Monday at Chanel

'Stairway to Heaven'??
A small peek inside the Chanel Haute Couture fitting room at the  31 Rue Cambon store...it was very large and beautiful, with mirrored walls and tall ceilings...when I walked in, a very famous hair stylist was sitting in the studio..his name escapes me now. He looks just like the male model with the beard in the H&M campaign this season!
edit: thank you to a helpful reader...it was John Nollet! He is so handsome.


.........some of the dresses I tried on.....

A very beautiful, stylish, and sweet girl helped me during the fitting. I loved her outfit..especially the shoes!

We were shoe twins...I have the same shoe in white tulle. So great in black satin too.

The whole experience was unbelievable...I had worked myself into a panic in the weeks prior to the fitting. I was almost more anxious than excited by the time I arrived...as soon as I met some of the haute couture team my nerves dissolved. Everyone was very laid-back...of course I enjoyed every second of the fitting!

The gown is so beautiful....

Part of the day was spent getting pictures taken for a press package for Le Bal...I got to see so much of the city!

"I can totally do that!"

Maybe not as well as the photographer could...


My mom and I at the Place de la Concorde..
I wish I were still in Paris!!
I will be back in November for the Crillon Ball..wow, I cannot wait!
