Some people just know how to put a fabulous wardrobe together, but others have to work at it. I know my wardrobe is suffering from severe neglect over the last couple of years, and I am working on changing that. Doing some of the exercises, I realised that my wardrobe could do with a dose of more dramatic clothes. Perhaps I want to stand out more! Kind of hard to do if you are about 5 foot tall.
The book has a kind of soul searching psychological focus, which is useful for working out why not much of what we have is wearable. There are the people who might buy great clothes, but then save them for 'best', and they go out of style. Then there are people who think they don't deserve to look good. Other excuses are buying clothes a size too small, because they were on sale, or clinging to a style that no longer suits. There are a whole lot of other reasons, which makes for interesting reading and much reflecting. The second half of the book is devoted to the classic wardrobe purge and then how to shop carefully.
