Fun book on styles, especially for teenagers! Makes a great gift.
This book has helped me a lot actually. I love how she gives you options for building a new wardrobe without even spending any money. I have a lot of style guides and this one is the first I've seen that brings something new to the table! Amen.
Love this book!! A definite must have for all girls interested in style! Great tips and outfit ideas too :D
Finally, someone to steer us hard working stylish women in the right direction! What girl doesn't want to walk into a room and be noticed? Sometimes it's difficult to figure how to coordinate a killer outfit while being economical. Shauna's blog and book has opened my eyes to the possibilities of being a fashion icon without breaking the bank. Both my closet and my bank account are thankful! Thank you Penny Chic!!!
