Boobs and Boys

Boobs, Boys, and High Heels
or How to Get Dressed in Just Under Six Hours
Brill
1992

So Dianne Brill is an actress/designer, an 80s-early 90s club kid, and muse of Andy Warhol. She was dubbed “Queen of the Night.” The book’s content isn’t really my cup of tea, but it is a legit purchase for a collection….in the early 1990s. Is it weed-worthy? In my opinion, and for my library, it is, unless I had some big circulation numbers. This book is 30 years old, so fashion design (and any health and beauty tips or products) are out of date. This might work for collections in NYC area or in specialty collections on pop culture or fashion design.

I kind of put some celebrity advice books in a temporary category in terms of weeding. If the book is still circulating, and the person is still noteworthy, I would consider retaining. There are lots of books that are like this. We have a couple of good examples: Sophia Loren, Travis Stork, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Dick Clark. They give lots of advice. I am not sure the advice is any good, but I guess that is a different book.
