Rachel Levy Lesser can relive almost every significant life event through an accessory. A scarf, a pair of earrings, a bag, even a fleece pair of socks--each contains the elements that put together the story of a life. Life's Accessories is a funny, sad, touching, relatable, shake-your-head-right-along-as-you-laugh-and-wipe-away-tears, coming-of-age memoir. In fourteen essays, Lesser tackles sensitive issues like anxiety, illness, and loss in a way that feels a bit like having a chat with a good friend. Out of the stories comes solid life--and fashion--advice. About far more than just a hair tie, a bracelet, or a belt, Life's Accessories is a window into the many ways in which Lesser has come to understand life--in all of its beauty, its joys, its sorrows, its heartaches, its challenges, and its absurdity.
