Holiday Gift-Terrific: Closet Confidential (Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way)

Fashion bloggers like Winona Dimeo-Ediger make me feel seriously inadequate. You see, now only does Winona pen the hilariously funny Daddy Likey, but she's also now a published author and (dare I say it) style expert.

Dimeo-Ediger's new book, Closet Confidential (Style Secrets Learned the Hard Way), is quirky, wise and hilarious - in short, the perfect pressie for a fashion lover OR style novice on your list.  Here are just a few gems of  Winona-wisdom:

  • "Premium jeans are quite wonderful, but they're not more wonderful than food, shelter and a good credit rating." Indeed, Winona, indeed.
  • "Put on a wrap shirt, especially a sheer cashmere wrap shirt, and you'll feel like a ballerina. This is the shirt of lost childhood dreams."
  • "To paraphrase a line from Fight Club, the first rule of having boobs is: get a bra fitting."

Of course, Winona goes into much greater detail in the book, with chapters to devoted to each category of wardrobe essential - bags, shoes, jeans and beyond.  I collect style books and must admit, this is a new favorite. To snag a copy, visit
