Badaboum, Badabim…. Went shopping for girl scout trousers at The Gap yesterday afternoon. Kept my eyes open for new stores to write about. Spotted the garish floral arrangement that signals a party is brewing in Beijing. It had to be a French party from the multiple pictures of Gay Pareee and the Eiffel tower images on the wall. I was in Park View Green the « soon-to-be-opened-biggest-luxuriest-latest-can’tmiss-OMG! » mall. So I introduced myself. Yes, it was indeed a store opening for a luxury (call me shocked) brand of accessories – quite beautiful actually. I was now invited. So I went home, gathered a friend and returned later on. Then we met another friend* who slipped us THE carton to have that night. So cool I had no idea it was even going on. Mmm.

« So much fun! » assured our friend*…. « You must come. »

– Indeed. We promptly headed back home, changed quicker than Houdini and soon were off heading into the freezing night to Sanlitun Village.

She was right.

What fun!

The scarves on the ceiling were just beautiful. It was amazing! (and I am not a gusher)

Turns out I was probably NOT supposed to take so many pictures. 268 images later a very polite guard asked me to pack my camera, I did. (I mean, I am not greedy and I had so much fun!)

*notice how I am cleverly preserving her identity. Party source will always be protected. Keep that in mind if you are in Beijing and want to invite me… 😉 Or simply tell me where and when. I’ll manage the rest.

I was so pleased to see an outfit by EVENING! (you looked great!)

I even got quite a few Belle du Jour. I think she is my favorite though. P1020432

I have taken many pictures of this amazing Fearless girl. Not once did she did not look this amazing! Dita von Beijing!

Quelle Belle Soirée!

Alors comme ça hier je me promenais tranquillement dans le Mall du « futur-de-la-mort-qui-tue-qu’il-va-être-encore-mieux-mieux-que-les-300-autres-malls-de-luxe de Pékin quand j’ai repéré du coin de l’oeil la couronne mortuaire qui en Chine annonce une belle fête. La couronne était posée prés d’un mur couvert de photos de la tour Eiffel, de Montmartre, des quais, bref curieuse je me suis présentée. Une (trés) belle marque d’accessoires en croco et autres animaux destinés à devenir des sacs allait effectivement ouvrir le soir même. Nous sommes entre amis, hop, je me retrouve conviée. Je retourne le soir même avec une amie, et hop, nous tombons sur une autre amie (anonyme*), qui nous dit « Venez ce soir à la Fête Hermès c’est trop drôle! Vous allez adorer!!! »

Moi – « Voui, mais comment? »

Elle: « Voici le carton »

Moi: « merci »

Retour maison, changement de tenue plus rapide que Flash Gordon, et hop direction Sanlitun. Elle avait raison. On a bien rigolé.

Merci

Vraiment. Merci. P1020449 P1020466

I think the lovely sitting guy below was these three’s Belles boyfriend. I think. He probably gets a group discount at Chanel as they all three sported practically the same bag. Je pense que les trois Belles du Jour ci-dessus sont les copines du mec assis plus bas. Il doit avoir un prix de gros chez Chanel, elles avaient toutes les trois un sac!

The decal tattoo parlor was a blast. Les décalcomanis Hermès etaient tres drôles aussi!

Allez, cette fois c’est vraiment fini.

What fun!

Thank you Hermès!
