“Today is YLF Books launch day!!” That was my first thought when I woke up this morning. Then I pinched myself to make sure it wasn’t all just a fabulous dream. It has been a couple of months since Angie, Greg and I first started brainstorming YLF Books and it is so exciting to see it go live.
Two of the things I love most are wiling away the hours in a bookstore and spending time on YLF to get my daily fashion fix. With YLF Books we want to bring these two experiences together. The store will contain a carefully curated selection of books, movies and magazines that all have something to do with fashion and style. We will definitely select titles that we love, but since tastes differ, we will also be adding items that may not be our own personal favourites. Timeless classics and the latest releases will sit side by side, representing a range of genres to cater to different interests. We are also using the same review system as in the YLF store, so fellow members can review items and perhaps help you make better purchase decisions. Amazon.com will probably have more reviews, but at YLF Books you will get the opinion of people you know.
To make browsing easier we have separated the items into three main categories, Books, Movies and Magazines. Books and Movies also have their own subcategories. As the selection grows, we will be adding more categories and subcategories over time.
Note that YLF Books is an affiliate of Amazon.com. There is a purchase link underneath each of the items, and if you follow that link before making your purchase on Amazon, then YLF earns a small commission.
To celebrate the official opening of our online bookstore we are declaring this the Books Bonanza Week at YLF. We have some marvelous giveaways lined up for you.
- Monday: Intimate Chanel by Isabelle Fiemeyer and Parisian Chic by Inès de la Fressange
- Tuesday: 2 complete sets of the British TV series The House of Eliott
- Wednesday: 2 copies of Amy E. Goodman’s Wear This, Toss That
- Thursday: 5 copies of the Bill Cunningham New York documentary
- Friday: 5 copies each of The Pocket Stylist and Style Evolution by Kendall Farr
Thank you to all the publishers for supporting YLF Books with these giveaways. Be sure to check in each day for a chance to win one of the items. We will be launching each of the giveaways here on the YLF main blog, and then they will appear in the Competitions section.
