Good Girls Don't Have To Dress Bad

I was pleasantly surprised to find that Good Girls Don’t Have To Dress Bad wasn’t just another “fluffy” fashion guide.

This was probably the most comprehensive book I’ve read on the subject, including the how to’s of dressing to compliment your body type, the right hair/glasses/accessories for your coloring and face shape, make-up tips, skin care and more.  

This book proves that modesty doesn’t have to be boring or tasteless.  I appreciate Shari Braendel sharing her years of experience and knowledge and putting them into this book. 

This is not only a great guide for Christian women – but every woman who wants to look her best.   One of my favorite parts of this book is that Shari is REAL and shares the fact that she personally fluctuates between a size 12 and 14. I love that!  I am so tired of reading fashion advice from “stick” women who weigh next to nothing and wear a double zero! 

Real sized women can find great tips and secrets on how to look fashionable and classy without breaking the bank.  Shari includes body type descriptions along with very tasteful pictures of women of various shapes which really helped me learn what body type I am (and it’s not the usual pear, apple, etc comparisons!).  I also liked how in- depth she was with teaching her readers how to learn which colors look best on them.  I was shocked to learn that I shouldn’t being wearing black which is my favorite color!

This book also includes specific brand names of clothes that are a good fit for each body type along with the names of stores in various price ranges where you can find these items. This book is the encyclopedia of fashion/makeup and looking your best – a must have for every woman who wants to look great and feel good about herself.
