Customer Review

Carrie is a fashionista with sense. She could have called this book Style for Impoverished Dummies because she covers the basics step by step. Some of her instructions are tried and true, like cleaning out your closet first and separating stuff into bags. She has Trash, Charity, Tailor, Duffle, Friends and Save. The bag of things needing mending goes right to the tailor the next week or else it goes to Charity. And I'd never thought of having a clothing swap with my Friends bag (too good to discard but not worn by me!) The item must match something else in the closet, be in good condition and fit to remain in the closet. She's tough!
She is thorough on the method of organizing, starting with the bottom drawer. She advises keeping 10 pairs of good socks rather than 30 subpar pairs and wants the hangers turned the same direction for a good reason which has to do with her ongoing purging system.
Chapter 2 gives the rules of wardrobe essentials after asking if you have a closet stuffed with clothes but nothing to wear. Guilty!
She actually lists the pieces of those essentials, along with what to look for when shopping for them, and how much you should consider spending.
The chapter on how to buy a bra could be its own ebook. As could the chapter on the items you need to keep in your purse. As could the chapter on the details she gives on style in your 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's.
This ebook is a great value for the money and written clearly and with a touch of humor.
