The book the fashion industry doesn’t want you to read

The most revolution book on color since 1830.

There’s a revolutionary new book coming out in late April. It contains scientifically-proven evidence that you don’t know what you look good in. Nor does anyone in the fashion industry. They don’t want you to know the truth, because they know you’ll no longer be at the whim of fleeting color and style trends. You’ll …

What’s Wrong With This Picture…

From left to right: The woman on the left looks reasonably good. However, she looks like an entry-level greenhorn because of (1) her long teenage hair and (2) lack of accessories such as earrings and a belt.

Washington Needs to Give up the Blue Tie Affair

Shortly after the election, I wrote about the ineffective pastel blue ties that currently permeate Washington. Both President-elect Obama and VP-elect Biden wore pastel blue ties for their first press conference after winning the election. The blog was entitled “Barack Obama States that CHANGE IS COMING.

Michelle Obama Maximizes Her Favorite Accessories

The most effective way to make a statement with your outfit is by using color or accessories.
