Good Girls Don’t Have to Dress Bad Review {and GIVEAWAY} — 32 Comments

  1. My style is sadly predictable — jeans, tank with a long-sleeved {or short-sleeved, depending on temp} shirt layered over and black tennies. B-O-R-I-N-G! =)

  2. My style… I tend to color block a lot, but I’m not afraid to mix it up with some stripes, patterns or florals. Buying for outfits instead of pieces is a problem. My outfits also tend to fall apart at the shoes.

  3. My style is kinda non existant right now but I WISH my style was fun, girly and colorful!

  4. My style would probably be defined as modern modest. But I do enjoy old-fashioned clothing alot. I strive to be modestly feminine and glorify God with my wardrobe choices. Thank you for having this giveaway! I am sure it will be a blessing to whomever wins! Blessings! ~Jordan

    • Thanks for coming by! I think there’s such a gray area with HOW important your clothing/style choices should be in your life. This book really helped me put some perspective on yes it DOES matter, but not TOO much, and definitely needs to be modest.

  5. I don’t really know how to define my style. I wear a lot of hand me downs from my sisters and stuff from like 10 years ago. I seriously need to update my wardrobe but shopping intimidates me. Maybe this book would help me feel more confident in my ability to pick the right clothes for me.

    • I have a bad habit of buying something because it’s cute and it’s a great price (I’m a clearance rack girl!)–but neither of those have anything to do with how it might look ON ME! But now I ask myself, is this something that will look GREAT on me? I actually have a little list of “pieces” that I’m looking for (like ivory cardigan) if I’m out and if it’s not on my list I don’t get it. It’s helped a lot!

  6. My style… hmmm…. practical, yet feminine. I love long ruffly skirts. I think I could learn a lot from this book!

    • That “practical” part was how I ended up in jeans and tee-shirts all. the. time. Now I have a couple pairs of “work” jeans, and then two pairs of nice jeans. And I use aprons if I’m wearing nice clothes or a skirt. I find that long skirts are actually just as easy to work in around the house and yard as jeans anyway. Short skirts are a whole different matter though, so I don’t really have any. 🙂

  7. Style? Hah. I guess my style is skirt/jeans with a shirt layered with a shrug. I do love ruffles and scarves……

    Such a fun giveaway!!

  8. I definitely need help with style as you could tell at the conference! LOL My style is comfy. I just like to be comfortable. 🙂

    • LOL! Me too! My husband opened the book and said “Where’s the chapter on picking out flannel pajama pants?” {grin}

    • Cheap was a big deal for me too. I’m a clearance rack/thrift store shopper! Some of her suggestions for where to shop were quite out of my regular price range! But I have found that I can focus on those brands while hitting my thrift stores and have had some success that way!

  9. I have a difficult time finding patterns that fit my awkward shape, so I often stick to single colors and simple lines – nothing too fancy! I have an idea of what I *think* I can wear, but I’m often too shy to try it…I’m normally fairly conservative in my clothing choices 🙂
    I’d love to read this book! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win it as a give-away!

    • I have definitely stepped out of my box a few times since reading it, but it also just helped me define the box that I’m comfortable in and make good choices inside my box. 🙂

  10. I would love to win a copy of this book! I’ve tried different styles at different times in my life. Currently I keep it super casual for everyday and slightly bohemian when I dress up!

    • Bohemian–that’s the perfect word for my sister! We were chatting and I couldn’t quite put my finger on her style, but that would be it! 🙂

  11. My style is so several seasons ago and very casual. I need to be on an episode of what not to wear. I’m still wearing pants from 4 years ago, but hopefully they’re classics. Interesting what you said about trying different colors. Until a friend of mine took me shopping, I never would have thought about wearing brown, but I love it.

    • Well, I used to get compliments for wearing very vibrant colors and I was surprised that she recommended against that for me at first–but someone pointed out that as I’ve gotten older (and had children!) my skin coloring and especially my hair have changed a lot. I still don’t really think yellow works for me, but I’ve tried several other suggestions and liked how it turned out.

  12. hhmmmm, style? what is that exactly? I have turned into anything comfortable style. I think I could really benefit from this book, as would my teenage daughter… don’t tweet so this is it. Thanks Jamie for the opportunity!

    • She did identify two “styles” that aren’t styles–which were both sort of me. I love the fact that she said if you don’t think you have a style, just PICK ONE and go with it from here out. 🙂

  13. I would define my style as anything that kid smears, baby spits, and gardening leftovers don’t show up on.

  14. This book looks fabulous. I get overwhelmed by too many choices! I like simple and my style reflects that.

    • Yes, I love that this book is pretty much nothing about “trends.” It’s about basics and how to make basics work for you.
