Our granddaughter loved it!
Laurel Jones
Andrea Linett's voice is funny, smart, genuine, friendly and very relatable--she's a really great storyteller.

Nothing concrete about style or fashion - just a lot of silly rambling.

I can't get enough of this charming little jewel, and luckily I found the IWANTTOBEHER.COM website so I can get more, more, more from Andrea Linnet (in the wake of her leaving Lucky magazine along with Kim France, which has since gone downhill :-(...)

This "fashion memoir" makes you THINK and opens your "editorial eye" to the street style around you...although I am 51, I can vividly recall those who influenced me through childhood, college, and later years, all the way back to watching my mother style her hair into a "Jackie" bouffant with Alberto V05 hairspray that she packed into her Samsonite train case for weekend trips...It will make you remember those you admired and envied and you'll probably pull out your yearbooks for a look back at your local style goddesses and icons, along with the hair, clothing, and makeup trends! Like smelling a perfume you used to wear, this little gem will give you a wonderful "deja vu".

Besides enjoying Andrea's vignettes, you'll look at acquaintences and strangers in a new way...what do you see that you like? You'll learn to assimilate what you like in others and mix it up into your own style...you are what you read, you are what you eat, you are what you see!

Much more inspiring that a book full of celebrities with endless bank accounts, you'll want to go through your closet with a whole new attitude...it makes you appreciate all the ladies who've made you "YOU" along the way...and look forward to all the ladies who'll cross your path in the days ahead!!!

I just finished reading this book and was so sad, because I wanted it to keep going and going! Equal parts funny, insightful, tender, and smart, Andrea Linett created a mesmerizing mini-story around each featured woman. Plus, her own fashion (and life) history was fascinating. Having grown up around the same time she did, it was a really lovely (and sometimes emotional!) trip down memory lane. And I think for folks who were born later, the book would provide a lot of insight. It's also really nicely written. I've been recommending it to all my friends!

This is an endearing and insightful peek inside the mind of a respected veteran of the fashion cognoscenti. Linett has a keen eye and a sharp wit. She has the ability to spin the tiniest thread of an observation into a golden yarn.

Andrea Linett's book gave me a giggle. I devoured it in two straight evenings, bought another copy for my best friend for Christmas, and have now placed I Want to Be Her! on our guest room night table for our next female overnight guest to enjoy. Especially liked Linett's homage to her mother. A charming book, with some solid fashion tips.[...]

I loved this book so much that I forced myself to save chapters for the next day so I'd have something to look forward to. Andrea Linett's voice is funny, smart, genuine, friendly and very relatable--she's a really great storyteller. The evocative illustrations are so inspiring, and there's a clever-yet -simple fashion tip next to each one. So fun! It's the kind of book you immediately want to share--it's my new go-to gift for friends' birthdays. I can't wait for the next one!

I read this entire the book the day I received it. Actually, I canceled the plans I had because I could not put it down. I laughed until I had tears streaming down my face ("it's a hat, take it off"). I am going to read it again...actually that sounds like a fun plan for tonight now that I'm thinking about it. Who doesn't need a good gut-busting laugh? Andrea Linett is so smart, so funny, and so full of knowledge and details, details, details...and I want to know them all. And I want to be her, of course! As everyone does! Get it now!

I really enjoyed this book, which is part memoir, part fashion bible. I felt like the author was a personal friend, so much so, that I wanted to ask: "How come Nasstassia Kinski in Tess wasn't one of your inspirations? (She was mine)" In any case a very fun read.

As a fan of Lucky when it still had Kim and Andrea at the helm (no offense, Brandon, but it's just not the same), I was expecting Andrea's book to be a tad more "how-to," perhaps?
And then make it your own?

It's not bad, but wasn't what I had in mind.
