It's Not About the Clothes

By Luke Reichle

From the style guru behind the fashion on the ABC hit series Castle:

What do you say to yourself when you look in the mirror?

As a species, we have an image problem: When we look in the mirror, we don’t see what’s there. It doesn’t seem to matter if you’re the hottest thing on the red carpet or a hairdresser from Red Hook, the minute we step in front of the mirror, the focus is on “the flaw.”

Glamour is an inside job and you’re never going to feel pretty if every time you look in the mirror you make a slanderous remark about your body. It’s Not About the Clothes gives you a way to navigate through all the voices telling you what’s wrong with your image and sets the stage for your true beauty to shine through.

“I’ve seen enough people in their underwear to start my own country.”

A 25-year veteran of fashion, costume design, and celebrity styling, Luke Reichle takes all the tricks, tips, and fitting room strategies he’s used in more than two decades of making people look good and combines them with a series of internal exercises that will adjust your notions about how you look and forever change the things you say to yourself when you look in the mirror.  

It’s Not About the Clothes connects the attitude of the red carpet with how you think about yourself, bringing confidence and glamour to your daily dressing. This fresh approach to personal style will enable you to eliminate the barrier between you and your inner beauty, and equip you with the “insider” knowledge necessary to re-create yourself in your own image.  

If you’ve never looked in the mirror and made a disparaging remark about your face or body, then this book is not for you.

However, if you can’t see your reflection without engaging in some kind of self-slander, criticizing your body parts, or wondering what life would be like if you looked like him or her, then keep reading. There is a way out of seeing your reflection as something flawed and in need of fixing. The way out is through the inside.
