What a wonderful title and what a fantastic book. It is both entertaining and informative. It deserves pride of place in any fashionista’s library.
I have met Alyson Walsh and can definitely confirm that she walks her talk. She writes as she speaks with knowledge and authenticity.
I trained as an image consultant and have been around the fashion industry for many years. Yet I found loads of information in Alyson’s book that I had not even thought of. All her advice is practical, cost effective and easy to implement.
The book is beautiful illustrated by Leo Greenfield and I particularly like the interviews with mature women who have all developed their own style and have not been swayed by passing trends.
The book is easy to navigate as it is divided into manageable sections. I like the “Grown-up style tribe” section. I probably come under the category of “Gentlewoman” (below left) aspiring to “fabulous femme” (below right).
How ever many books on fashion and beauty you already have on your shelves I highly recommend you add “Style Forever” to your list.
