I picked up this book from the library after reading an enthusiastic review by Lady Smaggle, and it was an excellent fashion tome. It's written by an Australian, and has great recommendations for Australian brands which is fun. It's geared towards formal wear, but there's still plenty of principles you can apply to everyday clothing. I found some of the principles a bit difficult to apply - for example, trying to emphasise my one killer feature (to use the language of the book) and cover up my unfortunate features sometimes turned into contradictory advice. Still, I don't think it's possible to write a book of fashion advice that applies to all body shapes everywhere, and I very much liked the style and tone of this one.
