A Vocabulary of Style,

If you know me, you probably already know about my obsession with books. I'll read anything novels, biographies, essays, short stories, guides, anything.
Pair that with my attraction to all things aesthetically pleasing and you have one girl with a major fixation on fashion books.

Today I'm going to share with you one of my very favourites,
A 21st birthday gift from my Grandparent's, 


Without doubt one of the most influential - year's ahead of her time - legendary fashion house - blah blah blah.
I'm sorry, but you've heard it all before - I know you just want me to show you some of my favourite pretty pictures from the tome.

So here they are,
