by Phillip Bloch
Because of my chronic underemployment, I've never had a shopping problem. I am definitely not a shopaholic and upon initially reading this I thought this book wasn't for me. But I think that this book can be helpful for anyone.
Phillip Bloch is a fashion stylist to the stars and regular people who can afford him. As a professional shopper he is more than qualified to offer advice on curbing your overspending and cultivating a closet that works best for you. Written like a diet book including sections called "Digest This" and "Battle of the Bulge", Bloch even has a clothing pyramid based on the FDA's old food pyramid.
Unlike other books on shopping and fashion, Bloch doesn't bog you down with a lot of glossy photos of clothing that may be out of style in a season or two. Instead he packs real world advice on being stylish without landing in debtor's prison.
