Wonder when a baguette became a bag and not just a hunk of bread? (Fendi, 1998.) Or when it became acceptableto wear a tracksuit to the supermarket? (It didn't.) Fishnets at work? How to conceal the misfortune of the cankle? Fashion forecaster Michi answers all. In this stylish primer, she tells it like it is: No one looks good in mustard, unless youre a hot dog. Matching whimsy with brutal honesty, Like I Give a Frock packs fashion illustration and musings into the prettiest package around. Kat Macleod's stunning collages bring Michi's wisdom to life.

This is a beautiful book about insightful, true, amusing observations of fashion and life. Kat Macleod's illustrations are lushiously geogeous and layered. Chloe Quigley is hilarious and so right about so many things. A great little indulgent read, like a bag of mixed lollies. Read full review
