9780060794194: Secrets of a Fashion Therapist: What You Can Learn Behind the Dressing Room Door

Go from clueless to confident in the dressing room.

If you're a "fashion buff," then this book is for you. Betty Halbreich, the legendary director of personal shopping services at New York's chicer-than-chic Bergdorf Goodman, draws on her exquisite fashion sense and years of experience to help you dress to feel beautiful, confident, and perfectly at home in your own personal style. As your fashion therapist, Betty will give you valuable tips on:

  • Shopping like a pro in an enormous store (even if the prices seem high and the salespeople haughty)
  • Getting the help you need from the store's sales force
  • Dressing for any occasion
  • And much more!

Witty, warm, and wonderfully illustrated, this guide to shopping and dressing is the perfect accessory to any wardrobe.

About the Author:

Betty Halbreich was born and raised in Chicago, where she started playing dress-up as soon as she was able to rummage through her mother's closet—and she hasn't stopped experimenting with clothes ever since. In her thirty-plus years as director of Solutions at New York City's famed Bergdorf Goodman specialty store, Betty has helped make the world a better-dressed place by working with countless designers and showing generations of women how to create their own style.

Sally Wadyka made her first fashion statement at age six, stubbornly refusing ever to wear a certain red Lacoste dress. Over the years, her taste has expanded. She has written about fashion and beauty for such magazines as Mademoiselle, Elle, Self, and Vogue.

"Betty knows exactly what a client's wardrobe needs before the client even knows she needs it." -- --Susan Lucci

"Walking across the threshold into Betty's office, I get a warm, comfortable feeling--ready to play dress-up!" -- --Bobbi Brown
