The Little Black Book of Style

The Little Black Book of Style - Nina Garcia, Ruben Toledo An excellent little fashion-style manual. It's not wordy nor very flashy. It is a slim, quick, and helpful style book. The guide on using cult fashion movies (i.e.: Breakfast at Tiffany's; American Gigalo; Belle du Jour) and music stars was very helpful, especially if you're too young (chronologically or fashionista-ly) to know the connections & influences. The movies and rock stars listed were obvious. Like most fashion/style guidebooks, I did find this one to aslo be a bit snobby. Not everyone can afford a 100% (and long lasting) cashmere sweater to be worn casually to supermarket. A nice arclyic and cotton blend sweater can look just as nice in both professional and personal settings.
