This is going to be a short review, just a heads up. xD
Can you make yourself up in five minutes flat? Make the first move without breaking a sweat? Hang a picture without becoming unhinged? Get out of a car -- or an unpleasant situation -- gracefully in a short skirt? Load an iPod as effortlessly as a dishwasher? If not, international style and fashion journalist Camilla Morton can help you navigate these and more than two hundred other hazards of modern living with grace and aplomb. Much more than just a style manual or crash course in social skills, How to Walk in High Heels also illuminates the finer points of achieving better homes and gardens, tackling technophobia, climbing the career ladder, and joining the jet set.
From the practical, such as what to do when a heel breaks and how to catch a mouse, to the imaginative, such as how to enjoy karaoke and swim in sunglasses, How to Walk in High Heels overflows with useful nuggets of advice delivered in the author's inimitable witty style, accompanied by a foreword from Dior's John Galliano and a Louis Vuitton trunkful of insight from experts including: -Manolo Blahnikon How to Pick a Shoe -Dolce & Gabbana on How to Get Ready in Five Minutes -Gisele Bundchen on How to Look Good in a Photo -Jade Jagger on How to Compile Your Own Soundtrack
This comprehensive do-everything-better bible takes the guesswork out of flaunting your fabulousness so that you can stop teetering and start striding confidently through the obstacle course of life.
Every woman should own and have this book on her shelf. It is a book that you can just leave on your shelf and go back to it when you need to know how to do something.
I took a while to read this page by page. It was like reading a text book, but since it's a self help book it's suppose to be like reading a text book. I've read multiple self help books, and I've found them all very useful to me.
I eventually skipped some parts of the book because I thought them useless to be, like the part about technology. I see now that a lot has been developed since the time the book was published.
Just like the books' title How to Walk in High Heels, I now know how to walk in high 4-5 inches heels; I just need some practice, a lot of it.
While reading, I found the book very amusing, I've had some laugh out loud's and some small smiles, it was very fun to read.
I would totally recommend this book to every woman out there. Just to randomly pick up when ever you need a tip to know how to do something.
