When I went to Paris with Chanel...

NOT very frugal, but a girl can dream, can't they?!
Most of you saw on Instagram my pics but thought I'd share a bit about my wonderful day.  It was a very special moment in my career, I was invited to represent Red Magazine in Paris and view a new watch collection from Chanel, after which they gave us a tour of Coco Chanel's apartment. This was a once-in-a-lifetime for me, and mainly because you cannot pay to go in, you have to be invited. Eek! And what an incredible place it was...

I was surprised at how cluttered, dark and gold everything was...not that it wasn't amazing, but just such a contrast to the chic monochrome and beige that the Chanel boutiques stand by
The logo'd floor of the Salon above the Boutique...

The famous mirrored staircase where Coco Chanel used to sit to watch everyone's reactions to the fittings:


Still from the film 'Coco Before Chanel'
The suede sofa - even the cushions are quilted, like her bags...





And of course, we got to see beautiful Paris! J'adore...

    1. Yes, it was suede, too, which was apparently very forward-thinking back in the 20s!
