I noticed it as well and searched TFS to see if anyone had mentioned it at all. I think I'll get it, but it would be nice to know if anyone has the inside scoop and knows if it will be really worth it.

It's a "great new feature" on NAP.com.If you go to the home page of the site you'll see where to click for more info.Not very comprehensive info though.

i just got 'lost' on NAP for a little while...
it's been awhile since i've even looked...

there is very little that is even remotely interesting to me...

and i agree...
it's just a nother product for them to sell ...
if i am going to have a 'style notebook'...
it's going to have to have a lot of clothes in it that they don't sell...
...

^too funny, Softie! They didn't describe the notebook much so I have no idea what I can get from more than 50 bucks.
It's funny that I look at their website all the time to see the new arrivals but never purchased anything from them. It seems that I can always find better things locally:p

Nah, I don't think this notebook is worth it.

Why let someone else dictate my style?
And isn't looking for something and putting it together yourself is part of the reason why fashion is so fun?
Anyway, I'll like to put together my own lookbook myself because I know what suits me and I want to avoid being a fashion victim

It's probably just a glorified magazine...and I'll be happy to use my money somewhere else...

What I don't understand is how they say their notebook is "interactive". Interactive as in.. about the same way as you would read any magazine or maybe you can rip out their pages and repaste them in the back?

It also says that they are anticipating "high demand, and you should order early to avoid dissapointment".

They do usually sell out of certain items very quickly though. Like the paddington wallet, which I didn't find attractive at all. But then again, I thought the same thing about the paddy bag at first (I thought, didn't Prada do the same thing a few years back and sparked a craze?). Any thoughts?

OK, I finally broke down & took a look to see what y'all have been on about

Obviously this is a pure marketing ploy, but I believe the price point is meant to be competitive with Franklin Planner and the like. Except instead of organizing your life, they are organizing your closet--the Net-a-Porter way.

I do in fact have a notebook in which I plan my wardrobe, home improvements, decorating, travel, and more. Blank book cost me ~$10 several years ago

That is a lovely idea! I often do my lists and memos and sketches on scraps of paper which get lost all the time, maybe it's high time I did like you.
