Book Beginning: Know Your Style by Allyson Walsh

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



What does "know your style" even mean? Is it akin to knowing yourself, or knowing your onions -- or perhaps a bit of both?

Know Your Style: Mix It, Match It, Love It by Allyson Walsh. I'm feeling a little frumpy these days and hoping this will inspire some fresh spring looks for me. Alyson Walsh is a fashion editor and journalist at That’s Not My Age.




Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING





TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


MY FRIDAY 56

Shirin Guild's skirt square always feels right in different fabrics for different occasions, dressed up or down. . . . I really like the simplicity (it is effectively like a poncho taken down to the waist) and it hangs in a style redolent of the period 1916 - 1919, which I adore. 

-- Amy de la Haye, describing her favorite wardrobe staples.

Sounds good and a great cover.

Catherine @ Book Club Librarian said...

It's a good time to read this type of book--a change of season and hopefully, an update in style.

Jessie @ Dwell in Possibility said...

Love that cover!

Roberta said...

Spring is an inspiring season. All the fresh colors and newness make me want to update my look, too. Hope you find what you need in it.

I say fashion is basically personal taste. How to books really don't help me.

Kathy Martin said...

Since my style consists mainly of jeans and sweats, I'm not sure this is the book for me. I hope you enjoy it. This week I am spotlighting Grave Destiny by Kalayna Price. Happy reading!
