#6 Shopping for the Real You by Andrea Pflaumer

Book recommendation by Bridget Fonger from Superhero of Love

This is the one fashion and style book I recommend for my clients who have gone through – or are currently going through – a rough patch in their relationships and express a desire to spruce up their look. Instead of simply telling the reader what to wear and how to dress, Pflaumer offers a path toward greater self-awareness, both visually and psychologically. It awakens more appreciation for the unique beauty they possess. The material is presented in an extremely friendly and entertaining manner. And she really knows her stuff. I find it particularly notable that she presents the information, very specific information, (and great illustrations) about coloring, style, age, and lifestyle for ALL ethnicities. That’s something that is rare to find that in most fashion books. I think it’s one of the reasons she gets so many high ratings.

Ametora traces the Japanese assimilation of American fashion over the past hundred and fifty years, showing how Japanese trendsetters and entrepreneurs mimicked, adapted, imported, and ultimately perfected American style, dramatically reshaping not only Japan’s culture but also our own in the process.
