She offers sage advice on choosing a style, shopping, hiding your flaws, and bringing out your best. Dano has written a guide to looking and feeling good, with sensible steps that anyone can follow, but few people do. To look in your closet is to feel like a lost cause, but to read Dano's guide is to realize that you can achieve a look that is both pleasing and realistic for you. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Linda Dano does a great job of showing how smart it is to choose basic colors for your wardrobe and to maximize there. She demonstrates the numerous choices you have by choosing "simple" basics in quality fabrics, that you can then mix and match with many different accessories. I really liked how she spelled out and listed exactly what basics you need. I've followed her advice and have a very versatile wardrobe for under $2000. I'm sure it will last a long time, as well, as I purchased well-made, quality items.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Although I found it a little frustrating that she took a one size fits all attitude to what a woman needs in her wardrobe, I still think the book is invaluable. She helps you build a core wardrobe in a timeless manner. I bought this book after having a baby and finding that my body shape had changed, I found great advice that helped me discover the most flattering styles for me, and stop wasting money on clothes that weren't quite right. She is a gem.

I was apprehensive about buying a book done by a celebrity. Most of the time the information is useless for the average person. This book was well worth the money. She explains how to develop a great wardrobe without buying that many outfits. I hope she will do another book, because I for one will buy it.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
When I graduated from college, I realized that all I had in my closet were jeans and T-shirts. I didn't have anything appropriate to wear to a job interview. I also had very little money to spend on new clothes. I knew of Linda Dano from her work on Another World and her columns in Soap Opera Digest, so I took a chance on this book. This book is a fabulous fountain of information for building a wonderful wardrobe. By knowing the items of clothing that I would get the most use out of, I managed to build a wardrobe that is versatile and will last for years. Between Linda Dano's great advice and witty style, this book is a winner all the way.

I have long been an admirer of Ms Dano - from Another World, to Attitudes on Lifetime, to One Life to Live, to QVC. She has a wonderful style about her that makes one take notice without being overpowering or too over the top.
This book is a really helpful guide of finding your own style and building your own wardrobe. She helps you thru the difficult parts and shows you how to build - one piece at a time. She gives so many helpful hints on accessorizing to keep your look fresh rather than faddish. And the very best of all, it can be attained affordably!
I took her advice to heart and have the beginnings of a wonderful wardrobe that will help me to keep stylish for years.
Heck, it even helped me to win an award for personal style.
Thanks, Ms. Dano, for a much needed book for the average woman.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is for anyone who has a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. Ms. Dano guides the reader through the process of creating a classic wardrobe that will stand the test of time and fads. I used to dread shopping because so many of my purchases ended up languishing, unworn, in the back of my closet. No more! Now I know what I'm looking for.
My only complaint is that more time and space was spent on wardrobes for work and not leisure wear. And I could have lived without the chapters on makeup and weight loss; I'd love an entire book from Linda Dano focusing solely on clothing.

Linda Dano's book is excellent and provides tips on everything from wardrobe to skincare and haircare products. She helps you identify which clothes look best on your body type, and shows you which items you absolutely can't live without. A great walk-through book! She really gives you the basics for becoming a polished and well-groomed woman. It would be great to see this book updated in 1999.
