Book Description

Nov. 13 2010
The most exciting innovations in fashion are happening off the runway and recorded in the online diaries of trend-setters from around the world.
The real movers and shakers in the fashion world aren't sitting in the front rows of runway shows or presenting their collections during fashion week. They are flipping through the racks of vintage stores, plundering their parents' closets, and scouring eBay for shoes. They are also blogging about their ideas and finds on the web--part of a complex network that is a breeding ground for ideas for the fashion industry. Style Diaries features nearly fifty of today's most compelling fashion bloggers in colorful spreads that reveal who they are, what they wear, and how they feel about fashion. Fully illustrated, this bookshowcases each subject's personal style; and the bloggers' answers to questions such as "What is the best purchase you ever made?" "What is something that you would never wear?""How do you get dressed in the morning and before a night out?" are as insightful as they are fun to read. Style Diaries offers readers access to a vibrant community of interesting, intelligent people who may very well be the most influential forces behind tomorrow's trends.

3.0 out of 5 stars Stylish and wordless everything but the blog Oct. 19 2011
Format:Paperback
Hey style mavens. This book is about everything but the blogging. The subjects are extremely stylish and each profile tells you a little about where the blogger lives and what motivates their style in a few sentences. Don't expect to learn anything about style blogs through this book. This diary is a series of introductions. Visiting each subject's blog gives you an entirely more satisfying and unique experience. So, The Style Diaries provides a great index of style blog addresses but it is a lame attempt at conveying a sense of the variety of style blogs out there. If you have an interest or hunger for style blogs this is a great appetizer, but it is not nearly enough for a meal.

3.0 out of 5 stars VERY VISUAL, NOT A BOOK OF WORDS Dec 13 2011
By J. Nishimitsu - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As I've said in the title, this book is very visual-- which can be a good thing, if that's what you're looking for. It's packed with photos of fashion bloggers in their signature outfits. And I mean LOTS of photos.

My first reaction when I took it out of the Amazon.com box was, "ummmm...that's it? where's the words" I eventually found them-- in the form of bullet points with facts about each blogger. "I'm still afraid of the dark", "I love homemade paella" etc. etc. That was a little disappointing, I thought there might be a focus on fashion related questions like, "what's your go-to accessory", "where do you find inspiration for your style..." and don't get me wrong there are these types of questions-- you just have to dig around for them amongst the random facts.

I can appreciate the idea of the book though-- it's interesting to take a peek into the lives of stylish people...and I get it, (street) fashion is not about rules and guidelines. I guess it was just far from what I expected it to be so it left more to be desired.

Great for inspiration, though you could just search fashion blogs on the internet and find similar pictures with similar outfits...

It's okay, and I will probably grow to like it more...
