Target Underwear and A Vera Wang Gown
Notes From A Single Girl's ClosetBook - 2006
The story of a young womans life, one outfit at a time.Tucked inside the fibers and buttons and pockets of the clothing in our closets are the stories of our lives, the lessons weve learned, the people weve loved. Like so many of us, Adena Halpern has used clothes to conform, to seduce, to console, to show off, and to hide. Her ability to relate fashion to her inner lifein a way that is about so much more than just the clotheshas endeared her to many readers, one of whom called her the real-life Carrie Bradshaw.But fashionista, shes not. Adena is: every teenage girl who had to have what all the other girls had, whether it looked good on her or not; the college coed who swooned for the boy in the leather jacket; the heartbroken young woman who chose a rebound dress over a rebound man; the woman who is forty-five minutes late to work because she has a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear. She is a lover of clothes and shopping whose passionate memories are always tied to not only the clothes that she wore, but to what everyone else was wearing, too. This is the affectionate and funny story of Adenas life, an unconventional love story that readers will want to share. You will never look at your own wardrobe the same way again. BACKCOVER: "Reading Adenas story made me want to throw open the doors of my closet and hear the stories my own clothes have to tellfrom my first Galliano gown, to a pair of Earth shoes that I wore in eighth grade with a pair of Calvin Klein jeans. This book reassures the girl in each of us that shes not alone in her search for the perfect outfit and the confidence that, we hope and pray, comes along with it." Cindy Crawford You'll fall in love with Adena, her mother, her family, and her friends. I did. Though she can't control her life or lovelife (who can?), she can control her closet and her spirit shines through that closet. Ilene Beckerman, author of Love, Loss and What I Wore and Makeovers at the Beauty Counter of Happiness For years, Ive been looking for someone to write about shopping in a funny, smart, modern way. And Ive found her... a girl after our own high-heeled hearts. Lesley Jane Seymour, Editor In Chief, Marie Claire
