A psychological aproach to clothes,
This review is from: I Don't Have a Thing to Wear: The Psychology of Your Closet (Paperback)I would recomend this book to those women that have already bought or read other similar books like Leah Feldon's Does this make me look fat?. Brenda's Wardrobe Companion ; by Brenda Kinsel; The Fine Art of Dressing by Margaux Tartarotti or Looking Good by Nancy Nix-Rice. Women who already know what do they need, what suits them but still they cant put thogether a usefull wardrobe. This book can be a good help to them.
The real interest of the book lies in the psychological approach. The autors work with the idea that clothes are emotional stuff hence why you can buy clothes for a fabulous event when you lack a social life, or cheap clothes even if you can afford more expensive ones or "need" to go shopping even when youre broke, why you always seem to end buying things you dont like or need.
Some of the stuff is a bit un-original like parts on how to plan a wardrobe depending on how you spend yout time, how to find your fashion persona, if your clasic, natural.... some basic data on line, proportions (nothing to compare to Leah Feldon's Does this make me look fat?).
