A very fashionable Valentine’s gift idea

Valentine’s day is fast approaching and judging by the opinion of most of my girlfriends, none ofIMG_0387 them want a predictable gift, like a box of chocolates or red roses bouquet, so what about surprising your wife, girlfriend or daughter ( if she old enough to be interested in fashion ) by a fashionable fairy-tale book with drawings by Manolo Blahnik?

Last year Camilla Morton, a London based fashion writer and author came up with the a great idea to give familiar fairy-tales a fashionable twist, by collaborating with famous names like Christian Lacroix ( The tale of sleeping beauty )  and Manolo Blahnik, with many more to come in the future, I am sure.

I loved ‘Manolo Blahnik and the tale of the elves & the shoemaker’( part fashion fairy tale, part memoir ) and so did the daughters of my girlfriends, aged eight and ten, so give it a go, surprise the lady in your life with something from Manolo Blahnik without a steep price tag-and I bet you that this present will make your loved one smile at the very least and will definitely make her appreciate the thought that went into choosing this gift-it might also score you some fashionable points too!

p.s the book is available for purchase from:
