Grab of the Week: an illustrated set of fashion-inspired holiday cards

Three French hens decked out in Chanel, four fashion bloggers sitting in front row, five Gucci handbags and a Prada-clad model in a pear tree. Wondering what the heck we’re talking about? We’re singing “The Twelve Days of Christmas” with a fashion spin! But we can’t take the credit for the lyrics: we got them from Toronto-based illustrator Monica Smiley of Eighty Seventh ST.’s fashion-inspired holiday greeting cards.

Her limited edition box set, “Twelve Days of Fashion,” has suddenly got us all pumped up for the holidays and excitedly writing out greeting cards to every glam person we know and love. All together now: “on the first day of Christmas my true love sent to me…”

Twelve Days of Fashion, limited edition box set by Eighty Seventh ST., $30.
