I have great friends. Yes. My best friend send me a gift – a fantastic book named “Der perfekte Kleiderschrank” (The One Hundred: An A-to-Z Guide to the 100 Items Every Stylish Woman Must Own). My first thought was: “Jesus, that’s a sign. You need new clothes. It’s a discreetly hint by your best friend.” Nope, the book is the best guideline for a perfect wardrobe. I devoured the book and I love it. Now when I step into a boutique, I remember the different chapters about A-Line Dresses, Blazers, Converse, Denim Jackets, Hobo Bags, Little Black dresses, Mary Janes, Pucci, Silk Scarfs, Sunhats, Trench or Wellington Boots.
More than 100 pieces of clothes, things in your bag and accessorize you should have before you buy anything else. During my reading of the book, I created a list in my mind. Is there anything, what I have? Do I really have so few basics? Yes – a sad realization. I need more basics. Some things like converse, Flip-Flops, Chanel No.5, Silkes, Clutches or Balerinas are in my wardrobe available. But other things like Bangles, Brooches, Sandals, Aviators, Vintage are not in sight.
There are a lot of things I put on this virtual shopping list. If you ever ask yourself “what are the fashion and lifestyle basics I need” you should read this book. If you need a piece of advice which brand is the best for a hobo bag, you should read this book. If you like fantastic old movies, you should read this book. If you’re looking out for some lifestyle quotes, you should read this book.
The haptic of this book is wonderful. They used different materials and prints, it feels really very good. I love the drawings of Ruben Toledo. They are absoluty beautiful and you can have a look inside the book at Mosaik Verlag.
