Guide Review - How to Be a Budget Fashionista
Written like your favorite chick lit (thats the fiction book genre, not the bubblegum), this guide is quick, witty, informative and most importantly, fun.
You will speed through this book at the same rate that you read Lauren Weisbergers "The Devil Wears Prada," but with this handy handbook, youll gain knowledge to boot. You always knew Anna Wintour was a controlling diva, but did you know the equivalent of a womens size 11/12 is a boys size 20? Didnt think so.
Not only does "How to Be a Budget Fashionista" reveal tips and tricks for snagging high-end clothes on a low-end budget, but she also provides offbeat home-spa ideas in an entire chapter devoted to frugal beauty. Have you ever considered whisking up an egg and layering it on your face? Maybe not, but after this book you will. The egg, in addition to being delicious, is a great wrinkle reducer.
