fabulous people

Say no to ho!  While unpacking today I stumbled across one of my favorite books written by the  eclectic and extraordinary creative director of Barney’s New York, Simon Doonan.  Eccentric Glamour is a book about “creating an insanely more fabulous you.”  More than a how-to-dress guide, Eccentric Glamour is a witty and charming chronicle of Simon’s personal fashion adventures, interviews of glamorous eccentrics about their personal style (including Tilda Swinton, Isabel Toledo, and Kelly Wearstler), and some of the all around best advice that leads to just feeling fabulous.

“why the hell wouldn’t you want to be one of the fabulous people, the life enhancers, the people who look interesting and smell luscious and who dare to be gorgeously more fascinating than their neighbors?”

Doonan creates several categories in order to give oneself a framework for creating your personal style- the gypsy, the existentialist and the socialite. While these overlap and have sub categories I find myself snuggled into the gypsy category!  Where do you find youself?
