This seems to be the "It Book" right now. The author Garance Dore has a fantastic blog I adore. I have seen so many recommendations from various sources. I just picked this one up and is eager to dig in.
I love this book! I have read this book more than three times. This book has helped me define my style, and not to be a pray of trend. Not that I love rules, but some principles could really help one find her/his true personal style. Every time I read this book, I find something new. And now it's a good time to re-read this one. Plus, I love the illustrations in this book! And a few other books by Nina Garcia that I have read and loves:
- The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own
- Nina Garcia's Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion
I first read this book when I was still a student. It was a required reading for one of the classes. I liked it but nothing more. Now that I am doing design myself, I started to realize how insightful this book was. I will read it agin.
I own the set and she is on book 4. It took me long enough to get through the first three. I have watched all 5 seasons of shows but the wait for a new season is agonizing... I heard the book and show diverged a bit towards the end of last season, so I'm going to find out.
My dear readers, what are your beach reads? Do you have any other recommendations?
