The best thing about all of this back-to-school hubbub, other than a ton of favorite shows coming back on air (I’m looking at you Mad Men and Project Runway)? It has me feeling all bookish.
A bevy of new style bibles and fashion tomes have hit the market recently and I can’t wait to satisfy my bibliostyle yearnings with these top picks.
American Fashion Cookbook: 100 Designers’ Best Recipes
The fashion industry’s not normally associated with imbibing anything more than champagne, but surprise, surprise, designers chow — and in style, naturally. Wanna know how to make Isaac Mizrahi’s Mushroom Truffle Spaghetti? Tory Burch’s Andalusian Gazpacho? With a foreword by my fave domestic goddess, Martha Stewart, and published by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), I can’t wait to be inspired in the kitchen. Just one question: What to wear?!
The Style Strategy: A Less-Is-More Approach to Staying Chic and Shopping Smart
The always-chic Project Runway judge and Marie Claire editor, Nina Garcia debuts her third book of style and I can’t wait to get my desperately-in-need-of-a-manicure paws on it. I don’t know about you, but a lot of fashion books can be major letdowns. Nina’s are always relevant, helpful, interesting and beautiful (they’re gorgeously illustrated by Ruben Toledo — yes, the hubby of Isabel Toledo).
Giving it his best shot? Super street-style shutterbug Scott Schuman, a.k.a The Sartorialist, just released his first book. An anthology of his favorite photos of tastemakers both famous and unknown, this book is a must for any photoblogging aficionado, or simply anyone who dreams of being as stylish and worldly as The Sart’s subjects.
