Book Worm: “I Want To Be Her! How Friends and Strangers Helped Shape My Style”

5 Sep


Imagine being in high school and having the coolest girl with the most effortless style sit down and tell you what greatly influences her (and without attitude). This is sort of like talking with Andrea Linett, the co-founder of Lucky magazine and now creative director of Michael Kors. I’ve always admired her candid air in her column Fashion Babble, which concluded every issue of Lucky magazine for over 10 years. Her style, which is greatly inspired by Bob Dylan, is consistent yet always interesting, as you can see on her website I Want To Be Her.

With 50 illustrations of style influences by Anne Johnston Albert of Fashion Babble fame, this book is part memoir, part style guide. It makes it all the more endearing, considering that lots of influence comes from family and friends closest to the author. It goes to show that someone besides an overexposed pop star, can also rock someone’s fashionable world.

I Want To Be Her! How Friends and Strangers Helped Shape My Style is available on Amazon.com

 

The 2011 RGRS Gift Guide: Part 1

3 Dec

It’s that time of the year again and what better way to kick off the season than to have an easy gift guide that will have everyone saying, “Wow, she/he really surprised me with that (fill in fun gift here)?!

This is not just any old guide though. I’ve actually been told that I give the best gifts. I think part of it has to do with that fact that I love shopping vicariously through other people but may I add that being a great listener as well as knowing where to source gifts that have a touch of  personality really helps too!

These guides are not by “Brother”, “Girlfriend”, “Mom”, etc. I did do them by personality but not just any run-of-the-mill type. Chances are if you read this site often, you actually know at least one of these types very well. Tonight features our first personality type, “The Label Whore.”

Yup, no explanation necessary, although I will proceed. She/he only wears the latest and greatest. Yes, even the nail polish is Chanel. Despite what people may think, this is actually a tough type to buy for. Just when you think you have them down, they are all sick of Balenciaga and onto Proenza……
