Weekly Reader: Fabulosity...What it is, How to get it


I shared in a previous post about being an avid reader, I read just about anything magazines, books, blogs you name it I probably read it. I am really trying to justify giving myself the Kindle for a Christmas present, but that's a completely different topic...

The past few weeks I have been reading Kimora Lee Simmons book Fabulosity & also Style A to Zoe by Rachel Zoe, these 2 women know fashion & are great business women.

Style A to Zoe is a fashion dictionary and a great guide to finding your personal style. How many times have I met with brides that really are not aware of their personal style? {Ummm, lots} You want your wedding to be a reflection of your personal style and not the fairy tale person that you probably won't recognize in your wedding pictures 20 years from now. So, Style A to Zoe, will help you in figuring out your personal style & also how you can incorporate it into your wedding day as well!!

Kimora Lee Simmons book Fabulosity is a must read. I remember telling a friend I was reading this book and her comment was "does she really have alot of talk about that's not shallow?" My response YES!! I have been pleasantly surprised by the amount of business information that I have learned in Fabulosity! I mean yeah we all know Kimora to be the Queen of Urban Fashion with her Baby Phat line, but she is a mogul, a savy entrepreneur, a great mother & a leader in the fashion industry.
She gives great rules for being Women Warriors, style tips & her Checklist for being one of her employees are basically some of the traits I believe make a great wedding planner:
  1. Don't be last minute
  2. Don't ever say, "That's not part of my job"
  3. Be ultra-organized
  4. Be Fabulous
  5. Be a gold-medal multitasker
  6. Be discreet

As a planner, I believe it is a must to be knowledgeable about many different areas especially fashion because you gain such insightful inspiration in creating a fabulous wedding or event!!

Happy Reading!
