Very good buy Aug 31, 2008
I found this guide very interesting and useful. Every woman who wants to improve her look should have it!
Excellently written May 13, 2008
This book was a great purchase. I was not disappointed with this book; it gives good examples, but doesn't suggest you be a clone of someone else. Good photos, do's and don't, and helpful information and advice --even on undergarments! Good book to keep as reference from time to time. They thought of everything in this one! Loved it.
No strong feelings about this book -- but perhaps I'm the wrong audience Apr 7, 2008
I don't have strong feelings either way about this book. It's organized well and includes interesting information about fashion history, proper fit, and clothing care, but nothing that I've really used.
Perhaps I'm the wrong audience. I'm a young professional in my late 20s working in a creative field, and I'm on a budget. Some of the tips in this book -- like, say, the statement that most women should own a pair of flesh-toned pumps -- really do not apply to me and my needs. The styles here, I believe, are meant to be timeless. The pieces it notes seem, for the most part, to be items to invest in. I'm just not at that point -- if you are, perhaps this book will meet your needs better than it did mine.
In summary, while I enjoyed the book and have no complaints about it, I also did not find any practical suggestions that fit me and my life. I hope this review helps steer others toward or away from the book, depending on their needs.
No secrets is here Mar 14, 2008
I bought this book and the Lucky Guide to Shopping and found the tips given in the other book to be better. If you were deciding which one to buy, I would say that I didn't find this book as helpful in identifying basic or classic pieces and there are relatively few practical shopping tips that I could use in the future.
Plenty of content Apr 24, 2007
This is much better book than the second In Style book. There are detailed tips on how to look for the best fit and what shapes flatter which body style. I was hoping to see more pictures of actual clothes so that's the reason for four stars.
