Do you like style guide books??

Today I took a break and went for a walk and to my favourite book store..After I got myself U.Eco's new novel I took a look at the fashion section and i saw soo many style guides,books about fashion etc.. Do you read them or you think we should have our own style and not copy looks..
I like having some style&fashion books on my desk,shelf as coffeetable books and as a decorative touch...but i certainly not read and follow them in my personal style..
**We chose a dress with different colours and  circles with white as a base colour.just to keep it simple with no accessories,it is too hot for anything else..sorry about the weird face expressions it was so sunny and had no glasses with us ..

  3. My friend once gave me the most amazing book of Oscar dresses from over 50 years. It's the best coffee table book ever!

  6. i adore style books. although sometimes i find it hard for me to justify buying them at full price. i'm always glad when i can find one at second-hand stores that is still in excellent quality!

  7. I Loove that dress! You look Gorgeous! I also Love style books but primarily use them as decor.

  13. I just peek fashion books on the store to have some inspiration, but i never bought one!
    Lovely dress!

  14. I can't recall ever reading a guide to style book, generally because I never agree with what stylists say most the time (like Gok for example ><) but I can see how they might be useful references when studying a fashion related subject to gain a more diverse perspective.
    & the stripe dress is adorable.


    ps. Thank you for your post comment! :)

  15. Όταν λες εμείς να φανταστώ εσύ και η αδερφή σου? Πολύ όμορφο το φόρεμα... :) Προσωπικά δεν μου αρέσουν τα coffee table books, θέλω το βιβλίο που θα διαβάσω να είναι μυθιστόρημα ή κάτι τέτοιο, να έχει καμιά 500αριά σελίδες (διαβάζω πολύ γρήγορα), δεν θέλω να αγοράσω δηλαδή ένα βιβλίο για να κοιτάζω τις εικόνες... Εξάλλου παρακολουθώ τόσα blogs, νομίζω είμαι καλυμμένη :D

  16. It's not really style books that I like to buy...but I do have many, many books on fashion, designers, photographers...I'm very proud of my library I have collected over the years and still love looking at them's really a collection of the history of daughter loves them too!

  17. oh my, i love such books about fashion! I have'n seen the Harper's Bazaar guide yet! Thanks for sharing :)

  18. Hi girls! I love going through Fashion books just like the next girl. Photographs can be so powerful.

    I adore the colorful striped dress, just the way I would style it. COmfortable yet cool.

  19. I love style guide books and other fashion books, specially when they have many photos of inspiration. I think my favourites are the books of fashion's history.

    Nice look!! Perfect fora sunny day! :)


  20. I have few (including Fashion Illustration in your post), but it's kinda funny like each one of them says that the most imporant is your OWN, personal style. ;) X

    P.S. Don’t forget about my new giveaway!

  21. I read few of them but I absolutely recommend The Fashion Babylon- I read it in one day because it is so interesting- all the dirty dishes from fashion world!

  22. i like your cute sundress! and i think just like books on any other topic, it's good to read about style and get other perspectives or tips. since style is so personal though, we should definitely make our own decisions, but the style guides can sometimes help with inspiration. but i had no idea there were so many!

  23. i've never really cared about style books, but then lauren conrad published one, so i'm considering buying it!
    you look great in this dress! so colorful!

  24. I love all those fashion books they're the perfect coffee table decor!! I love your dress so Summery.

  25. I love getting inspiration from other people's looks and style books! Also your zara dress is gorgeous :)
