Amazing Info But Heartbreaking at the Same TIme

We all want to be judged on our skills. Skills we earned through hard work that we can measure, calculate and control. We've been told from an early age to "not judge a book by its cover". Sadly that is not the case in our picture, media-driven world of today. No matter how great or significant our message--if we don't package correctly it will not be heard. With that thought in mind, (and probably grinding our teeth at the unfairness of it), I cannot more highly recommend this book. Just get over how men can roll out looking like they are coming in from a three day drunk, but let a woman forget her lipstick...horrors! This book is well organized and I did use the lists of clothes to get rid of in the book and sent the old clothes to a consignment store. I am building my collection of shape and compression wear. My skills will prevail and be included in a trim, youthful package to obtain maximum effect. A great book for any women in the working world or just wondering should she jump into it at all.

I Love self help books and this was one of my favorites

I usually buy clothes because of color or because they look stylish. The fact that I look fat in them probably crosses my mind but I'll just ask a friend "do I look fat in this" and they say no and I go about my business. Then my husband reminded me "women always lie to other women". You know he's right. I lie to my friends about their clothes because I hate to hurt their feelings. Anyway, after reading this book I went on a clean out spree in my closet and now I don't ask my friend's opinions. I just ask Charla. I reference her book constantly and I have been feeling more confident in my clothes choices. I have even lent this book to friends but so far they have not been motivated to change their wardrobes. But I did and now for a 55 year old women I look stylish and slimmer. I wish I had this book 20 years ago!!!

Like Finding A New Best Friend!

mythoughts If you have ever looked in the mirror and thought you looked fat...then you need to pick up this book. It doesn't matter if you 4'11" or 6 ft tall...sometimes you just "feel" fat and other times you really could lose a few pounds. While I am definitely in the latter group and could shed a few pounds (ok, ok, maybe more then a few)...I know this is a book that will help women of all ages and sizes. I was very curious on what tips and advise Charla would offer to her readers. I feel that I am rather fashionable and fairly aware of what looks good on my body so I was delighted to read her fantastic, fresh and innovative tips and ideas. I was more delighted tosense her wonderful humor and gentle sarcasm. The book reads as if a dear friend was telling me little tidbits about my style. I don't know about you but I have only a handful of friends that I will trust to tell me the absolute truth on how I look. Now, I can add Charla to the mix. Charla covers everything in this book. Nothing is left out. Whether you struggle with a Big Bust (chapter 5) or a Buddha Belly (chapter 7) like I do or have your own issues with Heavy Calves (chapter 10) or Wide Hips + Thighs (chapter 8) are going to find wisdom within these pages that will help you think twice about what you buy and what you wear. Each chapter starts with a chapter title (i.e. Big Bust) then she proceeds with the "You know you have it when" section which describes what "the problem" is and how you know you have it. For example Chapter 5 - Big Bust states you know you have this "issue" if "You wear an empire top and everyoneassumes you're pregnant " or "You look down and can't see your feet" or "You can keep a cell phone in your cleavage". Chapter 5 is my favorite chapter as I am an E bra size...sorry didn't mean for you to choke on your drink...and I can totally relate to every one of those statements plus the statements on a few other chapters as well! The book is balanced by different sections within each chapter. For example: High-Fat vs. No-Fat, Swap-Outs, 10 things that will make you look fat, Brilliant Buys, Vows, etc. Each section helps to pinpoint your exact problem and provides solutions, tips and tricks to alleviate the situation. This is definitely a book that you will refer to over and over, time and time again. While it was great to read it all in one is definitely a reference book as we are ever constantly changing. I am not sure when the last time I laughed out loud at a book...but there was so much "uh-huh" going on with each chapter that I had to giggle...I felt as if Charla has been following me around the last 20 years. Watching me as my body matured from a young married 105lb women to a stay at home, mom of twins and NOT 105lbs (hey, I still have 2 of those 3 numbers in my weight...they've just added a friend and I'm not telling you which one!) Grab a coffee, get this book and then go shopping for clothes that will not make you look f

Best style book ever!!!!

There is nothing this book doesn't cover, with great fun tips. It is so easy to read, like a magazine. You get your money's worth, because it's a thick, heavy, colorful book with great pictures. Since I am a plus size, I like that she used some plus size models. It made me feel at home. I will never look fat again, so thank you Charla! This is my bible next to her first book.
