This is a very interesting book, to say the least! I'm a pretty creative dresser, but this takes having your own style to a whole new level. And while In my opinion a good portion of these looks say "rich homeless" to me, and look very unflattering, I know this is what the creative hipster type are wearing now. There were lots of good tips, such as where a skinny jean should stop on your ankle, or buying the right height bootie, but sometimes I saw their advice contradicted in the photos. I think the photography is great, very colorful and inspiring. And there are a lot of great pieces used in the creation of these outfits. I can't say I'd wear half of it, as it's very unpractical and unflattering ..but there were some really pretty looks that I'd love to recreate. I would have liked there to be a bibliography of sorts with the designer name of a lot of the pieces. I know a lot were thrift finds, but knowing who made the garments would have made for a fun internet search or something to look for when I am thrifting.
I received this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
