The Style Strategy: A Less-Is-More Approach to Staying Chic and Shopping Smart - Nina Garcia Though I prefer her first two books (The Little Black Book of Style and The One Hundred), I like to break this one out whenever I'm in a closet-cleaning mood. Nina is a decently engaging writer, though she name drops too much (but hey, she's a fashion editor, it's in her job description). I appreciate her perspective on how to make what you already have work, even if her jeans could pay off my student loans. I'm a hardcore thrift store shopper, so the litany of brand names that run through all of her works mean very little to me in any practical sense, but I do like occasionally imagining what it must be like to buy Prada or Jimmy Choos, sort of like pretending I could be an astronaut or a lion tamer.
