Most women, at some point, dread the prospect of getting dressed. What woman hasn’t wished to be thinner, trimmer, taller, lighter, or to fit perfectly into a pencil skirt? How many have been deflated by their reflections in the mirror upon realizing that the outfit they want to wear isn’t necessarily the outfit they should wear?
Magazine writer Mimi Spencer is on a mission to show women that they don’t have to go on a diet to look and feel amazing. No calorie counting, major food restrictions, or fasting is required. What is required is an honest examination of eating habits, a healthy sense of humor, and the willingness to say good-bye to unflattering wardrobe items. From how to buy the perfect pair of pants to how to save a few calories at dinner, Mimi offers up an unconventional array of figure-flattering tips, including:
- eliminate elicit food stashes--dump the guilty secrets hiding in your glove compartment, freezer, or purse
- tape an unflattering celebrity photo to your refrigerator to dissuade you from opening its door
- always opt for heels--they elongate the legs and add sizzle to any outfit
With ample doses of empathy and irreverence, Spencer offers candid advice--drawn from years spent at the frontlines of fashion--that is sure to help women everywhere look and feel their most fabulous.
