Shoestring Chic!

After much illustrating and writing over the past year or so (often with a toddler in tow) I am pleased to see that my other baby, a book about style on a budget, is out! Titled 'Shoestring Chic' the book includes 101 tips on style for less with accompanying illustrations. Personally I absolutely enjoyed writing and illustrating this book as I certainly believe that money does not buy style...

I was also lucky enough to have such wonderful style mavens such as Collette Dinnigan, Lulu Guinness, Sass & Bide, Gail Elliott, and Deborah Lloyd of Kate Spade contribute some lovely words of wisdom to Shoestring Chic...

Here are some images from the book...

Shoestring Chic is available on Amazon.com in the US and UK, and Angus and Robertson in Australia...
