The Truth About Style
Stacy London
Summary:

With her unique talent for seeing past disastrous wardrobes to the core emotional issues that can lead to sartorial crises, style sevant Stacy London has transformed the looks and lives of hundreds of guests on TLC’s hit TV show What Not to Wear. Now, for the first time in print, London not only shares the principles of how to dress well and why you should but also examines the reasons why so many women don’t. 
In The Truth About Style, London moves beyond the often intimidating season trends of fashion, which so often leave women feeling inadequate and judgmental about their own bodies, to the more valuable and enduring concept of style: a way to dress that enhances and celebrates who they really are. She opens the book by sharing her own history and struggle with self-esteem on the path to her discovery of the healing power of style and learning to find self-esteem on the path to her discovery of the healing power of style and learning to find self-confidence. These hard-won truths form the core of The Truth About Style: a series of case studies featuring nine real women, each of \whom faces a particular issue that many women confront when shopping or opening their closet doors. Drawing upon her own experiences to assess the hurdles that have held them back, London leads them through detailed “start-overs,” in which she helps them select looks that not only flatter them physically but reflect and celebrate their personalities. 
If you have ever despaired of finding the right clothes or being able to love the body you have, The Truth About Style will be an inspiring, liberating, and often humorous guide to finding your truest self-expression. 

This book seemed like it was going to be great. It’s an awesome format, with lots of pictures and each chapter following a different person, so I thought that would work really well, but it fell a little flat. 
There was just something about it that kept me from staying interested? But that may be because I’m super stressed, whatever.
It was still pretty good and, like I said, good format
4/5
