I like her clothing designs, but she should stick to just talking fashion. This "Law of Attraction" junk doesn't hold water. It's the story that the "winners" of our society tell about just how special they are and the universe is aligning things their waya bunch of bs
I liked this, surprisingly. Kim Kardashian West recommended it. I thought I'd spend the whole weekend watching The Force Awakens on repeat but I ended up keeping only an eye on that while I read this instead. I share some stylistic instincts with RR (though I lack the execution) but reading her thoughts on editing a wardrobe and making investments and representing yourself well through style seemed nice to me. My mom's college graduation gift to me was an interview outfit and I think I inherited [...]
I have always been a sucker for any books on fashion and style. I have amassed quite a collection over the years and most are repeats of the same tips - know your body shape, know your colors, get the basics (little black dress, white Oxford shirt, etc), and many variations on those themes. Rachel Roy's book goes in a different direction and one I liked very much - dress for you and you alone and don't be afraid to take fashion chances. She peppers her book with lots of personal stories on fashi [...]
A lot of very good advice on fashion and style from a designer with a strong sense of self and confidence in one's vision. One of the reasons this book works is that the author spent more time focusing on inspiring a sense of intuitive, ageless and timeless style, instead of telling us about the current trendswagons that we should be hopping on. The book would have worked better with more illustrations and "show me instead of tell me" moments, but generally, a good starting point to explore the [...]
Very enjoyable book on fashion, style, and life. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed reading this book. Thoughtful reminders on how to craft a style and look that says who you are and projects the life you aspire to live.
It is a great read! Simple and elegant graphics makes it fun and engaging. Tones of information on developing your own styles and wear what would make you feel great and confident. Loved it.
I loved it. Design Your Life had me thinking about my own life and how I could wear clothing to succeed in the industry I want to be in. I started using Pinterest more to come up with ideas and make a digital vision board until I can actually make one for my home and I have to say it has helped me with my own personal goals. I hope I can by it soon and have it as a guide as I continue to move forward in my career.
As someone who is somewhat fashion challenged, this book gives great insight and ideas for creating a versatile, sustainable wardrobe. Roy uses her personal style choices to give examples of how and why to make certain fashion choices, from apparel to shoes to accessories. I definitely have a better idea now of how to build a great wardrobe. I received a copy from First Reads in return for an honest review.
I won this in a giveaway! A quick, fun, & diverse read that anyone would want to checkout! I love Rachel Roy and how she empowers you to be anything you want; including fashion tips that benefit you at any age!
This was a library book that I had to keep requesting. It didn't take as long as it looks on when I started to when I finish. It was an interesting read to see how someone worked hard for what she wanted. So I say follow are dreams!
Rachel Roy offered some great tips in her book about adding some signature wardrobe items and how to wear them. I enjoyed the book since I'm into fashion. I gained a new perspective how fashion styling and some useful new wardrobe tips to follow.
