All the Frills: Coffee Table Books

I have a definite weakness for large coffee table books about fashion, accessories, and fashion history (oh, and tiaras, because I’m pretty much obsessed with tiaras) and I add at least one or two new volumes to my collection each year. The latest one, not pictured here, is the recent Met exhibit (and theme of the most recent Met ball) on heaven and hell in the Catholic imagination. It’s a stunning book that is, less fortunately, equipped with a pure white linen cover that I have inadvertently already somehow managed to get finger prints on. Sigh.

Weekend Reading:

I have a few fashion books but your collection is so great!
I'm more into the Disney history books these days, haha. So strange, but whatever

I've always felt like the gender reveal was bad, but it's just scary bad now. What happened to simply cutting a cake? I think my favorite fail was a couple who opened their balloon filled box to get a rainbow of colors instead of blue or pink and the dad to be has a full on freak out. Like how horrible it must have been for my parents to suffer through three whole pregnancies and not know the gender of their children before they were born!

Seriously, they really want to tempt fate and name a ship Titanic II? I mean, the fact that we have many, many cruise ships with pools and bowling alleys and ice skating rinks is clearly a testomony to the fact that we can build big crazy extravagant ships. Why do we need to name one after the failure?

Chic on the Cheap

Gender reveal parties. Don't even get me started. If you only want a child if it's a specific gender, you probably don't want one that badly...

On a less horrific note, your collection of coffee table books is beautiful. I have a collection of my own, but most of them are displayed on shelves to avoid problems like fingerprints as much as possible.
