I have her other 2 books and am greatly looking forward to this one. Nina Garcia writes in a clear no-nonsense way and offers advice on how to hold and create your own personal style. The look she favors blends classics with new trends to create a timeless look all your own.

There are many easy tips in her books to make anyone's wardrobe look new and fantastic. One of my favoriate tips was to have clothing altered for you. So simple and easy, but one never thinks of changing the hem on a shirt to balance the look, or to buy long sleeve tee shirts and alter them to 3/4 length to cover tops of arms better then short sleeves.

Out of all the fashion advise out there; Nina Garcia is the one to listen too.

This book has some useful material in it, but I wouldn't buy it again. As another reviewer mentioned, it's repetitive, and it states the obvious quite a bit. The first part is better than the second part...the organization seems to "fall apart," and the information isn't as specific or helpful as I thought it would be.

    Keep Shopping!

    This book could have been condensed down into a brochure! Much blabbering about nothing....take a pass. Her other book, The One Hundred: A Guide to the Pieces Every Stylish Woman Must Own, is fabulous!

    Style Guide

    Nina Garcia is very knowledgeable when it comes to fashion. This book is like sharing advice with a girlfriend. She can be a little repetitive, but I understand she's just trying to get the point across. Overall I like it, and would recommend it.

    Sara

    A fourteen year old girl comes in. Her dark brown hair had streaks of magenta, violet & deep blue & came to just below her jawline. Her bangs were completely deep blue. She trys on a cashmere thigh-length dress with one strap. It is magenta with slashes of turquoise, sky blue & periwinkle that go from the bottom of the strap on her right side to the hem of the dress on her left side. She also tries on white 5 & 1/2-inch high heels that came half way up her calves & were made of real leather. The purse she trys is also made of real leather but it is magenta & of the latest fashion. She is satisfied with her choice & takes it all off. She puts back on her pink cotton shirt, white denim jeans & ballet flats with a sequined pink camo design on them. She goes to the the second result to get makeup & maybe another outfit or two. ¿Sara¿

    Carly

    *comes back in and changes into a brezzy white strapless dress. It has a diamond band about two inches thick just above the end of her ribcage. The top of the dress has been pleated but not ironed down, and in between the unirones pleats r little chains that look like something you put a necklace charm on. She stars at herself blreathless, then hikes up her skirts and shows the others*
