YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR
Hey everyone, we've got company in town so I'll try to get another post up this week for books and I probably won't get to choosing book winners until this weekend so please bear with me on this! But in the meantime, here's a great self-help style guide that you'll love! Hope you enjoy! If you love Project Runway or any of the fashion shows on TV, or TLC's show What Not To Wear, this one is RIGHT UP YOUR ALLEY!
If you’re like most women, you aren’t exactly thrilled with your wardrobe, and if you are, then wonderful for you and you can go click onto another web page right now.
Good. Glad to see you’re a normal woman and that you’re still here.
Do you often go into your closet, that’s filled with tons of clothes, some with tags still on, some without tags, some items that have never seen the light of day, and you think, “I’ve got nothing to wear?”
Dr. Jennifer Baumgartner has written a book that’s part fashion guide, part self-help that will guide you through your closet and your head to help you figure out your personal style and why you choose to wear the things you do.
From color, to size, to showing too much You Are What You Wear will help you discover the psychology behind why you choose what you choose to wear. This guide will also help you uncover the reasons why you shop and what you shop for – are you searching for particular labels, are you searching for items to cover yourself up? Are you trying to stay in a certain decade? Are you trying to be someone you’re not?
From chapters that discuss closets that are overflowing, dressing for work, mom jeans, dressing your age, avoiding mirrors (guilty!), buying more than you need, being bored with your look, there is seriously something in this guide for every woman.
You Are What You Wear will change the way you look at your wardrobe and yourself. It can kick up your self-esteem and make you happy about your appearance in a way you’ve never thought possible!
Jennifer Baumgartner PsyD, author of YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR, was always fascinated by the internal reasons for our clothing choices. Having had a history of working in fashion and trained as a psychologist, she decided to blend both of her passions to create a new way examining what we wear, the Psychology of Dress. In addition to running her wardrobe consulting business, InsideOut, Dr. B specializes in the treatment of mood, anxiety, substance, and eating disorders.

If you'd like a shot at winning this book, tell me what the OLDEST ITEM is in your closet and why you refuse to get rid of it! I just recently cleaned out my closet (like in January), and my friend made me get rid of a bunch of stuff, but the oldest item I have is a shirt I actually USED to wear to my second job out of college (in 1992!) that I NOW wear to bed at night. I can't believe I used to wear it WITH A SKIRT!!!
Tell me about your oldest item and you'll be entered to win YOU ARE WHAT YOU WEAR!!!
