Overview

The former muse and creative director for designer label Tuleh, and author of the blog "In Her Eyes" for Men's Vogue, Amanda Brooks is a lifelong fashion chameleon with an unerring eye for the elements of personal style. Smart, glamorous, media-savvy and remarkably practical, Amanda has spent her entire life constructing a unique, eclectic and intimately personal sense of style. With classic roots, bohemian flair, a taste for designer luxuries, and a love for bargains everywhere, Amanda has looked to every imaginable source of fashion inspiration-from high-fashion runways and magazines, to thrift stores and classic movies, to her neighbors in downtown New York and old family photo albums. In I Love Your Style, Amanda helps women of all ages begin to cull through the frighteningly vast world of fashion, from its staid basics to its trendiest moments.

I Love Your Style is a sumptuous full-color look-book and style bible, complete with more than 400 classic and modern photographs, that will both empower and inspire women to dive into the challenge of defining, or refining, their personal style. With fully illustrated chapters, sidebars, shopping lists, and personal stories devoted to a range diverse styles and shopping techniques-Classic, Bohemian, Minimalist, Street, High-Fashion, Cheap Chic, Vintage-Brooks walks readers through every angle of the fashion world, from the basic pieces and accessories that define a style, to the small details, combinations, and adaptations that can make it your own.

With its focus on embracing creativity, personal history, originality, and the freedom to pick and choose aspects from any distinct "style"-and with no "rules," "commandments," or lengthy lists of "don'ts" in sight-I Love Your Style is a must-read for budding fashionistas, or anyone who finds herself frustrated in front of the mirror each morning.

    Definitly Defines and Refines

    I bought this book yesterday and it is flat out AMAZING. First of all its a total steal! I would expect this to be 25-35 dollars. Its so helpful. Unlike other fashion books it does not dictate what every woman must have and fashion donts. Amanda is truly brilliant. This book is about embracing personal style whether it changes through out your life or remains the same. It pretty much helped me with all of my fashion struggles. It is jam packed with pictures- I would probably buy it just for that. Its different from many other fashion books which usually boast overpriced clothing and how many celebs the author knows. Its just flat out amazing. Im not really sure how else to describe this perfect book.

    I Love Your Style of Writing About Yourself

    Always interested in making an improvement or two on my style options, I was intrigued by this book after reading so many positive reviews.
    It seemed like an interesting read, and with Ms. Brooks' position at Barney's NY, I figured--what the heck???

    What a shallow disappointment this book turned out to be. While the photographs proved for some great dish, this book was really a testament to her privileged background. Any style "tips" in this book were textbook and pedestrian at best.

    To anyone out there who may be mulling over purchasing "I Love YOur Style". Don't spend the money. Just picture your own personal style icons, and go shopping for what you like and what fits you.

    Two stars is purely for the photos.
