At a shoot in NY…
 
The weather could not have been better…it was a perfect New York fall day…
 
Couldn't leave home without a couple of cats to keep us company.
A nice view from the loft we usually stay in when we're in NYC!
Autumn has even seeped into the Japanese grocery store next door…
These Pradas look even better atop the crisp fall leaves…
 
And so do my mom's chrome wedge Marni booties…love these shoes! 
Mom wearing Prada peeptoes…
Just doing some laundry…wearing Ann Sofie Back sweater, tan courdoroy pants, Zara scarf, Prada slingbacks
There were too many pictures to cram into one post…pictures from Paris coming soon!

'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!
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!
