There are actually simple rules you can learn to make yourself turn out looking great too--camouflaging your trouble spots and looking great overall! Stacy and Clinton don't just come up with their rules out of thin air--they use the rules as described in this book regarding body shape (not body SIZE--that's irrelevant), color, and fashion personality.
For Pete's sake, you're not doomed to come out of the process looking drab if you don't want to look drab! The author shows you how to use your body shape and coloring (hair and skin) as a basis for choosing clothing that fits YOUR personality. Put all together, you come out looking great and FEELING MORE LIKE YOURSELF (hence the title of the book).
You're not left with just words to try to figure all this out. The book is filled with illustrations to SHOW you what the author is talking about. For example, on pages 127 and 128, there are four illustrations that show how given the same body shape and coloring, you can dress to exude any of the four fashion personalities: "relaxed," "classic," "romantic," or "expressive."
AND you don't have to figure out ANY of this (body shape, coloring, fashion personality) on your own! The book contains questionnaires that will, when completed, tell you what you are.
AND the author tells you how to get all this on ANY budget!
At the end of the process, your closet will contain only things you'll love to wear and you'll wear everything in your closet. I purged my closet within hours of reading that part of the book and now I love to look at my closet filled only with things that fit me and that look good on me. I didn't even buy anything new, so it cost me $0. But when it's time to buy something new, I know exactly what I'm looking for.
I can now walk into a store and in an instant pick through which styles and colors work for me and which ones to pass over. Dressing to my body type and personal style allows me to spend less time and money on clothing and have a more interesting, fun, yet professional wardrobe. Best yet it is a wardrobe that is tailored to me and people notice.
Thanks Mary for taking women seriously and providing us with a tool that allows us to be taken more serious.
