Confessions of a Fashionista


Read an exclusive extract from Confessions of a Fashionista here.

You know the old saying about not judging a book by it’s cover? Well, they were wrong. You should judge this book by it’s cover: it’s awesome. It has a falling pink woman. AND a dog. AND a shoe on the front.

It could only be better if it was made of gold. Or cake. (The inside’s pretty good too).

Confessions of a Fashionista is the riotous memoir of my time in the fashion industry, and Amazon’s Fashion Chart number one bestseller. The designer Lulu Guinness said it: ‘Made me laugh out loud…I read this in one sitting’, and I fainted. Are you ready for the insider story of the good, the bad and the Botox?Ā 


Here’s the blurb


‘I work in fashion.’ I like the way that sounds. Glamorous. No point revealing I make herbal tea for skeletal models and scoop up dog poo.

The author of the hit online Daily Mail column confesses the truth about life in the fashion lane ā€“ from the thrill of watching Kate Moss dance barefoot, to the weird reality of diving into street refuse bins to find a missing Ā£400,000 necklace. Hers is a tale of how to survive heartbreak and stay sane in a world where all around you are losing their Manolo Blahnik-obsessed minds.

Published by Ebury and available from all good book retailers.

    Hi Angela, I’m 17 and have always wanted to enter the fashion industry so I thought reading your book would be helpful.. I literally could not put it down, probably the best book I’ve ever read! I’m still undecided on whether to go into fashion.. I do quite like eating cake, and I’m not the best in heels.. but never mind we’ll see how it goes haha! If my future career is half as eventful as yours I’ll be happy with that. Congratulations with the book, you deserve it! Hope Mr Darling is good too!

    Katie xx

    Hi Angela,

    Just wanted to say that I absolutely loved you book!! In fact I loved it so much that I’ve read it twice in a week! Must say, my husband was not impressed as well as my cats and dogs as I’ve neglected them for you šŸ˜‰ So the one question remaining is: when is your next book coming out?! Can’t wait! xx

    Angela darling,
    I borrowed your book from the library thinking it would be a fun quirky read, which it was, and more!
    What didn’t realise was that I would be transported back to a time in my life where I too worked in fashion from Harrods to modelling full time.
    Oooh you took me right back to the tamtrums and divas I had completely forgotten about.
    Thankyou sweetie!

    Thrilled you enjoyed it, Tina. Thank you for sharing! And, there’s never any harm in reading three, or more, books at once. I think I’m currently juggling four šŸ˜‰ xx

    Hey Angela!
    LOVED your book šŸ™‚ Bought it randomly one day after a rather long discussion with myself about how it’s not a good idea to be reading three books at the same time! But your took over the other two! Love it! Kept giggling with every page and also wanted to slap a few of your characters. You’ve made me miss London so much now! What an amazing city! Anyway love the book!
    Stay awesome! x

    Oh my Coco, Jessica!

    Thank you so much for your lovely words – I’m thrilled you enjoyed Confessions of a Fashionista. Mr Darling and I are all dandy, thank you. I’m still keeping him on his toes and he’s still keeping me on the ground. Thanks for spreading the word and I’ll definitely be shouting if there’s another book in the pipeline. Watch this space! *air kisses and Hermes high fives* xx

    Hi Angela,

    I just wanted to say I loved your book and your blog! I couldn’t stop laughing all the way through, please write the next part of your story. šŸ™‚ I hope you and Mr Darling are both ok? And I hope Side Parting feels bad for what he said! Unfortunately I didn’t buy your book on Amazon so I can’t write up a review, but I will still recommend it to anyone else.

    Many Gucci wishes, Jessica xx
