I can't get enough of this charming little jewel, and luckily I found the IWANTTOBEHER.COM website so I can get more, more, more from Andrea Linnet (in the wake of her leaving Lucky magazine along with Kim France, which has since gone downhill :-(...)
This "fashion memoir" makes you THINK and opens your "editorial eye" to the street style around you...although I am 51, I can vividly recall those who influenced me through childhood, college, and later years, all the way back to watching my mother style her hair into a "Jackie" bouffant with Alberto V05 hairspray that she packed into her Samsonite train case for weekend trips...It will make you remember those you admired and envied and you'll probably pull out your yearbooks for a look back at your local style goddesses and icons, along with the hair, clothing, and makeup trends! Like smelling a perfume you used to wear, this little gem will give you a wonderful "deja vu".
Besides enjoying Andrea's vignettes, you'll look at acquaintences and strangers in a new way...what do you see that you like? You'll learn to assimilate what you like in others and mix it up into your own style...you are what you read, you are what you eat, you are what you see!
Much more inspiring that a book full of celebrities with endless bank accounts, you'll want to go through your closet with a whole new attitude...it makes you appreciate all the ladies who've made you "YOU" along the way...and look forward to all the ladies who'll cross your path in the days ahead!!!
