Bye Paris!!

Hello from Paris! I'm sitting here in the airport...the only place I've had internet so far. It was broken in our hotel but I guess thats the way life goes sometimes. Why waste a beautiful weekend in Paris worrying about the stupid internet?

The past three days here have been crazy...definitely one of the most amazing trips I've ever taken. I've never been to Paris before and I am sad that my stay here was so brief.  It's just beginning to look like autumn and its absolutely romantic.

The reason I came to Paris was for a fitting at Chanel Haute Couture...I was recently referred by Vogue for an invitation to the Crillon Ball here in Paris in November. It got even more unreal when I was told I was going to be dressed by Chanel. Needless to say, I was simultaneously more excited and more nervous than I have ever been in my life. I still can't believe it happened!

The fitting was yesterday (less than 24 hours ago...I was in the Chanel haute couture fitting room less than 24 hours ago..how crazy is that??) It was like a real life fairy tale...I'm still buzzing from the experience!
I'll tell you more about it later...looks like I have another plane to catch.

Thanks so much for reading..I can't wait to share my pictures with you!

xo Jane

Coucou Jane !
Je suis française et j'ai découvert ton blog dans un magazine de mode français Glamour. Je le regarde de temps en temps, il est vraiment sympa et ton look original.
Donc je ne peux pas m'empécher de te laisser un commentaire sur cet article étant donné que tu es en France!
Profites bien de la France et surtout de Paris pour faire du shopping dans les boutiques de haute couture françaises, ce sont les meilleures :)

What a lucky girl you are ! Crillon ball, you will be a debutante won't you ? I am french i live to on hour from paris and i can imagine what feelings it may give to you to came in just a fashionable city like paris. The ball is a little bit old age thing and you will be with aristocrats girls who are not always the most nice because they thought girls from other countries and non aristocrats don't have the same values as her. ( i know some girls like this). I hope you will find your stuff and enjoy your ball. I hope you ate a lot of macarons.
Kiss from France.

all i can say is.. bitch.

I'm very glad for you, I think that you have been invited for " le bal des débutantes", it's the last and the most beautiful bal in France. It was made for the young european princess to help her finding the Prince Charmant...
You are really lucky because it's a real honor to do it, and you can do it only one time in your life.
You have to take valse lessons.... :o)

Sorry for my very bad english....

Kisses from Paris.
