What I liked about this book in they have real-life girls in their real-life bodies, curves and everything and show how clothing items looked on them, with a little mixing with the models. Some of the outfits just looked okay to me and the book seemed a little skimpy with the details. I liked how another book How Not to Look Fat had girdle recommendations. This book pretended that these models only had their underwear on underneath these clothes. Or maybe she just assumed that as smart women living in this time we would know that it's necessary. Anyway. The book pretty much seemed to throw most of their stuff out unless the clothes that were the after were actually from their closets although like I said there were a couple of models wearing the same top, etc.
