Back to NYC and back to reality! One of the highlights of the trip was meeting the author of Dreaming of Chanel, Charlotte Smith. In her book, she writes about the priceless inheritance of a vintage clothing collection every girl dreams of. From Chanel to Vivienne Westwood and Valentino, she captures the gorgeous dresses and the stories behind the fabulous women that wore them. It was hard not to be in awe of her as we all intently listened to her stories.
