Not much in here that I didn't know, but it was still a good exhortation to my stony heart.

I loved this book. Excellent styling advice that really got me thinking about outfits, colors and "looks" that would fit my body type.

The Book of Styling was a really fun read! As a self-proclaimed fashionista I didn't think I'd learn a lot, but boy was I wrong! I followed the tips in this book and re-vamped my closet, and I can say in all honesty that I've never been happier with the result. After learning all the little tips and tricks contained in this book, finding something to wear is a snap.

I appreciate receiving this as a GoodReads winner. I felt it was well laid out, and had something for everyone no matter what their sense of style. It had good basic info on how to dress flatteringly for your body type, to how to put together fun outfits. This was more a book for younger women- perhaps late middle school through high school or early college. After I read it, I gave it to a young friend in college and she has very much enjoyed going through it for tips and ideas.

This is another book from ZEST BOOKS that Sis keeps swiping off my TO READ pile. Its a beginners guide to fashion, with tips on how to attain certain "stylized" looks, and how to dress best for your body shape, etc.

Took me about an hour to flip through, but Sis has been keeping it in her room for "reference". I don't know how many times Ive had to put it back on my TBR after finding it in her room. lol

I read books like this all of the time. Why have I not been keeping track of them? This one was a favorite because it talks about the power of three, how to dress for your body type, shows different types of style, how to curate your closet and more. The only read downside was the lack of real pictures.

Lots of usefull advice, but the activities seemed to be for someone more into fashion than me. The las two chapters were abot how to be a stylist so I didn't read them.
Dani
