How to Get Dressed // Book Review


How to Get Dressed 
by Alison Freer

Costume Designer Alison Freer's styling kit is a magic bag of tricks, built to solve every single wardrobe malfunction on earth. TV and film productions wait for nothing, so her solution have to work fast. In How to Get Dressed Alison distills her secrets into a fun, comprehensive style guide focused on rethinking your wardrobe like a fashion expert and making what's in your closet work for you.
    ...instead of repeating boring style "rules" Alison breaks the rules and gets real about everything from bras to how to deal with inevitable fashion disasters. Including helpful information such as how to skip ironing and the dry cleaners, remove every stain under the sun and help clueless men get their sartorial acts together, How to Get Dressed has hundreds of insider tips from Alison's arsenal of tools and expertise.

I'd never read a fashion book before, but was interested in a review by one of my favoritest bloggers, so I started reading this with high hopes. The book itself is adorable, with gold and polka dot accents all the way through. I love books that are not only interesting, but are also designed attractively and adorable, and this book was both! And her tips and tricks are insanely practical. It's stuff real people can use, not a book of designer clothing and tips only people with a huge budget can use. Practical advice for using what you have, altering to make things more flattering, and what to buy intentionally instead of just splurging on lots of stuff, 
     I would definitely recommend this book to those interested in dressing intentionally and learning to be practical, frugal, and comfortable with their wardrobe.
