LookBook: Seattle Shenanigans

DSCN2267We recently flew to Seattle to celebrate a very exciting graduation for my man’s sister.  She graduated from Commercial Dive school!  How crazy cool is that?!  For the big event, I went classic chic with a knee length skirt and sweater.  It was a little colder than I thought it would be so ended up wearing this faux leather jacket basically the whole day.  I got a gross bug bite on the side of my toe that was really bothered by my Charlotte Olympia kitty shoes I was planning to wear so I wore my sandals all day.  Even in the rain!  I guess I am a California girl so we can get away with things like that… *wink wink*

Book Review: That Extra Half an Inch By Victoria Beckham

That extra half an inch by Victoria Beckham

When I saw this book (at the Goodwill!) I knew I had to have it.  I actually didn’t even open it before I bought it so I was expecting a biography of sorts.  I was pleasantly surprised that it turned out to be a style guide!  Score!!  I’m a huge Victoria Beckham fan.  She has that classic effortless style that I love.  So her guide, That Extra Half an Inch, was a fun book for me to read!  She actually does give a lot of great style tips throughout and it’s really well illustrated.  There are a lot of photos of Victoria too, which is fun for fans like me.  She has a great cheeky writing style that lends some humor to the text.  It was written in 2006 so some of the “Where to Buy” sections are a bit outdated and doesn’t include some of the newer popular designers.  Otherwise the style advice is still very relevant.  A must read for all fans of Victoria’s style.
