A great title for what is in fact a practical, sensible and highly informative guide to life, spotted with humour and some charming asides. It’s a great gift for any girl, fun to read and in doing so to pick all sorts of practical information on everything from how to understand politics, send an attachment or buy a house to beauty, dress and style hints. I particularly like the various sections of advice from the famous like Stella McCartney or Kylie Minogue, however it does seem to have some serous gaps, for instance how to look after your shoes!
The perfect cocktail of Swiss Finishing School and DIY manual blended by a girl who knows how to use a screwdriver AND keep her seams straight. From appreciating wine to understanding modern art, placing a bet to playing poker, wearing a hat to finding the mains, changing a tyre to loading an i-pod, HOW TO WALK IN HIGH HEELS helps you navigate life's challenges with style. Camilla has been ably assisted by a host of experts including Vivienne Westwood, Manolo Blahnik and Kylie, who offer tips on everything from the perfect poached egg to looking good in a photo. Funny and informative, packed with great quotes and fascinating facts this will transform your approach to everything from getting dressed to hanging wallpaper. Turn your exasperated aaaaarrrrrghs into confident ahhhhs!
