From the Publisher
"You can't have depths without surfaces," says Linda Grant in her
lively and provocative new book, The thoughtful
a thinking woman's guide to what we wear.
For centuries, an interest in clothes has been dismissed as the
trivial pursuit of vain, empty-headed women. Yet, clothes matter,
whether you are interested in fashion or not, because how we choose
to dress defines who we are. How we look and what we wear tells a
story. Some stories are simple, like the teenager trying to fit in,
or the woman turning fifty renouncing invisibility. Some are
profound, like that of the immigrant who arrives in a new country
and works to blend in by changing the way she dresses, or of the
woman whose hat saved her life in Nazi Germany.
The Thoughtful Dresser celebrates the pleasure of
adornment and is an elegant meditation on our relationship with
what we wear and the significance of clothes as the most intimate
but also public expressions of our identity.
About the Book
"The Thoughtful Dresser" is a thinking woman's guide to our relationship with what we wear: why we want to look our best and why it matters.
