Saffron Burrows finds out what not to wear in Hadley Freeman's The Meaning of Sunglasses: A Guide to (Almost) All Things Fashionable. Local hotel workers and children helped us with some shots. There is a campy decadence to much of the behaviour in the fashion world that contrasts with Freeman's refreshingly down-to-earth approach; she is less concerned with fashion's excesses than with its reflection of how we really live, the spaces we inhabit, how we spend our days.

In this funny, chic and wise book, award-winning fashion writer Hadley Freeman separates the nonsense from the fabulous and shows that falling in love with an It bag doesn't mean you have the IQ of an It girl. Ever the entertaining guide, Hadley shows how to wear shorts without looking like an extra in Hamlet, what to spend money on, and what not to, and why only harpists should wear velvet. And most of all, she shows that you don't need to be thin, young, tall or rich to enjoy fashion, you just need a sense of humour.

A deputy fashion editor at The Guardian examines the modern world's obsession with fashion, in an encyclopedic volume of instructional and philosophical mini-essays that celebrates fashion's joys and foibles.

For any woman really interested in fashion this book is great. Very Funny . I bought two for friends who are also fashion aware. I don't mean a fashion victim or in the industry, just someone who likes fashion , is fun and wants a good laugh.
This book contains so many nuggets of absolute truth, don't miss it.

I've only read the downloadable Kindle sample, so please forgive me if I've missed a truly inspired literary gem, but my initial impression was.......less than favorable. I do enjoy fashion, though I generally ignore the fashion industry as I prefer to make my own choices about what works and what doesn't. I gather that Ms. Freeman has spent a great deal of time immersed in the fashion world and has grown, shall we say, bitter.

While I can appreciate a grand turn of phrase (I fancy myself a bit of a word-smith), this book struck me as trying too hard to be witty and intelligent. After near herculean efforts to untangle her wordy witticisms, what was I left with? Bitterness and complaint at being told what to wear and what to buy was all I was able to discern from her ramblings. To take the time to wade through an entire book seems rather an exhausting proposition when I was simply looking for a bit of light entertainment and commentary on fashion, with perhaps the occasional useful tip on the same. Instead, I discovered haughty turn of phrase and decidedly barbed comments directed at many delightful fashion options.

Save your reading time and efforts for something that, at least, will leave you feeling inspired and hopeful. This tome will simply leave you with the grump-ass. (and anyone with a decent vocabulary and a thesaurus can copy the basic style of this particular b*&%h fest)

I read about this book in Mediabistro's Galleycat section about a week ago and HAD to go see it for myself because it seemed like something that I would enjoy. Much more of a bookworm than a fashionista, I felt that the author's essays on the industry would appeal to both senses and I was not disappointed.

This book is an insider's hysterical, snarky encyclopedia of the fashion world; what we love and hate about it, where and how we all fit into it in some way, and how we can each maintain our individual swagger. It's also the perfect book for those of us who primarily don't even GIVE a fvck and are more concerned with the perfect sentence than the perfect shoe, DEFINITELY don't wanna look like EVERYONE else just because something has been declared the "in" look of the season (*gag*), but love to be informed all the same. LOL I had to come on here and give this chick her props and I highly recommend this book!

You will be sold from the first entry, which is about accessories and how designers are making a mint because they've found that women "WILL pay $1000 for a Marc Jacobs hat" (or double for a bag, cause it's easy to tell the fakes among THEM as opposed to a dress from Marni or H&M) and also now-ubiquitous keyfobs to be displayed on the bags ("now your accesory needs an accessory!"). Or the charm bracelet or the little Tiffany heart necklaces you see. And what about rationalizing buying expensive bags for their longevity, then reading that it's the "IT bag" for only one season? I could go on and on about how great this book is, but you should just see for yourself...and I'm sure you will agree!

I really wanted to like this book, but it seemed tedious to me. Yes, as noted in a previous review, ok in small snippits. And what is this obsession with Kate Moss? Really, what does KM have to do with the big picture of fashion? I don't know her, don't care about her.

The part I enjoyed was the discussion about fashion over 50. She was right on about that.

This book is just too much fun!

If you've ever pondered the amazing power that fashion holds over the females of this species, you will find here much to tickle your funny bone.

Ms. Freeman wittily exposes our bizarre, lemming-like tendencies in this collection of mini-essays. You will laugh out loud while reading because if you don't recognize bits of yourself in this encyclopedia of dos, don'ts, and why did Is, you will certainly recognize someone you know.

My favorite bits in the book have to do with fashion trends and the choice between "looking fashionable and looking good". I also enjoyed the section "Get: fashion that girls do and boys don't". Hats off to Ms. Freeman for her ability to poke fun in such a wicked and yet ultimately sympathetic manner.

In short, Get: this book. And you, too, will know the real meaning of sunglasses.

What an astute and wonderfully witty analysis of life as we know it, or for many of us, would like to know it! Ms. Freeman's fluid writing and clever, laser-like insight about today's style, real feminism, and important life priorities is exceptional! This is a manifesto of manners, not just a discussion, and a must read for all who love contemporary commentary on social custom -- as well as for those who value the insights of Jane Austen and Tom Wolfe! A real must read of our time!

I'm not at all a fashionista but I do wear sunglasses religiously & so the title caught my eye. I'm glad it did, as I thoroughly enjoyed almost every page of this witty romp. No one writes as well as the British, when it comes to humor, and this book is a perfect example. Whether or not you are "into" fashion, this is a fun, fun book!
