Book Review: What I Wore Today

I was so excited when I was sent the press release for Gemma Correll’s latest venture “What I Wore Today”. Due to be released in March at a RRP of £9.99 this super sweet journal style book gives you the chance to doodle yourself in to a style icon. I was also offered the chance to review a copy of the book, and whilst I’m not going to reveal my lack of artistic talent by showing my doodles, I WILL give you a preview of what to expect!

I do apologise for the awful photos, for some reason I find it really hard to photograph books decently (maybe one day I’ll invest in a decent camera and learn how to use it!)

This really is a lovely book, and as well as giving you a chance to document outfits, there are hints and tips for dressing for the seasons and lots of places to unleash your inner fashion designer.

And for those who don’t know much about Gemma and her work, here’s a little bio:

“Gemma Correll is a freelance illustrator, coffee drinker and sometime ukulele player, based in deepest, darkest England.

Gemma has exhibited her work in galleries and shop windows around the world and her artwork has been reproduced on everything from placemats to t-shirts to umbrellas.

She has also had her work published in various books, annuals and magazines and has undertaken commissions to paint murals on the walls of pubs and shops in the UK and the USA.

Gemma’s artwork has been described as ‘the perfect combination of ugly and cute’, which she takes as a compliment!”

As well as all this Gemma also maintains a blog:

What I Wore Today…in Drawings
is a Flikr pool and blog with over 2,200 members and growing. It has been covered in Grazia, Uppercase and Neet magazines, as well as numerous fashion blogs.

Is this a book that’ll be winging it’s way on to your Amazon wishlist? Will you be placing a cheeky pre-order?

I really think you should!
