This book is great! You should buy it for all of your friends, and one for yourself! It is funny and sarcastic. The art is awesome! This really is just a fun book, perfect for any female with a sense of humour!

I bought another book by this (these, really, as there are two people writing and one person illustrating) "group" and loved it. I ordered this one and really enjoy having it. It's not a huge tome, it's just a fun read - although I never get tired of the images. I won't say it's great literature, but it sure is fun - and I like having it here to read and look through every so often. I don't get tired of it - and always enjoy it. I have recommended it to some of the people I think have a good sense of humor and are not nutsy about fashion - just enjoy it.

Have you ever had cocktails or lattes on a patio by a street corner with a group of girlfriends? And did you ever play this exciting game where you critique all the passer- guys, awarding them a score from 1 to 10(if you know what I mean). Michi Girl is that really hip, quick witted friend of yours, who always comes up with all the 'good ones,' only this time its in fashion speak. Step aside TMZ, E!, Fashion police or whatever else is out there. Michi will wow you with her spot on observations about the idiosyncrasies of fashion. Like I give a Frock is outrageously funny. It will leave your permanently in stitches and wanting more. Michi Girl dishes on everything, from seasonal colour transformations, to tracksuits and the dos and don'ts of denim. . .
Michi wonders whether is just her or is there a trend of renaming colours just for the sake of it every season. Gray becomes moccasin; White- snow; Beige becomes conch; And green goes to fern naturally. She adds that she won't be surprised if a 6 year old school girl is the suburbs is currently whining to her teacher that she has run out the Hermes finger-paint. No kidding, what's with the fancy names for colours these days anyway. Off white? Do you mean beige? But I digress.
As far as track suits go, Michi is uncertain why it is called a Track suit. The track she gets. But suit? It almost looks like there's some professionalism about running around like you've given up on life. If you are not McHammer, or you're not going running- spare the general public( Note to self. Although I must admit, some tracksuits are fun and they make your butt pop). Michi has similar opinions about the denim. Denim is always called denim for a reason. Every year millions of innocent denims are subjected to careless experiments.
