Super stylish books

I love books, perhaps even more than shopping.  Few things make me happier than sitting on my couch reading magazines and novels.  However, I also love a good book on style and want to share my favorites since they make great gifts (or impulse purchases at Half Price Books)

InStyle Secrets of Style
This book does a great job of showing how to combine basic pieces and what outfits work for different occasions like weddings and job interviews.  I think it would be a great graduation gift for the tempo short-ed graduate in your life.  Ignore the bad reviews, but buy it used since it's kind of expensive for what it is.

The Lucky Guide to Mastering Any Style...
This book is huge and covers a lot of information, though I still like the InStyle one better for basic outfits.

Tim Gunn: A Guide to Quality, Taste & Style
One of my very first posts was about how this book helped me clean out my closet once and for all.  It's not a book of pretty pictures, but instead a guide to what you need and how to shop better.

Domino: The Book of Decorating
This is by far my favorite book.  Even though the magazine is no longer around, the lessons and inspiration are still fantastic and I look at this book every couple of months when I think I want to buy something for the house.
