1.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointed, 14 Nov 2006
This review is from: That Extra Half an Inch: Hair, Heels and Everything in Between (Hardcover)
Read this book in a few short hours, not much of a read but OK I suppose. I like her alot but her lifestyle is what shapes her advice and it all seems a bit too front row with Katie Holmes for me, all a bit boring. Took advice of other reviewer here last week and picked up two other style bibles so that I wouldn't misjudge her, How to Walk in High Heels and The Goddess Guide-both great value on amazon and both are full of much better tips and sound advice. How to Walk in High Heels is a good all rounder (I keep it near the TV and flick when I'm bored). The Goddess Guide I keep in my handbag and take it shopping with me for all of the really hip addresses, phone numbers and fashion and beauty tips. I especially like the fashion experts' secret addresses in The Goddess Guide -the ones in London are very special and I've found so many new shops that sell really eclectic one off pieces that had all of my friends guessing where I got my top (can't wait to try the shops in New York and Paris someday). To be honest I did give Victoria's book a fair chance but it's not anywhere as good as these other two. From reading them I've grasped that the writers spend their whole lives immersed in travelling to critique fashion - you can really tell. Victoria's book misses the mark here because it's just not as believable or savvy. And anyway how can she go shopping on the highstreet for jeans in Topshop without being spotted by the paparazzi? Have you seen the size of the windows on Topshop in Oxford Street?
