Closet Confidential: Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way
by Winona Dimeo- Ediger; published November 2009
(available wherever fine books are sold.)
A few weeks ago, a fun book by fellow blogger, Winona Dimeo-Ediger, author of the highly acclaimed, Daddy Likey blog arrived for review and I couldn't wait to sink my teeth into it. As a recovering shop-a-holic with an addiction to fashion and style; this piece of literature has quickly become my new bible. Closet Confidential: Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way is not only informational, but hilarious as well! Ediger covers every wardrobe situation you can think of from purchasing the perfect undergarments to helping you make the most of your wardrobe without going into debt.
I especially love her witty style lessons!
Style Lesson #17– For many women, limping around in uncomfortable shoes is akin to childbirth: in the midst of it, you're in extraordinary pain, cursing under your breath and vowing that you will never go through this again. But as soon as you get home, you forget about all the agony and the blood; you see those cute little shoes sitting there looking so harmless and helpless and suddenly you're putting them on and and going through the same thing all over again.
Style lesson #43– The only rules for a modern-day Wedding guest are to keep your cleavage covered and not show up in a floor-length white lace dress, so it's up to you to find the motivation to bring your fashion A-game.
Here's what you'll find in the book-
– 50 Style secrets learned the hard way
– Maslow's Hierarchy to Jeans
– The mysterious phenomenon of the oversized clutch
– An A-to-Z guide to all things shoe
– Einstein's Theory of Handbag Relativity
– The T-shirt Test: Ironic or Just Lame?
