Reviews

"Intimate and sweet.... A fashion book for everyone who feels that so far they have been left out of the fun." - Publishers Weekly
"Full of emotion and honesty, and a handy antidote to 'fast fashion.'.. Dip in and out whenever the cynicism of today's consumer culture seems overwhelming." -NYTimes.com
"A fascinating, poignant book." - Minneapolis Star Tribune
"The one-page mini-memoirs, accompanied by a photograph of the piece of clothing, are intensely personal and yet universal. Initially I skipped around in Worn Stories until I realized I didn't want to miss a single story and read it straight through." - Boston Globe
"A plain buttondown shirt, a green sweater, a pair of legwarmers, all are suddenly seen in a new, more poignant light." - Globe and Mail
"Worn Stories is absolutely remarkable in its entirety - a true labor of love that weaves this common thread of intensely personal, courageously vulnerable sartorial memories into a colorful tapestry of the human experience." - Brain Pickings
