"101 Glam Girl Ways to an Ultra Chic Lifestyle" by Dawn Del Russo

"101 Glam Girl Ways to an Ultra Chic Lifestyle: A CHEEKY POCKET-SIZED BOOK WITH TIDBITS OF ADVICE FOR A GLAMOROUS LIFESTYLE" by Dawn Del Russo is a quick read that is exactly what the cover describes it to be. There are 101 tips, each with its own girly page that pops. There is a title, a picture (illustrated by Barbara Ann Scarrillo), and an adage to boot. There are some quick fashion pointers that relate to must-have accessories, but this isn't a fashion book that tells women how to dress for their body and complexion. Rather, there are pointers for taking care of one's skin and staying in shape. Some hints are for the exterior, and some are for mental / emotional development. For example, tips range from taking a walk to buying a white button down shirt to writing in a journal to taking vitamins and more. The 101 glam tips make sense and come together well. They serve more as reminders than explicit directions since very few words are on each page. Still, readers get the gist. The only thing some conservative readers may not like is the makeup push and the "wear sexy lingerie" tip. Other than those, this book is rather posh. It even arrived in the mail wrapped fastidiously in hot pink tissue paper!
