The Thoughtful Dresser (English Edition) Kindle电子书
A good handbag makes the outfit. Only the rich can afford cheap shoes. The only thing worse than being skint is looking as if you're skint.'
For centuries, an interest in clothes has been dismissed as the trivial pursuit of vain empty-headed women. Yet, clothes matter, whether you are interested in fashion or not because what we choose to dress ourselves in defines our identity. For the immigrant arriving in a new country to the teenager who needs to be part of the fashion pack or the woman turning forty who must reassess her wardrobe, the truth is that how we look and what we wear, tells a story.

THE THOUGHTFUL DRESSER tells us how a woman's hat saved her life in Nazi Germany, looks at the role of department stores in giving women a public place outside the home, savours the sheer joy of finding the right dress.

Page 33 "Trying to put together a fashionable outfit and make up your face was part of the war effort." And the effect (p37) that lipstick had on the women caught up in the war and camps who had suffered so much ..."..at last someone had done something to make them individuals again: they were someone, no longer merely the number tattooed on the arm."
Page 121 - When looking at old photos of yourself and wondering who those people are 'But I have never not remembered or recognised what I was wearing.'
There is lots of humour and history of designers the author has met and of the story of one designer who, in a prisoner of war camp at age 12 tore off the bottom of the hem of her uniform to make a bow around her bald head so she could 'look pretty.'
I bought the book after reading the great newspaper write up, and first getting it from the library - by page 30 - I knew it was a keeper and bought it. Julie
Grant writes well, and if you love clothes I'm sure you will enjoy her book.
