Magical Fashionista Book Giveaway

Metaphysical author, Tess Whitehurst, recently contacted me to let me know how much she enjoyed Lessons from Madame Chic. I was tickled to hear from her because I've really enjoyed her insights on feng shui in her books, Magical Housekeeping and The Good Energy Book. Tess recently came out with Magical Fashionista: Dress for the Life You Want and she was kind enough to offer to give away one signed book to a reader of the Daily Connoisseur.

Drawing on astrology, feng shui and psychology, this mystical guide shows how fashion with intention can be a powerful and life-affirming practice. Now I must mention that this is not a traditional style guide in any sense of the word. It discusses moon signs, horoscopes, rituals, fashion spells, crystals and mystical concepts of that nature and relates them all to fashion (which is why I thought this would be a perfect giveaway for the month of October!).

So while some of the concepts in this book aren't for everyone, if you are interested in metaphysics, you'll certainly gleam joy and insight from it. I also find that this book is substantial enough that you can easily absorb what interests you (I'm a cancer and really enjoyed reading about how fashion relates to my water sign) and leave what doesn't pertain to your lifestyle or beliefs.

Here is what Publishers Weekly had to say about Magical Fashionista:

"In this satisfying and unusual style guide...Whitehurst examines the metaphysics of fashion and its potential as a personal art project...Though Whitehurst instructs readers to "stand like a celebrity" and "walk like a supermodel," it's obvious that readers are meant to think of themselves on the same playing field, not as inferior beings...sure to be welcomed by the open-minded fashion lover."

This giveaway is open to US residents only. Please enter via rafflecopter below. I will announce the winner on the rafflecopter widget one week from today. Good luck!

Thank you for the terrific give-away! If I had to describe my style of dressing I would have to say that I like to wear clothing that isn't trendy, just classic/timeless.

I like to take a style icon and ask myself: Would Audrey wear this? Would Zooey wear this? Would Duchess Kate wear this? My icons rotate, but it's something to aspire to.

ANETTE- I do not set the guidelines for the giveaways. The guidelines are set by the company (or in this case publishers) who are hosting the giveaway. I always ask if the giveaway is open worldwide and they usually say US (or sometimes US and Canada) only.

My fashion philosophy is confused right now. I have a new home in a new state and a new smaller body. My old clothes just aren't me anymore and I'm not sure where to go from here.

Amanda Mihin said...

I won't wear it unless *I* think I look good in it, no matter what anyone else thinks! :)
