I had this book in college, probably an earlier edition and I lost it when I moved, I almost cried...

And the list goes on and on... But these are my current cravings... If you have any suggestions of good fashion/photography/art books please let me know, I'm a fan and a collector!


  1. Oh, Kristin Knox's book on Alexander McQueen is definitely worth investing in! I have it myself and not only are the images amazingly well selected, the text is so well written I almost burned my dinner the day I bought the book. Go for it!

  2. wow such inspirational books! i may have to get my hands on some :)

  3. Thanks for the great list of books. I'm a book fanatic and am currently trying to improve my own repertoire. I think bookshelves look so chic and they really say a lot about a person. Right now my bookshelf is filled my school books and my boyfriend's chemistry textbooks. Yes I have a little bit of work to do! xx

  4. Lua!!! Here I have some other that you will die:

    The Stephen Sprouse Book by Roger Padilha

    Louis Vuitton: Art, Fashion and Architecture by Jill

    "Fifth Avenue, 5 a.m.” by Sam Wasson

    Andy Warhol ''Giant'' Size, Large Format
    Editors of Phaidon Press (I'm a Andy Junkie)


  5. I am always adding books to my list and definitely a few of these are on the it.
    Thanks for reminding me that I have to make good on it. :)
