As far as body image, rather than helping to create acceptance, I see a whole lot of made up body issues and silly wardrobe challenges that few women actually have.
This is probably the least helpful style guide I've ever read.
Honestly, I had some fun answering the questions in the first part of the book, but the second part was all about what to wear to accentuate or minimize different body parts, which seemed sad to me rather than enlightening. Because I was so eager to experiment, I tried some of Sal's suggestions anyway and spent about a year wearing A-line skirts, waist belts, and bright colors. In the end, I realized I didn't like dressing that way at all, but I do think the experimentation helped me work out my style, even though it was in a roundabout way.
Since reading "Already Pretty," I've found some other resources I would recommend instead. Free blog series: Coletterie's "Wardrobe Architect" (intended for people who sew but useful for those who don't too), Putting Me Together's "Building a Remixable Wardrobe." Books: "Women in Clothes" (not a style guide, but a great window into other women's thoughts on dressing themselves), any of the "What Not to Wear" book (though they should be taken with a grain of salt—but then all of these things should be). And you should probably also read the Recovering Shopaholic blog, just to keep it all in check!
