Freebie Monday: Stylish Books from Neiman Marcus


Ok, contest time! I have so many things piled up here that I’m trying to decide how to sort it all out. For today let’s start with some coffee-table books, courtesy of Neiman Marcus. The first offering is InStyle Parties, which might just inspire you to finally host that girl’s brunch or to at least to gussy up your impromptu BBQ. The second is The Fashion Questionnaire, a simply presented tome that reveals the design inspirations of designers including Thom Browne, Alber Elbaz of Lanvin, and Karl Lagerfeld. And we’ll throw in a sample of La Mer serum we snagged on a recent visit.

In the spirit of each of these books, tell us either:
1) Your favorite party trick (quick and easy appetizer, drink idea, cheap decor idea), or
2) Your fashion motto (it’s one of the questions in The Fashion Questionnaire)

Since I think we’d all enjoy reading the answers, leave your answer in the comments (be sure to use your real email so that I can get in touch with you!). If you’d rather, go ahead and email me at Rachel [at] The winner will be chosen at the end of the day today.

Happy entering!

Oh, and speaking of Neiman Marcus (and probably more free swag…), the Chevy Chase outpost is hosting a Jason Wu Fall Collection preview tomorrow evening from 5 – 7:30. The designer won’t be there unfortunately, but the director of sales will. Everyone gets a sketch of a gown Wu designed for Katie Holmes!
