If you were a rock fan back then, you might have fallen in love with the Dazzle Dolls and their amazing music and style. Their original member, Lisa Kramer, went on to fame as an artist and fashion designer. Her musical influences include such diverse artists as the Who's Tommy, Queen and the Yardbirds. Now, she is back with a new book, Dazzle Dolls: The Art and Inspiration of Dummy Rocker Louise Simpson.
I've always enjoyed reading about the fashion and music scenes of different eras. A book which covers the era when glamour was in full swing is always fascinating and this one is no exception. The book is chock full of interesting facts, as well as plenty of fun fashion stories. In fact, I especially like the humorous anecdotes that take place at Simpson's many hair and clothing shows.
However, some of the stories are a little childish and I do not wish to spoil the book for you. However, it would be difficult to think that any fashion rocker would not be proud of her pet Pugs. They are the perfect example of practicality and smart design. These dogs were made by Simpson from pugs that she found on the Internet. As you might imagine, they are quite adorable and the book does not neglect to illustrate just how great they look.
The illustrations in the book are lively and really help get your imagination going. The great thing about these pictures is that you can see exactly what a particular item looks like on the original model. It makes the book even more fun to read because you get such closeups. I especially enjoyed the close-up of the pug's collar and knew just how much it would have made me feel like I was a part of the fashion world when I wore it.
I especially enjoyed the sections on accessories and footwear. There was a great section on clip-on shoes and their varying styles. It seemed that almost every style had a different way to wear them. For instance, there was a clip-on sandal that could be worn with so many different outfits. There were also silk runners that had little bows and beads that could be adding to other outfits to make them extra special. Even though the book covered shoes, there were still plenty of fashion tips on how to wear them.
Of course, there are some bad reviews out there too. One complaint is that it is too short. If you are a fashion fanatic, it might be a good idea to read the full-book to get an idea of the full process of making the clip-on sandals. This book may not serve as a primer on the topic, but it is still a great quick read and enjoyable to do.
I believe that this book would make a great coffee table book. I am sure that many women out there will enjoy the pictures and detailed descriptions of the different pieces. It's a fun read, especially for fashionistas who love to see the world in action. Everyone should have a copy of this book on hand for any occasion where you need to look great and feel fashionable. It's also a great gift idea for anyone on your list who is into fashion or just wants to learn more about it.
I have heard that this book may even inspire future generations of girls and women to follow in the footsteps of their favorite fashion rocker. If that is possible, then I would have to highly recommend this book. The cover is great and the price is great too. This would be a perfect gift for any young lady on your Christmas or birthdays list.
The problem you are facing is not to bring you down, but so you can think more mature than today, yesterday and before. It's not patience if you still have limits and it's not sincerity if you still feel pain. Leave thoughts that make you weak, and hold thoughts that give you strength.
