Recommends it for: women who want to dress better
Recommended to Michelle by: Amazon
So helpful! I found this much more helpful than magazines, etc. It really helps you tailor what would look good on you and your body type. It gives principles for what works and why, as well as very accessible style rather than something that requires a great deal of time, effort, and money. Yes, it's going to require time, effort, and money, but the goal is to be practical and look good rather than trendy. Also, I'm glad she talks about how beauty radiates from within -- that how we feel and wh ...more

This one left me feeling a little...meh. I didn't really learn anything new from it or get inspired by it. I think part of the problem is that, despite the fact that the subject matter is totally visual, there were few illustrations, and none of them in color (even in the chapter on color). So it ended up feeling like a lot of general advice but not enough specific advice to really make me change anything. Not a bad book by any means, but I think there are better ones out there.

I know the author of this book, and in addition to her success in the fields of image consulting and marketing, she is thoughtful and compassionate, personable and fun. So when I found out she was a published author, I was excited to check out her book. While I don't know how much of the material I'll be incorporating into my own life and wardrobe, this guide is accessible, with a breezy style, and helpful for women who feel like they are stuck in an image rut or just want tips on advancing thei ...more

There's a lot of good nuggets of information within this book. If you've never had an image consultant or never "had your colors done", you'll learn a lot about what's what and why. If you have, there's still a lot to consider and apply to revising your own personal style.

It's not just about fashion - it's mostly about attitude. It's about realizing that, even when life is busy, we still make an impression on those around us with the way that we choose to dress and present ourselves. If you use

This is a great book if you have the confidence to determine what kind of style, shape, color, etc you are. If you are like me though, I had a difficult time trying to figure out which one I was. The other small problem in the book was the seemingly endless supply of money we are supposed to have to go from frumpy to fabulous. If I went by everything in this book and bought a new wardrobe, I'd be broke. Overall, there are some good tips in here to improve your appearance and presentation.

Some parts of this book made me want to bang my head on a wall (no, learning about fashion rules does not in any way inspire me to go to a mall, the mall still sounds horrifying no matter what), but it does a decent job of giving me a framework to understand how fashion works and how "this is cute" doesn't mean it will work on me or in my wardrobe.

I have recently lost a lot of weight, and need a total closet make-over. All of a sudden the world of fashion is available to me in a new way, and I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by it all. This book is helping me focus more clearly on my particular body shape, my style, and what essentials I need.

The pictures were really helpful in this book. There are a handful of ideas that I will take and use. Ultimately, I'm glad I read it (easy, fast read)--but there isn't anything ground-breaking. It isn't a must read for fashion ideas.

Nothing special. Was hoping for more specific advice - like "secrets of a stylist" kind of thing. There wasn't really anything here that I hadn't already gleaned from years of reading fashion magazines.

Informative and helpful. I was glad there were not color pictures because when I have read others with pictures, I have found it dates the book too quickly. I read magazines like In Style to keep up with colors and trends.

What a great book!
Absolutely everything one needs to know on how to dress.

For some reason my DNA did not include knowing how to dress. This book definitely helped me align who I am with what I wear! Thanks Natalie!

I wasn't expecting a lot of changes, but I was hoping for an idea or two. Basically this has been written before, and what it really needed color photography – lots of it.

The first frumpy to fabulous was a look more fun. The Science of Sexy is a lot more informative, don't waste your money like I did and skip this title.
