Helping the world dress better and build self confidence one fashion makeover at a time, Stacy London stopped in at Third Place Books to promote her latest book: The Truth About Style. Stacy couldn’t have come at a better time. October just so happens to be Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Stacy London is well known for her work with American Cancer Society’s Look Good Feel Better program, which offers fashion ideas and tips for survivors and those going through cancer treatment. I made a cupcake appropriate for the occasion and forgot to take a picture of it.
I apologize for making you use your imagination, but here’s a little description of what she’s holding. This year I came up with a new cupcake, Candy Corn, which is a two-toned white chocolate cupcake topped with caramel buttercream. Instead of topping it with candy corn I opted for a pink chocolate ribbon dusted with edible glitter for an elegant and tasty cupcake.
In order to explain why Stacy London deserves a cupcake, I feel I should explain a little about her book. The Truth About Style is not only about her personal life, but also about her outlook on style. I fully support the idea that one’s sense of personal style shouldn’t be about stressing yourself out about staying hip and looking cool, but more about dressing in a way that makes you feel good about yourself. Style should be about finding the look that works for you and not worrying about copying runway models and loading up on all the latest accessories you spotted in the magazines. A book for all ages full of do’s and don’ts, a great read for fashionistas of all ages with a timeless quality that a lot of fashion books lacks. In addition to Stacy’s countless charitable contributions, she was the perfect candidate for a cupcake.
A fashion stylest that never takes a break, Stacy was an absolute delight. Her fans welcomed her on the spot critiques and tips with personal stories about how her advice has changed their lives and brightened their days. She listened to every story with humbleness and a warm smile. The book was for a friend, and I hope she enjoyed the hot pink autograph.
