From the Publisher
"Every once in a great while, I’ll get a student applying for a Nonfiction class whose writing sample makes me say: "Good lord. Who is this?" And: "Say, how do I get to take credit for their success?" In fact, I can count just three people who I’ve had

    Disappointment

    What a waste of time going through this book. I wasn't sure if it was written by a 10-year-old. Such ridiculous advice "a tee with a communist icon +50 points." I guess her family never lived under a dictatorship.

    THE QUEEN OF THE FASHION BLOG WORLD

    This book is pure Winona. Her blog, Daddy Likey is a mixture of fashion tips, fashion mistakes, hilarious antecdotes
    and great writing. If you are not part of the fashion blog world, you are truly missing something by not reading Daddy Likey.

    Closet Confidential is an excellent book for those of us who don't have thousands of dollars for Loubatains and hundred dollar face cream. She also shares her own fashion mistakes,.

    This is not a picture book of movie stars who have unlimited funds and a stylist on board. It is a great practical book for the rest of us with self depreciating humor thrown in.

    A great buy!!! Winona Rocks!
