Girl power with style

bloomHere’s what I love in a picture book biography:

  • People who persist and overcome obstacles to do amazing things
  • Imagination
  • Dreams
  • Beautiful art

This book has everything I like, along with a lot of shocking pink and some really fun fashion.  Elsa Schiaparelli said NO to the expected and used her imagination, persistence, and dreams to overcome in wild and interesting ways.  I might not be looking for a hat that looks like a shoe myself – although I’m sure I could find a way to rock one along with my favorite cardigan – but we can all appreciate who she was and what she achieved.
