Fashion Reads

So if you saw Friday's post you'll know my reading is about to take a fictitious turn. Before that happens though I had to share these two fashion tomes with you all. If you're yet to buy a gift for someone who loves both fashion and books then either of these are bound to go down a treat.

Tongue in Chic by Kirstie Clements This book is a work of fiction but it doesn't follow your traditional novel format as such. It is more of a collection of tales that has been gathered from Kirstie's extensive time spent within the fashion magazine industry. All the names and specific details have been changed so if you're like me you'll be speculating over who she's referring to. One detail that stood out to me was the fact they ordered Diptyque candles wholesale to the office because they were so popular. There were also stories of editors buying the latest trend pieces only to have them never see the light of day on returning home from the fashion shows. If you enjoyed her first book, or like me just love hearing insider stories from within magazines and fashion then you'll like this a lot.

Man Repeller by Leandra Medine A collection of essays in which life and fashion collide perfectly  probably best describes Leandra's first book. Each chapter usually features a key outfit such as the tuxedo suit and a life moment to go alongside it. Her story about an internship at Valentino was particularly entertaining. The writing really reflects Leandra's wit that shines through on her blog. If you're a fan of Man Repeller and are yet to read this book then get yourself a copy! You will laugh. You will be inspired. You may even find some fash-spiration hiding in its pages.
