Although the time has come to Christmas shop, you need neither drop...nor drop the gift-giving ball by gifting the wrong thing. Yes, fashionistas (and fashionistos) are a picky, persnickety bunch, butIf you can't go to Paris for a spot of #crossitoffyourlist shopping, bring Parisian chic to you via Carnet de mode. Their team of trendspotters has an enviable eye and they even put their money on it, helping crowdfund up-and-come'rs in the fashion biz.
Two really juicy gift options they offer include monogramming - everything from a gorgeous tote to an iPad case to a silk tie - and their Fashion Box, a surprise package filled with fashion goodies that can be purchased as a one-off or in 3 and 6 month subscriptions.
Shipping to get it there by Christmas obviously closes pretty soon - so better get clicking! - but their offer of free shipping is good through December 31st.
