    Can't think of any, but I also read Deluxe- How Luxury Lost Its Luster and I really liked it! Definitely a good read.

    How was Bringing Home the Birkin? I've been thinking of picking that one up...
    Now on a BAN!

    You should definitely read that book! I LOVED it! It was so funny. I don't usually zip through most books but this one took me less than a week on and off to read. I bet if I had begun it on Friday night; I would have finished it Saturday night . I wrote a quick email telling the author how much I loved his book and he actually sent me an email back by the next day! M. Tonello is a nice guy.

    Oh, I almost forgot. I received a great book entitled American Fashion Accessories by Candy Pratts Price for Christmas from my DH's Aunt and Uncle. That's yet another nice book to look through.

    .. and for the kids, "This Little Piggy Went To Prada". My little niece loves that book.


    72 pages filled with a twist on our favorite classics re-written by Amy Allen plus fantastic colorful illustrations by Eun-Kyung Kang.


    "This little piggy went to Prada,
    This little piggy went to Cannes,
    This little piggy dined at Nobu,
    And this little piggy, Hakkasan.
    And this little piggy went 'Wee wee wee wee!'
    All the way home because she had a fat bottom!"


    (to the tune of Frère Jacques)
    "Louis Vuitton, Louis Vuitton,
    Mulberry, Mulberry?
    Nappy bag dilemma – Lulu, Kate or Anya?
    Shopping spree, buy all three."


    "There was a young woman who lived in her Choos,
    Though she once had a house in a smart Chelsea Mews.
    So much on Jimmy,
    The house had to go,
    And with it, her Amex and husband in tow!"
