From the Back Cover:

In Nina Garcia′s The Little Black Book of Style, she mapped out a core philosophy for fashionistas whose root principal was that looking great must first be accompanied with feeling great. Her follow up, the NYT′s bestselling The One Hundred, shows women everywhere just what pieces they needed to invest in so as to have a timeless closet.

Now, during the economic stresses all Americans are currently feeling, Nina wants to show women how to keep oneself looking stylish and chic while saving money. Armed with her expert "Style Strategy", Nina wants to help shoppers navigate alternatives to attaining high-end fashion "looks" through a variety of options.

The DNA of her "Style Strategy" consists of three core questions.

"What do I have? What do I need? What do I want?" According to Nina, answering each question honestly before making any purchase for oneself helps to eliminate unnecessary spending. She elaborates on each question using the entertaining prose that has drawn thousands of eaders to her previous titles.

The book also addresses how to maximize what you have through maintenance, ingenuity, and creative style choices. Also, dotted throughout the book are incredibly interesting historical facts about women who have remained fashion forward during their own era′s economic hardships.

Bottom-line: Nina wants all women to know that being practical and smart about style and shopping trumps brand name pricing every time.
