Review: Nina Garcia’s Look Book

A few weeks ago, the nice people over at Hyperion Books contacted me to see if I wanted to review Nina Garcia’s newest book, Look Book: What to Wear for Every Occasion.  I love Nina Garcia’s books and have her “The Little Black Book of Style” (which I reviewed here) and “The One Hundred” so of course I couldn’t wait to get my hands on her latest book! 

When I got it I couldn’t wait to look at all the illustrations by Ruben Toledo, that’s one of my favorite parts of all her books!  But first I noticed just how thick this book was!  It’s so much bigger than her other books and to me, I LOVE thick books so I was already into it.  Flipping through it, I loved each little section that she put together.  She’s thought of every event for each section from Work, Dating, Day, Night, Holidays, etc… She goes through each event and has suggestions of “What you should wear”.  It’s super easy to read as it’s only a few pages for each “event” but so helpful.  I’ve already picked up some great tips.  It’s not something that you need to read the whole way through.  Just go to the sections applicable to you and then flip through the rest of the book to see the pretty illustrations!  If you couldn’t tell already, it gets two Style-ish Thumbs Up so if you’ve been wanting I suggest to get it now! 🙂

Of course I couldn’t leave you without some pictures of the book.  I did a little photoshoot with my shoes and jewelry.  I thought it was appropriate!

    Pauline – I didn't see your tweet to me? Maybe my tweetdeck is not showing me all of my @ messages? Anyway, I can't respond on twitter but go ahead and enter. If an international reader wins, I'll take care of it if shabby apple doesn't.
