Review: Shop Your Closet

Shop Your Closet: The Ultimate Guide to Organizing Your Closet with Style - Melanie Charlton Fascitelli, Kevin Clark, Melanie Charlton

I have a weird passion for books about style and wardrobe organization, so I decided to take a look at Shop Your Closet via my Scribd trial.


This one went into the DNF "pile" at about 15%.


When Fascitelli marched out those horrible "pear," "apple," etc. body types, I rolled my eyes and removed the book from my library. THIS HAS BEEN OVERDONE, STYLE WRITERS. I'm so sick of people's bodies being compared to fruit, or geometric shapes, or what have you. Maybe it's a useful for someone, but in all honesty I think it's just lazy shorthand. We're all people shaped. I've read all of Nina Garcia's books (which I highly recommend, especially the first two- The Little Black Book of Style and The One Hundred) and she gives plenty of helpful advice without resorting to produce. I never even got far enough in this one to learn any organizational tips; I'm afraid they'll be just as hackneyed.


Plus, for a book about beautiful clothes, the illustrations were dull and repetitive.
