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

I have been to Paris and it is one of my favorite cities. You must not have stayed at George V/Four Seasons because the internet there is great. We stayed there and it is one of the best hotels in Paris (where all the celebs stay also). Next time you go to Paris check it out! Congrats on the Chanel fitting. They have tons of Chanels in Paris, don't they?

See me & my Jimmy Choos in Barcelona @ www.fashionsnag.com

That's amazing Jane..I'm Looking forward to see you in Chanel !!!

Photo of Sandra

That's so cool. I'm so happy for you!! Btw, I hope you can continue your education (maybe in fashion major???) after you graduate high school, but anyhow this is just my opinion hehe because school even though its boring it taught me a lot of basics in the dream job I have right now. But yeah, you inspired me so much to become myself and your experience and talent and creativity definitely the reason why you are so successful now and in the future. (forgive my English). xoxo.

You should have organised a night out with your french fans...

I saw you and your mum leaving the Chanel boutique yesterday, but I was too shy to say anything. Mostly because it wasn't my best outfit/ hair day and you both looked so gorgeous I felt intimidated!
Anyway, congratulations for the invitation, sounds amazing! This kind of things make me consider starting a blog...
