Nicola worked for 2 years in between styling clients to personally write the book to guide women through the process that she takes her clients on during wardrobe consultations and personal shopping, so that more women could experience greater confidence when feeling lost with their style and image.
"This book covers all there is to know about revising your wardrobe so you'll never have to say you have nothing to wear. It's very thorough and helpful about what to get rid of, what to keep, and what to buy. It covers all body shapes. It gets you started on the right track so, in the future, you'll have the right clothes for whatever occasion arises. If you follow the author's advice, you'll have the correct accessories (belts, shoes, bags, scarves) and the correct foundation garments as well. Great advice from a real pro!!"
