This book is a lot of fun and informative to read.  Nina Garcia provided not only fashion highlights and guidance however she was also funny in what she shared too which made me laugh out loud.  She shared about her experiences with style and fashion, she shared a bulleted list of rock star and movie icons.  She dedicated an entire chapter to from other fashion experts such as Vera Wang, Oscar De La Renta, John Galliano, and Caroline Herrera.  Nina Garcia provided fashion tips on how it is best to get your clothes altere so that they will fit better. 

There were some things that seemed impractical such as descriptions and personal anecdotes that aren’t fitting or are affordable for many women.  I felt she needed to share affordable wardrobe, and description looks for women as I think that with this tough economy not everyone can afford a Louie Vuitton purse.
