Book Style: The Book Of Lost Things

The Book Of Lost Things

The Book of Lost Things by John Connolly is such a fun whimsical book that contains a very poignant coming of age tale. I think the cover with its midnight blue background and golden vines is a nice reflection of the words within. I wanted to try and convey a World War 2 era British schoolboy in this casual, weekend-ready outfit. I think the Peter Pan collar necklace, newsboy cap, and oxford shoes lend a nice masculine touch while the gold glitter polish, fairy tale book locket ring, and Great Expectations purse bring the magical elements in. (Oh and by the way, if you haven't yet read this book, do so immediately. It's wonderful.)


  1. Favorite book of ever.

    1. It's one of mine too! I'm really jonesing for a re-read.
