A couple of weeks ago it was my birthday. I've not had a chance to write about presents or anything until now but had to share with everyone the two books I'm currently reading. Both were gifts from friends who know me very well indeed.
This book is different from other girly books I've read because it pulls in the thoughts and quotes from some of the most glamorous women through history. Marylin Monroe, Sophia Loren and Audrey Hepburn, not to mention some modern day superstars like Angelina Jolie and Reese Witherspoon. Everything's covered from diet and beauty tips to what cocktail to order and how to enter a room. I'm feeling inspired.
This book looks at fashion from 1900 to the present day, approaching each decade with a chapter about the looks of the day. See old Vogue covers, satirical drawings of ridiculous fashion and photographs too. The second half of the book is an A-Z of fashion designers, something I intend to revise thoroughly.
Thanks to my lovely friends for such wonderful pressies.
