Meeting at Chanel's from Ashley


The clock has struck NOON in Paris and we meet Ashley at Coco Chanel's Flat.

Chanel's apartment is filled with visible perfections — crystal chandeliers, gleaming mirrors, pairs of gilded Chinese horses, an ancient Russian icon from her friend Igor Stravinsky, a golden hand her friend Alberto Giacometti sculpted for her, and a shaft of wheat painted by her friend Salvador Dali.

Paris conjures images of the the view atop the Eiffel Tower, macaroons from Ladurée, Coco Chanel and her fabulous designs at 31 Rue Cambon. Ah, Chanel. Chanel's apartment is a four floor wonderland. The first floor houses the boutique, the next floor is the haute couture dressing rooms, the third floor was her apartment, and the final floor her workshop. To learn more about Chanel's apartment, read this post from NPR.

See you at 31 Rue Cambon!

  7. Love Chanel's dictum of looking in the mirror before one leaves home and removing one thing from one's outfit. 'Less is more'.
