Book Review - "The Glitter Plan" by Pamela Skaist-Levy and Gela Nash-Taylor (#6 - 2015)


A breezy read about how Pam & Gela started the phenomenon that was Juicy Couture in the early '00's.  Part entrepreneurial guide, part biography and part history of Juicy Couture, it was really a fascinating look into how these two ladies created a global powerhouse brand by really just trusting their guts and filling a niche.  I was particularly intrigued about how/why they left the company after they sold it and their thoughts about where Juicy is now (at Kohl's), as well as their new line Pam & Gela.  I'm no entrepreneur by any means, but I love reading about how people build companies/brands, it's fascinating!  This book may be a bit oversimplified, but I still loved it!

Book Review - "A Hundred Summers" by Beatriz Williams (#5 - 2015)


A Hundred Summers by Beatriz Williams

In 1931 two socialites (friends since they were children, but really don't have that much in common) go and watch a college football game.  Lily, the main character, meets Nick who played in the game and it was love at first sight.  Nick is Jewish and Lily's family absolutely insists they end the relationship.  Budgie, her friend (or is it frenemy) comes in and out of the story, throwing in wrenches here and there.  Look, here's the bottom line, I detested this book.  There, I said it.  I can't believe it's gotten such good reviews on Amazon (which is part of the reason I hunted it down at the library).  None of the characters are likable, the author uses the word "limbs" to the point where I wanted to throw the book against the wall.  I kept reading because I kept thinking it would get better - spoiler alert - it never does.  Add to that a deeply unsatisfying ending and I would recommend you skip this one!

Spring 2015 Trend - White

Lots of white on the Spring runways, head-to-toe, in most cases. This trend goes hand-in-hand with tomorrow's trend as well!
