Does your love life need a makeover?

At last, a dating rulebook for fashion lovers! All’s Fair in Love and Wardrobe puts a uniquely glamorous spin on shopping for love, offering pearls of wisdom from a venerable fashion editor. Who better to help you resist wayward temptation and avoid potentially expensive mistakes?

With stiletto-sharp wit, this little guide reinvents the dos and don'ts of dating, covering everything from The Bra Code to the etiquette of chatting up a living mannequin. By the time your nail polish is dry, you'll also learn to:

• Give your love life a makeover
• Write a lipstick letter like you mean it
• Prevent first date faux pas
• Pack for a proper getaway (as in, get away from a creeper…fast!)
• Communicate effectively with the right statement pieces
• And more!

Consider this statement-making little book your front-row seat to the madcap antics of the modern guy—featuring more than one hundred rules on shopping for love, eye candy fashion illustrations, and a standard Curate-a-Date application for weeding out ill-fitting duds and heartbreaking heels.

I'm not sure whether to classify this book as humor, dating, fashion or self-help. A darling little gem packed with nuggets of fashion and dating wisdom and a really fun read for single and married girls alike. It took me right back to my single days in New York. My favorite line: "When God closes a door, he opens a Neiman Marcus." #mustread

I adore fashion books and have always had a thing for dating advice (think He's Just Not That Into You), so naturally I loved every minute of this! This book is hysterical, kind of like The Bro Code for women but with a style and beauty twist. Loved the Brocabulary section and dating tips from the beauty department. And seriously, I want the gorgeous watercolor illustrations framed on my walls.

I really enjoyed this spoofy little book. It was a welcome relief from all the heavy, intense novels I've been reading. If you like fashion and humor, along the lines of White Girl Problems or Like I Give A Frock, this one's for you. It's packed with dating advice written through the eyes of the elusive and illustrious fashion editor a la Anna Wintour, who curates her dates like she curates her wardrobe. Perfect for spring cleaning your love life.

If Anna Wintour wrote a dating book, this would be IT.

In a nutshell, my fave parts of this book included the BROCABULARY (so hilarious, including Brosacea and Abrocrombie), the real stories, and the dating application for curating dates like you curate your wardrobe. I suddenly have a desire to makeover my love life and spring clean my little black book!!!!!

Still laughing...this book goes down in history as one of the cutest, most creative fashion books I've ever read. It's packed with rules for dating that are synonymous with rules for dressing well, along with real-life (horror) stories that provide examples of why the rules were written. The Bra Code? Yes, please. I was expecting this to be a really light humor read, but it's actually chock full of REAL advice. If you're single, love shopping, and out there mingling you will definitely benefit from leaning how to "shop for love." I bought three of these as gifts for the holidays. They won't fit in stockings (the book is much bigger than I expected), but it does look adorable with a little bow on top!

I really enjoyed this, does not disappoint.  My favorite part is the dating application in the back of the book. If only I could really distribute them before a date!

I love love love love this book! Every page made me laugh and has a gorgeous illustration on it that I want on a graphic tee. This book was a fun read and I actually learned a little bit too. It's a real dating guide wrapped up as a fashion spoof. Too cute.

ive always been a fan of books you dont have to read in one sitting, but can put down, do make some tea, and pick it right back up again this one is just like that, with short stories interlaced between 120-something rules for dating smart and recipes for things like GLAM CHOPS and SHRIMP LOUIS VUITTON

After reading this, and LOVING it, I bought three of these off Forever 21 for my girlfriends for the holidays. It's a little to big to fit in a stocking :) but I know they'll get a kick out of it. My fave: "skinny jeans and relationships should allow room to breathe."

It's a little guide on par with The Bro Code, not an actual novel, so it's a pretty fast read.  I devoured it in about 3 hours.

Sassy little must-read.

The teaser in ELLE magazine had me running for the nearest Barnes and Noble, but this book was not in my local store. A really funny, fashionable spin on dating that makes it feel oh so glamourous. Not since Sex And The City have love and wardrobe collided so expertly.

Funny and also insightful. It's like the opposite of Man Repelling.
TrueJast More than 1 year ago
It was featured by ELLE magazine so I knew it was going to be good. 121 rules for shopping like a fashion editrix? Turns out it's hysterical and on point.

Witty, hilarious dating wisdom. If you've been on a date, you will relate to this book.  Beautiful illustrations.  The perfect gift for your girlfriends and yourself.
