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.
