"After a decade working behind the scenes among stylists, designers and other industry pros, fashion reporter Redstone 'finally learned step by step how to navigate all the fashion faux pas.' In this chatty reference, Redstone bestows her insider's knowledge in a handy month-by-month guide to shopping, outfit coordinating and self-styling. Highlights include a useful list of fashion retailers' merchandising schedules to aid in shopping, tips for developing your own 'iconic' look, and a lively discussion on fashion etiquette with a gaggle of designers including Nicole Miller, Marc Bouwer and Betsey Johnson. More thorough illustrations would have greatly increased the utility of, say, a primer on sunglass buying by face-shape; still, Redstone's lighthearted, down-to-earth advice, if occasionally frivolous (there's more about swimsuit shopping than swimsuits), makes this a lively fashion go-to."
