I keep checking Nina Garcia's The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own out of the library, and renewing it until I can't renew it anymore! But now it can go back, because this week, my daughter and I went to, as my son puts it, "a ton of stores," and I found a copy to buy!
And not just any copy: this one came in a boxed set with her Little Black Book of Style, which is also very nice, plus it was autographed!
The One Hundred is fun to read just for itself, but as I read I like to think about dressing Enchanted Dolls with miniature versions of the things Garcia writes about. I'm finding that a very up-to-the-minute, haute style look for Yren is very appealing. This book has me convinced that Yren needs black tights, black fishnets, a boyfriend sweater, and many many A-line dresses. Also a sarong, some ballet flats, a cashmere sweater and a cape.
For me, the most fun part is to figure out how to make these things. I don't plan to buy clothes for Yren unless they've been made by someone I know. And though it might sound silly....I'm thinking about choosing a "signature" perfume scent for her, too! But I can't do that before she arrives; one has to know her better first.
