I loved this book and it has helped me change my wardrobe to simple basics, that are timeless. Both friends and family have commented on how they like what I am wearing. It's still a work in progress, but with the basics in mind, I feel so much more clearer about what to wear. And I care more now too, about what to wear. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and the sketches are fun.
Great fun book, especially if you have been to Paris or are going to Paris.
