I've always been a fan of classic & vintage inspired clothes and jewelry & when you add in the wonderful acting & writing on the show, what more could you want!
As a curvy girl, Joan is my hero & watching her has given me more confidence when I dress.
Janie's book is full of good info above & beyond the normal fashion books. My favorite piece of advice in the book is to stand up straight, shoulders back & "be an exclamation point, not a comma". That's the best fashion advice of all time- If I find myself slumping, those words straighten me up & I instantly feel better.
I am giving it 4 stars because of the amazing illustrations. Without those, it would have gotten a 3. A book of just illustrations by Robert Best, now that would be 5 stars for sure.
Wonderful illustrations and photos, great writing. A terrific read for fashion buffs. A must read for Mad Men buffs.
There are some really good tips, though. The section on men's dressing was very informative and useful.
Get it if you want a book about what Ms. Bryant's fashion knowledge and perspective, but not if you're looking for more insight into the Mad Men series designs.
