I'm someone who absolutely loves all kinds of fashion books, and I am always reading a fashion book. I want to share my knowledge on these books, no matter if they are photography books, books on designers, books with outfits or fashion sketches in them, or any other type of books on fashion. So read my reviews and feel welcome to give me tips on other good fashion books that I have not read yet!

Review: The Cheap Date Guide to Style by Kira Jolliffe and Bay Garnett

The Cheap Date Guide to Style by fantastic and fun authors Kira Jolliffe and Bay Garnett is a rather unusual fashion book. But I mean that in a good way!

This makes this book a great buy for anyone who is sick of the same advice you find in most other fashion books, since this style guide has quite a few rather unusual tips and also lists some more unique staples for your wardrobe. The authors also seem to want to inspire women to have fun while dressing and experimenting as much as they can in order to find a truly personal style, which is something I really appreciate.

The book is intended for those on a high street budget rather than fans of luxury brands, and is great for anyone who does not want to spend too much money on fashion and style, as well as for students and others on a smallish budget.

You will also find lots of fun quotes in the book, by everyone from actresses Mischa Barton and Rachel Weisz to Dita von Teese, Zac Posen, Beth Ditto and Miss Piggy herself! It also introduces us to some rather surprising style heroes, from Amelia Earhart to Tracey Emin, which is fun too.

So if your style is very traditional and you prefer the classic style guides, this book might be a bit too weird for you, but for those of us who prefer to stay open minded about fashion and have fun with it, this is a great choice!
