Cheap Date

we get plenty of great (and not so great) books across our desks at Bust, but among the lot was this: The Cheap Date Guide to Style. And it really tickled my fancy in so many ways. Amongst the impossibly stylish and effortlessly chic icons who grace it's pages are Chloe Sevigny, Mischa Barton, Karl Lagerfeld, and Anna Piaggi who share their thoughts on celebrity style, the trends to forget about, classic pieces that everyone should have in their wardrobe, and what it takes to be a style icon. I won't dish too much so that you may devour every page for yourself (for more juicy deets, be sure to check out the piece written by the lovely Siri in the June/July issue of Bust!). But one thing that really got me thinking was page 14, which asked: What makes someone stylish? The responses explored a range of answers to the question..but one thing remained pretty consistent..the idea that self decoration is an expression of self and that those who don't follow the mainstream and march to the beat of their own drummer, are those who generally are branded stylish. I think, being stylish means confidence. Confidence to put on anything and own it. No matter what that be.

So i am curious what others think...what makes someone stylish?
