Since this book was promoted by Nicole Richie, I thought she had great style, so why not check it out? When the book arrived, I was disappointed on how little content there was, how few pictures it had and overall the advice it gave about fashion. I appreciated the "From Runway" to "Real life" section, but it's not anything new. Maybe my expectations were higher or different. I was looking for photos of celebrities and different styles they had, which I could incorporate in my own wardrobe, but I didn't get that from this book.
Bottom line is that if you want to be influenced by fashion check out other books or read their site. If you don't buy it, you won't be missing much.
Also, what's the purpose of the red ribbon glued in the book? At first I thought it was a bookmark but after ripping it out, it tore up the book, so I stopped.
Second, I am a huge fan of the WWW blog; I've been a subscriber for over 2 years. When the blog first came out is was great. Lately things have become a little boring, and this book echos the more boring blogs of late rather than the interesting and fashion-forward blogs from when they started. The runway to real way is a common feature in many fashion magazines; many of them do this monthly so to purchase a book version of a trend that changes so rapidly is kind of useless.
The model looks messy and the looks are geared toward a young audience, which is possibly what they were going for (I'm 26 and felt the looks in the book were not easily translated to my job or even my social life). With the wealth of GREAT fashion blogs out here, this book is a waste and offers nothing new or insightful that can't be found on their blog or someone else's.
I do think they good have chosen a more representative model-somebody who looks more like the "average" reader- but the pictures were thoughtfully chosen and the book contains many creative ideas.
No book is going to dress you. At best it will give you good tips. If it's written in a style that's easy to understand and by somebody who "gets" fashion it can be a useful tool.
PS- I'm over 29 :)

I did, and this book really helped. It shows lots of body types, fashion preferences, and how to balance and accessorize an outfit.Published on April 21, 2013 by amby
The book is heavy on the words and too light on the pictures. Kind of a yawn! And the model who poses for their archetypical outfits is very uninspired--she doesn't work it at all,... Read morePublished on March 17, 2010 by G. Angell
