louis & natalia

when your friends
stay at the ritz,
sometimes there is 
enough luck to go around.

and her family,
having kids of the same age,
and next thing you know
she's invited you to
her foundation's private
fundraiser party at
louis vuitton's boutique.

after walking up the red carpet 
behind the velvet ropes,
we were greeted personally
by Louis Vuitton CEO
with cameras-a-shooting.

we were by far the most
undistinguished and poorly
dressed ones there,
but that didn't stop us
from having a great time.
cocktails (and juice),
delicious hors d'oeurves,
beautiful cookies,
and lego tables galore.



for the girls,
guerlain makeup stations.
of course, my
independent one would
not having anyone doing
anything to her.
but "um, yeah, can i just
do that myself, please?"

playing legos
with natalia in the background.

we did have to turn down
the LV kids shoes
and fur teddy bears
they were selling,
but proceeds were going
to a noble cause.

thanks natalia, thanks louis!

What an amazing experience! I love the last pic of Milla in her adorable little coat! And you say your life is not glamorous...

So fun.. and so adorable your little girlie girl has become. I see her and wonder, would I be able to be a mom to a little girl? I'm afraid I might only be capable of raising a tom-boy.. I wonder if my mind would work any other way?... but, that discussion is for another day. :)

In the meantime, remember us little people when you are a (non-corrupt) Russian oligarch, making your rounds at all those fancy parties!
