Chronicle Craft: Do You Give A Frock?
One of our favorite new releases is the beautifully illustrated tongue in cheek style guide, Like I Give A Frock by Michi Girl. This witty style book is packed with fashion advice and hilarious do’s and don’ts all illustrated by the beloved Kat Macleod. We’ve long been fans of Kat’s lush illustrations using fabric, water colors, and mixed media. Kat’s work has been featured in many magazines and blogs and we were so excited to see the recent post from Oh Joy (a fantastic design blog you should visit!) featuring some spreads from Like I Give A Frock:

Kat’s illustrations pair perfectly with Michi’s wicked fashion forecasting:
On the practical, but ugly, oversized tote: Killed someone and haven’t got time to hide the body? This massively awkward bag is perfect for life’s misdemeanors.
Tight pants: If we can see what you had for breakfast and your bottom looks like a bag of peanuts, they might be a frac too tight.
Wearing white to a wedding: There is a golden rule that says one should never wear white to a wedding, for one may be mistaken for the bride. I would have thought that having the groom as an accessory was a dead giveaway.
We think you’ll love this sweet package as much as we do and so we’re offering up 3 copies, just tell us your biggest fashion faux pas in the comment section below and we’ll have Michi pick her favorites. Don’t worry about being nice!
