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.

  1. Great self-gift ! I want to buy this book since its release but the price is a little bit reluctant. Nevermind, I’ll find a way to buy it ^^^And I met Carine Roitfeld many times in Paris, she’s mysterious, rebel and definitely a Parisienne, I adore her !

  2. Looks like a magnificient piece to read & look through. I am a huge fan of those kind of books and fashion books in general. Very inspiring and pleasing to look at.
    Have a nice week!
