My Paris perfect apartment

My Paris perfect apartment

My Paris perfect apartment was located in the Avenue de La Bourdonnais. Uber left me in front of the door. I stopped for a while and looked up. Having an apartment with a view of the Eiffel Tower wasn’t anymore one more part of my unlimited imagination but it was about to become my daily reality.

For a moment, all the apartments I have lived in in the past unfolded in front of my eyes and I caught myself reflecting on “how far I‘ve gone”. I snapped a picture to freeze the moment with a little hope that this moment will last forever.

The lift, one of those old ones, brought me to the fifth floor. After I opened the door, it took me some time to realize what is happening. My Chambertin apartment blew me away, from the moment I stepped in till now as I write this post. I called a friend of mine and asked “what’s happening and where all this is going?

The days that followed were as dreamy as my Paris Perfect Aparment: every morning breakfast at the balcony, hot evening baths, encounters with endearing Parisian people, a dazzling Chanel fashion show and in the background a bling bling Eiffel Tower hypnotizing me every night on the Avenue de la Bourdonnais.

One thing is sure: I must be lucky. Attending the Chanel fashion show which took place at the Grand Palais on the 8th of March and sitting in front row only you must have a kind of good luck, I guess.

I was sure the CHANEL runway show would be special, therefore I booked a last minute flight ticket and landed in Paris a few days before the show. It was my first CHANEL fashion show in Paris. I hope that more similar occasions will bring me back to Paris. Even if I have to look for a last minute flight ticket desperately.

CHANEL- Front row only

I saw the runway through my Canon lenses. Models such as Kendall Jenner, Gigi Hadid, Soo Joo Park among 91 others walked in front of my lenses wearing pink tweed suits, bowler hats, leather boots, biker gloves and CHANEL pearls.

Also, I stumbled upon Pharrell Williams, Willow Smith and Grace Coddington. And I met a girl, I’ve been dreaming to meet, Nicole Warne from Gary Pepper Girl.

I loved taking photos of the venue before and after the show. white carpets, beige walls, golden chairs, mirrors everywhere, a very impressive glass ceiling above us. Plus, the perfect light for photography.

The Quilted Eye Makeup 

The make up was also impressive. The quilted eye makeup was inspired by the CHANEL iconic leather bag. How mind-blowing. Now I need to find a way to do that on my eyes too : )

Unique Paris experience. Kendall Jenner in front of my lenses.

The CHANEL fashion show was mesmerising. And here, on The Viennese Girl blog, we only live for this kind of moments… Remember what I wrote at the beginning..I was lucky! Very lucky!

Getting invited to a CHANEL fashion show in Paris is a privilege for only a few selected people. How did I end up here? Believe in your dreams. And work. One day you will see them come true.

Back to Paris.

For five nights and six wonderful days. I was planning to visit Paris, because this is what I always do for my birthday every March.

But an invitation to attend the CHANEL fashion show had me booking flight tickets and looking for hotel a little bit earlier than I have planned.

It was my fourth visit to the city of lights. All the boulevards and cafes are now so familiar to me that I feel like I am not a tourist anymore (although I still need to look at the map now and then).

If things turn out the way I wish, I will be visitingmore often the city that inspires me the most. It might even sound weird but it’s true.

Paris started becoming my second home. A place where I always meet the nicest people and never feel alone.
