Holiday Gifts for Fashionistas: Book Edition



  Saturday, December 4, 2010 at 8:15 AM   |    Post a Comment     Tagged:,, 
Decided I should do some posts on what the fashionistas in your life could use for Christmas or whatever holiday you celebrate!  Today I'm posting some fashionable books, I haven't read all of them but I've read good things about them!  You can click the image of the book to see more information and to buy them (I was going to post about each of them, but I didn't know what to say about some of them without saying the same stuff over and over)What books would you recommend? I'll add them to the bottom of the post as people mention them!

Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady The Little Dictionary of Fashion: A Guide to Dress Sense for Every Woman Shopping for Vintage: The Definitive Guide to Vintage Fashion The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own Nina Garcia's Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty, & Everything Glamour Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste and Style (Tim Gunn's Guide to Style) Instyle the New Secrets of Style: Your Complete Guide to Dressing Your Best Every Day Big Book of Fashion Illustration: A Sourcebook of Contemporary Illustration (New Illustration Series) The Fashion Designer Survival Guide, Revised and Expanded Edition: Start and Run Your Own Fashion Business 
Fashion Designers' Sketchbooks The Little Black Book of Style Glamour's Big Book of Dos and Don'ts: Fashion Help for Every Woman
*For InStyle's The New Secrets of Style find the latest issue, I couldn't find it on Amazon, but there should be a newer one because I have a different one from 2010.

  32. "Dreaming of Dior" by Charlotte Smith is grogeous. Also, I'm yet to read "Dreaming of Chanel", which is just a continuation, but it's on its way, and I bet it's just as gorgeous. They're illustrated pictures of vintage dresses this woman inherited from her godmother, and little stories of some of the women who wore the dresses. Gorgeous.

  36. I think it's a great idea to give magazine subscriptions out for bdays/holidays. It's literally the gift that keeps on giving (until your sub runs out ...).
