A few years ago I bought beautiful pink umbrella from Chantal Thomass in Paris...literally. She was there, in person. It was such a pleasure to meet Chantal Thomass, one of my personal idols. I have always wanted to be a lingerie designer and was so excited that she was actually visiting her shop in Paris that day. I bought a book from her called Plumes and Dentelle's. She autographed it with a note: "French lingerie is the best."
