What started as StyleLikeU co-founder Lily Mandelbaum's personal scrapbook is now an inspirational tome that is much more enthralling than any editorial we've ever seen.

In their mission statement Lily's mother and business partner, Elisa Goodkind says that "clothing is a language -- it's a way of connecting, it's a way of communicating." And the guests at the StyleLikeU book launch -- many of whom were featured in the new volume -- were loud and had lots to say.

There is no requirement to join this tribe of muses -- no age, no gender, no socioeconomic divisions exist. And the crowd at last night's shindig at Bumble & Bumble in NYC further proves Lily and Elisa's love and appreciation of individualism.
