I literally have never seen a fashion book that bad. I like the style on Gossip Girl and I was really looking toward this book. I have pretty much everything else on subject - InStyle and Lucky books, Rachel Zoe, Victoria Beckham, books of Chanel, Carolina Herrera, The Pocket Stylist etc etc. Any one of them is vastly superior to this book. I am absolutely baffled that any agent would look at this book and think this will be a success.
If you have never read a single fashion magazine, then perhaps this book will be of interest. There are maximum 10 photos, rest are drawings. Text is so on the 5th grade level ie. 2 pages on there are 4 types of sweater: turtleneck, tunic, v-neck and crew neck. Stunning, isn't it? And comments that go along are: V-neck for victory! Sail your crewneck to the shore or smth stupid like that.
Not sure who is targeting either. On one section he shows how to cut up a t-shirt (which everyone has already done), then there's a picture of neon pink leggings next to a pencil skirt. I was bewildered. Any fashion book will have the content of this one but so much more. This guy is so lucky to have a job.

I'm so glad I didn't end up ordering this book, but looked through it (it took all of ten seconds) at the bookstore instead. I expected it to be full of pictures of cool clothes, fun gossip girl fashion and inspiration. This has none of that. The paper quality is even bad! There are barely any pictures, the fashion that IS there is awful and unwearable, and the "inspirations" are things we've already seen a million times (turtleneck, t-shirt, basic dress...)yawn. Maybe buy used, but even then, don't bother with this book unless you're in 6th grade.

I learned a thing or two about quick fixes and types of cotton. Its a nice quick read for beginners. its really a nice basic fashion book-- not a fashion encyclopedia but the author gives you his own twists.

I am a big fan of Gossip Girl, especially Blair's wardrobe. I was hoping that there would be style advice in this book on how to put such looks together, but instead it was full of sketches with obvious descriptions like, "This is a cowlneck." "This is a boatneck." "This is a crewneck." There was no advice on how to put things together, it was more like a directive so that you knew what each style of clothing was called, "These are capri pants," "These are flares..." Hello? Who doesn't know these things? The writing was basic, kindergarten level descriptions of clothing, that sometimes had really bad narratives to go along with it (things like, "Set sail in a boatneck," although this is not verbatim from the book, you get the idea... ) I'm glad I bought this used, now if I could only get rid of it. I would be embarrassed to give it to a friend, for they would be insulted that I didn't think that they knew the difference between long sleeves, short sleeves and 3/4 length sleeves. Ugh. Big disappointment!

When i bought this book i thought it was going to be brilliant, i was so excited about it because hes a great stylist on GG and i love the show for the fashion as well as the story lines.
I was disappointed with the book because i thought it was going to be more about the clothes on the show and how the characters are styled...it is probably my own fault for not reading more what the book was about.
It 's mainly about what clothes to suit anyone's body shape and how to pick signature pieces for yourself.
Pretty much standard stuff you'd get told in ones usual cosmo mag.

I received "You Know You Want It" as a gift and I ADORE IT! Fabulous book about all thing fashion!...it covers everything from what jeans to wear with what type of body, tips on organizing (and prioritizing your closet) and much, much more! Great illustrations...great models (with some FANTASTIC hair styles!!)...well put together. I love this book as a fun addition to my coffee table to flip through before a shopping spree! Great for a gift to any fashionista!!!
