Personal style expert Jessica Quirk approaches getting dressed just as you would plan the perfect meal: With a smartly stocked pantry and a few gorgeous "spotlight ingredients," inspiration comes easily.

In What I Wore, named after her enormously popular blog, Jessica shares recipes for creating a stellar wardrobe to get you through spring, summer, fall, and winter. From delicates (bras, slips, lingerie) to the basics every woman should have (black pants, white shirts, knee-high leather boots) to the dramatic touches that set just the right tone (scarves, jewelry, handbags), she shows you how to take your look from ordinary to outstanding without breaking the bank. Inside you'll discover how to
* remix the clothing you already have for dozens of fresh, pulled-together looks
* become a smarter shopper and always get the most bang for your buck
* create wow-worthy ensembles for special occasions, weekends, and the office
* supplement basics and investment pieces with fun and inexpensive accessories
Plus you'll learn tailoring tricks, handy hints, and packing tips to ensure that you always leave the house looking your best.
