I was so excited to get the 'new' shabby chic book. I ordered it on line, tracked it for a week and then waited till the moment was right to sit in my overstuffed white chair and dig in. Boy was I disappointed. The book was basically a tribute to the 'stars' who buy out Shabby chic because its in. Page after page of shots from J-Lo's restaurant to Pamela Andersons sons bday party. NOTHING chic about these people. Very sorry I bought the book...
