9780399170836: Always Pack a Party Dress: And Other Lessons Learned From a (Half) Life in Fashion

Author of the bestselling I Love Your Style Amanda Brooks shares her personal stories, and sartorial highs and lows, from a life in fashion, with beautiful, eclectic, and inspired photographs throughout.

An authentic voice in the world of style and how-to books, Amanda Brooks, with her unique and enviable yet accessible style, has inspired thousands of women of all ages to find their own personal look and explore their identity through the clothes they love to wear.

In the past twenty years, Brooks has worked as a photo assistant for Patrick Demarchelier, a “gallerina” at the Gagosian Gallery, and at various fashion posts, before finding her dream job as fashion director for Barneys New York. Along the way—and wearing more than a few of the kinds of outfits we’ve all regretted at one point or another—Brooks has discovered the key to creating her personal style, combining influences as wide-ranging as childhood prep school, Grateful Dead concerts, contemporary artists, pop culture, and her current home outside of the fashion bubble, a farm where she lives with her family (and a host of animals) in England.

Brooks recalls her early career aspirations and explores the evolution of her own personal style in stories of successes and failures alike, and offers fashion and beauty tips and inspiring photographs throughout. Always Pack a Party Dress is a must-read for high fashion or street style aficionados. In this gorgeously produced gift book, Brooks shares her expertise and insider view with warm, candid, and witty prose.

Review:

“Amanda Brooks is one of those rare birds—perfectly imperfect, not overly considered, impossibly real and humble. While flipping through the pages of this book, I realized her style is just that: her style.”—Jenna Lyons

“Amanda Brooks is innately chic. Her new book is as smart and original as she is.” —Tory Burch

“Amanda Brooks is one of the best-dressed women I know, and she maintains a wonderful sense of humor about style. She understands the ins and outs of the fashion and the industry, yet doesn’t let them dictate who she is. She’s inspiring and unique, and I’m so happy that she shares what she’s learned in this book!”—Garance Doré

“For young women who want to work in the world of fashion and beauty, or anyone who simply just loves it, Amanda’s book is the dream-come-true told with sweetness and honesty.”—Delia Ephron

“From the pages of Vogue to the front rows of Paris to her current country-girl home in rural England, Amanda Brooks’s exciting life has encompassed the full sartorial spectrum. In Always Pack a Party Dress, clothes become the outer reflection of the private inner world, and her wise and practical meditations on style are really metaphors for how to live authentically and well.”—Amy Astley

“As someone who knows all too well the adrenaline-charged fashion scene from New York to Paris and beyond, as well as the simple joys of home and family life, I relished every page of Always Pack a Party Dress. Amanda beautifully untangles and analyzes all aspects of her twenty years in fashion, an act as thoughtful and generous as it is inspiring.”—Laura Bailey

“Amanda Brooks is the true American glamour girl! In her must-read book she offers candid style and career advice and, just as important, shows readers that a sense of humor and self-discovery is much more gratifying than striving for perfection.”—Diane von Furstenberg

“A fashion maven shares her secrets....[readers] will find much useful advice in this bright and breezy confection....Filled with tips on hair, makeup, nails, lips, shopping, packing, and smiling for photographs, this book will thrill readers for whom Christian Louboutin is a household god."Kirkus

“[T]his colorful, savvy volume covers material from why women should always know how to do their own hair to how to set up a consulting business.”Women's Wear Daily
