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.
