I drove all around Toledo, OH looking for this book. Of course, Toledo makes anything trendy or cool as difficult to find as possible. Grace: A Memoir, is an autobiography by Grace Coddington, former model, creative director at Vogue, and all around fascinating person, that I’ve been dying to read over the break. After several stops, I FINALLY found it at a Barnes and Noble on the other end of town.
My take at a book review on a book I’ve yet to read: BRILLIANT!
…or really stupid! :)
What I like so far:
The cover of this book is orange and red. It pops! Who doesn’t love orange?
Strong Redheaded Women:
There aren’t that many that I can recall, except maybe Kathy Griffin (eek)! I like that Grace has a strong opinion. She seems pretty unique.
Each chapter and the inside of the cover is decorated with personal sketches by Grace. They are adorable!
I’ve always been obsessed with Grace’s styling. Her spreads tell an entire story in just one image. It reminds me of good choreography, where you can understand a story just by movement and music.
Obviously, I’m biased to the name. I have one strong-minded thing we call Grace living with me at the moment. Love Ya SIS!

Last year on this date: It’s been fun for me to look back and compare the changes in my life from this time last year.
