Editorial Reviews

Review

“Full of beautiful images of sartorial inspiration, including collages of hands garnished with jaw-dropping gems, club kids posing in their bedrooms and little old ladies who refuse to hang up the toreador pants.”
T Style
, New York Times
 
“What started as Stylelikeu co-founder Lily Mandelbaum’s personal scrapbook is now an inspirational tome that is much more enthralling than any editorial we’ve ever seen.”
StyleList

 
“The photos are a mix of close-ups of shoes, accessories and tattoos and full-page spreads on a given fashionista in different outfits. The best part is that you could actually dress like these people.”
Chicago Tribune

Most street style guides only feature skinny twenty-something fashionistas, but this book shows that style has no age, sex, color or income bracket. From teens to seniors, men in skirts to girls in shawls, a one-eyed dog and an upside-down cat - it's all here. I got a lot of ideas from this book and I was inspired by the fearlessness of the people I met within its pages. My reactions ranged from "Where did he get those shoes?" to "I hope to be that cool when I get to be her age!" In the forward, Elisa and Lily say, "No matter what one's age, socioeconomic status, body type or ethnicity, style is soulful, immaterial and universally accessible." Right on!

I happen to like street style,so,this book was perfect for me. I found the pictures to be beautiful and interesting.
It's mostly pictures, but,what story they wrote was a interesting and enlightening to me.
If you like different and unusual styles, this is the book for you. I highly recommend this book.

Firstly, I want to say that I have zero affiliation with the publishers or with the authors or anyone involved in the site, I'm just a fan who thoroughly enjoys peering into other people's stylish homes and closets!
That being said, this is a great book! It offers a nice variety of some of their coolest profiles and is great to flip through for all types of inspiration from wardrobe to interior design. It's really great to see an honest portrait of contemporary living that isn't staged by a high priced design firm in some ridiculously expensive and unattainable homes. These are real people (although some very quirky, granted!), in their real homes, the way they really live. And it's wonderful.

The actual size and feel of the book are so nicely done as well. It's substantial without being oversized, and is a nice sized volume overall. The cover is a nice heavy printed almost linen like surface which is gorgeous. I proudly keep this book out with a few others I love for people to flip through when they visit and invariably this one always draws the most attention!

And excellent buy for anyone who loves style and fashion and appreciates individualism, this book explores all of those subjects beautifully!

I'm a bit disappointed in this book but probably because I had other expectations. It's still quite a nice book to flick through, very dense in pictures. Unfortunately, the pictures make much less sense without the original interviews (or at least a summary of it). I loved the closets videos because a lot of what was said was a great source of inspiration. I was also not too bothered about the men because I'm not much sensitive to men's fashion in the first place. So half of the book gathers guys and I would have preferred two separate books, one for the girls, one for the boys and more space made for the text.

I have to say I was more than a little shocked when I received this book today and cracked open the cover. I really enjoy the StylelikeU website. I find it very inspiring. Not everyone featured meshes with my own aesthetics or personal style but it's great to get some new perspectives and be inspired by things you wouldn't normally put together. I was just disappointed at some of the photo choices in this book-some of them focus on very banal details or the photos are dark &/or low quality. Maybe it's just a matter of personal preference but if I had my druthers there would be more photos of people like Elisa Palomino and less photos of dirty boots on a shelf.

FINALLY! A book that celebrates individuals who have a soulful connection to their clothing! Bravo Elisa Goodkind & Lily Mandelbaum for putting together such a curated collection of brilliant tastemakers. Not only am I inspired by the beautiful images, but more so by the words... I love when Adia Trischler says on page 14, "It's so nice to have vintage things around you to remind you of history." The StyleLikeU book reinforces the sincere connection one has to their clothes and leaves any sign of superficial in the dust. I have been carrying around my copy like a treasure, sharing it with anyone who has a second to have a look.
