Life Dressing

This weekend I attended a signing for a wonderful book starring,” The Idiosyncratic Fashionistas” Illustrator, Joana Avillez pays tribute to the style and humor of this wonderful fashion duo, in her book entitled, Life Dressing. I hope to feature some of Joana’s incredible work on Advanced Style in the near future, but in the mean time, check out Joana’s other illustrations HERE. Jean and Valerie will also have a special feature in my book coming out April 17, 2012 .

    The purple coat is probably a handknit. It was designed by Kaffe Fassett, an iconic UK knitting designer, in the 80s. I've never seen one that looked so cool on a body!
