Now, now, don't worry... nobody said that statement in the title of this post to me!
Well, okay, maybe Jacqui Stafford did in her new book "The Wow Factor," but I'm pretty sure that was directed at everyone, not just me.
Do you remember when I met Jacqui? It was love at first "darling."
She offered me great fashion advice that day. Seriously, I still remember every bit of it and repeat it to myself often. But now I have a whole BOOK of Jacqui, not just a one-time encounter to remember!
In two words, this book is SO FUN (just like Jacqui).
The pages are littered with drawings and pictures and PRACTICAL advice that every woman can use.
First off, Jacqui starts off by helping you identify your body shape in, true to Jacqui form, a FUN way!
Then, she tells you exactly what that shape can or can't wear.
But don't think this book is just about that. Oh no, she truly spills the beans on fashion industry secrets!
Seriously, it's jaw dropping what this industry makes us think is "real" and Jacqui tells all!
THEN, Jacqui tells you MORE secrets...
Like, what to buy and when (for the best discount!):
And what style of shoe to wear with basic wardrobe pieces:
This book is FULL of fun and "secrets-spilled" information, and just when you think Jacqui can't get any more real with you, you find at the end of each chapter "confessions from the confidential fashion files!"
This one in particular had me cracking up!!
This chapter brought back painful memories of when I was in Havana, Cuba, for a professional salsa dance invitational (another story, another time) and swiped on a now-thankfully-discontinued light-reflecting concealer under my eyes. "What's wrong with her face?" I heard a few confused Cuban audience members mutter as I swirled, oblivious, around the dance floor. The circa-1980s strobe lights had transformed my under-eye concealer into glow-in-the-dark warrior stripes.HA! I love it!
This book is a fantastic read from a fantastically fun (and real) person!
Jacqui's book comes out February 5th, but you can pre-order your copy on Amazon now!
Disclosure: I was sent this book as a review copy. All opinions expressed are my own and don't go 'round saying otherwise, ya hear?
