In What I Wore, named after her enormously popular blog, Jessica shares recipes for creating a stellar wardrobe to get you through spring, summer, fall, and winter. From delicates (bras, slips, lingerie) to the basics every woman should have (black pants, white shirts, knee-high leather boots) to the dramatic touches that set just the right tone (scarves, jewelry, handbags), she shows you how to take your look from ordinary to outstanding without breaking the bank. Inside you’ll discover how to • remix the clothing you already have for dozens of fresh, pulled-together looks • become a smarter shopper and always get the most bang for your buck • create wow-worthy ensembles for special occasions, weekends, and the office • supplement basics and investment pieces with fun and inexpensive accessories Plus you’ll learn tailoring tricks, handy hints, and packing tips to ensure that you always leave the house looking your best.

I liked the way the author showed the reader how to make the best use of what they already have. Granted, that involves owning useful pieces, but she offers tips on how to find those too.

Very helpful, especially loved the focus on versatile pieces that can carry over to multiple seasons!

Meh, mostly drawings and very few pictures.

I own this book and follow her blog by the same name and I think it's fabulous! It is a creative, practical and very informative book that applies to a variety of ages and shapes and sizes.
Her photos are of what she wears everyday and it's great source for inspiration.

For those of us who are fashioned challenged, it can be difficult to figure out what to wear every morning. Jessica Quirk has put together a handbook about building outfits. Her rules are simple: 1) Have a good set of foundation pieces based on one neutral colour and a solid colour that works on you. 2) Add in some seasonal pieces to refresh the looks. And 3) buy nothing unless it works with three other pieces in your closet.

Quirk then goes on to lay out how to do this, with examples from a mythical closet. This is a good book to buy and keep in your purse when you shop. Or maybe as an app on your smartphone?
