With every beauty and fashion look, there comes an object or memory of inspiration from behind it.
Whenever our creative minds source colours, patterns and textures that we might not usually go for, we’ve usually seen something consciously or subconsciously that inspires us to go for that look.
When you’re not feeling creative or feeling like you may need a little help or just want some great reading material that you feel is actually going to help or influence your life, reach for a good book.
Fashion, style, beauty and beautiful designs are great to look at on the internet, but nothing can compare to the elegance of a book, especially if it’s a hard cover. Coffee table books look completely fabulous and can give you an insight to fashion and beauty that you had never considered before, so if you’re mad about fashion or beauty, these are the books to add to your wishlist.
