LZ's take on self-respect, self-confidence and individual style left me excited to reexamine not only my wardrobe, but my self image! His writing style is entertaining, and inviting. He reflects a lot on his own journey - a great personal touch. LZ emphasizes that you don't need a big budget to have a classy and sophisticated wardrobe. I wasn't left feeling like I needed to run to the closest high-end store to update my closet. LZ's philosophy for a perfect wardrobe is affordable! I'd recommend this book to anyone! It would make a great birthday gift for a friend!
This is an incredible compilation of USEFUL information! Covers things like how to properly hang, store and clean your clothes. Also, what basics make for the most useful and functional wardrobe. I learned a lot about wardrobe and fashion terms and absolutely loved all the celebrity qutoes and motivation from experts. It is kind of a fashion bible that you can refer to forever - timeless!!! fun gift for a teenage or college age girl going off on her own, too.
Lawrence, thank you so much for writing this book. I was watching Dr. Phil and so you do a makeover. I was so stunned out the outcome of the young women. Then he advertised your book and I knew I just had to have it. Your book has become my favorite of all time. It has helped me grow and be more self-confident about my clothing decisions. Your book made me laugh, cry, and laugh some more. It was like you were right here with me. My entire life I have wanted to dress with style and class. I never looked like a bag lady or anything but the run way style was something I dreamed of. Life didn’t work out that way but your book has inspired me to take pride in myself and dress the way I like. I made photo’s to remind myself of how I’m dressing now and how I intend to make changes for the better. I’m grateful to you for this book. You are truly an amazing man. Best wishes on all your future endeavors. Lisadave18.
I was excited to read this book. Being a mom of 5 children and 4 stepchildren and 4 grandchildren I am ready to try new looks. I thought this would have 10 types of clothes and give ideas for each body shape. And what I got was so much more. The author shows you how to be happy with your body and you can look sexy no matter what size. I would definitely recommend this to my friends.
