May I suggest a combination?

A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

Great contest. I SO HOPE TO WIN!!! :-)

Wrinkled Shirt Ministries said...

Shari, I love "A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide" It just makes me feel warm and fuzzy all over. The other's are great too but I'm all about true beauty. I can't wait to get my hands on this one!!

Tina Vega said...

Hi Shari - I really like the first title, "A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide." The words "truly beautiful" catches my eye - makes it seem like there may be something more than what's on the outside...

Lisa B @ simply His said...

Out of these three, I think I like A Truly Beautiful You.

I think a better title would be:
A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

There's just something about the You and Your together in the first title that strikes me as weird. That and I really like having the word Personal in the title.

Thank you for sharing!
Lisa B.

Sister Honey Bunch said...

I love this one:

Celebrate Your Beauty! 31 Days to a Wardrobe Makeover

Lisa Roszler said...

YAY, Sheri! I met you at She Speaks and loved your session! I think I understand my colors, but now I need to learn how to dress my body type. For your book, I like the second title. I can almost see the word "TO" emphasized! Plus, I like the word "personal" in there. It makes it, well, more personal! :)

Alyce said...

Hello Friend! I am so excited about this giveaway! You know I am..
I vote for your first title..A Truly Beautiful You, but I also like LisaB's suggestion for it!
Blessings~Alyce

Steph said...

This is a wonderful giveaway. I would vote for "What to Wear! 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover" I vote for this one as it takes a spin on that TV Show "What Not to Wear" and the appeal to that audience. Thanks so much for letting me be a small part in this!

Kelli said...

I like #2. I am a huge fan of "What Not To Wear" so this one got my attention. Thanks for the fun!

Kelli

Kelly said...

Out of the three, I like A Truly Beautiful You, but I like Lisa B's suggestion also for it...thanks for posting such a fun giveaway! Would be a wonderful thing to talk to you about fashion questions!!

Monkey Giggles said...

Hmmm. I like "Celebrate Your Beauty"
This a a great give-away. Thank you for sharing.

tiggerdaisy said...

My thoughts exactly girls!!! I like:

A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

Thanks so much, Shari! This is too fun!!!!

Margaret said...

Hi Shari,
Hopefully my comment won't bore you twice, but I don't think it posted the first time. Of the titles listed I like A Truly Beautiful You, but I think a great title would be something like your workshop, "A Girlfriends Guide to Glamour, A 31 Day Fashion Makeover" or something like that. With pretty graphics like your brochures! I can't wait to read the book this is exciting news! Hugs.

MrsJoeB said...

I think I have to lean towards "A Truly Beautify You". Sounds like a fun book!
Thank you for this give-away. May we all be beautiful in Him!In His Graces~Pamela

Joanie Butler said...

I also wanted to throw out a combined suggestion.
"What to Wear! ~ 31 days to A Truly Beautiful You"

irishgirl said...

Hi Shari!

What a special giveaway - thanks to you and Lysa for putting this together.

I am all about "Celebrating Beauty," so I would go with that title. Or maybe "God's Perfect You: A 31-Day Personal Fashion Makeover"

Have a GREAT day!

Lara <><

Becky said...

Hi Shari,

What about:

What TO Wear: 31 Days to a Truly Beautiful You

I agree that the What to Wear would catch the interest of fans of the TV show, but I love the concept of discovering true beauty, too. Whatever the title, I can't wait to buy it.

I was at the She Speaks Conference in June and soaked up your wisdom. I'm fashion challenged. : ) Actually shopping phobic. : )

Love,
Becky A.

Jenny said...

I like the second one, but I really, really like Becky A.'s idea above. This is definitely a book I would read. I need all the help I can get. :)

Becky said...

oops....I didn't read the other comments first. I guess Joanie and I were thinking alike. : )

Owlhaven said...

"A Truly Beautiful You" is my vote! Thanks for a fun contest!

Mary, mom to many

Celly B said...

What about removing some words?

Truly Beautiful: Your 31-Day Fashion Makeover Guide


I also thought you might like to check out a new blog carnival at my blog: "Thirstin' for the Word Thursdays." Here's the URL:
http://cellybbusyathome.blogspot.com/2008/01/thirstin-for-word-thursdays.html

Good luck on deciding a title. It sounds like a great book!

Laura said...

I like #1. But I also like the suggested title by dcrmom. Sounds exciting!

Just Mom said...

"A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide."

Love that.

Pajama Mama said...

Hi Shari, I am so happy for you and your book being published!!! Woohoo!!!

I agree that the title "What To Wear" would attract those of us who Tivo the What Not to Wear show and watch it while we're folding clothes (me, heehee), but I'm really liking the title "A Truly Beautiful You" better. And it ties in with your website title and your whole message to ladies and girls.

Digging for Pearls said...

A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

This is my pick for your new book. Congratulations on getting it finished.

Amy B said...

Well, this is easy...'


"A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide"

Yep, that sounds awesome to me!

Sarah said...

A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

Carolina Mama said...

Very cool. Love the title "A Truly Beatutiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide." Sounds like a great read.

Janet said...

Celebrate a Truly Beautiful You: 31Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

I like the idea of combining 2 titles to make a great title that sparkles!

Miss Sandy said...

Hi Shari,
I just came from Lysa's and think this is a great idea! I personally like title #3, Celbrate Your Beauty! 31 Days to a Wardrobe Makeover. I like the idea of celebrating who I am, a daughter of the King all glorious within and flawed without, fearfully and wonderfully made in Him image! if even if I am imperfectly proportioned I can still feel and look good. The word celebration brings to mind a joyful event, anticipation, festivity, and having a good time. What better anticipation can there be than to realize that in a 31 day course you can celebrate and anticipate being a better you?
Blessings,
Miss Sandy

Tammy R said...

Celebrate Your Beauty! 31 Days to a Wardrobe Makeover This one caught my eye.

Thanks for the contest.
Tammy

Jennifer said...

Since I am often found standing in fromt of my closet saying, "what to wear, what to wear". My vote is What to Wear! 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

Smiles!

Julie said...

My vote is for the title- What to Wear...!

Tam said...

31 Days to a Truly Beautiful You

It's kind of a mixture of two of your titles. Sounds like a book Christian women today could really use (especially me!).

BeyondBlessed said...

I like "Celebrate Your Beauty! 31 Days to a Wardrobe Makeover". I believe God made everyone truly beautiful - beautiful wardrobe or not.

Debra Zantman said...

Hi Shari,
Thanks for this giveaway, How fun.
I got to speak with you briefly at She Speaks last year. I like Joanie suggestion:
What to Wear: 31 Days to a Truly Beautiful You.
Debra

Pam said...

I'm with several of the others who have suggested a combination title:


A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

I think it describes the content well and doesn't lump it in with all the other fashion "guides" that are out there. I guess it makes it more distinctive from my perspective.

Thanks so much for hosting the giveaway.

Best wishes to the winner and on your upcoming book, whatever the final title ends up being!

Kim said...

I like dcrmom's suggesstion for

A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover

Thank you for hosting the giveaway!

Kathy at Sumballo said...

Here's my vote:
A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

Although I agree that changing the subtitle to "Personal" rather than "Fashion" might appeal to more Christian women who are nervous about the whole fashion scene.

Kristi from NY said...

I think your book is a great idea. I like the idea of Celebrating "Me" the way God made me but I would have to go with dcrmom's suggestion
A Truly Beautiful You: 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover.

Amy L Brooke said...

How about something along the lines of: Highlighting God's Beauty in You: 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

It sounds like something I need! (See my comment at Lysa's!)

MK said...

I have to say the "A Truly Beautiful You" would catch my eye but I'm not sure true beauty has anything to do with a 31-day fashion makeover (unless I missed something in the description). So...I vote for What to Wear!

jody said...

A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide
This one sounds like something I would read... maybe even something I could do. Does this book have anything to do with the Proverbs 31 woman? If it does, you might want to mention that in the title... it would make it more intriguing.

Sandy Lee said...

I suggest a combination of the titles/subtitles:

A Truly Beautiful You! 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover.

There is already a book called What To Wear (as well as What Not to Wear). And the Celebrate title sounds a bit bland.

Denise said...

I would go with title #1. Whatever the book gets titled, it sounds like a great read! Modest is definitely hottest!!

Mocha with Linda said...

Dilemmas, dilemmas! No wonder I can't decide what to wear when I can't even choose a book title!

Although I like these and also some of the selections, I also thought of (I don't think this has been mentioned):
Celebrating Your True Beauty: A 31 Day Guide to Fashion Or
Enhancing Your True Beauty: 31 Days to a Personal Fashion Makeover

I like emphasizing the fact that God has already given us our true beauty; the makeover will just enhance and help us celebrate it.

Starr LaPradd said...

I like "Celebrate Your Beauty". God made all women beautiful in our own way, don't you think? So, we all have something to celebrate!

You are scheduled to come to my Church for our women's conference in March, It's called "Renewed". I can't wait to meet you there. Really looking forward to it!
Blessings,
Starr

Lisa H. said...

Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide gets my vote!

This is awesome and very timely for me right now!

carlyn said...

Going out on my own, sort of:

A Truly Beautiful You: A 31 Day Extreme Fashion Makeoever

Courtney Renee said...

A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

April said...

I like Celebrate your beauty. Many times I feel so blah, and when I say I want a makeover, I feel like I am cutting myself down. But woth that title it is uplifting and encoruaging.
I am also excited about your blog and hearing about you. I direct a dance ministry, and I haev quite a lot of teen girls on the team. One thing I have been working on with them during our devotions this year is how to dress cute and trendy yet be modest. I'll be visiting and talking to you alot, if that is ok!!!

Jesuslover said...

Hi Shari,Congratulations on completing your book. I was at She speaks last June. It was life-changing. I work in the beauty industry as a hairstylist/ educator. I teach stylist haircolor and new techniques. I even had the privledge to cut Lysa and Micca's hair at the conference. I'm often asked fashion questions. I'm not as fashion savy as I'd like to be so a book like this would help me and help me help others with their wardrobe dilemas as well. I may even put a book like this on my work station so clients could browse through it while I'm cutting their hair!!I like the title combo suggestion; Celebrate Your Beauty; 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover.
Blessings,Denise

Toknowhim said...

The "What to Wear" one...it is catchy in a good way..

jd said...

This is similar to Tam's suggestion:

31 Days to the Truly Beautiful You


Thanks for the fun contest!

Cheryl H said...

I like the first title, A Truly Beautiful...
But...what about "The Proverbs 31 Woman Was One Hot Mama & You Can be Too: A Total Makeover in 31 Days" (or some variation along that line)?? Just a thought!
Blessings--this is fun!

savedbygrace said...

"What to Wear. . . ." is my favorite, because it sounds so positive. In contrast to telling us what not to do, this title will tell us what to do. Can't wait for the book to come out - sounds great.
Debbie Carpenter

Anonymous said...

Hi, Shari!

I really like the first title, A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide. It's very catchy and appealing. I would definitely read a book with that title! : ) I hope all the plans for your book will be blessed.

Blessings,
Bethany W.

robinegg12 said...

I like this title alot:

A Truly Beautiful You: Your 31 Day Fashion Makeover Guide

Pick me, please! Thank you.

Rachel said...

I would LOVE to win this but it looks like I am marching to the beat of my own drum here... While I love A Truly beautiful You, for marketing purposes, I think **"What to Wear! 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe makeover"** would end up being more popular mainstream. The tv show What Not To Wear is very popular, so it is using that popularity to our advantage, while also having the words "PERSONAL WARDROBE" makes it seem, well, more personal!

My two cents, for what it is worth! :-) Good luck with the book!!!

Blessings
Rachel

Julie Stiles Mills said...

"What to Wear! 31 Days to a Personal Wardrobe Makeover" I like the idea that it is personal, individualized and makes a promise that you will see change in a month!

Cindy said...

Hi Shari! I just found your blog this week and added you to my bloglines. And now this fun contest! :)

I love Truly Beautiful You. You can't go wrong with any of them; I'm sure your book will be a treat! I can't wait for a copy! :)

Lisa said...

I vote for "A Truly Beautiful You." Thanks for letting us vote--and for the contest!

Honea Household said...

I'm voting a big yes for Marybeth's cute purse! Haha! She told us to come over here and vote for her purse! I love it! :) But I posted a comment on Lysa's blog, so maybe I'll win a makeover and you can change my mind about the purse. We'll see!

ericka said...

How about this: You Can Be Beautiful in 31 Days! Just kidding! I like something like, You Are Beautiful- Now!
