In this funny, chic and wise book, award-winning fashion writer Hadley Freeman separates the nonsense from the fabulous and shows that falling in love with an It bag doesn't mean you have the IQ of an It girl. Ever the entertaining guide, Hadley shows how to wear shorts without looking like an extra in Hamlet, what to spend money on, and what not to, and why only harpists should wear velvet. And most of all, she shows that you don't need to be thin, young, tall or rich to enjoy fashion, you just need a sense of humour. If you've ever lusted after an improbably priced key ring, wondered why there's a large chunk of fashion that girls get but boys don't, got into an exuberant state at a party and left your 'clutch' bag in the ladies or spent fruitless hours worrying about what to wear on a date, this is the book for you.
