Boycology: The Modern Guide on Dating in Style

All's Fair In Love And Wardrobe Book Review

I have a truly wonderful occasion to update you about. I must tell you about a book that I’ve been going back and forth to within the last couple of months. Do not worry about my reading speed, dear readers; I could finish a book in a couple of evenings. However, the recent book by Stephanie Simons called All’s Fair In Love And Wardrobe is so good that I couldn’t move it away to the book shelf for a long period of time and kept re-reading various chapters.

All's Fair In Love And Wardrobe Book Review

Think about your favorite chic-flick movie that makes you laugh every time you watch it, add some awesome illustrations that you can see in the best glossy magazines around, and add some Urban Dictionary flair on top—I believe that Stephanie’s book is awesome. It is funny, beautifully illustrated, and it provides you with some great dating & style ideas that you could not find anywhere else.

Recall all these OOTDs, OMGs, and LBDs that you are using on a daily basis. Usually, we have no idea where these useful acronyms come from, but in the case with Stephanie’s neologisms it is not the case. The author uses such colorful vocabulary that you could easily consider All’s Fair In Love And Wardrobe as your guide to modern (and stylish) American language. As a non-native English speaker, I truly appreciate the opportunity not only to read the book, but also to obtain a better understanding of linguistic structures and to learn some new cool terms.

In her book, Stephanie covers two very closely related topics, fashion and dating. However, in her writing Stephanie goes much deeper than just covering women’s trivial indecisiveness about which outfit to pick for the date. She claims that men could be understood and through fashion terminology. I truly enjoyed (and actually read over and over again) the chapter of the book entitled Boycology where Stephanie provides her smart and hilarious observations about the “sterner sex” and their habits.

All's Fair In Love And Wardrobe Book Review I would say, All’s Fair In Love And Wardrobe is written in the best traditions of Bridget Jones’s Diary and The Devil Wears Prada.  The format of the book—short sarcastic essays and supporting illustrations created by the talented Malia Carter—makes this book a perfect holidays gift that people will definitely keep on their coffee table for many years to come.
