Chic Gift Book For Your Glamest Friends

There's only about 50 shopping days left until Christmas, and with that in mind, I know most of you are keeping an eye out for princess perfect presents for all your best girlfriends. Some girls like perfume, some clothes, some cards, but a great gift book is always a smart buy. If you're in the market for a chic present, check out "This Little Piggy Went To Prada" by Amy Allen - published by Harper Collins.

This is one book that's matured right along with us (and our expensive tastes). Amy Allen takes our favorite childhood nursery rhymes and gives them a full blown makeover by changing the lines to contain clever references to our new found desires like Manolo Blahniks and Jimmy Choos. This Little Piggy contains twenty two updated nursery rhymes, as well as the original versions, all wrapped up in its hot pink jacket.

I totally envision this to be the type of book that your girlfriends keep with their fave books on top of their sleekest coffee know, the kind that their other friend's pick up out of curiousity to see what just might be in that pretty, pink book...the kind that you can all sit around and giggle about with visions of shopping sprees dancing in your heads...the kind of book that every fashionista must have in their reading repertoire.

Not only are the rhymes chic, but so are the pages themselves. Each rhyme has a custom-designed painting with fanciful watercolor designs that follow the theme of the rhyme that inspire dreams of designer shopping galore.

Lines like "This little piggy went to market" are made more upscale to read "This little piggy went to Prada." My favorite is the made-over Frere Jacques, which starts "Louis Vuitton, Louis Vuitton..." Want to hear more? Guess you'll have to check out the book for all the fun!
