Thematic Sunday: Books About Fashion

So Fashion Week is upon us (or was? I'm not sure of the exact dates) in Milan. In honor of this, I am doing a theme list of books about clothes. Now, as always, I'm being extremely liberal with this. Some may be about clothes, some may be about special kinds of clothes with magical powers, some may just be about people who like fashion. If clothes feature in some way shape or form, it's going to be in here.

1) Queen of Babble series by Meg Cabot

Why: The main character is a fashion history nut. Plus, Cabot is always just fun to read.

2) The Devil Wears Prada series by Laura Weisberger

Why: If you know anything about the movie, you know why. Though I honestly didn't know there were all these other books.

3) Tim Gunn's Fashion Bible by Tim Gunn

Why: Tim Gunn is legendary and flawless (I'm a Time Gunn fangirl, not going to lie). All of his books on fashion are pretty solid. This is my particular favorite though because it goes into the history of articles of clothing. Like say the history of the suit.

4) The Time-Traveling Fashionista series by Bianca Turetsky

Why: Story-wise, this series is pretty average. What makes it for me are the beautiful fashion illustrations in between the story. I want to buy the books just for the gorgeous packaging alone.

5) Vintage Magic Mysteries series by Annette Blair

Why: This is a cozy mystery series about a woman with magical powers who owns a vintage dress shop and uses her gifts to solve mysteries.

6) Twenties Girl by Sophie Kinsella

Why: Features a mystery wrapped up around a missing necklace.

7) Dior by Dior: The Autobiography of Christian Dior

Why: If you don't know who Christian Dior is...I really don't know what to say to you. Just know at the very least, he's very important in fashion.

8) Wish books by Alexandra Bullen

Why: There are two books in the series. They both feature a dress that grants wishes. Don't lie, we all want that dress.

9) Poseur series by Rachel Maude

Why: about a group of girls who have to create a fashion line for a school project.

10) Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants series by Ann Brashares

Why: About a group of friends who find a pair of pants that magically fits all of them (want those damn pants), and the adventures they have whilst wearing the pants.
