The Bookshelf Mini




I'm currently obsessed with the wardrobe used in Ugly Betty, especially Amanda's style. The infamous Patricia Field styled the cast of Ugly Betty as well as the film, Confessions of a Shopaholic which is another favourite of mine, so expect to see a lot more Amanda Tanen Sommer's inspired posts. First up is a skirt featured in the Ugly Betty episode 'When Betty Met Yeti'. Amanda saunters into Yeti with gay best friend, Marc and his team. Swiftly followed by the faces of Badgley Mischka; Mark Badgley and James Mischka. Grasping onto a magazine, Amanda pairs a black tassel jacket with the Bookshelf Mini by one of my favourite designers - Jeremy Scott, from his Fall/Winter 2008 Opulence Collection. These pieces are a great way to pay homage to literature and the arts through another art; fashion. The collection is inspired by the beauty of a library filled with stories, facts and aged hardbacks. I'm not a huge reader but I do like to immerse myself in a good book and would one day, love to have a library full of my favourite reads. Jeremy Scott is also known for The Simpsons collection as worn by the wonderfully beautiful Cara Delevigne.


Unfortunately, with a designer name comes a hefty price tag. The skirt alone would set you back around £200. So whether you enjoy literature or simply enjoy wearing it, you better start saving up!
