I'm someone who absolutely loves all kinds of fashion books, and I am always reading a fashion book. I want to share my knowledge on these books, no matter if they are photography books, books on designers, books with outfits or fashion sketches in them, or any other type of books on fashion. So read my reviews and feel welcome to give me tips on other good fashion books that I have not read yet!

I must admit I haven't really been tempted to try anything similar myself, but I still wanted to know what that must be like, so I decided to read this book, which wasn't really only about swearing off beauty items, but also fashion, accessories and such, so it turned out to be a much bigger process for Mrs. Baker Hyde than I thought at first.
But I actually didn't get the feeling that Phoebe Baker Hyde wanted to convince others to go through the same process as she did, more that she wanted to describe what it was like for her. And I think she did a marvelous job at that!
In my opinion the book is not as on topic as you might have expected, given the topic of it, but I actually thought that was a good thing, since I liked the personal anecdotes and "off topic" stories quite a lot too.
