Summer Reading: Fashion and Style
Although the googlenet has made reading flippy square things made of paper completely unnecessary, I have managed to (mostly) finish a few books this summer. Admittedly, some were re-reads and they’re all in the fashion/style category, but I feel like that’s valid because at least now I can claim “it’s for work.”
Honestly, this book intrigued me, stressed me out, and scared the crap out of me all at the same time. But in a good way.
This book was written by local fashion lovers, and they attempt to answer the top 90(!) style-related questions people ask.
Ms. Vreeland was quite a character! At once amusingly charming and frustratingly oblivious, her memoir is a must-read for the notable quotes alone.
I hadn’t read this since college, but Michelle Lee’s in-depth look at the world of fashion consumerism is still a thought-provoking read.
Because peeking into the closets and minds of some of the most stylish folks in the world ain’t never hurt nobody.
Read up, darlings! There will be a test next week.
