Today I pleased to be closing the blog tour for COCO Rules, take a look below to find out more about the book that re-imagaines the iconic quotes of CoCo Chanel. Thanks first to O’Mara Books and Love Books Tours for inviting me to review and for a copy of the book.
Coco Rules takes 30 quotes from the inimitable Coco Chanel and translates them into modern, practical style rules to live by.
With her trademark acerbic wit and no-nonsense attitude, Coco Chanel has always been a wonderfully entertaining source on matters of life and style. Coco Rules gathers her words of wisdom on both fashion and empowerment and uses them to provide solutions to many of the style-based conundrums you might encounter, as well as inspiration on how to be the very best version of yourself – strong, fearless and confident – no matter what you wear.
Written by acclaimed fashion journalist Katherine Ormerod, each rule is accompanied by a bold and stylish illustration from Carolina Melis.
Stylish and fun to read and look at, it’s book that readers can come back to time and time again. It’s wise, authentic and quick. Each page totally stands out with graphic and short, snappy text about each heading from “You’re a one off, so quit trying to change yourself to be like someone else” to “It’s not just about the clothes” to “Audacity and adventure are always attractive assets” to “high heels are a good idea – but only if you can walk in the.” to “Wear clothes by living by your own rules” and so much more, each topic lasting a couple of snappy pages of what lies behind the headings from beauty of your inner and outer self, shows, perfume, make up, clothes, accessories. They’re all covered with something wise, inspirational and advice, all based one style icon and pioneer – CoCo Chanel.
With a stylish, striking cover to go with stylish content, this is a great read for fashionistas and those who have their unique style or just curious about fashion and their own inner and outer self.
