Today’s Wall Street Journal has some great recommended summer style reads. If you haven’t seen the article, click here to check it out. Summer time is often the time I catch up on my reading list. It’s a great time to just settle into a comfy chair and enjoy a good story.
Some of my personal favorites made the list. They are : Michelle Style and Bringing Home the Birkin. The WSJ has good taste! Some of you may recall that we interviewed the author of Bringing Home the Birkin a few months ago on the blog. We also gave a copy of the book away to our readers. Lucky The Recessionista reader Susan was our winner! I loved the humor of the book, and how its author Mr. Tonello was able to crack the “Birkin” wait lists to pick up bags for his clients. The book is going to paperback this week, and is for sale on Amazon, so you might want to give it a look!
I haven’t read or heard of the book “Why She Buys, The New Strategy for Reaching the World’s Most Powerful Consumers” (Crown Business, $26 ), but I am putting that one on my summer reading list.
As for Michelle Style, what can I say? I am always interested to see what the divine Mrs. Obama is wearing. I’m still lusting after her Tracy Feith Hawaiian Luau Dress. The search is on for me to find this for less than the list price of $1,500.00 !!! Stay tuned.
