A Passion for Fashion

Pin It

Recently I’ve developed a hankering for fashion. Now this is not usual for me. I blame Pinterest. I believe that somehow from just pinning a pretty photo I’ll absorb that information and become the person my Pinterest boards want me to be. Yes, I have delusions of grandeur. This also applies to the crafty, baker and home decorator I think I can be.

I am trying to apply some of the things I learn about dressing my person now that I’m at an age where a pair of overall shorts (remember those?) just isn’t cute anymore. It’s not easy since clothes are expensive, especially the beautiful things I see on Pinterest. I’m trying to learn more though, just to be prepared. I read Go Fug Yourself and am obsessed with everything that Mindy Kaling wears on The Mindy Project (she has the cutest things). I also picked up some fashion magazines, much to the surprise of my ten year old: “Mom, why did you buy those?!” (with a look of fear and distrust).

Magazines

Note to magazines: Put a brunette on the cover and I’m going to buy it.

I was perusing one magazine, aptly named Fashion, when I discovered an article in the February edition on graphic novels. Yes, one can never escape books, they are everywhere! There are fashion graphic novels! I haven’t found a graphic novel I wanted to read in awhile, so I’ve added these to the TBR list.

So thanks to Fashion magazine for putting these on my radar. Are there any other fashion related graphic novels or just novels that I might be missing? (Shopaholic and The Devil Wears Prada are the only ones I can think of.)

  1. I understand where you're coming from. Pinterest did it to me too. Sarah Pekkanen's THESE GIRLS deals with the fashion industry. I really enjoyed it too.

  3. I heard Kiki de Montparnasse was really good. Unfortunately I don't think it's available in the US (?). At least it wasn't the last time I checked.
