Book Club Monday

With Memorial Day just a week away, my goal for the Book Club for the next few months is to find you great beach reads.  Fun light, and quick reading will be my main focus.  Sooooo for today, I have chosen, Searching for Beauty: The Life of Millicent Rogers, the American Heiress Who Taught The World About Style.  Doesn't this sound amazing...I cannot wait to start it...Here is the summary:

Nobody knew how to live the high life like Standard Oil heiress Millicent Rogers. Born to luxury, she lived in a whirl of European vacations, exquisite clothing, and dashing men.
In Searching for Beauty, Cherie Burns chronicles Rogers's rebellious life from her days as a young girl afflicted with rheumatic fever to her final days as one of the legendary chatelaines of New Mexico. She eloped with a penniless baron; danced tangos in European nightclubs; romanced Roald Dahl, Secretary of Defense James Forrestal, and Hollywood icon Clark Gable; and triumphed in the world of fashion. She was muse to legendary American designer Charles James, appeared in Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and popularized Southwestern style by adopting turquoise jewelry, squaw skirts and short-waist jackets as her signature look.
With Searching for Beauty, Millicent Rogers enters the pantheon of great American women who, like Diana Vreeland and Babe Paley, put their distinctive stamp on American style. - Amazon.com
