Thank you so much for all the really great comments last week and for letting me know what chapter sounds the most appealing to you. I can't wait for you to read the book and hope you'll let me know what you think when you do. I had a random drawing for the winners and the 3 winners to receive a signed copy of Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad are:

Crystal
and
Ottleo
and
Kimberly Ann

Please email me your mailing address to Shari-P31@earthlink.net so I can send you your book. And Alex, if you're reading this, I misplaced the email you sent me with your mailing address so can you please re-send so I can send you your gift?

Hi Shari- you help me dress, now I am going to help you decorate your home. Come over to see how your book shines and pops on my coffee table. It is the center of attention.

Thanks for doing this post. I remember when I asked you a couple weeks ago this question you told me to put myself as the "celebrity"...

I've always loved Jennifer Aniston. Yay!

Hey Shari,

I purchased your book at my local Borders (Pennsylvania) a few days ago and devoured it (I have four kids so that is no mean feat). I *LOVE* this book. I have read my share of fashion advice so let me tell you what I enjoyed most:

1-clear and to the point
2-you don't attempt exhaustive reviews, but instead focus on the most relevant and useful information
3-you don't ignore or assume away common problems, but address them head on
4-you sort your information into categories, making it easy to find the particular information that *I* need
5-great photos and adorable stylish embellishments
6-great lists of resources and wardrobe essentials
7-comprehensive
8-humorous
9-your heart for women
10-your heart for Jesus!

Here's what frustrated me a bit:
1- pop colors were hard to discern from the description you gave. I would have appreciated some colors printed on the page rather than merely described, e.g., I'm not sure what a "medium shade" would look like.

It was obvious that you have great courage and that it wasn't easy to put this information out there in such an honest way. I myself struggle daily with the issue of where my heart desires intersect with the LORD's, especially in this delicate area of personal appearance and material prosperity. I think you knocked it out of the park because God really wanted this word to go out to his girls, many of whom are really hurting and not reflecting His glory they way we are intended to.

I immediately began to implement your advice and when I came downstairs for church yesterday, my hubby said, "you look great" and my friend said, "you look so pretty". I am a gal who has gained 40 pounds in the last 7 years, so I went from doing some modeling and being highly praised to being completely ignored. As I was reading your opening chapter, tears were just streaming down my face because I realized how much I had just stuffed the hurt away and decided that it was a "sacrifice" I made for the privilege of having my beautiful children. But secretly I was so ashamed and guilty because I really missed that attention and praise!

So I gave myself permission to try to find a new beauty that was deeper and more lasting than the old one, by combining the beauty I have in Christ on the inside with the beauty still to be discovered on my outside.

Love you,
Tracy

I'm CLEAR. Never thought I have something common with Katie Holmes. It's good, she's pretty beautifull.
