I’m super excited that I have a lovely little giveaway for you guys today! Keep on reading to find out how you can win the notebook set + pen pictured above!

When one of your favorite fashion blogs collaborates with one of your favorite paper companies, you do a happy dance and thank your lucky stars. I was thrilled when I heard that Garance Doré and Rifle Paper Co. would be collaborating on a stationery collection. To celebrate the launch of the new line, there was an Open Studio here in NYC last Friday and Saturday.

Not only could you purchase merchandise from the new collection (along with other Rifle Paper Co. products), there were also several different fun activities. In one area you could write and send a letter to a loved one. Calligrapher Nicolas Ouchenir was also present to jot down notes in his beautiful handwriting. When it was my turn, I just asked him to write down my name and I have to say, it’s never looked prettier.

This is completely unlike me, but at one point we were close to each other and made eye contact, so I stuck out my hand and introduced myself! I was totally fangirling– she was every bit as chic as I imagined her to be and also so gracious when I gushed about how much I love her blog and her stationery collection.

I’d never tried Jack’s before but you can consider me a fan now. The coffee was rich and flavorful and just what I needed to combat the rainy chill outside.

They were live-streaming the chat on Google+ at the time, but you can now watch the video online here (along with the video of the conversation between Garance and Anna Bond that took place the previous day).
