As you can see I've gotten 3 fabulous new fashion books filled with page after page of fashion history, style icons and of course very chic clothing and accessories. The first book shown is called "The Golden Age of Couture". It is about the couture clothing and accessories in Paris and London. I was stunned by the phenomenal clothes in this book from designers like Cristobal Balenciaga and Pierre Balmain. The second book called "Fabulous Frocks" (my favorite) is mostly about dresses throughout history, fashion icons and modern day runway shows. Last but not least, "Christan Lacroix on Fashion". This book is mostly pictures of beautiful clothes that have a timeline from around 1780-2007. The pictures and sets are fantastic. All of these books are amazing and I think anyone interested in fashion should own at least one of them. I would like to thank my very generous new friends who gave these books to me.

p.s The most time I've ever put into a post!
