THE SHEARLING COAT AND CHANEL

My gorgeous Chanel bag is making another quick appearance. It makes it’s way out of it’s precious garment bag for work trips to Europe or special meetings and events in NYC. It’s time I start wearing it a little bit more. But for now, it’s Easter weekend and I’m all about living in yoga pants..full off-duty mode right now. It is officially the holiday weekend for me and though I will be editing in Premiere Pro with the team and reviewing projects (we have an intense week of shoots coming up), I am still very excited to sleep in on a Sunday and thoroughly enjoy my 24 hours of downtime. It may be spring in NYC, but the breeze is still cold enough to wrap myself up in a shearling coat and little leather gloves before heading out anywhere. I’ve had this stunning Coach jacket for a while now. I’ve never had it photographed, but I wear it so much. It remains a favorite staple piece in my coat closet. Slightly cropped, a little boxy, with an epic and unique mix of purples. You can probably tell that I’m constantly walking on the sunny side of the street and easing into spring by switching out my darks with my lights. Think a cropped off-white jean (I have a slight obsession with Mother Denim) and fun pops of color down to my socks. In NYC, we sort of skip spring and hop straight into summer. I will be anxiously awaiting that day and the smell of hot, steamy summer nights.

TEXTURE PLAY IN LONDON

Et Voila, meet my new Chanel. I saw it in Beverly Hills when I was home in LA, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. I officially picked it up on my recent trip to Paris. Because when in Paris: get a Chanel. Gosh, it’s so pretty, I can’t stop looking at it! I’ve already taken it around the world with me and here, in London. It goes with just about everything. London was incredibly cold this past week. All I wanted to do was snuggle up at the hotel, hop from restaurant to cafe, and hit up the sauna and steam room. I didn’t get much sleep this time around either! There was too much to do and see in such a short amount of time and my internal clock certainly wasn’t wanting to adjust. I was back in town with Armani Beauty yet again for another killer photoshoot that I can’t wait to share with you for their new Face Fabric foundation. I spent a lot of time in and around the Rosewood London, our home base for the trip. It’s a new spot in London for me and I absolutely loved it. I stepped out to explore realizing how very Elton John-esque I looked: tiny sunglasses and a look that somehow didn’t match, yet completely matched. How very English of me.

Ru de la Paix | Paris

The best part of my work travels are the hotels. I like to thoroughly enjoy the room, get a good night’s sleep, and go and out and just get to know the neighborhood. I stumbled across Chanel‘s famous boutique on Rue de Cambon, so you can imagine that I did bring home a little something special for myself. I treated myself to a real Parisian shopping experience and it took no more than 2 seconds. The store was absolutely jam packed with international tourists and there was a long line (sigh). I knew exactly what I wanted. Spotted it on the shelves, chose the color, and was out. This is exactly how I like to shop, fast and easy. More on what’s inside this gorgeous Chanel box coming soon. But back to this insane hotel: I fell in love with the Park Hyatt-Vendôme in Paris. Imagine waking up in a luxurious room of gold, a cool breeze coming in from the two open windows, and the energy of the bustling chic city streets below. It’s exactly what you can expect from being in the heart of the city of love. I could stare out onto Rue de la Paix all day people watching and window shopping. I kept my looks very classic. Throughout my Paris press trip with Armani Beauty, I stuck with my favorite leather pants, metallic blouses, and over-the-top ruffled tunics. Classics with a little twist that can easily be mixed and matched. A velvet stiletto and of course, gorgeous lingerie from Fleur du Mal. The name just rolls of the tongue. Now, it’s time I learn a little bit more French, just in time for Paris Fashion Week.
