While we were reading her book we were like…REALLY? Yes, Grace Coddington, A Memoir, amazed us. Every time we saw her during fashion weeks we never thought even for a second that this woman was so cool and awesome in her early ages. When Vogue Creative Director Grace Coddington started her modeling career, it was the beginning of her epic & fabulous life in the fashion insudstry.
HE strikes again. Who? The Sartorialist, of course! If few years we thought he is an arrogant guy, too full of himself, things stay different now. The reality is that he is a funny guy with whom is a pleasure to spend your time. Besides this…He has a new book, ladies. X. He spend the last years capturing street style in all fashion capitals, but now thanks to his desire to discover the whole world, we can see more in his book – different cultures from over the world. From Dubai to Kiev, Mumbai, Peru or India, the photos from The Sartorialist – X are full of color, life, patterns and shapes. It’s a pleasure to keep your eyes on every page.
We are NastyGal clients for years and we had no idea about who is the HEAD of this website. It’s a #GIRLBOSS called Sophie Amoruso. If you feel you have no purpose in life, that you experience a lack of motivation, that you need to reboot your system of values and expectations, read this book. It’s a pleasure to read it and each page will make you understand how important is to believe in yourself, in your dreams and how important it is to keep your values intact. If she did it. You can do it too! Enjoy it! “#Girlboss is a movement… Sophia encourages us to own the qualities we’ve previously been ashamed of…in order to become the masters of our own destiny, financially independent and radically ourselves. I’m so in.”
Still waiting for it to arrive. We are still tracking it. But soon it will be on our night table. We were all expecting this moment. Garance Dore is one of the most authentic women from the fashion field and now she shares with us little tricks about style obviously, shopping, make up, fashion weeks and high heels, but also about how to (try to) be a beautiful woman inside and outside. At least is what we’ve heard about it 😛 ! LOVE STYLE LIFE! JUST ORDER IT! IT should be in your bookcase if you are a fashion addict!
Irreverent. By Carine Roitfeld. A 368 page book with all the coolest photos collected over her 30 year career in fashion. If you need inspiration this is your escape. “Carine, and her vision of French Vogue, embodies all that the world likes to think of as Parisian style: a sense of chic that’s impeccable and sometimes idiosyncratic and which forever lives on a moonlit street as seen through the lens of Helmut Newton.“–Anna Wintour
Queen of Fashion, this is how they called her. Elsa Schiaparelli advised women to ‘Dare & be different’ and was herself a revolution through her style. Elsa Schiaparelli – A Biography is the story about one of the most fabulous fashion designers, perhaps the most extraordinary fashion designer of the twentieth century, in her day more famous than Chanel.
We adored the movie documentary, so the book needed to be ordered. Ari Seth Cohen payed attention to stylish women and because his blog, Advanced Style, was a real success, he decided to collect all the images of all the women he photographed in one book. The blog features older women, in their 60s, 70s, 80s and even 90s, in their fabulous outfits and so does the book. The (mostly) ladies of Advanced Style are enjoying their later years with grace and panache, marching to the beat of their own drummer. These timeless images and words of wisdom provide fashion inspiration for all ages and prove that age is nothing but a state of mind
If you’d ask us, this woman is a real inspiration and we prefer her and her story instead of the so popular Coco Chanel’s story/book. She was unique and no matter how many human replicas will exist, trying to copy her hairstyle, her smoking habit, her couch, her style and bold attitude, there’s no one to be what Diana Vreeland used to be. Why? Because she was a fashion icon like you never met before. Back to the book, Empress of fashion, Diana Vreeland, is the story of the iconic fashion editor as you’ve never seen her before. From Haper’s Bazaar and Vogue, to Costume Institute at the the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Vreeland had an enormous impact on the fashion world and left a legacy so enduring that must-have style guides still quote her often wild and always relevant fashion pronouncements. And is a must to read this woman’s story!
“While some people use books and others movies or television or music to escape real life, or to reward themselves. For as long as I could remember, I had used shoes.” How not to love her!? She is so funny and cool, how not to read her book and blog. Man Repeller – Leandra Medine, is already an internet star so she had to conquer the bookshelves too. Seeking Love. Finding Overalls. is ‘A classic love story of a girl and her clothes, Leandra Medine’s MAN REPELLER is as funny, smart, and adorable as she is.” –Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author. Just read it and discover the stories behind this pretty face!
