Image and Style Books – The Triumph of Individual Style by Carla Mathis
The other day I did a review of The Little Black Book of Style – which I wan’t hugely impressed with. I was asked what books I did think were worth the money, I’ve already done a review of Christopher Hopkins Staging Your Comeback: A Complete Beauty Revival for Women Over 45 which I think has some good and practical information, and amazing makeover pictures. Though my all time favourite has to be Carla Mathis’ The Triumph of Individual Style : A Guide to Dressing Your Body, Your Beauty, Your Self.
This book may be old, the illustrations of clothing may be dated, but the concepts are brilliant. Each time I read this book I get something new from it. It’s dense, and needs to be digested in small bites as there is just so much in it, but it contains gold.
