I just want to say that this is a fabulous little book, it covers everything from coffee machines, cufflinks and bed linen to the perfect suit-all red lipstick and pashmina. Many of the items are pricey because of their quality or timelessness, but many of them are, in fact, affordable and chosen because they're the best on the market not because of their branding. I was amazed by many of the brands which I've never heard of but which produce the high quality goods (like Pia Wallen slippers or Savon de Marseille soap which is cheap and heavenly). Although as I student I cannot afford many of the things mentioned, I still find this book really inspiring and helpful, especially the Health & Beauty section and Home section. I have bought some of the things recommended and I have to say, these were some of my best purchases. So don't get fooled into thinking this is a pompous and unsubstantiated publication for the rich as it isn't.

...they obviously care little for fashion or style. Absolutely no need to trash the book just because you are not interested in its content. Why did they buy it then, I must ask?!

This book is not meant to be taken seriously! And FYI, the jokey "THIS BOOK HAS SAVED MY LIFE!" reviews are wearing a tiny bit thin now. Would love to see another proper review of this book rather than a mockery of it. If you love fashion, then you'll love this book, simple as that! And not everyone that enjoys fashion is under any great illusions that it will change/better your life :)

A great coffee table book. Sadly it is now out of print and has not been updated but it is a great way to pass an hour thinking about your forthcoming lottery win.

Format: Paperback
World-renowned fashion/lifestyle gurus Maggie Davis and Charlotte Williamson have a lot to answer for. Well, to my local Age Concern shop they do. Before clapping eyes on the intrepid duo, my clothing consisted predominantly of second-hand, ill-fitting shirts; slippers that you would feel ashamed to give to a tramp, and trousers that would best fit a small child - in a nutshell: I was a walking disaster. Maggie and Charlotte changed this. I have not looked back since.

Now, with the arrival of this latest lifestyle bible my life has taken another change for the better. Gone are the days of forbidding my family and friends from entering my home, afraid of them witnessing the decrepit furniture and cheap accessories that adorned the place. After reading this book, I went into my closet under the stairs, grabbed a hammer and began ritualistically smashing my house to pieces. It felt so good... so liberating. I replaced the junk with many of the items mentioned in this book (I won't spoil your experience by mentioning them here) and my life has taken yet another turn for the better. I now hold dinner parties every night and am currently involved with several women, such is my ascent into higher society. I am the envy of everybody I know and, indeed, people that merely pass me in the street. They look on in despair - at their failure to even come close to possessing a fraction of the style and charisma that I now exude. Well, now everybody can achieve what I have achieved - even you! I urge you to buy this book and allow Maggie and Charlotte's personalities to dissolve into your soul. Take heed of their advice. Most of all: don't look back, and let the good times well and truly roll! I know I did!
