The financial advice in this book is excellent, with a step by step system to help you clean up you finances and progress towards a fruitful retirement. My main complaint with the book is simply that the author can't seem to write a page without some kind of pop culture or fashion reference. While I understand the book is geared toward women who spend frivolously on these items, I find the repetitive references to expensive fashion irritating and somewhat disjunctive when spliced in a paragraph about 401(k)s. The concept of "you spend too much on this" is clear from the cover as well as the first few pages, and therefore the entire book need not be riddled with references to designers.

That being said, this book is an excellent resource for all career minded women once you get past the author's need to establish her credibility as a fashionista in nearly ever section of the book.

You know, I really didn't love this book. I think I was expecting financial tips and tricks, some of which were in there, but this book is more like a shopping guide. The book tells you where to go, how to get deals, etc. It's like, saving by shopping at a discount, during sales, etc. You're still spending money on things you don't need with this book.

Not what I expected AT ALL. Definitely go online and read some excerpts from this book (outside of Chapter 1) before you buy it so that you know if you're getting what you expected.

i guess i haven't gotten over the fact that i'm not rich by now! i mean i'm a savvy girl in my 30's with her own pad and a gulp, cat. okay maybe i'm not that fab, but in my mind i am. so when i decided to purchase this book, i thought it would solve all of my problems, albeit i recieved the book yesterday and it already has me going through my bills and trying to understand the acronym of FICO score. so when i started reading the book, i was surprised that it wasn't condesending or snobby. i really think that it'll help with my financial situation. thanks amazon.

FINALLY!! finally, someone is actually writing personal finance books aimed solely at single women!!! This is a huge and untouched market and I thought that author Hill did an absolutely wonderful job of leveling the personal finance against a healthy dose of humor.

There are tons of ideas that are both doable and inspiring - she does not expect you to have $50,000 in the bank when you take on your new finance program - but rather, she encourages you to make little changes by little changes - starting with limiting your shopping and love of shoes.

This book is a little gem and I loved it!! it was entertaining and a great read with lots of very helpful hints. The author is neither preachy or boring - its a perfect blend.

If reading about personal finance is about as exciting to you as organizing your sock drawer... this gem of a book is for you. In a fun, breezy, highly-readable manner Catey Hill tells you exactly what you need to know to create a "new financial you." Whether your vice is credit card debt, student loans, or figuring out how to negotiate a higher salary, there something here for every woman who wants to move from "financial cope" to "financial hope." This year, invest in yourself and read SHOO, JIMMY CHOO!

I'm no finance person. Nor am I much of a self-help book person. But Catey Hill's Shoo, Jimmy Choo! is the perfect book for someone like me. With Catey's guidance, I've learned how to take charge of my financial present and future, even if my past was a little bit checkered. So buy this book - one for yourself, and one for each of your friends with whom you've indulged in those spontaneous shopping binges!

I've read a couple of books on how get your finances in order. I have to say this book has a little bit of everything. I truly enjoy the chapter of learning regarding types of investments and definitions, since I'm just starting to learn. It's a great book to read and it will give you the insight you will need to get your finances in order and you will learn new things that can help you for retirement.
