|Chic Reads Wednesdays|
so this month I will be reading The Beautiful Fall, a tale of an explosion of Parisian fashion in the 1970's and the beginning of an evolutionary feud between two gentlemen known as Karl Lagerfeld and Ives Saint Laurent. So lets get to it, here is how it will go down, we have a month to read the book, you can then post your thoughts on twitter with hashtags #chicreadswednesdays and #thebeautifulfall and tag me @chicstreetsande or leave a comment on my Facebook page here once you have finished. On the second Tuesday of the following month I will select a few thoughts/comments to put up on the blog along with my review of the book. To start things the proper way, I will select one of you who leave me a thought or comment to receive a gift card for Barnes and Nobles. Don't let me be the only one reading the book, please join, please (pleading like a child pleads for a toy).
if in case my photos leave you with a big question mark, here is the reference...those are my vintage YSL shoes, which can be interpreted as Yves himself and my white blouse and bow tie pay homage to Karl. The first two express the feud between the two designers and the last three can show you that shoes can make for fancy Karl-like sunglasses...that's all folks.
