. what more could a girl want?
oh yeah, gucci platforms...
i got busted trying them on when d. sent me a secret paparazzi video of my shoes escapade...i sent may and ihaveadog copies of the video clip in case the one on my blackberry bold goes awol.
i gotta figure out how to upload it here for your viewing pleasure.
chauss in shoe land.
i keep playing the video shoe clip over and over on my b. bold (it's only about 10 seconds) but i am feel like a kid watching barney the purple dinosaur for the very first time.
utterly mesmorized.
be afraid, be very afraid.

make it a FANTASTIC week.
hey, just put the idea out there, one day at a time, and see what happens.
remember , positive energy comes back to you ten fold and
negative energy has a nasty way of boomeranging right back to the one throwing it.

if you get really desperate, a cappucino with a chocolate syrup happy face and a square of bittersweet chocolate is a powerful 'tude adjuster...
call me and i'll come with.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, alexander wang, paige premium and givenchy nightingale et al.

good morning. i am getting motivated to do high rise stairs. i think about 138 flights should be enough for a 'tude adjustment.
and good rationale to eat dark chocolate and banana nut bread.

and what do you have planned for the weekend? tell me...

moi? posing in the gables in my alexander wang black distressed leather vest, dior moto boots, paige premium jeans avec my givenchy 'gale.

i was on the house phone trying to sort out car insurance and the cell phone rang.
my ring tone is the True Blood theme song. (thanks may!)
and the agent said, "oh, you are watching True Blood."
i responded that it was just my ring tone bc the new True Blood stuff won't be on until this summmer...
is it summer yet?
no, just day light savings.
c'est la vie...

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, vintage rick owens and marc jacobs booties

hello readers. how are you all doing?

moi? i have on my rick owens brown distressed leather moto jacket, circa 2002. a true ro classic. the leather on this one is so different from my ro moto jacket cira 2008.
i also have my marc jacob black suede pom pom booties avec my givenchy smooshy-to-perfection distressed black leather 'gale. ( i have a distressed black patent 'gale in my closet that i will have to locate...)
the ivory scarf is from paris. leather and lace. yeah.

may, i tried on those gucci black platforms you have lurking in a recent pix on your blog...
'nuf said about those for now...

have a FANTASTIC friday.
even if you have to talk yourself into it...
look in the mirror when you wake up and say out loud, "today is gonna be a great day."
hey, put it out there ...
you may be suprised what you get back.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis and the adventures of wardrobe malfunctions in the 'nana republic

hey all. how are you?
now for something completely different from my usual chauss posts...

ok, time to lighten up and be amused with the adventures of ckparis in just another day in paradise.
these pix were all taken the same day in the banana republic of the southern most portion of the U.S.

the taxi in the pix has a bumper sticker which says, "i have no idea where i am going." this is really true.
sorry you can't really make out the writing, but this was taken by d. with a blackberry while driving...

next pix is a mannequin avec a wardrobe malfunction taken yesterday of a display window in the front of a coral gables BeBe store.

this seems to be the new 'nana republic store window trend bc the last pix was taken of a display window in front of another store in south beach the same day.

what is going on?
i know i blogged to you all about the recent major energy shift in the universe, but 'nana republic store windows are putting their own spin on it.
a gravity issue peut-etre?

ahhhh, just another day in paradise.
and don't ever ask a 'nana cab driver directions...
it would be a total waste of time.
just sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.

see you on the astral plane.

ckparis, blank nyc jeans and dior moto boots

hello readers, how are you? how was your weekend? tell me...
lots of stairs for me. 276 flights this weekend.
hey, i am an efficient stop meditation and exercise works for me.

major energy shift on friday night/early saturday morning...
ok, i really don't follow astrology so if anyone knows what happened, please let me know.
it was mentally and physically obvious to me. ( i have been told on numerous occasions that i think everyone is on my level, so if you can't relate to this post, just look at the pix.)
anyway, ihaveadog or anyone else...universal explanation peut-etre?

this energy shift was a good thing, guys.
but you know the universe operates on its on time clock,
so be patient.

back on the third...i have on my dior black leather moto boots and a pair of blank nyc jeans in a smooshy faded acid watch.
i love blank nyc jeans. can't beat the fit for the price point.

have a FANTASTIC monday. :)

see you on the astral plane.
