Like I give a frock book

How fun is this book Like I Give a Frock: Fashion Forecasts and Meaningless Misguidance by Michi Girl?

“Meet Michi. She’s sometimes stylish and sometimes tragic, but she always knows best. She’s sharp and funny. (And maybe just a tiny bit opinionated.) She’s just a shopping queen, weather-watcher and quite possibly the best advice-giver you’ve ever met.

Do you ever wonder when a baguette became a bag and and not just a piece of bread? (Fendi, 1998.) Or when it became acceptable to wear a tracksuit to the supermarket? (It didn’t.) Fishnets at work? Evil sales assistants? The plague of the fat ankle? Michi has all the answers. And if you were thinking of buying a playsuit, just don’t.”

available through Penguin Au. Let me know if you see it someplace in the states.

    Her work is mixed media and so interesting. I love it. What a fun book. I may just have to order it from Australia!

    The book sounds delightful–I couldn’t agree more about the track suits.

    And you’re very welcome! I do really love it.
