Top Customer Reviews
This book is not without problems. Despite the 2000 publishing date, it seems curiously outdated in some places. Does anyone still remember the knee-length knit vests that Bea Arthur wore as Maude, thirty years ago? Feldon apparently does. It's like the low-rise bootcut pant was never invented, either. All the pants shown are high-waisted, pleated and straight or tapered. Feldon also describes herself as a black-aholic. Most of us probably already have tons of black in our closets, and may be a little tired of it.
These detractions don't spoil the book for me, however. Feldon gives advice for women with short waists and long waists (and tells you how to determine which one you are), pear-shapes, large busts, and other variations, and most of us will relate to at least one of these types, and can benefit from advice in this book. If you get nothing else from this book remember: If it's in a fabric that is stiff, bulky, or shiny - it will make you look bigger. Take a look at your coworkers and see what I mean. These are rules you can use, right now, right where you are.
