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 any lady that holds appearances to some level of importance.

The format of the book is very very simple, and attractive. Starting with A, it gives at least 1-3 pages on each article, but doesn't seem lengthy at all. One may feel they know everything about how to buy blue jeans or new pumps, but this book will enlighten you nonetheless. 

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. 



You will not be given commandments on what you should and should not wear, and it doesn't limit certain clothing items to particular body shapes. 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!

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 …
