Must Have- The ELLEments of Personal Style

I was on my way out of Barnes and Noble when I spotted this on the new arrivals table. Its cover metal gold and staring right at me, I had to peek inside! From the editors of Elle Magazine, this book showcases the personal styles of some current style icons, the driving forces behind their stylish choices complete with inspiration boards and personal photos.

Beautifully photographed images in this book give its readers an exclusive access pass into the homes and closets of 25 women. Featured in the book are Diane Von Furstenburg, Milla Jovich, Alicia Keys, Tracee Ellis Ross and Fatima Robinson just to name a few.

Read an excerpt from the book here: http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/PenguinEMS2010/EllementsofPersonalStyle._V195704160_.pdf

A long time fan of Tracee Ellis Ross, since her days as a cast member on Girlfriends it was nice to see her on a more personal level. I particularly enjoyed the photo gallery of her famous mom in a stairwell hall in her home. The Louboutin fringed boots she slips on while sitting on the edge of her bed are amazing. A must read and perfect gift for any chic fashionista.

Anthropologie November 2010 Catalog

Forever a favorite for beautifully designed clothing, styling and photography, Anthropologie pleases again with the November edition. Fantasy and whimsy provide the perfect backdrop to the upcoming festive season. Ethereal in mood, the photography and settings capture a sense of a dreamy winter wonderland. Perfect for fall and areas with mild winters are the selection of sweater coats, sweaters and knit dresses. My favorites from this issue...
