Closet Confidential: Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way

by

Closet Confidential: Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way Cover

 

Staff Pick

Not your run-of-the-mill fashion book. Closet Confidential has a winning combination of fun (and funny) hints that will help you pull your wardrobe, and possibly your life, together. The author is not at all preachy in her advice, and she can be laugh-out-loud funny. I have every confidence that there is something in this book for everyone, be they schlub or fashionista.

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

With the economy in a nosedive, more women than ever are looking for ways to achieve haute couture without the hefty price tag. 50 Style Lessons Learned the Hard Way shows how. Author Winona Dimeo-Ediger mixes self-deprecating wit, fashion smarts, and bargain-bin savvy to help women become divas on a dime. She divides the book into 12 handy chapters covering everything from shopping for jeans (while retaining one-third of one's self-esteem and half of one's paycheck) to hiding love handles to the ever-elusive "looking good while jogging." 50 Style Lessons also contains hilarious and useful charts, graphs, and math equations, including Maslow's Hierarchy of Jeans, the handy Clip-out Guide to Wine and Hosiery, and the little-known Law of Calculus (the likelihood of a man noticing your outfit is inversely related to how much you want a man to notice your outfit).
