From the Back Cover:

Everything you love for less!

Anna Johnson is not a tea-bag squeezer, a penny-pincher, or inherently thrifty in any way—but she knows how to enjoy the finer things in life . . . for much, much less! In Savvy Chic, she shares her secrets on how to dress, decorate, entertain, and travel in high style without breaking the piggy bank.

  • Style: Get "rich girl" chic for dimes and master the fine art of thrift-shop vintage.
  • Decorating: Create exquisite curtains with Chinese lace tablecloths and shop the flea market like a stylist.
  • Entertaining: Feast on abundant rather than expensive food—from the ten-dollar dinner to the shoestring wedding reception.
  • Travel: Fake snobby style in Capri or make a one-star hotel feel like home.
  • Leisure: Take the town with nothing but a ball gown and twenty dollars or enjoy the most original dates in the history of love, for less of course.

All it takes to live well is taste, style, imagination, and rebellious flair—and Savvy Chic will show you how. Fun, fulfilling, and frugally fabulous, here's your indispensable guide to five-star elegance on a one-star budget.

Book Description HarperCollins Publishers Inc, United States, 2014. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Luxury living can still be achieved on a budget. Savvy Chic will teach you how to entertain, decorate, travel, and dress for less. In elegant prose, Anna Johnson combines a unique mix of anecdote, riff, and how-to, and shares her secrets of survivalist chic. She mixes the passionate with the practical to come up dozens of ideas for enhancing your lifestyle without killing your bank account: Decorating - create exquisite curtains with Chinese lace tablecloths bought for pennies in Chinatown; Style - master the art of wearing thrift-store vintage by figuring out your best decade: forties for pear shapes versus thirties or sixties for narrow hips; Travel - everything from faking resort chic in Capri to making a one star hotel room feel like home; Leisure - on a hot summer day create a luxurious in-home bathroom spa by dressing in a light kimono and cotton slippers, and soaking in a cool tub with a plate of sliced mango; and, Entertaining - abundant food is more impressive than expensive food - a mountain of clams steamed in a simple tomato broth with warm baguette costs little and immediately sets a decadent mood. Anna s philosophy runs throughout Savvy Chic : good taste on the cheap is the backbone of libertine thrift, but more important still is the sense of abundance, generosity, and fun that come from re-inventing the rules. Adorned with gorgeous four-color illustrations, Savvy Chic is perfect for any woman looking to save money without skimping on style. Bookseller Inventory # AA89780061715068
