Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Style Necessity! I LOVED this book! I couldn't put it down when I bought it, and its still a staple in my collection to this day because I find it is a helpful and inspirational tool for developing your own unique style (so its about more than just fashion!). Jamie is wonderful to read because she makes it feel like you know her and are a close friend of hers. Her sense of humor is refreshing, her illustrations are inspirational, and her love of fashion just permeates the pages and is completely contagious! I had completely given up on fashion and style until I read this book, but now I can't imagine being without it. Buy it. Read it. Love it. Refer back to it. Like a good trench coat -- this book is timeless.
