In this book you'll learn all her secrets for changing clothes that are so yesterday into clothes that are so today.

And the amazing Azadeh Houshyar makes it all look so simple with her fun pics!

(Psst. It is.)

By the end of this book, you'll have a closet full of stuff that's all you: inspired by you, made by you, and cool like you. And you'll have a load of friends dying to have you teach them how you did it!
