Glamour. Flair. Style. Panache. Call it what you will, the women who feature in this collection of interviews and essays on style from Clare Press, have it in spades. Clare, one of Australia's most accomplished fashion writers, has collected advice on how to live well from women who know icons such as Diana Vreeland, Wallis Simpson and Elsie de Wolfe, as well as her favourite local style-setters and chicest friends. Whether you want tips on how to shop, how to host (and dress for) an indulgent afternoon tea, how to choose the perfect gift or how to live lavishly on a limited budget, you will find them here, along with timeless words of wisdom on subjects such as why manners matter and the joys of fine lingerie. Interspersed with Clare's own thoughts on clothes and what they mean to us, and beautifully photographed, this book is a celebration of all things chic and delicious. In Clare's opinion, the dressing table is a 'licence to embrace sheer undisguised prettiness'. Why not join her?
