I Want To Be Her: Book Review

i want to be her

I Want To Be Her. I just finished reading, I Want to Be Her. I purchased it yesterday and couldn’t put it down. The author, Andrea Linett started out as a receptionist with Sassy Magazine and worked her way to being the VP Global Creative Director of Michael Kors. Incidentally a company I would love to collaborate with. This book is a style memoir of sorts, cataloging all the people she admired for their fashion sense, while on her own journey of discovery.

This book is thoroughly entertaining but best of all it took me down memory lane. I fondly remembered the older sister, of a friend that I had in the 3rd grade, who was so cool! She must have been in the 8th grade at the time, so she was ‘totally’ grown up. She had a skirt made up of vintage ties sewn together. Awesome! To this day I still have a soft spot for that skirt.

My other inspiration was my mother. She was a petite woman with a great figure and wonderful sens of style. She always taught me that it was a good thing to be just a little bit vain about oneself. Ahh, the memories of scouring the streets of Madrid for those golden heels, had to be the perfect shade, not to green not too yellow. We searched for hours, finally stumbling upon a shop that literally had an entire room of black shoes and a room of blue shoes and so on…. Yes they had a room of golden shoes and bags. It was truly amazing, I think this is where my love of great shoes began. Then there were our monthly pilgrimages to the Holt Renfrew Last Call Outlet in Toronto. She never left empty handed and always found the gem that everyone else had passed over.

Of course I can’t forget my, sometimes questionable, fashion choices: neon scarves worn as huge bows in my hair, safety pins in my jeans, my biker jacket and army boots worn with floral dresses, blue hair and that chain mail skirt (which may or may not still be hanging in my closet, I admit to nothing). Ahhh, the memories!

This book as inspired me to go through my closet again, re-think some of my choices and perhaps delve into some new styles that I may not have been daring enough to try…….

That sums, I Want To Be Her, up perfectly. The minute you begin reading this book and looking at the wonderful illustrations you are transported into another world. It’s your world and your memories. This is truly a memorable and inspirational read.

Have you read I Want To Be Her? Did you love it?
