Must Read: Grace: A Memoir

Grace Coddington,Grace: A MemoirIf you have seen The September Issue, you most likely fell in love with Grace Coddington like the rest of us. She has lived a fascinating life in the fashion industry and released a memoir of her journey from model to one of fashion’s most important editors. I highly recommend picking up this book for your holiday reading (available here on Amazon). I know I’ll be stopping by my local bookstore to pick up a copy this week.

Mensential: ABC of Men’s Fashion

abc of men's fashion, Sir Hardy Amies, Fashion Encyclopedia, Fashion Dictionary,This is a book I bought years ago and I have used it over and over again.  It is the perfect encyclopedia for all your sartorial needs and I believe every man should own one. With Christmas just around the corner,  this is the perfect gift for that guy in your life (especially if he is fashion challenged)! While you are at it, why not buy a copy for yourself too; it’s a great resource and looks super chic sitting on your bookshelf or thrown (carefully) upon your stack of old Vogue’s and GQ’s. It is available here on Amazon and I’m sure at local bookstores.
