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.

Given a narrative voice, this how-to guide seems to speak personally to you and every woman. Many of our fashion icons such as marilyn monroe or coco chanel are given their due respect throughout the pages sprinkled with their famous quotations.

This book challenges the reader to find a way to mix and match so that they can develop their own personal style, wear what ever they would like and feel on top of the world while doing so.
With richly colored, detailed illustrations this will remain a fashion favorite for a long time!

Just like Nina's last book, this one is illustrated by Ruben Toledo -- which … more
