In the area for what to wear to a job interview there is what's in your bag?, it says in one spot, "If you are interviewing for a receptionist job,don't carry a Louis Vuitton Monogram. Never upstage the boss." For us in the real world, that won't be a problem. This book goes through outfits for work,day to night, life events to dream travel. The illustrations were cute, pictures of real items would have been a better visual. Nina has a lot of style, I'll give her that. If you haven't the sense how to dress for any occasion i.e. a baby shower, a wedding, a funeral you might find some handy tips. I learned two things from this book, one is I didn't wear a proper outfit when I met my future in-laws. Second, I'm not active enough to need to know what to wear to a Art Opening or a Black-tie Wedding. That made me a little sad inside. Hey Mrs.Garcia, next time write a book for fashion, on a realistic budget. (think blue collar workers who want to look amazing in their tiny cubicle.) I think it will be a challenge for all involved.

I believe that some women have a better chance of filling their closets wisely, thus avoiding clutter, by gaining knowledge about how to dress and shop. Nina Garcia’s Look Book is one of the books I would recommend to such a client.  It is a funny, highly personal look at what-to-wear fashion: pants vs. dresses, when to go casual, time-honored tips, tricks and all. Look Book is indeed arranged by occasion, from job interview to New Year’s Eve Party.  The occasions are grouped by themes such as “life events.” But Ms. Garcia, the fashion director of Marie Claire magazine and a judge on Lifetime Television’s Project Runway, goes far beyond fashion.  She offers opinions on everything from how to ask for a raise to surviving meeting your significant other’s parents; honors her charities of choice; and decorates her pages with irreverent, wise, timeless quotes of gifted people ranging from Amelia Earhart to Lauren Bacall. The quotes could be a book in themselves. A reader will not, however, find guidance on how to dress.  There are no formulas for accommodating body-shape, no hints about color choices.  Unhappily, Ms. Garcia also engages in the common, bewildering-to-the-outsider habit of name-dropping – designers and their styles are referenced as if they are a reader’s quirky family members. And like many style editors, Ms. Garcia assumes that everyone knows the basics, concerning pattern, fabrics, etc., as she converses about options.  I for one wish someone would explain bouclé.  The book is not for beginners, but it is educational and entertaining.
