A helpful book that I had to leave it in Jakarta... *so sad*. I bought it accidentally :) when I saw some books in sale during my training trip in Singapore.

It gives valuable informations about appropriate outfits according to some conditions. Very helpful for me who at first did not know much about the right outfits for some moments in different seasons (winter, summer, etc).

Thank's to Oprah Show that introduced me to this book and these two authors.

This book is broken down by occasions which include the interview, work wear, work to play, school events, summer wedding, winter wedding, summer holiday, winter holiday, partying, and underwear (ok, not an occasion). If I was reading this book in 2003 when first published I would suggest this as a great resource, but the fashion suggested is dated. There is not any additional information presented that makes the book worthwhile.
Phyllis
Usually I have a judge not lest ye be judged attitude about fashion, but I think when you repeatedly push the pants under dress look as appropriate for any occasion you immediately forfeit your right to declare yourself an authority on what to wear.
Sara
Excuse the strange British fashion twists (odd wedding hats and dowdy skirts)--this book has wonderful before and after illustrations. Bookmark pages and lend this to a friend with a "whale tail" or "double bubble" problem.
Lorraine Haataia
Interesting examples including side-by-side photos of what not to wear and what to wear to various events--I like the format with the explanations. Some of the styles may be more suitable to the UK than the US.

Recommends it for: Elementary teachers
Dear colleagues (near and far) I implore you - set aside the thematic sweaters, think beyond elastic waist bands and remember you are a teacher not a laundry basket. This book may very well be the impetus you need.
