Ever since I met two different women on a recent cruise both named Chanel (what are the odds of that?), I have been obsessed with all things Chanel. My recent trip to New York was focused on acquiring Chanel items.

I love almost everything about New York City, and the Garment District is no exception. My favorite store has got to be Paron Fabrics.
Two doors down from Paron Fabrics is Daytona Braids and Trimming, where I found various trims to coordinate with my white boucle'.
My favorite store for notions is Steinlauf & Stoller (for some reason I don't have a picture of it). It's a great source for hard-to-find quality items like wide horsehair braid and pre-cut steel boning (as short as 4"). They had the best price on large sheets of waxed tracing paper (only $6.50 each, compared to $12 at other places). Tip: bring a cardboard tube to roll it in to keep it from getting damaged during the rest of your shopping and trip home.
