Book Review - The Truth About Style

I've been a fan of Stacy London ever since "What Not to Wear" started.  I haven't had cable for several years, and that is one of the shows I actually miss watching.  I loved the fact that it is a makeover show, but they also deal with the emotional side of why women dress badly in the first place.

Stacy's book is similar to the show in that she chose 9 women who needed style makeovers, but also dug deeper into their emotional reasons for the style rut they were each in.  I really enjoyed reading this book.  It was interesting to learn more about Stacy's life and her own insecurities.  It's a good reminder that even the most beautiful and fashionable women are still critical of themselves.  As women, we need to give ourselves a break!          

Also, I am linking up with Shanna today, for her first Random Wednesday Link Up.  You should, too!
