Style by the Book: Valley of the Dolls

July’s book club pick is Valley of the Dolls by Jacqueline Susann. Set in post WWII, Anne, Neely and Jennifer search for love, success and money with some help from their “dolls”. Sex, drugs and show tunes are only the beginning in this classically kitschy tale of getting everything you ever wanted.

This collection of vintage and handmade finds was inspired by Valley of the Dolls…
