When was the last time you wore a cape to the opera, or white gloves to lunch? Whatever happened to cuckoo clocks, quizzing glasses, and zeppelins? Why does everyone remember Coco Chanel, but her one-time archrival, designer Elsa Schiaparelli, has faded into relative obscurity?

Wistful ... zeitgeisty ... charming ... Let's Bring Back is like a stroll down memory lane. Whether you'd carry a parasol down 5th Avenue or plop it in your caipirinha there s something for everyone.


REFINERY 29
A gorgeously illustrated champagne bubble of a read ... Let's Bring Back is a must for that perfect, cozy rainy afternoon."


SALLY SINGER, EDITOR, T: THE NEW YORK TIMES MAGAZINE
If you're feeling lousy and you read this book, it awakens you to things that have made you happy in your life. It reminds you of a time when certain things ideas, gestures got you through. [Let's Bring Back] promotes and revels in an idea of life that s lived in 3-D, not 2-D, a life lived civicly and civil-y. And that is a very wonderful thing.


O, OPRAH MAGAZINE
Elegant ... whimsical ... As Blume herself might put it, we just think this book is the bee's knees.


THE NEW YORKER
Whimsical ... comical ... delightful ... Blume's book is about more than just populating your life with antique trinkets; it's about curating your own charming lifestyle while celebrating the Wildean ideals of life as art.
