#GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso: Sophia Amoruso is the founder and owner of Nasty Gal, an amazing store that is for “girls who just want to get dressed for themselves and not for anyone else”. This books talks about how she started off as a college dropout who was stealing from stores and train hopping, to this phenomenal, successful business woman she is today. The book really inspired me, being that Sophia kept pursuing what she loved and kept going, regardless of failure. This book should be read by everyone, regardless of whether or not you’re into fashion, as it truly inspires me to become a girl boss like her.
How to be Parisian Wherever You Are: Love, Style, and Bad Habits by Anne Berest, Audrey Diwan, Caroline De Maigret, and Sophie Mas: This book was written by a group of Parisian friends, hence the title and discusses style, beauty, attitude, and everything a girl needs to be Parisian (aka a badass with killer style). It includes pages like, “What you won’t find in her closet” and “Not your most glorious moments”, as well as “How to make him think you have a lover”. Needless to say, this book is amazing.
The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior: This book was written by Christian Dior- amazing French designer who of course created Dior. This is such a classic book that covers everything from collars to the way you walk to the color brown. Just like a most students who take English or any other language need a dictionary, everyone who speaks fashion needs this book.
It by Alexa Chung: This book was written by Alexa Chung- another girl boss. The illustrations, photographers, and the little snippets of fashion advice and experiences, just come together as such a book of art, that everyone must have.
In Vogue: An Illustrated History of the World’s Most Famous Fashion Magazine by Alberto Oliva, Norberto Angeletti, and Anna Wintour: I think the title basically sums up this book. Vogue is one of the most influential magazines in history. This book showcases it, with the covers of Vogue from all the way from the beginning of the magazine, and discusses topics like the evolution of style. This is another classic and very interesting read, especially for fashion lovers like me.
