This is the best book on fashion ever written, in so many ways! AMAZING and fun! It's not just a book, it's also like a handbook to use for a quick reference or a quick inspirational boost. This book will never get lost on my bookshelves, and I won't be lending it to friends--I am sure after they read it, they would not want to return it to me.

Lawrence Zarian wrote in a manner that makes you feel as if he is speaking directly to you, with an intimate dialogue that embraces you and makes you feel loved, unique, noticed, appreciated, and special. It's like being given a personal tutoring session with a fashion expert, and an inspirational counseling session, too.

This book offers information that all women want to know about fashion, and it encourages self-respect and self worth. It helps the reader learn that no matter what size or shape we are, there is a style that will make us feel and look like a million bucks.

This is not just a great book for its informational value, it is also aesthetically pleasing to the eye. I LOVE the colors, font (style and size), the spaces between the lines for easy reading and elegance, the sections, the excellent headings and bullets that create a comfortable reading experience. I just can't praise this book enough for its comfort and ease of reading.

There are cute little illustrations and photos of before-and-after fashion makeovers. The whimsy and the warmth adds to the fun of reading the information presented. I will be purchasing additional copies of this book for my daughter and daughter-in-law. In fact, I plan to purchase this book as gifts to friends throughout the year for birthdays and Christmas. This book is not just a "must read," it is a "must have."

I highly recommend this book, and I suggest that you purchase more than one, because after you receive it, you will wish you had an extra copy to give to someone you love.

Lawrence Zarain provides good, basic information on putting together a complete wardrobe by giving Ten Commandments for a Perfect Wardrobe. I love it that the first commandment is about loving your body - and that is actually a common thread through the entire book. What's missing, though, is anything really new about expressing yourself through your personal style.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when you purchase a book outside of the "religion and spirituality" genre and find an author talking about God. There is certainly an audience that is interested in hearing about Mr. Zarain's 12-step program and his personal struggles, but I think it's inappropriate to include it in a book that is about fashion.

The other thing that I just couldn't get past is the recommendation that women in their 40's should dress in crème, black, navy, and gray, wear tailored clothes with "feminine details" and stick to simple jewelry. Maybe in his world, but in my world, Halle Berry, Jen Aniston, and Heidi Klum have re-written those rules. No matter your age, you should be able to express yourself through your style!

10 Commandments for a Perfect Wardrobe has given me the tools I’ve needed to look at my wardrobe with fresh eyes and whip up an outfit that is fashionable and right for me. I’ve personally avoided meeting myself, naked in the mirror, but the result of this exercise was love of self from the skin out. Sigh, giggle, admire and fix it! Lawrence Zarian has cajoled me into a place of peace with his humorous, heartwarming and cleverly written book! Read it and discover undeniable, new confidence!

I love fashion books, mostly because fashion has been my career for over 25 years. And then along came Lawrence's fashion book and I not only loved the book, but the man who wrote it. Why? Because he bares his soul and his issues. He becomes just like everyone else with their insecurities, only unlike most fashion people, LZ shares his with the reader. And how does that affect the information in the book? Wonderfully because the reader identifies with him and likes him and is not only ready, but eager to go on his fashion journey. And that fashion journey will show you everything you need to know to look fabulous and feel fabulous. Kudos LZ for writing a book that is real, honest and informative, plus a great read. Take his Ten Commandments and become the beautiful person you are, the LZ way. You can't help but love this guy and this book! Christine Schwab

I got this book for my wife, who's a big fan of Lawrence Zarian's makeover segments and tips. I'm so glad I did. She read the book cover-to-cover in less than a day, and I already notice a spring in her step and a renewed confidence. This book is full of very useful advice that's written in a fun and accessible way. Definitely a keeper!

This book is a must-have if you want to look stylish, fashionable but more importantly feel good about yourself. Lawrence shares his life experiences and that's why he's so good at what he does. It's definitely one of the best, most useful style books I've ever read. It's actually a realistic approach to building a wardrobe full of fashion AND function using any type of budget and saving money! Finished it in less than 24 hours and now ready to apply what I've learned to my closet!

This book is so fun, and not just for women. Not only were there
concrete fashion tips, but more so, each chapter delivered fun quotes
("Even I don't wake up looking like Cindy Crawford"--Cindy Crawford) and
anecdotes from Lawrence and celebrities. I particularly like chapter 3
which shared intimate aspects of Lawrence's life and made me realize I
was reading a book that went far beyond fashion tips! Fun reading, easy
reading, great print for beautifully organized, I am really happy I
picked this one up! Thanks Lawrence, and hurry up with the next
commandments, I can only imagine and can't wait to read it.

I've always been impressed with the makeovers I've seen Lawrence do on television and this book is almost as good as having him with you. He covers the what, where and how of shopping smart for the look that's right for you. It's a book you'll keep forever because the advice, often dispensed with humor and affection, is timeless and classy, just like Lawrence. I'm so glad I bought this book.
