A Fashionista's Reading List: Summer 2017

I came across Big Shots while browsing the Urban Outfitters website and I was excited to see a Polaroid photo book that wasn't riddled with industry insiders that I'd never heard of. Instead, you get both candid and posed photos of fashion and entertainment big names to fawn over. 

Thankfully, "wall scouting" is a thing of the past and we can go back to enjoying urban art without thinking about it as an Instagram backdrop. Street Art displays the most renowned and underrated urban street art from around the world. 

The name says it all -- Dandy Lion: The Black Dandy and Street Style. Street style has become so tired that this might be the only saving grace. It's a new way to view streetwear: through the "black dandy" lens.

The Social Life of Kimono by Joanne B. Eicher
I'm not a fashion history buff, by any means, but I love the story of any iconic piece that has changed the industry. The Social Life of Kimono is particularly amazing because it delves into a piece of fashion history that goes beyond the fashion industry's four walls of New York, Paris, London, and Milan.
