off the bookshelf

Another great joy of mine in winter is curling up on the couch or in bed with a good book, and I'm currently re-reading Just try it on by Susan Redstone.  I first picked this book up a few years ago in a $2 book bin and I've never looked back since.  

Only down side is its written for the US so the month-by-month shopping is a little out for australia but the fundamentals are the same.  Redstone gives great tips on selecting pieces to cultivate one's personal style and some of my favorite chapters are on how to:
Assemble your must-have Fashion Emergency Kit
Get shoe smart--the most important times of the year to buy!
Be the best-dressed wedding guest
Snag the swimwear that makes you smile
Overall, a fun read if you are into organizing your closet each season and love shopping for the latest and greatest.  I did love the comments on cutting out the size tags because clothing is all about fit not just the numbers companies put on tags.

So if you can get your hands on a copy I suggest you do so and have a little read, you'll never know what great advice you can find.
