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!

    Jane that is incredible! Thanks for giving us a behind closed doors look into Chanel :). I’m sure 99% of your readers will never have such an opportunity so thanks for sharing!
    Such an amazing experience, and you looked incredible that day. When you find what you’re meant to do things just have a way of working out… I’d say you’ve accomplished that :).

  111. Eeeeee! So the pretty glossy pictures from Vogue magazine can really materialise themselves somewhere in Paris in the real window of the realll Chanel store. I am more than incredibly amazed! That green has been floating around in my head for such a long time, since the pictures of the runway were published with the matching nailpolish and coral costume jewellery- oh oh oh so devine! And alot of your pictures seemed to have the same hue; of the fountain with the gold and such- subconsiously influenced perhaps? I like reading your blog, showed some of my university friends today and they all oggled the Chanel in such excitement. I think you’ve inspired my entire year to start blogs :) Well amazing. Thank you for uploading all these pretty things, I like living vicariously through you in Chanel couture, I feel suprised that it actually exists in a way! On a real person! Incredible! You are living a dream xx

    You are so unbelievably lucky! I got the chance to go to two of the three Chanel boutiques in Paris last time I was there (there may be more now… I don’t know) but to have the opportunity to be fitted in Chanel couture- that’s amazing. I feel so unaccomplished compared to you (we’re the same age). How on earth did you manage to wear heels walking around Paris though?? My feet were killing me and I was in grungy sneakers. Of course, that was after eight hours straight of walking, haha :]
    Can’t wait to see more photos!

    Real Talk: the only reason why you are able to enjoy this fantasy life that you lead is because you are filthy stinking rich with parents who clearly aren’t looking for a lawyer or doctor out of you. You clearly aren’t attending school of any kind so I suppose the NYTimes article about you WAS spot on. I’m sure it also helps that your mother gets to live vicariously through ALL of your appearances and events. This isn’t an attempt to tear you down but to basically make sure you know that you need to own it. Own the fact that this blog is just a mass of narcissism that feeds the hungry little jealous readers that comment excessively and aggressively. it is their obsession with your blog that has created all of the opportunities that you have been so graciously afforded. I’m not even quite sure what it IS you do apart from wear insanely expensive couture and vintage clothing. Are you a stylist? Designer? I’m just confused, disturbed and completely put off. You’ll probably delete this because this comment is entirely too real for the likes of the mindless drones that write on and on about much they envy, love and adore you but I must say I’m afraid. Afraid that this is the future. Idol worship of a wealthy girl amid economic chaos.
