I'll be the first to tell you that I know absolutely nothing about fashion. It's kind of pathetic actually. I have to be in a certain mindset to have a successful shopping trip, and I've never been hung up on brand names. My wardrobe is pretty plain, and I'm okay with that.
That's not to say that I don't enjoy fashion. I love looking at style books and fashion blogs and my fashion Pinterest board is out of control. This is why I was so excited to pick up Refinery29: Style Stalking by Christene Barberich and Piera Gelardi.
Not only are the pages filled with gorgeous pictures, there's also lots of good tips and tricks for someone like me who has little to no fashion knowledge and for the people who already consider themselves fashionistas. Look at this gorgeous first page:
The book is divided into several sections, including denim, black, metallics, mixed prints, brights, and many more. My personal favorites were brights and mixed prints. I love wearing bright colors, no matter the season. Also, I've never been good at mixing prints, but I love looking at how others do it. Maybe this book will help me with that.
Probably my favorite page in the whole book. I love that pink purse!
Each section is also divided even further into different sections:
BASIC TRAINING: Each section starts with five simple tips on how you can master each form of style
STYLE MOVES: Tips for how to take on the style
1 PIECE, 3 WAYS: Pretty self-explanatory. It takes one piece and styles it in three different ways.
RULE BREAKERS: Tips on how to step outside of the box
YEAR-ROUND: Tips on how to wear it for every season
Q&A: A question and answer session with a fashionista
ZOOM LENS: Spotlight on pieces that bring the style to the next level
I give this book a 4 out of 5. I'm excited to add it to my coffee table book collection.
