Do you ever see a book that is intended for kids, but it is so awesome you just have to have it for yourself? I can answer that as “Yes, frequently” and that’s exactly what happened when I saw The Complete Book of Fashion History by Jana Sedlackova. It’s a stylish journey through history and the ultimate guide for being fashionable in every era – AND a lot of fun!
