Simple Isn’t Easy

This one was recommended as a personal classic in an LJ column, recommended in glowing enough terms for me to ILL it.

book coverSimple Isn’t Easy by Olivia Goldsmith and Amy Fine CollinsThis is a book of style, rather than fashion advice. No looking at colors and sillouhettes here; rather, Goldsmith and Collins aim for you to have your closet hold only clothes that you love and look good in. There’s a step-by-step process to help you find what clothes really work on you and for your lifestyle. It really is advice that doesn’t date easily. They err on the European side of fewer, high-quality clothes, already assembled into outfits in the closet. This is an excellent book for people who love to shop and are tempted to come home with clothes that are fun and easy to buy but that don’t work for them. Sadly, I have come to the conclusion that now is not really the time for me to spend money on nice clothes, as I don’t have the money or the time for the process, nor will anything I own stay looking nice past the first wearing just now. However, for those willing to put some up-front effort into developing their own look and wardrobe, this is an excellent choice.
