Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fashionista is a girl who always looks current and cutting edge, even when her clothes are vintage 1975. A fashionista can tell her Pucci from her Gucci and her Blahniks from her Choos, but shes as comfortable in Kmart as she is in Chanel. She wears what she likes and always looks fantastic. Shes a clothing chameleon: a sharp tweed suit and ladylike driving gloves one moment, a punk rock T-shirt and studded belt the next. Shes a gypsy, a princess, and a diva. Shes fashion-forward, shopping-addicted, and full of fun. And you can be her, no matter your size, style, or budget.

Authors Melissa de la Cruz and Karen Robinovitz are fashionistas who share a love for impractical shoes, small dogs that fit in designer handbags, and wearing white after Labor Day. They eat, sleep, and breathe fashion. And theyll teach you how to

• Make a whole new wardrobe out of the awful duds that lurk in the back of your closet

• Use the words “postmodern” and “ironic” to fake your way through pseudo-intellectual cocktail conversation (really-its easy, and so postmodern and ironic!)

• Score big with chic and cheap finds at thrift stores, consignment shops, and discount designer outlets

• Live like a socialite on a shoestring budget

In two weeks or less, youll be living the lush life, from the brim of your Eugenia Kim fedora to the tip of your pointy Christian Louboutin pumps!

Review:

"Cruz and Robinovitz, the effusive authors of How To Become Famous in Two Weeks or Less, now offer a combination of a self-help guide for 20-something, Cosmo-guzzling women and an ode to their own oh-so-fabulous lives. According to the authors, the road to divahood can be arduous, but following their advice will help guide the way (or at least ensure that readers are wearing the right clothes while they make their attempt). The book has chapters on building a 'fashionista closet,' becoming a smart shopper and using make-up wisely, and brings readers up to speed on chic cocktail conversation (for example, any fashionista worth her salt knows how to talk the talk when it comes to A-list destinations, Pedro Almodóvar's oeuvre and the lessons of kabbalah). For readers who don't have the patience to sit through a chick-lit novel but want to read something besides Page Six and Harper's Bazaar, this completely frivolous handbook may be just the thing."
