I have always loved fashion, so when I heard about the book Refinery 29, I was very much interested.  I have to admit that I had never heard of the Refinery 29-the place to go for fashion trends- website before this book. If you haven’t checked it out before, go to You will appreciate the book so much better afterwards.

Christene Barberich and Piera Gelardi teamed up to create this wonderful fashion guide.  They show you how to push the limits in so many ways.  The contents is divided into 10 categories: brights, layering, denim, good vintage, ugly pretty, ladylike, black, mixed prints, metallics, and tomboy. If that’s not enough, each one of these categories is broken up into subcategories.  For example each subcategory consist of: basic training, style moves, 1 piece, 3 ways, rule breakers, year around, question and answer, and zoom lens.

My favorite category is good vintage because I am a bargain shopper. I do a lot of yard sales and second had stores. So I got a lot of tips. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves fashion. There’s something in this book for every woman.  This book is basically geared towards women. You will see style trends from all over the globe. I think it’s worth every penny of 19.99 US. The best self help fashion guide I have seen.

I recieved this book free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for doing this review. I was not required to write a positive review, all thoughts and opinions are mine.
