On My Bookshelf // Beyond Chic

October 3, 2013

Whaaaaa? I'm posting two days in a row?? Look out!

Sooo...babies don't give you a lot of time to do much of anything. Besides, you know, stare at them...feed them...change them...and try to get them to stop crying, which often requires holding them. Fortunately, you can also read books while doing some of those tasks which almost saves your sanity. This is why I jumped at the opportunity when the fine folks at The Vendome Press contacted me about reviewing several of their upcoming publications. Enter Beyond Chic, Great Fashion Designers at Home.

I'm always into seeing how people live. A lot of times, I don't really feel like I know a person until I've seen their home. It's been that way since I was pretty young. You learn so much about people through their spaces! I love getting a peek inside the homes of fashion's greats...and Beyond Chic covers so many.

Giorgio Armani

Franca Sozanni

Manolo Blahnik

Reed Krakoff

...and more than a dozen others.
A few of my other favorites included
Loulou de la Falaise

Vanessa Seward

and Nicole Farhi.

This one's definitely coffee table worthy, my friends. And if you're going to be bed- or sofa-bound anytime soon, might as well just go ahead and pre-order now.

I've had lots of couch time, so more delicious book reviews coming up!

Fine Print: The Vendome Press provided a copy of this book for my review. All opinions are my own.
