Friday Reads: Style on a Shoestring by Andy Paige
Andy Paige credits herself for being a Thrifty Diva and this book is chock full of tips and tricks to maximize your wardrobe building budget. From how to fit yourself properly for a bra to what essentials a gal needs to work with, she fills up this relatively quick read with lots of handy helpers. She maps out very clearly what you need to do to build a quality wardrobe that makes you look and feel fabulous!
This was the second time I have read this book and, again, I found it quite entertaining. She does have a tendency to be a little over-enthusiastic, but that never hurt anyone. I particularly love the shopping calendar she lays out to explain when the best times to shop for certain items are to help you maximize your budget. It is a fun read and I definitely feel better equipped to hit the stores in a week or two to see what I can do to get myself outfitted for work again. Best of all, Gap just announced a Give & Get campaign so I have a 30% off coupon just waiting for me to use in a couple of weekends (don't worry, I'll post the link closer to the date so you all can take advantage too). With Andy's help - I have a shopping list ready to go and, though I might dread it, I am at least prepared to do what needs to be done. Wish me luck!
As for recommending this book - yes. definitely.
