Always Pack a Party Dress
It’s been years since I’ve seen Amanda Brooks in person so it was lovely to catch up with her at a private book signing for Always Pack a Party Dress: And Other Lessons Learned from a (Half) Life in Fashion last week. The book is perfect for our ADD-lack-of-attention-span new world. It’s filled with memoir chapters mixed with style influences and honest advice.
Everyone thinks working in the fashion world is glamorous and easy but her stories of her first fashion month working for Barneys gives you the real scoop on how much work is involved. I especially loved her candor about the hard work that also goes into marriage.
I’m also happy to report that Amanda’s blog I Love Your Style will be back up and running in a few weeks after some technical trouble. I look forward to its return but in the meantime, I will continue reading her wonderful new book and recommend you do the same.
