I Love Your Style

I Love Your Style
646.7042 BRO

I recently picked up I Love Your Style which happens to be fantastic! The author, Amanda Brooks, has succeeded in squeezing a complete style guide with over 400 photographs, personal stories, and shopping advice that will both inspire and empower the reader to plunge into the sometimes terrifying challenge of defining, or refining personal style within the books 281 pages.  Brooks divulges into the most widely known types of style categories: Classic, Bohemian, Minimal, High-Fashion, Street, Eclectic, Basics, Cheap Chic, Designer, and of course, Vintage. One of my favorite aspects which I enjoyed most about this book is its lack of "rules" or "commandments" and its focus on helping the reader embrace their own originality, personal history (including the bad fashion choices!), and the liberty to pick and choose characteristics from any distinctive style and make it their own. I highly recommend I Love Your Style to anyone who finds themselves unsatisfied and exasperated in front of the mirror each morning. 

“In this wonderfully wise book, Amanda Brooks reveals the style secrets of unexpectedly elegant, singular women from all walks of life. It’s candid, canny, and cool, much like Brooks herself.” – Anna Wintour
