Release date 10/2/12. I am 1 of 8 featured in the book for style issues. Since my double mastectomy and my weight gain from treatment I really had a problem finding tops. I was picked for Stacy's book and if I can help 1 person out there then i will be happy. I will be a 2 year survivor in September 2012. Something good has come out of something bad. Book can be preordered at Amazon or Barns and Noble. Let me know what you think! God Bless!

jan, I confess I haven't gotten around to getting that book again from the library...so I'm gonna place a hold on it right now....glad you posted because I have thought about it ocassionally.

And, the news is that 'What Not To Wear' is in its last season CryCryCry, major sadness!  Their last episodes will be airing in July.  Well, I knew the day would probably come; I'll miss them, but have enjoyed every single one of thei shows.

Yes I also enjoyed their show and Stacy London is actually a wonderful person. She really is clever and has a wonderful wit about her. I, too, will miss their show. I did get a lot of great tips from them.

Jan, I just got the book again from the library and reread with interest the chapter about you.  It was wonderful and inspiring. It is so nice to learn more about you!  Your "after" look is really quite stunning. I think i'm built something like you (I almost always wear 'v' neck shirts), I'm in my mid-50s, short, with some extra weight gain from anti-hormonals. I don't own a dress, so I sort of studied your blue dress to see if maybe I can find something like it for Easter. Have you been able to apply the dressing principles to your every day life?  Best wishes.  ~Mrs. M.

Thanks! With my weight gain (30 lbs) from the tamoxifen (and I walk 5 k, go to gym) can't lose anything - it's very difficult to find clothes that I think I look good in, but I have bought some dresses. I work from home so I do t have a big need to wear them. I found the Jessica Howard petite dresses in Dillards and I've had good luck with them. I'm sure you can find something. That dress was a Calvin Klein dress. It's still in my closet. You couldn't see it but it was very big on me and was pinned all the way down the back. Ahh, the magic of photo shoots. LOL
Check out my FB page - "The Pleasure Island Day of Hope." My friend and I founded that last year and this year we are having a beach walk. W

Keep in touch!
