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

    Wow Jane, what can I say, that is absolutely astounding. I mean, it’s the stuff of dreams, Chanel haute couture! You deserve every bit of your success and I’m glad to hear that you had such a great time in Paris (internet or otherwise). Can’t wait to see you post some pictures of your adventures there, and of course your outfit…we are all dying to see just what you look like in it!

    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.

  66. 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?

    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).

    http://www.lebal.fr 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.

    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.

    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!

  179. 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! :)

  180. 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
