HASH(0x9a0742c4) out of 5 stars contained everything my mother taught me 16 Mar. 2013
By Laura K. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9a078f60) out of 5 stars Majorly blah 20 Jan. 2015
By Sa0rah0rah - Published on Amazon.com
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!

HASH(0x9a07a150) out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor before buying this book 28 Mar. 2014
By Rose35 - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9a078e70) out of 5 stars Stale, Nothing New to See Here! 21 Jan. 2015
By phoebe75 - Published on Amazon.com
The information offered can be found for free online! She does not give any new perspective on dressing at all! Luckily, I borrowed this book instead of buying it- so I am not out any $$. There are many other books on the market that offer new ideas and tips- so save your money!

HASH(0x9a07b1f8) out of 5 stars Lots of better style guides out there 23 Jan. 2015
By Tara - Published on Amazon.com
I borrowed this book from my local library but I'm incredibly glad I never paid any money for it. The author seems obsessed with legs far apart, hands on hips poses and clothing from the 1990s. Every styling choice is obsessed over to the minutiae to the point that even though I have no neuroses about my body shape, I am left feeling perhaps I should feel more insecure! There are lots of other, better known styling guides that are worth paying for.
