Day three in Paris started my favorite way:  at an art museum. We headed out to visit the Musée de l’Orangerie  too see The Water Lilies exhibit by Claude Monet. The paintings were definitely bigger than I expected, some took up the whole side of the oval shaped room.  We walked through the rest of the museum and made our way to the cafe for a blueberry muffin and some coffee— Ive been in Europe about 2 months and have still have yet to master the perfect coffee combo for me here.. Maybe I will soon.. maybe never.  Before leaving I was super interested in buying a book, but then I remembered they were all in French when I went to go read one, so I settled for some post cards. 


Day three ended with a night walk to the Eiffel Tower.  I am grateful for the crepes, new friends and good taste in music.

After the museum we decided to walk down the Rue Cambon to see Chanel’s original store. We even got to see the famous steps! It honestly was a dream to see where her first official fashion house was. It is amazing how just so much history can come from one little place. 

My favorite thing of the day had to be the Dior exhibit Coututier du rêve (couture of dream).  As a designer, being able to seeing everything from inspiration to sketch to design is an experience like no other. Especially when it is Dior. I know I spent way too long taking every second in when I found my friends waiting outside the exhibit for me. Besides getting the whole run down from concept to product, my favorite room was the last room you would head to before leaving the exhibit. The lighting had everything literally glowing like magic, It was a dream.
