Hi guys and dolls!
Oh, do I have such a treat to show you and speak to you about today! Several days ago, the postman delivered a package and I knew what it was before opening it. When it comes to Elvis, I develop a sixth sense! It was the book I've been waiting for. The book we've all been waiting for:
The author of Elvis Style: From Zoot Suits to Jumpsuits, is Zoey Goto, a fashion and design journalist. Reading the book, you can tell how much time and passion she devoted to writing this beautiful homage to The King of Rock'n'Roll, focusing on and recognizing him as The King of Style too. Zoey Goto even met Elvis' tailor and she got to sleep in the bedroom where Elvis used to sleep as a teenager!!! Now that's real hands-on research! :)
Zoey Goto thoroughly and meticulously covers everything pertaining to Elvis' unique style, from head to toe (literally, from his signature pompadour to his Blue Suede Shoes or more precisely, white suede shoes. You'll know what I mean when you read the book!). The book walks you through Elvis' style evolution, from the 1950s to the 1970s and examines not only his outfits and hair, but also his food, his cars and his houses. You'll become an Elvis expert after reading Elvis Style!!! The book contains so many fascinating facts about The King that I didn't know about. I won't reveal any, for your ease of suspense! ;)
Elvis Style also contains plenty of gorgeous photos for the pleasure of your eyes.
So, after swooning at the incredible photographs of handsome Elvis, learning about his tastes, about his continuous presence in the contemporary world, and after drooling over Chapter 3 (Elvis Food), I'm going to continue dreaming about the man who revolutionized the world of music and the world of fashion; the one and only: Elvis Presley.
I highly recommend Elvis Style by Zoey Goto. You will be ooohing and aaahing, reading this book. Guaranteed.
Elvis Style is available here on Amazon.
