About This Book

For many years, one of the most popular features of the coveted Lulu Guinness handbags have been the phrases embroidered on the front. Complementing her uniquely imaginative designs, these cheeky glamour-girl aphorisms are inspired pick-me-ups that bring an irresistible touch of levity to women's accessories. Put on Your Pearls Girls is one of Lulu's own favorite expressions—and sums up her philosophy for when a blue mood hits. "Put on your pearls girls" captures the spirit of this book perfectly.

Drawing her inspiration from Louise Brooks, Coco Chanel, and other style icons, Lulu offers this delightful and inspiring book of style advice and encouragement, from gentle proddings ("A moment on the lips...") to the powerful positive reinforcement that only this fashion maven can give. In the form of a glamorously drawn alter ego, Lulu Guinness takes the reader through day and evening, floating along on a sea of beauty, humor, and flair. The result, in the tradition of Diana Vreeland's famed "Why Don't You's?" is a collection of whimsical but heartfelt edicts that every woman can live by.
