Let me just start by saying WoW! This book is jam packed full of beautiful imagery and tons of creative ways as to pairing items together that make a wardrobe that is uniquely you. What a fun adventure this book was. I will say some of the ensembles were a bit far fetched for my personal style but I can see how just about everything presented in this book would look great on different body types and style types. I loved the rule breakers segment and my favorite by far was the one piece three ways. I often get stuck on the creative side when it comes to pairing 1 item in different ways and pairing accessories so both of these segments were super helpful. Even if the outfits themselves don't speak to you the creative ways in which you can combine clothing is incredibly fun and vibrant in this book. I would strongly recommend this read to anyone who has a love of fashion or who just likes to look at beautiful pictures (the photography in this book is great). I loved the quirky feel and all the Q&A's. Such a great read; this will be on my coffee table for years!!! I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my fair and honest review from bloggingforbooks.com. All opinions expressed are my own.
