Elegant Inspiration

This book is really a darling read. The book itself is so cute - the size of it is as the title states, "Little". It is the perfect size for the purse if you want to take the book with you wherever you go as a constant reminder of how to incorporate elegance into your life. You will be able to read the entire book in just a few hours. I really learned some great ways of how to look at life and to not only achieve elegance but happiness as well. Finding inspiration from people (Audrey Hepburn, Jackie O, Coco Chanel, etc) or things (like pearls, the little black dress, architecture, art, etc) we find elegant and the beauty of the world around us truly helps us to find happiness and elegance in our lives. I really loved the focus on inspiration. The book also had some great tips on building a classy, elegant wardrobe. Simplicity is a key theme to incorporating elegance into your wardrobe and your home. If you want a nice shorter read on elegance that has a little to say on a broad range of topics or if you enjoy reading books of this sort, I think you will enjoy this book as I have.

An Introduction to Style

"A truly elegant taste is generally accompanied by excellence of heart." ~ Henry Fielding Looking at life from a different perspective is always sure to bring on new challenges and surprises. So what if you've been ignoring this side of yourself for the last 20 years? There is always time to reorganize your day so you can sip tea in bed in the morning instead of rushing about feeling frazzled. This book shows you how to enhance your life instead of letting life lead you wherever it may. Want to take time for long baths? Organize them into your life. As the author notes: "Living elegantly must be achieved through experience." It seems a worthy goal, but where to start? The chapters include: What is Elegance? Wardrobe Rules Accessorize! All that Glitters Bare Elegance Scentsations Organizing Principles Home, Elegant Home Elegant Entertaining Shabby Chic The Write Stuff Beauty from the Inside Out Elegant Findings Within these intriguing little chapters you can find out about the top ten items every woman should have in her closet. The section on lingerie is fun and statistics and secrets throughout add fun to various topics. How should you take care of pearls? Should you use hairspray and perfume "before" or "after" you put on pearls. These are of course things a girl must know, because at any point in time the man of your dreams may buy you some. Who would want to be clueless and ruin them? Spa Girl types will love the "Bare Elegance" chapter, although you probably will know most of this by the time you are 25. This section serves as a refresher course in caring for yourself, no matter what. "Scentsations" is an introduction to perfumes and then it leads into a discussion about candles, room sprays, incense, scented papers and essential oils. I can think of about four people right this very minute who would love to read the "Purging your Purse" chapter. Just yesterday I had to sort through my purse to find my keys. Now the "If Your Walls Could Talk" section says your home reveals your self-portrait. Feng Shui is briefly introduced, but the focus is more on clearing out the clutter room by room. After your home is all organized, you may want to throw a party. An especially brief section could be explored in more detail. Ideas about how to live a more elegant life becomes even more practical when you read through the 30 days of elegant ideas. Day 4: Write a note instead of sending an e-mail. Day 11: Read a Poem Day 21: Buy someone else a gift, for no reason The last chapter on saying goodbye has a lot of wisdom, although at times I think that people who keep saying they are really busy or tired should just be more honest and say what they really mean. It would save us all a lot of annoyance and confusion. This book says to end a friendship, allow it to run its course. That might be a good idea if you have the time to put up with someone's abuse. If not, I say moving to say New Zealand might be a good option. The Little Pink Books

Helpful tips

This has helpful information in a nice small, concise form. Would be a great gift to a recent college graduate. However, I didn't care for the many references to the show "Sex and the City". I don't find the characters on that show to be good examples of elegance.
