"We must all listen to Nina Garcia. Sharp and genuine, her advice can make or break an outfit."
-Tim Gunn, Fashion Consultant and Mentor of Project Runway

Believe me-there's pressure when you're deciding what to wear to a meeting with an iconic fashion designer or a member of the press. It can be terrifying. But instead of panicking, I stop, take a deep breath, and remember that I speak "fashion." And by the time you have read this book, you'll be able to speak the language of fashion too, at all the key moments of your life.
-from Nina Garcia's Look Book

Every woman, at one time or another, has contemplated an all-important job interview, first date, formal party, or important presentation and wailed to herself and to her closest girlfriends, "What should I wear" InNina Garcia's Look Book, style guru Nina Garcia solves this universal quandary with an inspired and unbeatable combination of fashion knowledge and common sense. She shows us the pieces, the accessories, and the strategies to create the looks that will take us from the first day on a job through the day we ask for a raise and beyond, from the first time we meet our boyfriend's parents (or his children) through the day we see our own children walk down the aisle. With Nina by your side, you can't go wrong. You'll have all the tips you will need to navigate every day looking your best.

True style is not about having a closet full of expensive and beautiful things-it is instead about knowing when, where, and how to utilize what you have.

This book is a hoot!! Really, if you need her advice about what to wear to a funeral . . . well, you've got bigger problems than that, sweetie. However, I must say it was carefully written.

Interesting, pretty book like all of her others, though frankly I've already forgotten almost everything in this since I last read it. I think she's got good ideas, but if you've already read the One-Hundred, it's pretty similar stuff.
