If you're looking for some fun (and fashionably inspirational) summer reading material, look no further than Simon Doonan's Eccentric Glamour: Creating A More Insanely Fabulous You.
Check out my book review at Second City Style.
Or just read the first two paragraphs of the book:
"Why the hell wouldn't you want to be one of the fabulous people, the life enhancers, the people who look interesting and smell luscious and who dare to be more gorgeously fascinating than their neighbors?
I recently left my apartment dressed as Queen Elizabeth II. Not queen as in corgis and tweed skirts, but queen as in decked out like a giant flashing Christmas tree on the occasion of some totally major state dinner. Accessories? Just a few: long white gloves, two rhinestone necklaces,
eleven bracelets, three brooches, six rings, a sash, two dangly earrings, three medals, a hubcap-sized tiara, and a giant pair of bifocals."
It only gets better from there.
