Disappointing Oct. 21 2010
By Jeanne Boyd - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The title and subject were interesting to me but the execution was very disappointing. Bloch includes a lot of name dropping and anecdotes about the famous people he knows. He also repeats the same closet cleaning advice that I've read in countless other style and organizing articles and books. Unfortunately there's not much in this book that is new, original or particularly helpful regarding the title subject.

This Book Redid My Wardrobe! Jan. 21 2011
By Lyon - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Who says you have to have money to look good!? Not Phil! This book is not something I would normally have read, but I am SO GLAD I did! Im not one of those guys that would break my bank on a designer pair of jeans or shirt just to look good....but also never was very 'thrifty' either. Phillip Bloch has written the laymen's guide to fashion! Something for the normal person that shops on occasion and doesnt really know how to make it pop. I loved this book so much I gave it as a stocking stuffer this past holiday. I thought there was some great advice here during a time when my wallet definitely could use a little savings. A Great Quick informative read! Be ready to take notes

not what I'd expected Nov. 3 2010
By Amber Massey - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a book for people who have a shopping addiction, and may be the right book to help someone like that. I am already very frugal and need something to help me pick just the few things needed for a basic wardrobe.

The Shopping Diet Oct. 6 2011
By Toni Campbell - Published on
Format: Paperback
Because of my chronic underemployment, I've never had a shopping problem. I am definitely not a shopaholic and upon initially reading this I thought this book wasn't for me. But I think that this book can be helpful for anyone.

Phillip Bloch is a fashion stylist to the stars and regular people who can afford him. As a professional shopper he is more than qualified to offer advice on curbing your overspending and cultivating a closet that works best for you. Written like a diet book including sections called "Digest This" and "Battle of the Bulge", Bloch even has a clothing pyramid based on the FDA's old food pyramid.

Unlike other books on shopping and fashion, Bloch doesn't bog you down with a lot of glossy photos of clothing that may be out of style in a season or two. Instead he packs real world advice on being stylish without landing in debtor's prison.

Self Esteem builder Jan. 20 2011
By Koby Ben - Published on
Format: Paperback
Love the book.
As a life and personal transformation coach I recommend it to my clients.
It is not just a tool to save money but it helps in making the right choices
in putting together our garb. Being able to feel good about your
financial choices and look good at the same time.... Doesn't get better then that.
Thank you Phillip Bloch
