*My Fashion Royalty~Nina Garcia*

I am beyond obsessed with Nina Garcia's fashion books.  Unlike other fashion books, this one is the real deal when it comes to explaining her love for fashion and how to wear it without breaking your pocket.  I've read other books that tell you to do not wear this and that, but in these books she tells you to wear this and that and more... I love her "I DON'T BELIEVE IN RULES"...*Neither Do I.. ;-)*


            



1st BOOK:  "The Little Black Book of Style" ~ This book is an Introduction of Her.  How she got started, her inspirations, her life and tips on what to wear and when to wear it... I believe she did a great job on this first book. 




2nd BOOK: "The One Hundred: A Guide To The Pieces that Every Stylish Woman Should Own" ~ I'll say, that I don't wear all 100, however, I can certainly see myself saving for a "Herm├Ęs Birkin Bag".  This bag is sooo beautiful, classy, looks chic... and there's always a downfall on something so beautiful: THE PRICE TAG: $8,000 with a 2-yr waiting list :-/.  I guess I'll just go and save for an LV Speedy Bag.  I found that there were items that are inexpensive and still you will look your best... For Example:


A Plain White Tee and add a Brooch and you're good to go.  The Famous Little Black Dress...There's a Little White Dress also... A Charm Bracelet: This item will always make your wrist look fashionable.  And my favorite, the Ankle Bootie > Sexy, Stylish and TO DIE FOR!  For the rest of the items, you will have to buy the book.  The Illustrations by Ruben Toledo gave this book a twist from informative, to I wish those drawings were on my walls.   




3rd BOOK: "The Style Strategy: A Less-Is-More Approach To Staying Chic And Shopping Smart": This is the book that will guide you in the right path to buy all those things that were included in the previous book, but at a lower price.  Who said Fashion and looking your best have to cost you an arm and a leg... Not Nina...


In this book is all about these three questions: 


1. What Do I have?  2. What Do I Need?  3.  What Do I Want?


If you ask me, I don't have much, I do need everything and I want it ALL!!!, but of course, I'll have to win the lottery first and invest in a good deal to keep my $ flowing....
Ok, now back to reality...This book will show you how to find what it is that you need in order to buy less and have more options in your closet.  Also, of course that you might think it's ridiculous to spend lots of $ on a purse or an item of clothing in this economy, but in reality, we all know that a Coach purse last forever and a great pair of jeans perhaps a life time... So don't be afraid of investing and make sure that you take good care of the things that you have worked for... 


 
4th BOOK: "Nina Garcia's Look Book: What To Wear For Every Occasion" Release Date: August 10, 2010... This book has been pre-ordered.  No doubt it will be fabulous :-)



In my opinion, I give these books the seal of approval.  Not only she teaches you what to wear, but how to wear it and not to be afraid of making fashion your own...


Now order these titles (www.amazon.com) or get to a book store (www.barnesandnoble.com) near you... They are worth the price and the confidence that you will get when you're done reading and out the door looking like a million bucks while shopping smart...
