Fab Read: The Bombshell Manual of Style

I was buying a birthday card at Papyrus recently when a pair of slim pink legs caught my eye. I had to investigate. The Bombshell Manual of Style by Laren Stover ($13) is a lighthearted read for any gal who is a bombshell or wants to become one. The former can refine her skills on how to dress, make an entrance, where to shop, and so on. The latter must start from the beginning, but oh it will be so much fun.

Stover shares 25 bombshell outfits she's personally road-tested, and dishes about must-have bombshell sleepwear, handbags, and fragrances. The illustrations are done by Ruben Toledo, the same artist who worked on Nina Garcia's books.

This book is one of my favorites!!! It has some good "tips," but at the same time has a quirkiness and dry humor to it. It's not actually a "manual" like you'd expect with the title, but more like a humorous combination of all of her research of The Bombshell... done almost like an animal researcher in the wild. Another great book of hers is Bohemian Manifesto. It is written very similarly, but (obviously) is about the bohemian. There are different types of bohemians that it breaks down into, and you can even take a quiz in the back of the book which tells you which one you are. Both entertaining and informative reads!! (with amazing illustrations)
