GREAT BOOK GETS YOU IN THE DIY MOOD!
When I got this book delivered I couldn't put it down. My mind wandered through the various DIY projects that you can come up with household finds and jaunts down to the local craft store. The projects offered in this book are very on-trend and I can see myself performing many of them for this Christmas presents for my fashionable friends. I love how the steps for each project are very easy to follow with photographs marked up with step-by-step annotations. What a refreshing book, now I'm looking for wholesale bits, found bits, putting my spin on it and soon to be wearing my own creations.

Very nice
Bought this a a Christmas present for my aunt who has always loved doing all kinds of stuff herself, "hand-made". She loves this book, nicely styled and lots of great tips!

Interesting book - not for me!
I wanted to like this book - I really did! I always have grand ideas of being crafty and making my own DIYs that look spectacular. I think the ideas were good in theory but I wasn't 100% about the execution. They are some neat ideas like how to make your own faux fur vest but some other ideas were a little silly like the necklace made with stockings and rubber balls. Though at the price there's nothing lost in giving the book a go if you're into your DIY - the projects are simple enough to do and there are some interesting ideas.

Low level
The creative level of this book is too easy, I very much had the feeling as if it was a DIY-book with a nice cover but it could have gone much further regarding originality and fashion level. It was a birthday-present for my 12Y old niece but I could see the dissapointment on her face!!

Could do with more Exciting Content
I think overall this book is stylish and good. However, I wasn't wow over by the ideas and suggestions. I think it could do with more exciting and updated content.

Great Photos & Well Researched
In my humble opinion, overall a 5/5: PRO: The number & quality of images is first-rate. PRO: The book has a personal touch since the author discusses personal fashion influences, from childhood to the present (including images of family, friends, and herself). PRO: The organization, selected images, & descriptions helped me define my style better than ever before. PRO: The author has researched the topic at a PhD level, from old Hollywood starlets (e.g., Jean Harlow) to modern day icons. PRO: Dorothy Dandridge is included in the book. I've often wondered why Dandridge does not receive the same fashion icon status as Audrey Hepburn. She deserves it. About time. CON: I do not share the author's love of fur. The author advocates for fur. This is in direct opposition to my own ideological views. I wish she loved faux-fur instead. CON: Angelina Jolie is included & I don't quite understand why. All other inclusions are right-on IMHO.

So many photos!!!
I ordered this book as a present to my friend. But now I am planning to order it for myself! I liked the quality of paper; the book contains chapters on different styles and shopping; all styles are illustrated by tons of photos; some pages are devoted to real icons in fashion! Love the book!

Inspirational
This book is fantastic. Broken up by style it really helps you focus on the details that create your look. It also provides inspiration to try new looks and how to achieve them. Love the reference photos from each era and look. Another great addition to my ever growing pile of design/fashion books.
