Top Fashion Book and Movie Picks

One of my favorite parts about fashion is the industry itself because there is so much more than meets the eye.

Before getting into the industry, I thought it seemed quite simple. You design clothes. You make the clothes. You sell the clothes. Yet, as I quickly learned, there is so much more to it than that.

In honor of this passion for the industry, I thought I'd share with you some of my top picks for books and movies that will offer you different perspectives into the world of fashion.

  1. "The House of Gucci: A Sensational Story of Murder, Madness, Glamour and Greed" by Sara G. Forden.

The title of this book could not be more accurate and straight to the point. This is a book that will have you whipping through the pages in earnest to find out what is about to happen. 

You learn some business insight while getting a drama-filled plot that is so intertwined you would think it's a soap opera. Even if you don't know anything or much about the Gucci family, you will appreciate this book.

  1. "House of Versace" from Lifetime

 

I tend to veer towards movies that are more documentary-based, but this film from Lifetime drew me in.

Donatella Versace was vocal about not backing this movie, which could be a sign of its accuracy or of its inaccuracy.

I say, take the movie with a grain of salt, but be prepared for a wild ride behind Versace, which begins shortly before the death of Gianni Versace and works to highlight Donatella's struggles to take on the family business while working to keep her own family intact.

  1. "IRIS"

First off, I must admit that I haven't seen this documentary yet, but it's on my list. Iris Apfel seems to be an amazing person that is so full of life and says exactly what's on her mind. Additionally, in the trailer of the movie, she thinks she could possibly be the first women to wear jeans and dares not to speak about her time decorating the White House or she may get into trouble, which offers some perspective into her personality.

Here's another glimpse into Iris, from the documentary.

"I didn't give a damn about going to the party or being at the party, it was getting dressed for the party. And there's truth and poetry in that."

Stay tuned for more fashion book and movie picks.

Let’s Try “Intuitive Eating”

May 22, 2019

Have you noticed how much dining in or out has changed in recent years? First of all: everything has to be recorded on one’s phone. Then we have to listen to a litany of: a) I’m on a diet, b) no carbohydrates, c) I’m a vegetarian, d) no salt ever, e) white sugar is a killer, f) no peanuts ever.

Ad infinitum. Ad absurdum.

The Legendary Chateau Marmont, Part II

May 15, 2019

Now, let’s take a close look at what is one of the most important features of the Marmont. The short answer is: PRIVACY. The hotel never publicly discusses its famous guests or reveals the names of those currently staying there. In other words: zippered lips are stage center.

BODYWEAR

We use Italian lingerie sizing  for our bodywear and items tend to run small.

Because of the body-hugging nature of the fabric and our body conscious fit most women prefer to wear our layering tops as under-layers. If you are inclined to wear them on their own we suggest you size up. Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.

 

MODAL TEES

Relaxed fit. Wear alone or over any of our layering tees or camisoles.

Please email us or give us a call if you have questions about your sizing. We're happy to help you get it right.
