MY RATING: ★★★★☆ ( 4/ 5)
📖 WHERE DID I GOT THIS ONE?
I got hold of this amazing book a couple of months ago while thrift shopping and scored it with only 2(!)€. Original price on the book was 21.99$. So it was quite a bargain!
If you are a bookworm like me and most of your money goes on books I definitely recommend checking out thrift shops because you might find some amazing ones out there.
📖 WHAT IS THIS BOOK ABOUT?
Fashion journalist and critic Nina Garcia has collected into this book one hundred items that every stylish woman should own. Items are listed alphabetically and are easy to read. Every item description also contains some interesting facts which give some new information about history of fashion world. She also gives the reader a price range and cheaper options of different items.
Colourful illustrations in the book are made by talented Ruben Toledo and give a funky twist to every item throughout the entire book.
📖 MY OPINION?
I have to say that I really- really loved this book even though I usually prefer self- improvement literature. Maybe it is because of my love for fashion and nice clothes! It was such an easy read and very inspiring. I loved how Nina Garcia mentioned in authors note that readers should take this book as a guide to find items that suit their style not the end- all- be- all.
The rating 4 stars out of 5 is because some of the items in the book were actually not so classical and already out of fashion but all in all it was a good read with a lot of good information.
This book definetly changed my point of view on clothes and on my style in general. After finishing it I even re- organized and decluttered my wardrobe. I also made a shopping list to avoid future shopping accidents (aka. buying what I do not need and probably never wear).
Some examples for you from my shopping list:
Time to summarize this little blog post! I really recommend this book for you who you are interested in fashion, style or just want to get inspiration to re- organize your wardrobe. Interesting, inspiring and easy to read!
