contained everything my mother taught me 16 Mar. 2013
By Laura K. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I guess I must have thought there was some secret in here about creating style but it's very basic information about what looks good on you if you have narrow shoulders vs. broad shoulders, thick waist vs. thin waist, etc. I can't imagine going through all the exercises in this book and getting any new information about which things look good on me and which things don't. Maybe I pay more attention to this or I was taught well growing up but really, how can a grown woman NOT know these things about her body. I read this in maybe an hour and was very disappointed. It's for women who really have no clue at all about dressing themselves. Watch "What Not to Wear" and you'll get much more from that than you will from this. Too bad because it's a good idea.

I'm glad it's not just me 30 Mar. 2014
By SusieQ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
When I first looked at this woman's pics on her blog, I questioned my own taste and style because, quite frankly, her outfits are either frumpy or just plain weird. I know a lot of stylish women who can thrift successfully but her choices just look dated and I'll-fitting.

As far as body image, rather than helping to create acceptance, I see a whole lot of made up body issues and silly wardrobe challenges that few women actually have.

This is probably the least helpful style guide I've ever read.

Majorly blah 20 Jan. 2015
By Sa0rah0rah - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Nothing new worth reading that I didn't already know. Nothing earth-shattering that I couldnt hear on The View, the Today Show or any Oprah-esque tv show. Save your money!

Do yourself a favor before buying this book 28 Mar. 2014
By Rose35 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Go to her website, alreadypretty.com, and search her "dressed for" posts. Scroll through and ask yourself, do I want this person dressing me? I certainly wish I had done the same.

Almost pretty 1 April 2014
By C. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I only read the sample on my Kindle, but couldn't delete if off my reader fast enough! The writer's blog is nothing but questionable outfits (like she seems to have a thing for 90s cast-offs) and wordy armchair psychobabble. On her blog she comes off as smug and overly critical. There are books that do a much better job of giving advice on personal style.
