On My Bookshelf: Grace: A Memoir

From the moment I saw Grace Coddington in, "The September Issue," I was immediately intrigued. Here is a woman, who knows the ins and outs of the fashion industry, and who works for, and with, Anna Wintour every single day. After watching the documentary, I was left with the impression that she was real and, dare I say, down to earth, two things that can be very difficult to find 

I became giddy with anticipation when I heard Grace was writing a memoir. When the book was released last November, I immediately threw my kindle aside and ordered myself the real, hardcover book (shocking!). In the days of kindles, nooks, and iPads, a splurge on a hardcover book does not happen everyday. But for this memoir, for the original photos and illustrations found inside, and for Grace, the little splurge was totally worth it.

  1. Hello. Kim, with OH sweet joy sent me. Thanks for the book suggestion. Reading is my favorite thing.

  2. I just finished this book as well, I was said to see the last page come. It was a little too many names of models and photographers I've never heard of, but I loved the more personal stories and especially hearing about her time at American Vogue.

  3. I absolutely loved this book! I read it in like one day :)

  4. I loved this book. It was so interesting to read about Grace's life, especially her time at Vogue!
