Callie Feyen has such a knack for telling personal stories that transcend her own life. In my years in publishing, I’ve seen how hard that is—but she makes it seem effortless, and her book is such a pleasure. It’s funny, it’s warm, it’s enlightening. Callie writes about two of the most important things in life—books and clothes—in utterly delightful and truly moving ways. I’m impressed by how non-gimmicky and fresh her writing is. I love this book.

What story do you want to walk around in? What compass do you need for your journey?
To author Callie Feyen, clothes have always been part of finding and making her personal story. They’ve been a guide and an invitation.
Whatever your personal style, Feyen’s multi-layered coming of age tale—which masterfully weaves timeless stories, writing, and clothes—will make you laugh, catch your breath, even cry.
Then she’ll inspire you to decide who you want to be… and go for it. Try. You can always pick a new outfit—and find a new way, over time.
Twirl gives language to the fierce concerns of an ordinary woman. It tracks small but defining moments, attesting to the joys of design and the pleasure of color we feel as we choose and joke and work and play in jeans, sandals, a coat, T-shirts. Start reading and you will be hooked.
