Making Savings on your Style Books Wishlist

Sunday morning’s have a bit of a ritual attached to them. I try to get at least a bit of a lie-in, and then I curl up on the sofa with a cup of tea and one of my favourite style books, the sort of book where you can just pour over the pictures and not even have to stretch to reading if you just want to be lazy.


One of the places I always use when I’m sourcing fashion books is Amazon. It has an enormous selection of books, including out of print and hard to find, rare editions. Plus, as well as looking in the Amazon section, you can also pick up second hand editions through the sellers in the Amazon Marketplace. If you are in the US, you can make your purchases even cheaper by using Groupon, which has a whole section devoted to Amazon Promo codes. Currently it is listing 137 different codes which range from money off offers, to free shipping, along with more specific promotions.

My current to read list includes a fabulous book looking at 1920s style, a Chanel style book by the amazing fashion illustrator Megan Hess (I’m totally obsessed with her work) and ‘Inside Vogue’ by former Vogue editor Alexandra Shulman, which is her account of the 100th year anniversary of British Vogue. (I watched the documentary so was interested to read her account.)

As it is Sunday morning, the hubby has just made me a cup of tea and I’ve got a book to catch up with.

Happy Sunday all!

  1. I’ve always been terrible with my fashion sense… But my wife does pretty much exactly what you’ve mentioned! And she always looks great! Maybe I should start doing the same, haha

  2. We’ve been recently getting books for the new house, and have been picking up some right bargains on Amazon for under a £1. We’ve seen some books in shops at like £20+ and found one on amazon for 99p bargain 🙂

  3. Ooh a cup of tea made for you and a good book on a Sunday morning – sounds perfect to me! 🙂

  4. Great post and lots of lovely books here! I can’t wait until my kids are a bit older and stay in bed past 6am so I can grab a lie in and find time to read again lol! x
