Chic Lit

Like many of you, my apartment is filled with stacks and stacks of books. Style and design books are two of my favorite types to buy because they're full of inspiration. Here are two new-ish books I can't wait to add to my library...
1. I adore Nina Garcia. Aside from having the most perfectly highlighted hair EVER, she also has some pretty fabulous style. Her new book Nina Garcia's Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occassion is at the top of my very long list of books to buy.

I especially love the illustrations by Ruben Toledo.

2. Next up on the list is A Life of Stye by Rebecca Moses. I came across this one in the October issue of House Beautiful. Rebecca did the gorgeous illustrations. Isn't she talented? Can't wait to pick it up!

I think I'm definitely going to need to pick these up before my trip to Charleston this weekend. Thank you, by the way, to everyone who gave their recommendations. You've made me even more excited for the trip! Can't wait to report back!


  1. I'm reading Nina Garcia's Look Book right now. It's pretty good, though I think I liked her last book better... Though I love the illustrations, I sometimes wish she'd give real pictures of what she's describing... but it's great and you'll love it!

  2. I would buy it just for Ruben Toledo! Love, love, love his work. Can't wait to hear about your trip!

  3. Ooooh that sounds like a great book!!!!! I need to get that!!!!!

  4. I can't get over how darn cute those illustrations are! Just precious! I know you're getting so excited for your trip :) YAY! xoxox

  5. Oh, Charleston sounds lovely... I've never been! Have fun. If you like Nina than you must be a Project Runway fan also! xo

  6. I have Nina Garcia's 'Little Black Book of Style' and I LOVE it. The illustrations are absolutely adorable!

    I'm sure you're so excited about your trip! Yay!


  7. I love the illustrations in A Life of Style by Rebecca Moses. It is definitely on my must buy list!

  8. Ohh, I love to read! Thanks for the post!
