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!!
