The exact second that Rihanna started playing I knew it was love!~ Like something out of a whimsically chic, fantasy turned reality and not so fiction fairy tale, Karl Lagerfeld turned the Grand Palais into one of the most dreamiest and haute-est supermarket's that the world has ever and probably WILL ever see, with a collection that shantae'd it's way down the aisles equally inspiring and consuming all of us present at the show. This Fall/Winter 2014 runway show was MY VERY FIRST CHANEL SHOW and what a way to be introduced to the world of Chanel! The collection was a gorgeous and beautifully done mix and mash of colors, textures, and some of the most inventive accessories that played with the theme of the show to a T. Check out some moments I captured from my view at the CHANEL Fall/Winter 2014 runway show ..

So... I have a question for you.... Have you ever wondered what it is like to have enough CHANEL around you and readily available for you to play with that it made you slightly light headed!?!? Well... LISTEN UP & LOOK NO MORE HUNNIE because do I have something for you!.. I did Paris Fashion Week as a guest of Chanel for a super amazing project where 6 bloggers from around the world were selected to DISCOVER the world of CHANEL. For day 1 of my unbelievable experience with CHANEL here in Paris, I was given a tour of the new Avenue Montaigne boutiques (right across the street from each other). One boutique, number 42, is specifically made for accessories and jewelry while the other, number 51, carries the pret-a-porter, fragrance, beauty & some accessories as well. It was such a pleasure to learn about the details of the boutiques, how they vary but still stay the same and the incredible details that go into them as well, from the art (even in the elevator) to the architecture and the inspiration all thriving from Mademoiselle Chanel, herself. After this lovely tour we were escorted to the private change rooms on the top floor of 51 Avenue Montaigne where we were greeted by a humongous fitting room filled from wall to wall with EVERYTHING classic, iconic and new from Chanel. It's here where I had the chance to not only play with some of the most iconic Chanel clothing, accessories, jewelry, bags, etc. I was also lucky enough to select some pieces to wear for the show the following day.. What a dream right?!?!... And to believe, this was only day 1!!

Just another stunning Parisienne night, stumbling on the cobblestones from L'Avenue on Rue François. Then coincidentally stumbling across those same cobblestones to le' boutique who so happen to be wearing = THIS situation right here outside of the Balmain boutique on 44 Rue François. As if you didn't know that THIS was was bound to happen at some point during the days in Paris...

CIAO CIAO CIAO!! Hello from Milan you guys! What's up!? What did I miss!? I am beyond crazy out here in Milano for women's RTW Fashion Week! As you know it's my first time doing the full circuit from New York to London, Milan to Paris and needless to say it is WURKKKK HUNNIE! But I am living for and loving every second of it! I am so grateful to have the opportunity to take a month from my life to travel and see amazing shows and share such an amazing experience! Here in Milan my focus was for my favorite brands that are such big supporters of me.. Versace, Just Cavalli & Roberto Cavalli! Each and every of these shows was unique and has such a flare! Before we get into details about them here is a recent look from before the Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter 2014 runway show which by the way was on FIRE!! #LITERALLY.. Side note, how MAJOR is this men's Roberto Cavalli Fall/Winter coat I am wearing? It is undoubtedly my newest fixation in my wardrobe, can't wait to share more looks with it!

GOOD DAY from London! Seriously, words can't even describe how much of an amazing time I have been having out here in London during Fashion Week with American Express UK! Their Amex Insiders concierge service has proven to be the BEST way to navigate through a foreign city during one of its craziest times! Getting from Point A to Point B never looked so CHIC! That being said I wanted to share with you some of the Amex Insiders concierge services that was provided to me during my stay here in London!
