Delivery from Amazon!

I ordered these books last week and was so excited to get them, they came this morning and I can't wait to start reading them! I bought Style by LC at Christmas time and really enjoyed reading it, so I thought that instead of buying magazines and things that make me fat, that I'd put my money to good use and buy something I'll have forever - books!

The first package that came was the Harper's Bazaar Great Style book. I've had a quick flick through and it seems like a really good book, the reviews online for this book are great too.

The next package contained The One Hundred by Nina Garcia, The Fashion Book by Phaidon Editors and The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior.

This book has a really eye catching design - black and pink on silver. It is self described as 'a guide to the pieces every stylish woman must own'. One thing I dislike about this book is that there are no photographs, but I can live with the pretty illustrations, and I love the way Nina writes.

The Fashion Book is basically a dictionary of the the most influential people in fashion from Giorgio Armani to Michael Kors to Levi Strauss. I'm really looking forward to this book!

Finally, the most beautiful of the 4. The cover is a grey material with embossed pink and silver lettering. Describing its self as 'a guide to dress sense for every woman', a statement which I think suits this little book perfectly. Beautiful exterior, wonderful layout and knowledge from the best.
