It’s always fun to look back on the year and remind yourself just what you have (or, in some cases, haven’t yet) accomplished. Every year I enjoy doing this. Some years I have written it down online and others in my own personal journal (you know, the kind that requires ink and paper). I really still love good, old, pen and ink. But, that’s another story for another day. Today! Today we are going to take a look at the best of 2010…. all things fashion related, that is.
– How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World – Jordan Christy
I haven’t finished this book quite yet, but I overheard some women talking about this book at work one day and the title totally captured my interest and the book, so far, is doing the same.
– The Gospel According to CoCo Chanel – Karen Karbo
I spotted this book in Anthropologie and knew I had to get it.
– The Fashion Book (Mini Edition) – Richard Martin
The A to Z list of the most famous designers, models and photographers in the fashion industry. A great little pocket guide for those who want to be in the know.
– Possessionista:: http://www.possessionista.com
I love scouring her blog (especially after a new episode of The Bachelor/Bachelorette). She always has most of the outfits from what the girls on each of these shows (and other shows as well) were wearing.
– J. Crew Aficionada:: http://jcrewaficionada.blogspot.com/
If you happen to love J. Crew like I do, this blog has the 411 on sales and discounts!
– Rue La La:: http://www.ruelala.com/
This little gem of a website has great sales on a variety of items (both for the home and for your wardrobe). If you’re not a member, just sign up – it’s FREE – (https://www.ruelala.com/registration?referrerId=MTc4ODI5Nw==&eKey=b3BlbnJlZ0BydWVsYWxhLmNvbQ==&aid=1320)
– Coco Before Chanel (movie)
This movie was absolutely fascinating! I really enjoyed hearing about her life before she became, well, Chanel. I loved her rather humble upbringing as well as her humble start in the world of fashion.
– Project Runway (tv show)
I watched a few seasons (thank you Hulu!) of this show and really enjoyed seeing the “in’s” and “out’s” of the fashion design world.
I know there are hundreds of other movies/tv shows that are fashion related out there, but these are just the ones I have had time / desired to watch.
Have a wonderful, happy and safe New Year’s! There are good things a-coming in 2011…. I have lots in store so be sure to check back soon! Fashion emergency? Email away! Shopformekate(at)yahoo(dot)com
