3 Must Read Books If You Are Into Fashion And Instagram
There are many terrific books on fashion, but with the birth of Instagram also came the birth of “new era” authors who wrote a book after their InstaFamous success. There are one too many bloggers who have attempted at publishing a book, and not everyone has succeeded, to say the least. My picks today include star winners that are worth your time regardless if you are a blogger, a style enthusiast or just a curious human being.
Written by my absolute favorite influencer to date, Tezza. She has been inspiring me with her incredible content and an impeccable sense of style for a long time. Tezza has a strong photography background and a dedicated husband and together they are a team who has created the ultimate platform for success in the “Insta-Space”. What I love the most about Tezza’s brand is that it is a true source of inspiration for someone like me always looking to take that perfect InstaShot, but wanting to do something different. Her creativity and editorial style are captivating and like no one else in the influencer space. When Tezza announced her book release, I was extremely excited to be able to learn her secrets. I have taken a few Influencer courses that offer way less valuable information than InstaStyle. If you are wanting to pursue the “Insta-Famous” career or maybe you just want to perfect your feed for your brand or business, this book will surprise you with the many little secrets on the path to “Insta-Success”.
This inspiring book is by Garance Dore, another muse of mine that I discovered on Instagram. The book is part memoir and part style guide, with a lot of soul and personal story of accomplishment. For those of you who are interested in the blogosphere industry, this is a great read and a true story that is told in a very relatable voice. Her wisdom and knowledge of strong, accomplished women and how they think is very spot on. Great read and a stylish book to lay on your coffee table as a conversation starter.
This lovely book is the ultimate fashion bible, designed and published in Hong Kong but the Fashion Diary. If you are into fashion, this book is designed to visually inspire and explain. As much as I consider myself a fashion guru, there are so many terms and definitions of style that are foreign to me, this book is so helpful in uncovering and understanding these terms and fashion secrets. The book converts unapproachable technical terms on style, material, and production into beautiful charts and infographics. So whether you’re an industry insider or a fashion connoisseur this book should be on your shelf. Fashionpedia is all you’ll ever need to navigate the fashion scene. The best part it is designed to fit in your purse and be that pocket encyclopedia on the go.
I will confess one of my New Year’s Resolutions is to read more books. Instagram has taken most of my free time away and become a type of addiction doing what I do is hard to kick. Thankfully these reads make it easy to swap the filtered “Insta-Screen” for a real book that gets your imagination flowing. I hope one of these books spikes your interest. Drop me a line if you have read any of these and your thoughts.
Thank you for reading and keep styling,
