Amanda Brooks wrote not only one, but two of my favorite books. I read I Love Your Style a solid eight years ago and gleaned so much from her insights. The reference photos she included are absolutely amazing. 10/10 recommend her book.
Even more so, I recommend Always Pack a Party Dress; a title taken from a lesson she learned the hard way when she found herself on a location shoot in Miami and upon being invited to a party hosted by Madonna, did not have a dress to wear. Ever the resourceful stylista, Amanda found a solution and proceeded to attend the Material Girl’s party. I read this book while waiting on a train in New York, throughout the train ride from New York to Philadelphia, and after I made it home. Truly a fantastic memoir only to be matched by her fantastic style.
