Good Girls Don't Have To Dress Bad: A New Book By Shari Braendel

How many times have you stood in front of an your closet, doors flung wide open, and exclaimed " I have nothing to wear!".  In my world this occurs on an almost daily basis.  So many of the fashion how-to books that are available seem to talk to the "less-then average" woman" with an open charge card and a killer body.

In Good Girls Don't Have To Dress Bad by Shari Braendal the average woman now has just as good as a chance to really look their best!   She tackles everything from underwear to accessories to haircuts in a way that is easy to read and understand and just makes perfect sense! 

From her website:

"In Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad, Shari Braendel teaches you how to appreciate the body God gave you and how to always look your best—from conquering the battle of finding the right swimsuit, to choosing how many bangles you should wear or how big your purse should be, to wearing the right style jeans that will best flatter your thighs or hips, to finding the best places to shop to suit your unique personal style.

Many of us are watching reality TV shows to get a clue on how to dress right and look good. We hungrily purchase fashion magazines any time the cover article has something to do with how we can hide our despised body parts. We make mad dashes to the local department store to pick up the new anti-wrinkle cream Oprah promised will take ten years away from our face.

We care about how we look. Why is that? Because we’re women, and women love to look and feel good. God made us that way. And this is not a bad thing. In fact, it’s a wonderful thing. God loves beauty. He doesn’t want us to reflect his image being sloppy, disheveled women of God who don’t pay any attention to what we look like.

Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad will show you how to look and feel your best, no matter what day it is or what the occasion. And it will also stop you from screaming at the top of your lungs, “I have nothing to wear.”

Both the book and the website have alot of great tools to assist you in looking your best - from the color analysis on the website to the 16 point accessory rule list in the book Shari gives you tons of ways to ensure that you look your best in the most tasteful of ways!

I will note that Shari Braendel is a faith based writer but the writing is not heavy handed and the book crosses all religious boundaries.  Her faith based writing really addresses the respect we all need to have for our bodies and having that respect is where it all needs to start!
