Fashionable Reads

Are you sick of fashion blogs yet? I hope not, because I really love having readers (it makes me feel special), but sometimes it's nice to read about fashion somewhere other than on your computer screen. In honor of Fashion Through Literature Week (which, by the way, was a crappy idea because I keep finding things I want to write about that I can't relate to literature), here are some stylish books to flip through when the mood strikes.

Eye candy alert! Here is a beautiful book full of Andy Warhol's fashion drawings. If tearing pages out of books didn't feel sacreligious, I would rip out all my favorites and hang them on my wall.

You've probably already read this, but if you haven't you should. A hilarious, fun, and easy read that is perfect for a lazy summer day.

I've heard good things about this one. Tricia from Bits and Bobbins posted a great review of it, praising the tremendously creative wardrobe of Iris Apfel. Apparently the photos are fabulous.

If you're anything like me, then you enjoyed the movie Marie Antoinette solely because of the magnificent costumes. But what did Marie Antoinette really wear? (If you think the movie was accurate, I beg you to remember that a pair of Chuck Taylors had a short cameo). Read this book and find out!

Okay, the world has seen the movie based on this book, and I think most people have read the book. But if you haven't, pick this up for a fun read about an unfashionable girl's experience working at a fashion magazine. And no, this is nothing like Ugly Betty.

I remember Susie Bubble writing about this book a while back. I think the gist of her post was that it encouraged the development of a unique personal style.

Well, dear readers, read on!
