great Fashion Reads

i love a good magazine but i'm starting to buy more and more fashion related books.
I was visiting The Strand in NYC on 12th and Bway and who shall I run into but
Mick Jagger...Yes...I almost peed my pants.
trust me if you want to see celebrities just hang out in that bookstore...everytime I go I see a celebrity.
they like to read too you know!

 So I picked up June Ambroses book Effortless Style and an unofficial tale of Anna Wintours Rise to Editor and Chief at Vogue by Jerry Oppenheimer.
I even noticed that June Ambrose signed this copy I bought! SCORE!

I must say that Front Row Anna Wintour is JUICY JUICY JUICY!
I cannot put this book down!
I don't personally know Anna Wintour but I've always wanted to know more about her and how she got to be the Queen B of Fashion and reign over New York City.
Effortless Style is a great go to book about the basics in fashion and was a quick read too.

what are you reading?
