Chanel recently held an amazingly fragrant art exhibit in New York City to celebrate the new EAU PREMIÉRE, a modernized version of the classic N°5. Originally created in 1921, Chanel N°5 has long been an iconic scent with an instantly recognizable bottle. Housed in a corner space in the Meatpacking District, the exhibition was broken down into five distinctive parts:Read More
Since I was in town to attend my first Paris Fashion Week, I decided to try my hand at some street style photography. I thought, what better place than the Spring Summer 2014 Chanel show. Karl Lagerfeld always draws a large Fashionable crowd. The runway show was held at the magnificent Grand Palais along the Champs Elysees where there were more Chanel bags than you could count. While the Kaiser held an art themed show inside, I managed a few photos outside. (I'm assuming my invitation was lost in the mail?) Attendees opted for a wide range of colors and silhouettes that shown nicely against the pale stone columns and the venue's green gardens; the perfect background for almost any photograph.
Finally, I landed in Fendi where I found it, my birthday gift: a zip around Zucca print wallet with a violet interior. It was the only one they had like it, so naturally I felt like it was fate. I met Sylvio who is now my favorite Fendi sales associate (stop by and ask for him, tell him I said "Hi"). We chatted about the new collections of handbags and shoes and I regaled him with the story of my trip to the Fendi Palazzo in Rome. I was in need of a new wallet having still been heartbroken over the theft of my last one, a Louis Vuitton Zippy. There are 8 card slots, an inside zippered pocket, and plenty of room for cash for more shopping. It is gorgeous, more than functional, and fills a small space in my heart... and handbag!!!
