I am an attractive woman but have an awful time trying to put together a wardrobe that I'm happy with! Looking for guidance, I checked out this book as well as the Lucky Style Manual. The Lucky book I looked at firsthand at Border's and found it to be very cleanly laid out, useful, informative and inspiring - especially the part about the closet purge and four simple questions to ask about those items you're holding on to. Profiles in the book are about designers (some pretty eclectic) with some interesting tips and styles, highly individualized. I checked out In Style's book from the library, and am glad I didn't spend the money. Maybe because I'm not a celebrity freak and don't really read in style magazine, I was intimidated by their use of celebrities wearing multi thousand dollar fashions (some of which I didn't even care for) to illustrate their fashion guidelines. I found that the book tended to repeat the obvious and erred on the side of being boring. I didn't find the inspiration or practical help I was looking for. The Lucky manual is a keeper; one that I came back to purchase on Amazon, and it's a useful reference book and indeed helping me put things together.
