Fall is officially days away and New York Fashion week has come and gone. While I will probably never attend Fashion Week, a dream come true that would be, I was delighted to receive Tales From the Back Row by Amy Odell, literally the next best thing. Odell, the editor of Cosmopolitan.com as well as multiple years of fashion industry experience, writes a witty, laugh out loud, fashion packed read full of fashion icons and celebrity run-ins.
I can’t express how much I loved this book. Amy is the girl you want to know and call your bestie. She is honest, gritty and fun. Her stories are like a Bravo reality show all packed into this glossy little book. Aside from her fashion tales and Rachel Zoe run-ins, Odell is the perfect definition for working hard and making your way up in whatever career you pursue- to get where you want to be you have to start somewhere. Odell worked her way up in an industry that is opinionated and cutthroat and has her anecdotes to laugh about it. From the office of Anna Wintour to the backstage craziness of the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, Tales From the Back Row is the perfect fall read and even more perfect companion to a glass of champagne and fabulous handbag.
