The most valuable chapter to me was Ch 3 which lists your body type and exactly what styles flatter your figure and more importantly which do not. I never realized that being petite I should avoid cropped pants and short jackets! There are so many quick and easy tips that I have applied to my wardrobe. I feel much more confident that I am shopping for flattering pieces and spending my money wisely. After all, I'm on a budget like most of us and I want to make the most of my purchases. I made a copy of the section in Ch 3 that is pertinent to my body type and keep it in my purse when shopping to keep me on track.
Marian's book is lighthearted, fun and easy to read. I read it in 2 days. It's jam packed with valuable information and things that we really need to hear, like the truth about shopping in the junior department and the clearance racks! There are some thought provoking things in her book and a few easy exercises to do.
I recommend this book to anyone who wants to stop wasting $ on clothes that are not flattering to you and to learn a few secrets on how to accent your beautiful features.
Problems I have with this book include first, there are absolutely no color photos at all! A serious omission in a style book which talks about color! There are a few rather unclear black and white snapshots inserted next to the text, and that's all. A real problem when you are trying to visualize what a color is like, or what a style would look like on a real person as opposed to a small black and white photo.
Second, the text is really basic and didn't tell me anything I didn't know. I hoped I would learn more about expressing my own style in the clothes I wear. I have worked through the Style Statement book, which is excellent, and have come up with my statement key words, but I wanted concrete help in choosing clothes that would express this look in everyday life. Well, guess what - zilch here! Just a short questionnaire, which again is very basic, and doesn't give any advice or hints at all in how to select clothing that will embody your chosen image words. What good is that?
And as far as Ms Rothschild's color theory goes, she's seriously off base here. She says it's only the color of your hair that counts! And this is nonsense. All your coloring counts - your eyes, your skin and your hair all seen together. You need to find your color type based on all these factors. The Sci-Art system admittedly uses only the skintone as a guide, but this is much more useful than using the hair color, as this book does. You can always change your hair color, and if you have, it isn't a guide at all as to your own basic coloring.Read more ›
