Fab Read: The Little Dictionary of Fashion

If you've ever hankered for style advice from a couturier, look no further. Christian Dior himself reveals that he abhors women who wear high heels with slacks, along with other style bites, in The Little Dictionary of Fashion: A Guide to Dress Sense for Every Woman ($14), which was originally published in 1954.

The handbag-sized book, which is fully illustrated and filled with fun facts like Dior finding the color purple to be "a hue full of danger," was recently republished to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Dior's famous "New Look" collection.

No heels & slacks? Obviously he doesn't know how much it sucks to be 5'3" with big hips. I need every elongating trick in the book.

Definitely a must-have. But I wonder why slacks and heels don't mix?

I happen to agree with Dior. I think purple is a dangerous color, too, and I find it ironic that so many women love to wear that color.
