Nina Garcia's books made me want to change my closet, awakened the fashion stylist-wannabe in me, inspired me to have more fun with what I wear (even on a limited budget). FAR FROM BEING A FASHION EXPERT, I'M SIMPLY A STUDENT OF STYLE. If indeed style is "finding out who you are and who you want to be in the world," then I'm chronicling the discovery through my version of a Little Black Book. I hope this reaches Nina -- Thank you for inspiring me!

Current fashion read: Parisian Chic
It's a style guide by Ines de la Fressange, France's icon of chic; written in collaboration with Elle fashion journalist Sophie Gachet.
Loving the style and beauty tips (and decorating finds!); and the book's uber-chic layout: ala-scrapbook / diary / journal with charming scribbles, drawings and personal snapshots.
My DIY mani matches the book cover's text.
Dress like a Parisan.
Wardrobe musts: LBD, trench coat, diamonds.
