Now women with any kind of paycheck can spend less and save more while looking more fashionable that ever.

MY REVIEW -
Well I will be the first to admit - I am not much into fashion. I don't pay attention to the latest trends and I do not have a high profile job (I work with kids!).
BUT - I did think this was a nice little book! I actually really enjoyed looking at it. I am sure someone who is much more into fashion than I am would LOVE this. Like my daughter, for example, I am sure this would be one of her favorite books and one that she would always be referring to.
And there are tons of full color pictures!


This book goes through pretty much everything you would need to know, from finding your body type, how to dress for your type, how to dress for your age group, do's and don'ts, casual, work, and dressy, shoes, accessories, how to shop the sales, and how to do your hair and make-up.
She shows different celebrities and teaches you "how to get the look". She gives you step-by-step instructions on how to get your hair to look the way you want it to. I think this part is awesome!
Here's an example (this is a simple one, some of them are more involved)-

There are even suggestion for what to wear on a date! Like who doesn't need help with that, right?
I think young or old, thick or thin - you can use the help of this book. And if not, at least you will have fun looking at it!
Thank you "Orangeberry Book Tours" for sending me this e-book to read and review!
