My Review: 

Before I begin my review, I must give a thumbs up or two to the beautiful illustrations in this book.  Now for the review...

Your Body, Your Style: Simple Tips on Dressing to Flatter starts out by giving a glimpse inside the author's life and the reasons why she got into dress design.  I thoroughly love finding out how people got to where they are. Rani explains that the purpose of writing her book was to guide people through simple techniques and gives suggestions on how to look at your body to see what you can make better.  It's a very encouraging book.

I wanted to review this book because I'm all into fashion.  But, I'm tired of nothing looking right and have often thought about designing my own clothes but a sewing girl I'm not.  I especially loved it when Rani says, "Imperfection is beautiful."  That's me - imperfection all the way.

I really found this a very informational book that would guide me into realizing that there are ways to build your wardrobe to flatter you no matter what your body type.  And I learned I am an apple (size wise) and I loved it that she could help me by drawing attention AWAY from my ever-expanding waist (hey I've had kids what do you expect?).  Ha.  This and more makes for very good reading if you're like me and feel you have nothing to wear.

I enjoyed reading this book and would give it 5 book trees!
