Violet Velvet Mittens with Everything: The Fabulous Life of Diana Vreeland


Write a Review

Immerse young readers in the glamorous world of the eccentric and fashionable Diana Vreeland, who once asked: "Why don't you wear violet velvet mittens with everything?"
Violet Velvet Mittens with Everything celebrates Empress of Fashion Diana Vreeland, whose legacies at Harper's Bazaar, Vogue , and the Costume Institute of the Metropolitan Museum of Art have had a lasting impact. As a little girl in Paris, Vreeland loved to dance and read, though she loved dressing up most of all. Wearing a rainbow of colors all at once made her feel most like herself, and her dedication to individuality inspired countless others to be just as dazzling and daring. A wonderfully true story of making extraordinary dreams possible, author Deborah Blumenthal echoes the infectiously extravagant tone of Vreeland, with illustrator Rachel Katstaller matching the icon's careful consideration of color.
