Fashion Reads- Diane: A Signature Life

If you know me at all then you know that i have a deep love for Diane von Furstenberg. Her memoir, Diane: A Signature Life, is in my list of top ten favorite books. Whether you like fashion or not ( if not then I don't know what you're doing here) this is a great read. She married a prince, ruled a fashion empire and started a family all before the age of thirty. This book tells the story of a fashion star in the making, a downfall and a sudden comeback.  This book holds good advice for any young designer looking to make their way in the fashion industry. Von Furstenberg honestly shares her mistakes and successes and off course talks  in great detail of "the wrap", the famous style of dress that catapulted her into fashion fame.

 And while we are the D.V.F. train here are some of the current covetables from her fall collection, you know the stuff I'll be looking for on the Saks Black Friday sale's rack!


70's geometric, enough said. 

Where would I wear this? To the disco of course!

Are these not Mary Tyler Moore shoes!

Buy it for me and I swear I'll wear it!
