I spotted the ‘Minimalism in fashion’ book a few months ago in a bookstore downtown and immediately started saving for it. It was going so slow and my piggy bank was almost always empty due to everyday needs like eating, drinking, smoking, going out to lunches, buying “much needed” make-up etc… Then came the fear of it being sold out before I could buy it. Stopping by every week to check if it had sold already became a routine. Month second, I devised a plan to hide it behind other books every time I come, so that no one could see it. We all know people are too lazy to dig out and search for stuff in shops, so this technique has proved to be the right one. I’m guessing this would have gone on for months to come, if it wasn’t for my boyfriend, who knows me oh so well and was probably growing a tad sick of my little bookstore scheming.

It was our anniversary two weeks ago and while he was handing me this rectangular shaped object wrapped in pretty pink paper, he smiled and I knew something was up! I opened the package and there it was – the coveted read I’d been unsuccessfully saving for!

My excitement over this is so real that I can’t wait to start flipping through the pages! Besides some books on design I’m already reading, this will help inspire me so much for creating my collection and building my future portfolio. Let the fun begin!

thank you for this! i’m really trying to get into the minimalism lifestyle and the fashion side of things is something that will naturally follow i hope.

i’ve heard that the book ‘minimalism and fashion’ by elyssa dimant is really good, and appears quite similar to the one you’ve just got!

How nice of your boyfriend! That book seems amazing and perfect for you!
Oh and the coat you asked for is from Mango, it’s in the sale right now and a real bargain. But I’m not sure if it’s still available.. hope I could help :-)

Oh gawd that book looks awesome! Hahahaha I’ve also did that trick before! I noticed there were only around 3 copies left of a book I would die to buy, so I decided to bury it under lots of other books. But unlike lucky you, I had to buy it myself, which was still a pleasure of its own, though. :D

First off, I definitely ordered this book and plan on doing a post on it, I’m so glad that you posted it!
Second, thanks for letting me know about Sheinside. I received a few more comments warning me about them, so instead on ordering the sweatshirt, I bought supplies make my own :)

best,

I’ve had that book on my wishlist for a little while now too, after seeing your photos of what it’s like inside I think I’m definitely going to have to invest in a copy too, such beautiful images & layout.

Oh absolutely get your point about saving up for this one! Every since I flipped these pages in the bookstore I got this one in my mind! but maybe I should put it on my birthday-wishlist, as I am not the type of girl saving money. whoops! Oh and thanks for you sweet comment babe, you are -with no doubt- the most loyal en sweetest follower I got! You are awesome!

I checked this book out of the Brooklyn public library a few months ago and was enchanted by the beauty found in simplicity.
