I don’t review products or books on my blog very often, but occasionally I come across something I can’t help but share. That’s exactly how I feel about these two books. Since Christmas is right around the corner I thought I’d mention them now so you can purchase a few copies as gifts or put one on your own wish list.
I purchased two copies of this book while I was at She Speaks this year—one for me and one for my fashion savvy friend Alicia. This book is the Christian woman’s pocket guide to all things fashion related. Shari starts by helping you identify your body type and color palette and then teaches you to embrace (and build) your own style from there. She covers everything from how to find a flattering pair of jeans and accessorize any outfit correctly to the right makeup colors and hairstyles for your skin tone and face shape.
A few weeks ago I started following her advice and I’ve received more compliments, felt more put together and have even learned to embrace parts of my body I used to hate.
On Thanksgiving all of my female relatives and I were pouring over these pages marveling at how simple some of the fixes were to fashion disasters we’d experienced.
My copy is all marked up and will be coming with me on my next trip to the mall.
This book is a fun tool for the junior fashionista on your shopping list. Aimed at girls 8-12, Sherry fills this book with fun tips on both inner and outer beauty.
Each chapter also includes a craft for girls to make—glitter nail polish, a jute belt, a headband, etc…
Filled with fun quizzes, this book will instill confidence in any girl who wants to feel beautiful. Sherry fills this book with great ways for girls to build their inner beauty so their outer beauty can shine.
I gave a copy to my 10-year-old niece and the first words out of her mouth as she flipped through it were, “Wow! I love stuff like this.
Filled with Bible verses and plenty of conversation starters, this would be a great book for moms and daughters (or big sisters and little sisters) to go through together.
**Both books emphasize the fact that true beauty comes from the inside out, but also teach girls and women how to be modest, fashionable and confident in who God made them. I highly recommend both books as Christmas gifts–or for yourself.
