This is a very nice, well-written book, but I think the title is misleading. I pride myself on looking chic and up-to-date, despite living in a bland, cold-climate midwest city and being a mother of 4. Years ago, when my husband and I were starting out, this would have been more valuable. Then, I would have shopped at the Salvation Army. Now, I try to track down the items that will make the most impact with my regular basics, and I try to find everything at the best price possible. Finding Pendleton wool slacks, a Talbots sweater and an Ann Taylor t-shirt for 50 cents each sounds like good advice for budget-conscious 55+ year olds, but I'll stick to the advice found in books similar the new Lucky Manual of Shopping as well as common sense I've learned over the years. But this is good advice for those just starting out, those with large families on a shoestring budget and for those who look for good quality clothes to last many years, and are not necessarily too concerned with fashion.

To be completely honest, I've not gotten past the third chapter yet. So to be fair, I will leave 3 stars. After about the 8th page, it occurred to me that references to "church", the "bible" and "God" were appearing with unusual regularity. By the second chapter, these words/references were showing up on virtually every single page. Now, I'm pretty open-minded and feel that individuals are entitled to express their beliefs as they see fit; that being said, a fashion guide book isn't exactly the most appropriate arena for that expression. Some may not be phased by this...but it kinda freaked me out. Just something to be aware of...

I picked up the book thinking it might give me some practical advice. Which it did: buy what you look good in not what's trendy, hunt for bargains, etc. Nothing earthshattering but okay advice. What I found bizarre and offensive however was the frequent references to God and Christianity. It was not billed as a "Christian's Guide to Shopping" yet it had passages that instructed women to "cover their bosoms" "as Christians" need to be modest. Is this necessary? I found it offensive and off putting.

Format: Paperback
I mistakenly got this book from the library because I was interested in another book with a similar title. I must say I was taken aback by the religious mentions on almost every page. This book showed a frugal way to shop through thrift stores, garage sales, etc. That is not a bad thing but the presentation was all wrong. There was one part describing a mother and 10-year old girl shopping for shoes that just depressed me. It was so bent on finding the "sensible" shoes that the enjoyment of finding a great deal was sucked out. In another part of the book some woman was chastised for working part time when the "mending" was piling up. That silly little job cost her more money in the long run because she just wasn't doing the "right" thing as a mother and wife. That was it for me. What a waste of paper.

Collaboratively written by JoAnn Janssen and Gwen Ellis, Dress Like A Million Bucks Without Spending It! is a practical and economic guide of making the most out of a personal clothing budget. Tips for shopping, organizing, accentuating the positive, keeping an eye out for quality, learning how to sew buttons or fix split seams, passing shoestring budget ways on to the children, and more are all covered in this superbly organized, "user friendly", and highly recommended primer.
