What we all hope the fashion magazines would do

This book covers everything from what is in your purse to the bottom of your shoes. Its 365 calendar day style makes it ideal to impart a lot of information efficiently; at first, you may focus more on the beautiful graphic pages that help you put together twelve fool-proof outfits (one per month). The second time through the book you may focus more on the general style improvements--adding a Pucci print; how to incorporate animal and Ethnic prints into a wardrobe without looking costumey. Finally I went through the book as it was intended, one page per day, and chewed over the food for thought Lloyd Boston gives: investing in an elegant pen that can reinforce a good impression; taking care of clothing and shoes properly; when to shop for coats and swimsuits. The author provides something very few fashion books do: specific outfit construction ideas that are generic enough to fit anyone's wardrobe. His multitude of combinations helps you rearrange what you already have into something stylish and classic, making it easy to incorporate new and trendy pieces in with your elegant staples. It does what we all hope those fashion magazines will do for us every month.Practical and useful, it will expand your wardrobe without you buying a thing.

Best of its Kind

I've read many other style books lately, but this one has been my favorite. Lloyd's tips are so original and smart...he goes farther than any book I've ever read. There was so much new and original advice that I would have never thought to try! The book has 365 style tips, one for each day of the year. I checked this book out from the library, however, and read the whole thing in about a week! I will most likely be buying this book, because, even if you did like I did and read the whole thing in a week...you can't remember EVERY tip. It's going to be something you're going to want to keep on your shelf and turn back to time and time again when you're style needs a lift, or when a certain outfit needs a boost. Another thing I liked is how it's not ALL about the clothes. The book is about how to make a complete head to toe ensemble. It describes shoes, scarves, hats, coats, jewelry, and how to wear all of those things to a lady's best advantage. Also, scattered in the book, are hair and make-up tips that were useful. Lloyd also talks about how to not just look great, but FEEL great. It's amazing. Any woman can pick up this book and find many, many things to help improve her look and her life. I guarantee it.

Lloyd, I liked it

This may not be a guerrilla manual, 10-steps-or-less, 10-seconds-or-less book but it is a purposeful, satisifying book on getting dressed each day. The conversational flavor is as a stylist imparting wisdom to a client/friend. Each day's subject is a pick-me-up, a thoughful bit of fashion to chew on when you dress that day; and fashion being the encompassing subject it is, perhaps it is best handled in a meditative, chipper fashion is it is through-out this book. Very helpful is that it is organized by month: reading about capri pants in January is irrelevant, however you can go straight to October - or June - as necessary. I learned a lot from this book and I thought I knew a lot. You can always learn more. The spotlight reviewer that 'yawns' over the book makes me wonder as to how she views fashion - as a crash'n'burn way to get thru the day - or, as Lloyd presents it, a clever, fun subject we all need to give thought to to stay on top of with a smile. Great job, Lloyd. I appreciate your effort, and treasure my copy. And have recommened it.

I refer to It All the Time

Of all the style books I have purchased (which would be about a dozen--I try hard), this is by far my favorite and the one I turn to the most. Lloyd Boston gives direct, helpful, daily advice to anyone and everyone who is willing to learn. I have had so many compliments on my wardrobe--almost daily compliments--since I have tried to put into practice his suggestions. It is not hard to do, you do not have to figure out what style you are, what colors are best, what season, etc.(Although if you want to do that, Trinny and Susannah's newest book is handy for that.) It also does not have to be that expensive. You may have a lot of what he suggests already. It is his mixing and matching that makes the outfit. Reading the book is like having a stylist in my bookcase, waiting to help inspire me. It is friendly, readable and not condescending in its approach. Although not every day's suggestion is useful to me, overall the book is more than I expected. I highly recommend it.

Thanks, Lloyd!!

Once again, Lloyd Boston has written a book that is not only beautiful to look at, but filled with creative and insightful information. Reading it was as much fun as watching him on television! I especially liked the "affirmations" which connected great style, with great self-confidence! These are the kinds of messages that adult women, and young girls, should be exposed to as often and early as possible. Thanks, Lloyd!!
