Format: Paperback
This book covers it all - plain and simple. If you want to have a good grasp of the realities of wardrobe development and maintenance, there is not a single salient topic that is not given its due.
From the planning, to the purchase, to the wearing and finally the cleaning and/or storing of your wardrobe - you are given a healthy dose of do's and don'ts that wil save you time, money and heartache.
The book is laid out so that it can be just as easily read in bits and pieces, or cover to cover.
I especially liked the section which explained the concept and benefits of a personal shopper. I had always thought that this service was only available to the VIP who spent mega-bucks. Not so.
Required reading for anyone who has a substantial investment in their wardrobe ... or who wants to protect their more modest investment.

This book is an absolute must for everyone. In today's economy we have to make smart purchases. Steve Boorstein covers how to care for your wardrobe and how to make it last. What a great book. I especially love the section on first aid for stain emergencies, with little ones running around it is almost impossible not to get something on my favorite blouse!

This book has really changed the way I think about clothing. I typically waste a lot of time and money shopping for clothing, but The Ultimate Guide to Shopping and Caring for Clothing has really helped me find ways to preserve the clothes I have and has taught me a few tricks about making wise purchases.

I purchased The Ultimate Guide to Shopping and Caring for Clothing mainly because it includes a section dedicated to bridal gowns. I have to say that before reading this section, the long-term care of my bridal gown was the furthest thing from my mind. I'm really glad that I picked up this book because it helped me choose the right gown that I will be able to enjoy for years to come. When the big day comes, I will heed to Steve Boorstein's advise on the cleaning and preservation of my newly-purchased heirloom.
