DV - Diana Vreeland


Taking only one semester here at LIM College so far, I have already indulged in various amounts of books at the Adrian G.Marcuse Library, that of where I proudly work. This selection offers both great assistance with homework assignments, internships, and just pure enjoyment.

Now, in regards to book recommendations for pure enjoyment, I am more than happy, if not excited, to share the things that bring me joy with you guys! Though the mystery novels and the philosophy books draw my interest immensely, it is the renowned Editor-in-Chiefs' autobiographies, the Fashion-Gossipy novels, the Art Historic books, and the honest relatable feel-good stories that I love to read for fun. One book in particular that definitely takes the cake in terms of bringing true significance in New York City fashion would be D.V. by Diana Vreeland.

For those into a bit of gossip, the best, I assure you, can be told by the fashion editor of Harper's Bazaar and editor-in-chief of Vogue, Diana Vreeland.

"Moving from English palaces to the nightclubs of 1930s Paris, the wilds of Wyoming to the exclusive venues of New York high society, D.V. takes readers into this iconic woman's dazzling life, evoking the luxury and brio of an era that encompassed Josephine Baker, England's Queen Mary, Buffalo Bill, and Diaghilev." --From the Back Cover


The Library offers hundreds of books offering pure enjoyments like the memoir of the dazzling Diana, and I am sure, if not positive, you'll find yours there.
