Not quite right for a fashion newbie.

If you're looking to build your wardrobe and would like a little more detail that what Nina Garcia offers here, I would check out The Pocket Stylist by Kendall Farr.

Nina Garcia tries in this book to lay out some simple, general rules that any woman can following in building and maintaining a wardrobe. At time contradictory (be your own muse, look to others for inspiration), Garcia still manages to boil down fashion into manageable tidbits. You need a LBD, a trenchcoat, a good pair of ballet flats and a good pair of pumps are among what every woman needs.

What I did need were the little tidbits from fashion greats. Yes their advice on their area of expertise (a shoe designer talks about shoes) were useful, but do I really need to know who Michael Kors thinks is an elegant woman? (Spoiler: He says the same as most, a woman who is confident is elegant. So remember that when you are in your dirty jeans covered in baby vomit and cat hair. Wear it with confidence!)
