On the Agenda: Learning from the Greats - Audrey and Coco

There are 2 books that I need to add to my reading list. Summer is coming, and I always like to have light reads to get me through.

The Gospel According to Coco Chanel by Karen Karbo. In this book, Karen Karbo explores Chanel’s philosophy ranging from style to passion, from money and success to femininity and living life on your own terms. Coco defined class. Everytime you think about the word Chanel you think elegance and grace. I simply have to read the book and get inspired to not only improve my wardrobe, but enhance my lifestyle. You can purchase the book at Amazon.

How to be a Hepburn in a Hilton World by Jordan Christy. The title simply grabs me, not to mention I am a huge Audrey Hepburn fan. I think in this day and age, sophistication is replaced with sex appeal. I am interested in reading how Jordan covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent, and fun while retaining values and morals. You can also purchase the book at Amazon.
