Présentation de l'éditeur
Structured as a fun and accessible self-guided makeover, Already Pretty is the antidote to cookie-cutter style guides. Instead of dumping you into a body type category and restricting what you can and cannot wear, this friendly, funny, body-positive book presents a highly customizable regimen to help you define and hone your own personal style. Packed with enlightening exercises, mix-and-match figure flattery techniques, and effective tutorials, Already Pretty illustrates how personal style can foster self-love and self-respect. After determining your current personal style and evaluating pieces from your existing wardrobe, you’re taught to define your ideal style – a process that includes identifying personalized figure flattery priorities. These priorities are tailored to your preferences and your unique body, and may be quite different from the style mandates parroted by fashion industry insiders. Working through this process moves you closer to your fashion aspirations, ultimately allowing you to merge your current and ideal styles through careful culling of your current wardrobe and targeted shopping for new, key pieces. Already Pretty reveals the fundamentals of fashion and figure flattery, but also encourages you to create a style that is both expressive and unique. This book is judgment-free and reader-centric in every way. A true guidebook to crafting personal style, Already Pretty teaches women to love their bodies, dress impeccably, and embrace the philosophy that dressing well is key to living well.

I guess I must have thought there was some secret in here about creating style but it's very basic information about what looks good on you if you have narrow shoulders vs. broad shoulders, thick waist vs. thin waist, etc. I can't imagine going through all the exercises in this book and getting any new information about which things look good on me and which things don't. Maybe I pay more attention to this or I was taught well growing up but really, how can a grown woman NOT know these things about her body. I read this in maybe an hour and was very disappointed. It's for women who really have no clue at all about dressing themselves. Watch "What Not to Wear" and you'll get much more from that than you will from this. Too bad because it's a good idea.

Nothing new worth reading that I didn't already know. Nothing earth-shattering that I couldnt hear on The View, the Today Show or any Oprah-esque tv show. Save your money!

Go to her website, alreadypretty.com, and search her "dressed for" posts. Scroll through and ask yourself, do I want this person dressing me? I certainly wish I had done the same.

The information offered can be found for free online! She does not give any new perspective on dressing at all! Luckily, I borrowed this book instead of buying it- so I am not out any $$. There are many other books on the market that offer new ideas and tips- so save your money!

I borrowed this book from my local library but I'm incredibly glad I never paid any money for it. The author seems obsessed with legs far apart, hands on hips poses and clothing from the 1990s. Every styling choice is obsessed over to the minutiae to the point that even though I have no neuroses about my body shape, I am left feeling perhaps I should feel more insecure! There are lots of other, better known styling guides that are worth paying for.
