This book was really awesome. At first, I'll admit, I wasn't sure it would hold my interest but it did. And more than that it was full of light hearted humor. The story is told through the perspective of our accessories. The things most of us use everyday, a purse, a coat, or a wallet. You follow along on their journey, from the time they are purchased through the everyday activities or just sitting in the dark closet.
I think the beginning of the book puts things into perspective. Who thinks about that purse you pass up for something different or that belt sitting in the clearance section.
From the book: " I remember lying on the half-price table in the huge department store. I try to be honest with myself, but I struggle to admit I wasn't very happy. There's no honor being on the half-price table, it means simply no one wanted me."
Kinda makes you want to make sure the things you have are getting the attention they should. Maybe dust off that shelf of knick knacks and pictures a little more. Or wear those jeans that have been sitting in the back of the drawer. Grab your purse and coat and wear it better, with the same enthusiasm it got when you first bought it!
After reading through the book, I think I am going to share it with my oldest daughter. She is into fashion and accessories, she is also very much into shopping, and I think she would really enjoy it. The book was really well written. I am glad I got the opportunity to review this book.
You can pick you a copy of the book on Amazon for on $0.99!
