A Cheap Date Guide To Style...Literally
I first heard about this book a few years ago, it had been mentioned in Elle magazine as being quite a quirky read, the only problem was trying to track it down. I eventually managed to order it off Amazon.com. I remember paying about £12.
2/3 years later I am glad to say, it has been worth every penny. It’s a great little book that I am always referring back to. I must admit the first time I picked it up, even I was unfamiliar with the layout and way it was presented. It was almost like a fashion project. However this is why I love this book, it’s quirky and different to any other style ‘manual’ I have ever read and believe me I’ve got through a few.
It’s not telling you what to wear (Trinny and Susannah style) it’s just telling you to embrace individuality and mix it up a little. From thrifting to Karl Lagerfeld, there’s allsorts in here, interviews, a-z’s, a whole section dedicated to ‘inspiration’ and lots of fun pictures. It also bravely asks ‘what makes someone stylish?’ with a whole variety of responses throughout the book.
Apart from recommending this book I have the strangest story to share with you. I was in my local poundland, which is always going to be strange let’s admit it. But I was browsing the quite small book section, and what was on the shelf, but this VERY BOOK! I couldn’t believe it!
I have no qualms with Poundland, just shocked this book turned up in there, when I originally had trouble tracking it down in the first place. I know if I hadn’t already owned this book, it would have been the best bargain ever!
I strongly suggest if you have a Poundland near you, go check this book out, £1 you will not regret it :)
Has anyone else read this book?
