It just occurred to me that while I love fashion books, the majority of the ones I have feature Caucasian women - the first ones which came to mind were the "What not to wear" series.

I'd love to read such a book featuring an African-American woman instead. Please enter me into the giveaway as well.

Hi Susan,

I would love to win "Mrs. O." I would like to have it because "Mrs. O" is special. She is going to be in the American History books as the first African American First Lady. I love to look at what she wears. She always looks pretty and comfortable in what she chooses to wear. She is a good mother, good wife and a friend to the American community. She's awfully intelligent too.

My friend loves Michelle Obama so this would make a great Christmas gift for her.

However (lol), It would be very difficult to part with such a beautifully made book. I think I'll have to keep it for myself and buy one for my friend. This would compliment any bookshelf and personal library so just hope I'm one of the lucky winners.
