La Mom Giveaway: Which Side Are You On?

Rive Droite ou Rive Gauche? 

In Paris, the answer says as much about you as your choice of handbag.

So it’s no wonder that ex-New Yorker turned Parisienne Kasia Dietz created a line of totes that eliminates all the guesswork. 

Declare your allegiance with one of her signature Rive Droite/Rive Gauche bags, or go the subtle route with her Paris postal code totes. 

And don't miss her collection of wearable art made with her mother's signature 70's block prints -- oh so chic for summer whether you're in Paris, France or Versailles, Kentucky. 

Tell La Mom which side you're on and why for the chance to win a Rive Droite or Rive Gauche tote! The most creative answer will receive a bag plus the answer published on La Mom's blog. 

Send your answer to lamom.paris@gmail.com by July 20th!

Kasia is also extending a special offer to La Mom readers: 30% off the entire collection until July 20th! Be sure to include the code: La Mom Promo on www.kasiadietz.com. Send your selection to orders@kasiadietz.com and she will let you know the discounted price. 

Get to know Kasia better in this video by United States of Paris. A gorgeous fashion designer living in Paris? As the French say, pffffft. (Insert Gallic shrug here). Some girls have all the luck.

No idea to what Rive Droite and Rive Gauche are referring. Guess I don't need a bag! :)

I love Kasia's designs! I have one of her non-printed bags but I've had my eye on the Rive Droite bag for a while now. Why? Who isn't a fan of the Canal St. Martin? The Marais? Buttes Chaumont? Belleville? Oberkampf? These are all my favorite places - lively, multi-cultural and full of good eats!

I am 100% Rive Droite !

Net said...

But do I have to choose?? And I do need a bag because you can never have too many bags.

TN said...

Rive Droite! That's where I live...

And I need some bags...they seem to disappear on me

Tres Chic.
Hmmm having only been to Paris twice, but longing so much to go back. It is probably a cliche, but I have to say Rive Gauche. Fitzgerald is my favourite autor and to walk the street he walked in when writing about "posh" Paris, might give me a kick in the butt to start writing "the novel" myself.
I would LOVE to own a bag and will use it to tease my lovely french friend which I am sure does not have one!

Laurel said...

Rive Gauche Bien Sur! Why? Just because it sounds so; well French :)
J'adore Paris!

Melissa (PreteMoiParis) said...

The video is perfect! Kasia you are so charming! Fabulous post on a great designer/artist and person!!!

paris (im)perfect said...

I am most definitely Rive Droite and would love to show off my Right-Bank pride with a lovely Kasia Dietz design!

Joy said...

Rive Gauche all the way! We (Duke) have a semester study abroad program there in the 6th. (Rue Saint-André des Arts)

Naperville Now said...

Rive Gauche, so it will match my heart and my perfume. (jk -- have no idea what the fragrance is like. I'm a Coco girl, actually.)

Carole said...

Rive Gauche: where I lost my Paris virginity. (Too gauche? :D)

Susan Lindquist said...

Here in conservative New Hampshire, I'm on The Left (a la gauche) just to piss people off and keep them wondering when I smile and do something nice for them. However, I live East (by the map ... a la droite). WTF?

Anonymous said...

Making someone take "sides" in Paris? Oh Mon Dieu! C'est pas possible! Both sides of the river are in Paris and that means both sides are perfection.

Happy Bastille Day! Vive la France!

I'm a Rive Droite girl. Because that's where I left my heart in January...

(Love that photo of Kasia!)

Elisa @ Globetrotting in Heels said...

I have never been to Paris, but to my knowledge this is like picking between uptown and downtown NYC, or more specifically: the Village or the Upper East Side?

I am much more studs and boxo maxi dresses than Birkins and pearls, so I'm going to go with Rive Gauche :-)

Sarah Towle said...

I'll take one of each!

Beadboard UpCountry said...

Love both! The apartemet I stay in is on Rive Gauche, but then again the Marais is on Rive Droite.St Germain which I love,Gauche... I think I am Rive Drauche!!!!!!!!!(that could be another bag!)My alligiance lies wherever I can get a good bottle of wine, frites, steak hache, escargots, cheese and fois gras.Love the idea!Maryannexo

angeli said...

The Rive Droite of course... There's nothing better than people watching at Cafe Angelina on the Rue de Rivoli whilst indulging in a cup of their decadently divine Chocolat l'Africain.

TN said...

And the winner is????? ;-)

ABACAXI and HORTELÂ said...

Rive droite... in Versailles :))
Love strolling through le Marais, wondering around the Palais Royal & les Grands Boulevards, yes, I have to admit that I also like the 'chique' of the Rive Droite... Honoust enough??
Lovely bag idea by the way!!
Bisous from Versailles, Chantal

@TN The winner will be announced on tomorrow's Frenchy Friday -- stay tuned! And mille mercis for all the fantastic entries!

Diana said...

To be honest, I have no idea... it has been a long time since I have been to Paris! I must say that I really love the bag idea and I am a fan of French Designer Kasia Dietz!
