The Pursuit of Style | Reading List

MEMOS The Vogue Years | Beauty at Home | Mastering the Art of French Eating | Flair | Soiree | Paris Street Style

I have an Amazon gift card that’s been burning a hole in my pocket. Thankfully I keep my wish list more up-to-date than my grocery list so it shouldn’t be too hard to put to good use. Here’s what I’ve got in the queue right now…

From two of my idols: I think I already own at least three books on Diana Vreeland so it only makes sense that I pick up MEMOS The Vogue Years. One of my favorite Vreeland-isms: “Style — all who have it share one thing: originality.” Speaking of style, Aerin Lauder has it in spades and I can’t wait to pick up a copy of Beauty at Home. Her interiors are some of my all-time favorites. Remember this room?

Because I wish I were French: I’m curious what French people think of American’s fascination with all things French. Is it flattering or more like when your little sister always wanted to borrow your clothes growing up–kind of annoying? Regardless, I definitely fall into the fascinated American category and Paris Street Style and Mastering the Art of French Eating are two of the latest books to have caught this Francophile’s eye.

Let me entertain you: I had a chance to flip through Soiree by Danielle Rollins and Flair by Joe Nye at the Caspari store in Charlottesville and they’ve been on my to-buy list ever since. If effortless elegance is what you aspire towards as a hostess, these are the books for you!

Have you read anything great lately? I’m always looking for new additions to my list!
