What Not to Wear is one of my "Guilty Pleasures",
This review is from: The Truth About Style (Hardcover)
I don't get to watch it often enough, but Stacy London is one of the best parts with her great sense of humor and obvious empathy.
Reading her weighty hardcover book- The Truth About Style- is still a pleasure, but hardly a guilty one.
Mind you, at the start, when Stacy shares her sometimes rather painful early life, it's hardly fun, but it is fascinating reading, none-the-less. I really feel like I know her now.
She then takes eight real-life women and gives them a fashion "start-over' which does more than enhance their looks and style, it helps them regain their self-confidence.
Now sure, I personally have the style sense of SpongeBob SquarePants, but I know a good read when I read it. Fashion tips and life tips, all combined with a personal story and her fun personality. Fantastic!
