I blasted Nina Garcia for writing a book, and today I would like to apologize. Yeah that's right, I am saying that I am sorry. Why? Because I read the book and it's fantastic. I love it.
Nina Garcia's Little Black Book of Style helps you build your closet with staples that will last you a lifetime. Even though I am one to break fashion rules and almost never have a closet staple, I found this book very informative and useful. Nina also guides you to when and where you should wear certain outfits, how to combine colors, and ideas on how to achieve your own signature look.
My favorite aspect of book was the way she threw in little bits of history to go with every key piece you need in your wardrobe. While we are on the topic, I am sure you want to know what the staples are. I will just name just a few so I don't give them all away: a pair of ballet flats, a trench coat, quilted handbag, and a great pair of jeans.
The book also has beautiful illustrations from Ruben Toledo, which helps make the book that much more appealing. This book would make an excellent gift this holiday season.
