The illustrations are cute and nice, but I think out of place in this book. The outfit illustrations in each section were far more helpful than Ms. Garcia's blabbing about wearing whatever you want "as long as you have confidence!!!!!!!!!!" But, because they were illustrations, they seemed a little too fanciful for real life. The illustration for Memorial Day shows bright tomato-red pants with a fuschia shirt and silver tassled belt; it makes for a cute illustration, but if you're not a cartoon it seems a little iffy. I would have preferred artful photographs of example pieces, akin to the InStyle style guide books.
All that being said, I still bought the book. It's entertaining and fun, kind of alike a giant fashion magazine. Don't expect anything life-changing though.
Whoa! I had to jump to the side just in case the fashion gods decided to strike me down for that last statement. I love all things Nina Garcia, you can read my other idolatrized reviews on her books.
I like the idea of this book, but I don't think it landed it where they were aiming. I would highly recommend her other books, especially The One Hundred.
The book did not contain any takeaways for me or provide any resources. The best part of this book was in the acknowledgments on page 318.
Proper fit is vital
Wear it like you mean it.
However if she writes another book, I will still read it. She will always be my niña.
Even the illustrations are helpful (not to mention just plain fabulous).
I also loved that this book lacks all pretense (which many fashion 'how-to's' tend to be coated in) and is filled with humor and just plain old good advice. Thumbs up to Nina for a creative, fun-filled, gorgeous little book that's both relevant and relatable to the non-fashionista's out there...i.e. me.
