Today we have Talia Nicoletti from Ella Martin‘s book I Love Him, I Love Him Not sharing with us the accessories, books and clothes she is lusting after.
Let’s give a warm ABCers welcome to Talia to the ABCs, (and Ella)!
I’m so excited to be part of the ABCs Character Edition for my novel, I Love Him, I Love Him Not, which will be available soon in paperback. The book is about Talia Nicoletti, a girl who puts up a hardened facade to keep from having to deal with her feelings, as she’s forced to unravel some tangled up emotions and figure out what she wants. Part of that tough exterior means she misses a lot of things that are right in front of her face, stuff she would notice if she’d just drop her guard enough to let other people in.
Accessory: Dr. Martens 1460 W
You can’t go wrong with a good pair of boots, and what better boots are there than Doc Martens? These hot pink patent leather boots are perfect. They fall way outside the Westgate Prep dress code, they’re super comfy, and they match Talia’s hair…when she decides to go Manic Panic Cotton Candy Pink.
Books: Drew Struzan: Oeuvre
Talia’s favorite commercial artist is Drew Struzan, the artist behind some of the most iconic movie posters and album covers. Drew Struzan: Ouevre doesn’t include all his work (it was released a few years before Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens), but it’s still an amazing collection of some of his most memorable art over the last thirty-plus years.
Clothes: Larry Levine Single Breasted Wool Blend Walking Coat
It’s been said that it never rains in Southern California (and there’s even a song to that effect), but the winter months can be pretty brutal by L.A. standards. When it drops below 65 degrees, it’s time to break out the heavy winter wear. This Larry Levine walking coat is exactly Talia’s style. It’s basic and understated, allowing her to pair it with just about anything in her wardrobe (including those boots!), and it’s much warmer than one of her Westgate Prep hoodies.
Thanks Talia (and Ella) for playing!
