Wear This Toss That

"It costs us not to look our best. That's the premise of my fashion philosophy. Why? Because when we don't dress well it costs us job opportunities, positives first impressions, respect, confidence, self-worth and dollars...lots of dollars."

That’s why Amy wrote WEAR THIS, TOSS THAT!: Hundreds of Fashion and Beauty Swaps That Save Your Looks, Save Your Budget, and Save You Time (Atria Books; $27.00). “The bottom line,” she says, “is that we all need to look good, all the time, and I decided to make it my mission to help women regain control of their closets by simplifying their choices.”

With a snappy presentation, engaging information and an empowering message for women of all ages, sizes or lifestyles—WEAR THIS, TOSS THAT! is the quintessential guide for women who want to shake off wardrobe blahs.

In WEAR THIS, TOSS THAT! Amy shows you how to sort through the clothes you already have and take inventory of what you need. Cleverly organized like a woman’s closet, WEAR THIS, TOSS THAT! outlines the 30 pieces of clothing and 30 accessories every woman must have, and then goes through the closet—rack by rack, shelf by shelf and drawer by drawer—helping readers determine what to wear and what to toss. The second half of the book heads over to the bathroom to review skincare, makeup and hair care, because, as Amy claims, “a cleaned-up beauty routine is the essential finishing touch to your look.”

WEAR THIS, TOSS THAT! is a reference book to be used on a regular basis, and Amy has included plenty of fun facts, product picks, savvy tricks and insider information—like tailoring tips and shapewear suggestions for making each piece of clothing fit perfectly. She also highlights 24 “save-me” items, like the wrap shirt, Spanx tight-end tights and removable heel protectors, that are guaranteed to keep women fashionably afloat, and includes an extensive savvy shopping list of resources complete with Web site addresses.

“As busy, multi-tasking women, we don’t have complete control over every part of our lives—work, relationships, obligations, expectations,” she says. “Being able to reach into your closet every morning and emerge with options you love is liberating. It means that you have conquered this corner of your world, saving you time and money.”

It débuted on Today and became the number one fashion book on Available at book retailers nationwide.
