Feature and Follow Friday

Feature Follow Friday is hosted by Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

This week's question:

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving Day food? If you’re not American or Canadian, what is your favorite holiday food?

My favorite Thanksgiving day food is seafood dressing made with mirliton and crab. My favorite Thanksgiving desserts are sweet potato pie and lemon meringue pie.

My review:

This book is a must have for fashionistas, designers, lovers of fashion photography and any up and coming stylists. The layout is neat and the pictures are clear and colorful. There are many recognizable designers as well as new ones. There are a plethora of styles and fashion ideas for everybody. I've never been to fashion week but this book makes me feel like I have a front row seat to all of the many fashions.
