Last night I was stacking away some books in my mini bookshelf (what do expect out of a New York apartment?!) and I got caught up flipping through some amazing books! I always was a reader (Baby Sitter’s Club books under the covers with a flashlight was pretty common in my house) but my interests in various genres have grown expansively through the years. But to save you the laundry list of books I’ve read, here are some great and inspiring fashion-related reads that have secured a spot on my bookshelves! I am advocate of self-education (not saying formal education isn’t needed) but what you do without begin assigned or told to do so, I feel is much more effective…because it’s self-driven. Know Your Passion and feed it! Happy Reading!
