Book covers into fashion 2

I had some ideas brewing since I made my first Covers into Fashion post, you can see all those posts here or check out the Books into Fashion posts over here. I really like how this is going, because sometimes I read/have read books I’d love to share here, but can’t seem to make a whole post on – so putting a spin on the cover works even better!

Towards the end of 2013, I finally got my hands on a copy of Where’d You Go Bernadette by Maria Semple – I knew nothing about the book, but had been oddly attracted to the cover (I’m a sucker for a good cover!). I was pleasantly surprised at how awesome it was, one of my favorite books of the year!

Where'd you go, Bernadette

I thought I’d make this a two book set, and really fell in love with the cover of the classic book, Fox in Socks by Dr. Seuss. I don’t even have to explain why. I will say that I was one click away from getting those boots two months ago (but went with a more affordable pair instead).

I can say, I really like where these are going 🙂

  • Lol, especially at the first one where everything is placed so perfectly. I love both and still think this is such a creative series.

    Your inventive presentation for “Where’d you go, Bernadette?” made me smile, and I love that you completed “Fox in Socks” with the yellow rug! This series is great.
    “Where’d you go, Bernadette?” was recommended to me, oddly enough, by a stranger on a train a few months ago. I’ll have to check it out!

    I absolutely adored Dr. Suess as a child, and I’d be lying if I said they don’t still give me a giggle. I would wear the Fox in Socks outfit in a minute – so cute!

      For real, now I need to find a fox sweater! I almost got those Loeffler Randall boots and still want them! I think they have them in a cheetah print, which actually sounds more fun 🙂

    When I created that collage, I knew instantly this was going to be something I really enjoy. It made me laugh, cause I turned that scarf into a little old lady! It really is a fantastic book, Maria Semple was a tv show writer, and you’re left with wanting a second part to the book!

  • Emilie

    I like it too where this is going, I remember the previous one :p Thanks for the tip on the book, I will check it out! xx

  • Such a great idea! Love the first cover – what’s it about? I’m currently reading Jackie O’s biography, inspired by my trip to Texas 🙂 Thanks for your lovely comment and this inspiring post!

    haha oh my goodness I like the Fox in Socks outfit!

    What a fun post! I have to confess I sometimes get books just for the cover, specially if they are fashion related and they never disappoint. Gotta put my hands on a copy of Maria Semple’s!

    Cee. ♥

  • um cutest post EVER?! haha this is SUCH an awesome idea, and your collages really do match the covers! and i’m guilty of picking up a book based just on the cover, i’ll have to see if the library has that bernadette one!
