Charlotte Smith, author of Dreaming of Dior: Every Dress Tells a Story ($17), is one fortunate gal. Get this: Her American Quaker grandmother had a passion for vintage clothing and gathered pieces from greats like Dior, Chanel, Vionnet, Galanos, and more throughout her life. At the age of 87, she decided to pass on her treasures to her granddaughter. In this book, Charlotte showcases her grandmother's grand collection with illustrations, including notes that detail the stories that revolve around each dress. Sounds magical!
