100 must-haves for every womans closet.

I got a chance to read this book before it hit shelves and I loved it. I was a huge fan of Nina's last book, The Little Black Book of Style, so I had a feeling that I would love this one too.

This book outlines the 100 items that every woman should have in her closet. Yep, 100 because lets face it all of those other sources claiming you only need 5 things is total crap.

Just like Nina's last book, this one is illustrated by Ruben Toledo -- which makes the book that much more enjoyable to read.

What are the 100? Well, I don't want to give them all away but here are some that you might find surprising (especially from Nina):

- Converse
- Push-up bra
- Zippered hoodie
- Old concert tee shirt
- Red lipstick
- Peacoat (from an army surplus store is best)

There are also the usual suspects like:

- Little Black Dress
- Pearls
- Diamond studs
- Animal print

This book is great and I highly recommend it. This would also make a great inexpensive gift for fashion lovers.

I love chucks too and it's oddly encouraging to see that I actually own everything on your truncated list except the Little Black Dress (not quite as shocking a statement if you knew me). My wardrobe is also intentionally devoid of all animal print. Other than that who knew being a stylish woman was so within reach? Great review!

I was so excited when I first opened this beautifully bound book. It appeared to be the bible of fashion and dressing one's self, and after reading, I'd definitely confirm it as so. In alphabetical order, this manual explained every piece of clothing or accessory and gave you many options on how to wear it, in turn giving you room for creativity.

   This book is great for your granddaughter, your grandma, your mom, sister, cousin, niece, etc. It's definitely a must-have for …
