Here is my book! I can't wait for you to see what's inside. I'm talking about style, obviously, shopping, make up, fashion weeks and high heels, but also about. Love Style Life Everyday Book. By Garance Doré. In her first book, Love Style Life , Garance Doré provides a backstage pass into fashion's frontlines, peppered. Here is my book! I mean the cover of my book, that we just received at the Studio. I won't say much more for the moment, except that I am beyond excited to.
My mother is the opposite.
Love Style Life
She wears tight jeans and irons her hair, and every outfit is perfectly thought out. She wraps my head in leopard-print scarves and mismatches her stripes with my polka dots.
I have to wear special shoes to reeducate my feet and save them from being flat. Instead of hiding the shoes, she puts me in light dresses to balance the heaviness with softness.
I love him like there is no tomorrow, and even if it will cost me a lot of money in therapy later on, for the moment all I want is the privilege of spending as much time with him as possible. So I become interested in everything he is into: We talk; he tells me about his tastes. I totally get it! I throw all my dresses away. Dresses are for little girls, anyway. George is that daring, andro-gynous, cool- before-cool-even-existed heroine.
She goes ahead and cuts. The perfectly braided girls in my class look at me with a raised brow and a pinched mouth.
I learn what it means to be different. Of course, he has no idea I exist. I want him to notice me. I guess I already believe in the higher powers of fashion, because I tell myself that the best thing to do is: Copy his style. Skater boy. Baggy jeans.
Chuck Taylors. He still has no clue I exist. Refine my approach. Of course—guys prefer real girls!!! Shift in strategy. I become super girly.
This is a very freeing insight. The moment I figure it out, I meet my first love, a skateboarder.
No, not Marcel. I get a subscription and The Face becomes my bible. I want to be part of this world and, as you know by now, for me that translates into wanting to adopt its style. In Ajaccio, no one understands my style. Les ignorants. As for my mother, she discovers my closet-plundering when she reaches for her Montana coat and finds only a single sleeve I forgot to hide in its place. She shouts. And then she faints. And when she wakes up she locks me out of her closet for the unforeseen future.
I run off in tears, proclaiming that one day Rei Kawakubo will adopt me and everyone will finally be happy, since no one in our family understands me. In other words, I am a teenager.
I move to the South of France to study.
And by that I mean partying, of course. My friend Anne is the best thing that ever happened to me. Our style? Always the same, always matching, every day, all the time. Our dresser? Our friends? I rarely talk about love on the blog just because it involves too many people you know that you're living with or something that's complicated.
I'm talking about friends; I'm talking about all of that. In a book, it's very different. You have the stories that are finished, you have lived it.
So that was a great way to do that, so I don't ever feel like I'm saying too much because to me, the role of a writer is to say those things because we all go through the same great moments, the bad moments, the moments when we're great friends, the moments when we're not such great friends. It happens. I think it's important to talk about these things and also because it comes easily to me. It's not like I have to push myself. All these little things make you realize that people are reading your site and that you have an influence.
I really believe in bringing good energy out there so everything counted, the feelings I had towards people that I was shooting, and all that. So they're not all my besties but they're very welcoming, inspiring women and I like how they live their lives and the way they carry themselves. So I've been kind of picky and they're kind of a group of people that I love and admire a lot. HB: Are you an editor or a builder when it comes to your wardrobe?
