Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets of a Style Diva: A Get-Inspired Guide to Your Creative Side?
the prettiest book in the store Feb 20, 2007
If you are an artist, a designer or an illustrator, you should check out this book to marvel at how it is laid out. I didn't find the reading enjoyable or helpful, but the illustration and design of this book is virtually a how-to manual for any designer trying make a dry book sizzle.
self promotion-not style advice Jan 20, 2007
In this book, the author seemed to feel the need to promote herself rather give great advice. It was amazing how in every single chapter she found a way to toot her own horn and just added tidbits of ideas around stories of her grandness. While she has certainly had an interesting life, I felt that the main focus of the book was more on her experiences and successes than offering what the book promises. The whole book can be summed up in the writing of the About The Author section. Too much bragging- not enough practical advice.
Never judge a book by its cover! Nov 26, 2006
What I learned today:
Never judge a book by its cover!
On a recent shopping trip to Target, where I picked up tons of decorating stuff for my first own apartment, I came across this book, thought it sounded good and the drawings really looked cute, too.
I quickly realized what a mistake and total waste of money it was!
I was hoping for helpfully advice in decorating my place, dah...isn't that what the cover promises? After having to read how great the authors live is over and over, I got incredible frustrated by the lack of any kind of helpful advice, any kind! This book has absolutely nothing in it - nothing!
The author tells us to go watch movies, walk around in our neighborhood, copy the style of our friends, write down our ideas in a journal, and keep a file of catalog pages and such. Oh and if you get creative at night you are allowed to get up in the wee hours and work around the house, no, I am not kidding, I wish I were...
This book is such a joke, I wish I had saved my money. I can't return it now because I took one of the style quizzes with ink pen, for which nowhere in the book are any answers by the way, not that I even care about it anymore now...
Run as far as you can from that FLOP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks for nothing, Susie. Nov 11, 2006
I am living alone for the first time, and have been having a hard time combing through my eclectic tastes and translating them into focused ideas suitable for furnishing and decorating my livingroom. I thought "A Get-Inspired Guide to [My] Creative Side" was just what I needed. I was even willing to overlook the tired "Diva" in the title. What a joke.
Ms. Coelho's advice to someone like me?: Choose a focus! Make a decision! Hello, duh? The basic message of the book is pay attention to what works and what you like about whatever you see, in whatever context (her ingenius suggestions: Watch a movie! Go shopping! Look at your friends! Get inspired by nature!), and write down your ideas when you have them. How is this new or helpful advice?
When she isn't stating the obvious, she's name-dropping and telling stories about how great she is and how great her life is. Boring. Useless. Pass on this one.
Worthless junk! Oct 26, 2006
Zero stars - but unfortunately that was not an option.
I recently got married and now live with my husband in a lovely 2,600sf townhouse with 9' ceilings; windows overlooking a small backyard; a galley-style kitchen; and a fireplace which sits at an angle to the room. Aside from how to deal with those things I was looking for general advice on fabrics, lighting, flooring, walls, etc.
What I got with this book is absolutely zero, nothing, nada; there is not one single helpful advice in it. If there is, or someone has any ideas or recommendations, can you please point those out to me - thanks.
True, it tells you to keep your space clutter free, like a Mom telling her 3 year old to tidy her room. Aside from that I am supposed to look around, figure it out on my own, oh and whenever I get an idea I write it down in a journal.
Sorry, but this book just sucks, for the first time in my life I felt like requesting my money back. I wish I had read some of those reviews before wasting my money, are the positive ones from the publishing house?
