Summer is a-coming (as my friend Charles Gillman would cheekily say with his darling British accent), and between the detox diet and sundress purchases I wonder who has forgotton the accessories! Not to worry, Prête-Moi Paris will be giving some away, so you could win one instead of spending extra cash!
This Summer, there are a few little luxuries that would be the perfect addition to our (and your) fun filled wardrobe.
At the top of our summer accessory list is the new Kasia Dietz bag! Prête-Moi Paris is a HUGE fan to say the least of this oh-so-Parisian brand of tote bags and accessories. And guess what… Kasia holds bag painting classes in Paris where you can create your own hand-painted tote. She is even referenced on trip advisor! Anything new from Kasia is instantly on my radar. I love her penchant for that Parisian style and her ability to create such aesthetically eye catching bags. It’s wearable art! These « Pop Art » bags have been so popular, that they sold out and Kasia had to design a second one. How can you not love the fun and fresh colors of this new printed tote? I want it for my sunny August vacation! I bet you do to…
Well one of you lucky participants could win it. Here’s how :
1. Follow Kasia Dietz on Instagram
2. Post an instagram of an outfit to wear with either of these two Pop Art Bags and tag @PreteMoiParis @KasiaInParis #SoKasiaDietz so we can count your follow.
3. sign up for Prête-Moi Paris via email (or sign up a friend and tell us who they are in a comment below).

Our next summer accessory is the perfect thing to tote around in your Kasia Dietz bag. We have discovered the fun and frilly little ipad cases by The Snugg. Accessories for your tablets and smartphones, The Snugg understands that functional needs to fit with fashionable in today’s world where all those geek gadgets are so trendy they are starting to become part of runway shows (i.e. Cara Delevigne for Burberry). We have been testing out a Snugg mini ipad case for many weeks, and love it. It allows for a very easy grip, comfortable table top resting, and on-the-go pockets so you can just head out with your ipad case in your tote bag and voilà! You are instantly care-free and chic without the weight of a heavy handbag. There are slots for credit cards and cash, and even a pen! (In case you want to write a post card from Paris!). No need to bring anything else with you.
Made out of « PU leather » (faux leather) so it’s sturdy and you don’t have to worry about stains. I love it, it’s fun and functional and perfect for long lazy summer stints on Paris café terraces….. Aaaaah! We haven’t set up a giveaway yet, but you can still follow The Snugg on Instagram! Like them, follow them and tag them and hopefully we’ll get to offer one here soon… Stay tuned.
And lastly, a gorgeous wrist accessory that I love from Jord Wood Watches. Created and designed in the USA (back to my roots), and made with sustainable wood sources from around the world, these watches are more than just a time telling object, they are an accessory with a message : one of supporting ecological practices and taking care of our Earth (as in not cutting down her beautiful forests). We like. In addition to all that feel-good stuff, there is also the « feel » of the watch, it’s smooth lightweight and comfortable, and is something you can take care of with natural products found in the home (olive oil and lemon juice!). Yaaay DIY! You hardly feel it on your wrist, but everyone can’t stop noticing it. I get constant compliments on mine! And I find this pretty little item the perfect Summer accessory because of its natural coloring, its natural composition, and its lightweight character. It will go so well with a pair of espadrilles I have been lusting after…
Want to win one of these beauties!?! Here’s how :
1. Follow Jord watches on Instagram
2. Instagram your wrist sans (without) watch and post with « @PreteMoiParis @woodwatches_com I want a #jordwatch! » in an so we can count your follow.
