What I love most about the book is that it doesn't take itself too seriously, which is perfect for someone like me, who does. Who wants to wear all-Hermes-all-the-time (and who can afford to?) Much more fun is pairing classic Vivier's with a pair of GAP jeans, right?
de la Fressange gives her blessing for mixing high and low end pieces, vintage with contemporary, as well as men's and women's clothing. For me, who rarely steps outside my uniform navy-gray-black-denim, this book is encouragement to be a little more adventurous
Whether you buy it, borrow it, or browse it at the bookstore, this little book is worth the time.
