Lolly: From Fishing to Fashion by Jeff Stewart


March of Time and Skin author Jeff Stewart navigates us through the start, deconstruction, and rebirth of Lolly Clothing, the salvation from the bottom of survival to the methods of their success. Told in a beautifully raw, stripped-down style, Lolly: From Fishing to Fashion, Reeling in an Unlikely Fashion Success takes us through the insides of the fashion company and their people with humor, heartbreak, and prose that introduce the fashion process through the world of the writer; moving us along from the effects of guts and consequences to the cathedral of Lolly, and the power of never listening to the odds.

My Review:

This has been one of the most unique books I have read in a long time.  The format is different and told more of in a first person format.

In this book you will learn about Jeff Stewart and his journey in life.  During a brief conversation with two strangers, Todd and Lori Kimball, a new friendship is formed and Jeff Stewart is taken on a road he never expected.

The story behind Lolly and Chris and Todd Kimball is plain and simple.  A dream, a desire, and ambition. 

The author did a terrific job telling this story.  During the book, the author also talks about his van that has almost saw it's last day.  We've all been there with a vehicle, that well, has already served it's time.  He also talks about his dog Chico, who in a sense, is his best friend.

I had to wait on my husband's vehicle to be repaired so I took the book with me.  I was at the dealership for three hours and I was able to read the book front to back.  It was really hard to put down.

Thank you to the author, Jeff Stewart, for providing me with a complimentary copy of the book.  I am now a fan of his books.  I look forward to reading more.  My opinion was in no way influenced.  All opinions are my own.
