Baby's First Chanel (See Jane Smile)

When I was in Paris, my boyfriend fiancé (if I must..) bought me my first Chanel item, aside from perfume and makeup.  It was an eventful day for me and the stars must have been aligned.  Also, the cost of Chanel products is cheaper in France and with the VAT you get back, it turns out to be a much better deal than if you would have purchased it in the states.  I have no pictures of the the ballet flats yet, but I think the display of the box is almost as impressive as the shoes themselves.



Have a great weekend.
