Originally published in 1975, "Cheap Chic" has been brought back with a forward by Tim Gunn.
It is amazing how relevant the book and style advice remains. It was considered cutting edge when first published but now you would see the fashion ideas and advice everywhere. Buy basics and have a fairly minimal wardrobe. Shop anywhere from high end boutiques to thrift shops.
I enjoyed the "vintage" photos. Most of them show outfits you would very likely see on the street today.
Apparently "Cheap Chic" has long been a touchstone for fashion writers and now a fashion bloggers. Original copies sell for hundreds of dollars I understand.
I enjoyed the book but most of all I was astonished by how it felt as though it could have been written yesterday.
Anyone familiar with either the original or the reissued book?
