My Review:
This is a really nice book incorporating 16 chapters and 226 pages. When you read this book, don't skip pages. Each and every one has little nuggets you'll want to underline or highlight for quick reference. As a result of having this wonderful book to review, I've started making changes in my wardrobe. I'm starting out small and building to the bigger issues as I go along. I'm having to shop smarter than ever and it's fun, kind of like a treasure hunt. Of course, I can't afford some of the items Charla recommends, but I've found comparable items at a lower price that work just as well for me. It's a challenge, but we're up to it aren't we ladies?

It teaches you about each area of your body and gives appropriate clothing choices, even covering seasonal wear, evening wear, and workout clothing. I loved all the special little tips like: Why you don't shop for shoes in the morning. The I will never lists at the end of each section are priceless. Lots of photos cover the 'High Fat look vrs. the Low Fat look. Swap-out charts are designed to help us make better choices along with demonstrating different accessory looks. Brilliant Buy Boxes tell you where to buy, how much to pay, and even gives you online web addresses. The semi-gloss pages are filled with loads of beautiful fashion photos, and are formatted and organized for easy reading. Altogether a great book for any woman who wants to look her best.
