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 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

  21. Marion says:

    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 :)

  22. kirstie says:

    whoa, that’s amazing! i really don’t think your life could be any more awesome right now.

  23. Rina says:

    Paris magica place where want to come back more and more! :)

  24. alice says:

    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.

  25. Heloise says:

    all i can say is.. bitch.

  26. Hélène says:

    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.

  62. 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 @

  64. Sandra says:

    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.

  133. Natalie says:

    Sounds like a dream! My mouth is also watering looking at the tray of sweets…
    -Natalie from Shop It To Me

  134. Dru says:

    Congratulations! You will probably be the most interesting of the girls to watch at that debutante ball this year (the majority are chosen just for being from certain families…it’s amazing that a girl who’s actually achieved something – ie you- got chosen).

  135. Rose says: for some serious daydreaming about le Bal de Crillon – incl the names of all the debutantes since it all started in 1991.
    It’s very exciting to see which couture houses were involved from the beginning, and how this, and the jewelry sponsoring, evolved. And even more interesting (and definitely worth a sociological study) to see how from an almost exclusively French élite event, the ball diversified to include European nobility and a princess here and there, billionaire heiresses from all over the world as well as the offspring of various heads of state, famous pop stars and actors. In 2008 only 4 of the girls were French.

  136. Rose says:

    …but what is most piquant of it all: Julia Restoin-Roitfeld debuted in 2001 in Versace and Bee Shaffer in 2004 in … Chanel HC!!!!!
    Makes me do a little happy dance, such tidbits :o)
    ANYWAY, Jane, you are going to have the most exciting time in a marvellous environment, whether you’re ‘only’ attending or truly making your debut in Paris. I’ll be watching the local press…
    Just make sure yu can waltz properly, get a seriously fancy hairdo, and take a spare pair of dancing shoes.

  137. Jobs says:

    It sounds like a very intriguing story to tell. I’ll look forward on reading your next blog.

    Oh my, these thigh high boots are to die for!! they make your legs look endless.
    It’s the first time I leave a comment but I check your blog daily, you have the best style ever among all the fashion bloggers, I love that you don’t follow trends and there’s always a ‘je ne sais quoi’ in your outfits that makes them so unique. You really deserve all these opportunities! I hope I didn’t sound too much of a bootlicker, but I do think every bit of what I’ve written.
    Wish you a good ball & stay in Paris next November, I’m so glad you enjoyed your journey in my city!
    A la prochaine :)

    Hope you have had a wonderful time

    I’m convinced and I know you will be the most beautiful girl as a Debutante at the Crillon’s Bal.

    Jane- do you own a Hermes Birkin bag ? If you do – can you use it and show it to us?

  164. Crystal says:

    Stumbled across an article about you- love your blog! I mentioned it on my blog, if that’s alright :)

    It’s funny- I never tried a macaroon in Paris. Bottega Louie in Downtown Los Angeles has some frightfully good ones.

    Too bad for you that you havent seen the real Paris. Have fun in the microcosm anyway.

  168. Paris Hotels says:

    It is surreal and amazing but that’s Paris. You never know what to expect. I got Jack and myself tickets in wonderful rates through LMT.We are heading there in 2 weeks. Now I just need to hope I’ll also get lucky in Paris. great story, great pictures..

  169. Paris Hotels says:

    lol. You’re right! I fricked out once just because my wireless connection wasn’t working well in the hotel. That’s weird. I was in rome and that’s all I could think about. I’m soooo “connected”. I’m going to Paris next week, and this time, I’m not even taking my laptop with me! :)

  170. i like this part of the blog:”
    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!” is very good

  171. tanya says:

    hey how didi you get invited. it is so cool

  172. IT IS hard to look at the Capitol in Washington, DC, without a frisson of excitement

  173. Super blog avec plein d’inspiration! Je vois d’aprés le nom que tu es fan du Japon!
