Review - Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad by Shari Braendel

Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad
by
Shari Braendel

In Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad, Shari Braendel teaches you how to appreciate the body God gave you and how to always look your best-from conquering the battle of finding the right swimsuit, to choosing how many bangles you should wear or how big your purse should be, to wearing the right style jeans that will best flatter your thighs or hips, to finding the best places to shop to suit your unique personal style.

Many of us are watching reality TV shows to get a clue on how to dress right and look good. We hungrily purchase fashion magazines any time the cover article has something to do with how we can hide our despised body parts. We make mad dashes to the local department store to pick up the new anti-wrinkle cream Oprah promised will take ten years away from our face.

We care about how we look. Why is that? Because we’re women, and women love to look and feel good. God made us that way. And this is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. God loves beauty. He doesn’t want us to reflect his image being sloppy, disheveled women of God who don’t pay any attention to what we look like.

Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad will show you how to look and feel your best, no matter what day it is or what the occasion. And it will also stop you from screaming at the top of your lungs, “I have nothing to wear.”

Camy here: I was very impressed with this book. The concept itself was intriguing and I was anxious to get a copy to read it (I received a free copy from Blog Tour Spots for review).

She offers so MANY different aspects of fashion that I wouldn't have even thought of, but which were very informative. I love the pictures of "real women" in the book of all different body and face shapes, ages, and skin/hair colors.

The only thing I would have liked more of would have been more pictures of different fashion options. I realize she needed to cover several different types of women, but more ideas for fashion options would have made this book absolutely perfect for me. Or maybe she can add more photos to a section on her website, to compliment the book?

Anyway, a really great book for women like me who don't really know that much about fashion. This book gives good advice for how to choose what will flatter you in all aspects of the way you look.

  5. I really liked this one. I loved that her models were real and even plus sized. I can see your point, too, about having more photos of the style options.
