Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Finding your personal fashion style can be as emotionally rewarding as it is aesthetically pleasing. Marlene Wallach's My Look utilizes the author's professional savvy to help teens and other young people to find the right clothes for every occasion.
Children's Literature - Barbara Wheatley
"Whatever the size, don't get hung up on it...the number on the clothing tag doesn't mean you're big or small or have anything to do with you at all. It's just a number." As one of the books in the "My Tween Lifestyle Collection," this book strives to uphold the idea that a good self image and wearing what makes you feel good makes you beautiful. Wallach, who is president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teen Modeling Agency, tells the reader that "the idea is to wear things that work for the unique person you are." One drawback is the fashion quiz that includes shallow answer choices such as the following: "When you walk into your new room on the first day of school, you like to have all eyes on your from the moment you open the door," "Your preferred mode of transportation to school is whichever of your friends' parents have the nicest car," and "You love the spotlight and it loves you." One chapter of the book gives practical advice about learning about the basics of fashion in regards to color, texture, and fit and emphasizes that good fashion does not need to be expensive. A chapter focusing on assessing and dressing the reader's body shape also tackles common myths about clothing, such as only skinny girls should wear miniskirts, which Wallach answers with "micro-minis are only cool for models on the runway...a good choice for your skirt length is one that falls a few inches above the knee." Another section discusses shopping in your own closet, organizing your clothes and accessories, and cleaning and caring for clothes. Sprinkled throughout the book are Memos from Marlene, fill in pages, and Fun Facts. Colorful photos of young girls and simple drawings expand upon the text, while spiral binding makes it more like a diary than a book. Reviewer: Barbara Wheatley
School Library Journal
Gr 5–8—Wallach, the president of Wilhelmina Kids & Teens modeling agency, knows her audience and lends a credible feel to these books. Chapters in Beauty cover hair and makeup and skin care, and those in Look address such topics as finding colors that will look good and closet organization. Both titles include a "Just Ask Marlene" question-and-answer section and a final quiz. The art design is satisfactory even with the slightly stock feel of some photos, but there are several fill-in sections. Wallach's beauty and fashion tips skew heavily toward current trends and liberal use of beauty products. The tone is upbeat and encourages girls to look beyond the pages of fashion, yet the photos, like those in today's magazines for girls and women, only show models who are slim and chic. The look is funky (though some would balk at the whole idea of fashion and makeup books for tweens from the outset). There's nothing new or different here, but the overall design and cheerful tone provide a solid guide for fashion-forward devotees of Seventeen and Teen Vogue.—Elaine Baran Black, Georgia Public Library Service, Atlanta

Interviews & Essays

Tips from Marlene Wallach, author of the My Tween Lifestyle Collection and President, Wilhelmina Kids and Teens modeling agency:
Want to dress up for school but can't stand to wear heels? Look into a pair of sparkly ballet slippers-they'll certainly do the trick and are totally comfortable!
When shopping for school supplies, sneak in an extra pencil case and turn it into a makeup bag. Put you lip gloss, mascara, and blush in the case for maximum organization-pop in a small mirror too!
Don't have access to gym equipment? There's no better way to get a cardiovascular workout and strengthen your butt and thigh muscles than to run up and down the stairs. It's the original Stairmaster!
Remember to pay someone a compliment at least once a day. It doesn't cost you anything to make someone feel good.
Pop four handfuls of grapes in a plastic zip-top bag and put it in the freezer. Do it in the morning so you'll have a tasty snack when you get home from school.
