Hooray for the final arrival of my Christmas present…to myself that is. Every year I give myself a cool present, something that I wouldn’t usually buy so easily, something that I really really want to have, something that isn’t a piece of clothing or a pair of shoes. This time I ordered Carine Roitfeld’s Irreverent, a 360 page consisting visual history of Carine’s career in fashion. A career that I’m highly intrigued by, even though I wouldn’t see myself working as an editor-in-chief at Vogue magazine (not that they would hire me, but still).
Sure, the book is self-serving. But that’s what makes it so cool. I mean, my blog is kinda self-serving too, no? But isn’t that what a part of fashion is about nowadays? To get yourself out there and to give the opinion and story an actual face, literally.
I just received the book, so I haven’t completely read it ofcourse, but I can’t wait to do so and to get a small glimpse of the woman that’s living inside the fashionable 56-year old Parisienne.
