I thought this book would be fun and breezy, like Tim Gunn's books on the same subject. It was not. What it was, instead, was a very long list of accessories, some of which were not fashion (Note to Ms. Garcia: An Ipod is not fashion. A passport is not fashion. I get that you're selling a lifestyle here, but for real...) It contained, of course, the required items (LBD, jeans, blazer etc) but nothing of substance. Useless. Tim Gunn's book is much better, and I also recommend the UK version "What not to wear" books.
