Editorial Reviews

Review

From Publishers Weekly
"In this satisfying and unusual style guide...Whitehurst examines the metaphysics of fashion and its potential as a personal art project...Though Whitehurst instructs readers to "stand like a celebrity" and "walk like a supermodel," it's obvious that readers are meant to think of themselves on the same playing field, not as inferior beings...sure to be welcomed by the open-minded fashion lover." (c) Reed Business Information.

A great way to find yourself and let the world know who you are. Confidence and poise. Shy and dreamy. Find why you are drawn to the same thing and learn to love it or discover what you really should be wearing! Tess has a great voice, guiding the reader to discover what your soul wears, not what is "in". I recommended it to my book club!

I love this book! It's creative, thoughtful, innovative and grounding. It's not about striving for perfection, spending a lot of money or having to focus on consumerism and shopping. It is about finding and connecting with your inner fashion muse.

Dressing for the life you want is an intriguing idea to me, because it opens up myriad possibilities for the reader. How lovely to treat fashion as a creative expression that isn't just oriented toward pleasing a man or for career success. Rather, this book helps women further explore what they already know about themselves and discover other aspects. I'm finding that this book can assist the poets and the dreamers, the artists, the New Agers, the gardeners, retro hipsters, witches, adventurers, creatives, businesswomen and SAHMs tether themselves to various looks in a manner that is authentic self-expression that is fun, imaginative and grounding!

Tess Whitehurst is an excellent writer on design elements, style, and magic. There are very few writers who specialize in this combination, and so I was eagerly anticipating the release of this book. I enjoyed it immensely. It contains real life fashion for real women, because beauty belongs to all women, not those of a given age, income, or body type. There is only one thing that I want to say that is not a criticism, merely an observation. I deliberately bought the printed book because most magic and design books have a lot of illustrations, which are easier to follow in a printed format. This one doesn't have illustrations or pictures, making it very appropriate for purchase in an kindle format. I love the convenience and space saving capabilities of my kindle and use it whenever possible.

I admit it. I'm glamorously challenged. After having children, my fashion and style had taken a serious downturn. This book helped me get back on track with lots of cool ideas and inspiration to help anyone look their best, inside and out.

This book was on my wish list for months and when I finally ordered it I was so excited. The day it arrived I couldn't wait to start reading. What a huge disappointment. The book was too scattered, she didn’t stay on one subject long enough and while the book was supposed to be about fashion she went off on tangents so far that you forgot what you were reading about. It was more about astrology (which I love normally) and other things than it was about fashion. She had a great idea to start and quickly lost the thread. Honestly I wanted to give this one star, but I felt too bad to do that. A huge waste of my money and time and I regret buying it.
Also when the book came the cover wasn't right. It was off center and what was supposed to be the spine was in the middle of the front of the book. I didn't know this was a self-published book, they must only print on demand.

I've always loved fashion but this book makes it magical and fun! I had actually, due to money problems, found myself losing some interest in fashion until I read this book. It inspired me to rethink my wardrobe in a way that upgraded me, as feeling good about yourself equals success and prosperity. My favorite aspect was our astrological signs have influence over our wardrobes and even the colors we're attracted to.

I learned, you can also choose your outfits by the days of the week and whatever planet is aligned for that day, which I use religiously. I chose a fashion angel, or in my case a fashion fairy, which was a fun exercise. Reading this book quickly prompted me to go through my wardrobe, getting rid of clothes that no longer served me. By doing so, I made space for the new. Within a week, as if by magic, some new clothes showed up in my life.

This book has a lot of fun activities that you can do to play with fashion. I really enjoyed reading it and will definitely be reading it again soon. It really opened up my mind about a lot of things and I learned so much about my style! Applying the knowledge has been fun and high-spirited. A great read for every woman or young girl, in my humble opinion!

This little gem talks not just about how to be a snappy dresser, but how the choices you make about your clothes and your outward appearance can both reflect and change who you are and who you aspire to be. It goes beyond "dress for success" to invite you to explore what you really want yourself, and your life, to look like. A unique take on the subject.

This is such a fun and uplifting book. I remember when I was younger I was quite the fashionista. But the years have gone by and I got into the "mom fashion slump." This book really got me thinking more about my wardrobe and how dressing better and taking more time dressing was in no way vain. It contains great advice on a variety of fashion topics, and is truly a joy to read.
