style a to zoe

Love her or hate her, it is not new knowledge that Rachel Zoe is the driving force behind many of today’s trends. From celebrities like Cameron Diaz and Lindsay Lohan to Salma Hayek, Zoe decides what is the best look and the rest of the world scavengers to attain that look. Zoe has a profound influence and impact on the fashion world. The dress that you went out to buy, the shoes you yearned for, the oversized sunglasses you had to have, were all catapulted from what Zoe decided was hot.

Rachel Zoe wanted to share her fashion tips and secrets with the world, writing the book Style A to Zoe: The Art of Fashion, Beauty, & Everything Glamour. If you are looking for this book to turn you into a Lindsay Lohan, Mischa Barton, or even Rachel Zoe, don’t expect that. But do expect this book to help you pave your way and your style. The first tip Zoe gives is the most important piece of advice; ‘know thyself and create your own look’. Don’t buy something because you saw it on a celebrity, buy it because it looks good on you and fits your style. What you all will love is that Rachel Zoe depends on accessories to make our break your outfit, she believes accessories are more important than clothes. That statement alone lured me in, because it is the statement I live by and agree with. As far as handbags go, Zoe is a firm believer in sticking to a quality classic rather than a logo-splattered bag. Thumbs up from me thus far!

The book proceeds to lead you through her tips, yet the idea that rings out loud and clear is to wear what you like, feel comfortable in your skin, and don’t be afraid to be bold and daring. If you buy a quirky and in-your-face dress, wear it. Carry yourself with confidence and you will project an image of confidence in your skin. The book does not make you into something that you are not, rather it guides you to find your sense of style and what works for you best. Rachel finishes the book off with an important statement; The meaning of life is living it.

This book was a fun read, which illustrates Zoe’s list of must haves but allows you to tweak your style along the way. I plan on keeping this book on my coffee table for some time, offering guests to my home a conversation piece from one of the most influential icons in the fashion world.

Buy the book at Amazon for $16.49.

  • eunice

    I will never ever buy that book… EVER. Personally I would not like to be a meth induced skeleton wearing super long dresses with bling.

    No thank you.

  • Jahpson

    that old looking bag is not a good stylist in my opinion. you mean to tell me she is behind the famous dumpster dressers Mary Kate and Ashley or Nicole Ritchie’s horrible choices [a real wannabe]? Mischa Barton? the only thing she ever wears thats cute is Chanel Handbags, i dont need a stylist to tell me to wear that. lol

    Thanks but no thanks Rachel, but the bohemian anorexic dripped in luxury look is not cute.

    Call me crazy, but I think what you choose to buy is your own style! lol

    Shut up, stupid girls.

    You have no sense of fashion or style.


    Wintour girl.

  • Abbey

    I agree with Anna.
    Either all of you girls are 50 something year old prudes
    or have no sense of fashion or style whatsoever.
    Rachel Zoe’s work is amazing, she does something most people get wrong every day and does it well.
    Yes she may be thin, but are you going to judge her work on that?
    How many celebrities in Hollywood are too thin?
    I have this book and it is useful, witty, and essential.


  • Mina

    Amen to that!! You simpleton hags who rest on stylishness on four million levels are hattin’t on Rachel Zoe. She rocks!!! Stop eating fast food and go on a diet. Then maybe you can even dream about donning one of her selected garbs!

  • guccicoo

    Ok then I agree with Abbey. I don’t have the book yet but I plan on getting it.

  • e

    rachel zoe loves what she does. she is fucking devoted to her clients and to the fashion world. that is why she is so skinny and aging so fast. the stress. she is so inspirational, she works so hard and is totally fabulous. i would die to have her job. people who think shes bad or whatever have no concept of style.

  • Apol

    i agree to E, she is devoted in her work and very inspirational. she does her work very diligently and clean. unlike others who don’t finish their work and jsut leave it as it is. She, makes corrections and makes it BETTER. :D
