giveaway: parisian chic

It's time for my first giveaway, a brand new copy of

Parisian Chic: A Style Guide 
by Ines de la Fressange with Sophie Gachet

This book has been lying on my coffee table for some time and I find myself picking it up almost daily just to read a few pages. It leaves me smiling every time, often laughing (especially the Fashion Faux Pas! section). The layout is fashionably cute, mostly short notes, drawings, photos and links. Most importantly, it's all about Paris.

This isn't a book with endless pages on how you should dress or do your make-up; in a simple way it gives you the basics and what to avoid. There are a few gorgeous photographes of Ines's daughter, Nine d'Urso, taken by Benoît Peverelli. The book touches on many subjects and is sort of a fun guide to Paris. If you are as crazy about Paris as I am then you'll enjoy it.

Anyone can enter the giveaway and here is how:
  1. Simply follow LatteLisa via Google Friend Connect (see right sidebar)
  2. Leave a comment below this post (if you don't have a blog then please make sure that I have your email address).

The last day to enter the giveaway is 30 June 2011. The winner will be announced Friday 1 July.

Good luck!
