Good Girls Don’t have to Dress Bad by Shari Braendel arrived at my house a little late from the publisher Zondervan. They provided me this copy free to review. I wasn’t sure I would be able to read and post a review in time for my readers to enter a few of the fun contest that is being held. The book is an easy read, though it is full of information that makes picking out the right clothing and color easy. On her website http://www.sharibraendel.com she even has a fun and easy to do quiz to find the colors that will suit you best. It’s nothing like I’ve ever seen and it is free so go play after you read the review!
It is exciting to see a book on dressing well that addresses the spiritual side. So often as a Christian woman you get the feeling you aren’t supposed to be concerned about how you look. Braendel addresses this issue in a way that makes sense. God isn’t using His words in the Bible to say ignore the things you wear. Not at all. Dressing respectfully and honoring His creation is a good thing.
It’s not a book full of preaching and it’s not meant to be. Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad is what it’s about. Why wear black if it makes you look ten years older? Did you know carrying the wrong color purse can throw a few years on you as well? And just how many clothes do we really need? My closet is stuffed and after reading this book I have an idea of what I need to keep to look professional as well as when I run to Target.
