Fashion Week Giveaway: Inspiration for the Entire Year!

fashion week giveaway

I am so excited for the latest giveaway on La Dolce Vita! In honor of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week beginning today in New York, I will be giving away some of my fashion faves that are sure to provide you with tons of inspiration well beyond Fashion Week.

rachel zoe

First up, Style A to Zoe by everyone’s favorite stylist, Rachel Zoe. I simply adore Rachel’s fabulous, over-the-top style and can’t get enough of her and her cute assistant, Brad. The book offers great insight into Rachel’s style philosophy and is filled to the brim with fantastic tips for every fashionista.

sartorialist

Next, the winner will also receive a copy of The Sartorialist by Scott Schuman, founder of the wildly popular blog of the same name. If you’re looking for inspiration or need ideas on how to mix up some of your wardrobe staples, this book will not disappoint. The photography is vibrant and gorgeous, just like the fashion. Two of my own favorite fashionistas, socialite, Olivia Palermo and Italian Vogue Fashion Editor, Viviana Volpicella are both featured in the book.

 valentino

Finally, I will also include a DVD of the fascinating documentary, Valentino: The Last Emperor to round out the trio of fashion goodies. The film offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the life of a fashion legend as his career comes to a close. Trust me, it is completely engrossing, moving, and downright hilarious at times.
