This book is a keeper. I found it very helpful. There's an abundance of books out there about how to dress and look better, but what sets this book apart from the others are all the glossy photos of the dos and don'ts. It's very helpful to see side by side which outfits are flattering and which ones aren't. So many books in this genre are so heavy on the text and skimpy on the photos. This author must have realized this because she has photos on nearly every page with real people wearing clothes you can find at department stores. I'm a very visual person so the photos were very illuminating. I'm no slouch when it comes to fashion. I've read enough fashion magazines and watched enough fashion programs to know what's what, but I now have an even better understanding of what's flattering to my body type. The proposed solutions aren't expensive or impractical. This is a great book for any woman really. I think all of us could learn a thing or two from Amy Goodman.
What an excellent book to read and keep on hand - this is definitely one I am putting on the keep shelf. Although I am pretty good, not excellent, but pretty good and getting rid of clothes that haven't been worn in awhile; I am terrible about the amount of clothes that come in the door (no comment from the peanut gallery). I find something that fits and I assume that I will never see it again, so I order 3 more in different colors or just 3 more. So, I must admit that my closet could use some tossing - especially now that police uniforms are on their way, a little stressed.
Ok, to review the book and not my closet. A great go to book to determine what should stay and what should be evicted from the closet. I skimmed through the parts that I may already have a handle on, but I spent a lot of time on the beauty section. Sweet and concise, the beauty section was a great overview of what products could be added to your shelf and routine and would could be deleted. Then the accessories, a great section that would help any woman pair down or amp up what they use to beef up their wardrobe and a particular outfit. All in all, this book definitely helped set priorities in my closet and made me want to sit down in it and evaluate the situation.
A purchase for anyone graduating college and heading into the work world or may be in a style or closet rut. I think everyone could grab a tip or idea from this book.
