How to Dress for Success by Edith Head, Joe Hyams

Would you like to look younger, prettier, slimmer? Would you like to attract a new man, hold on to the current one? Would you like to get a better job, earn more money? Would you like your husband to move up the ladder of success, attract more friends? Then this is your book. Edith Head, Hollywood designer to the stars, offers no-nonsense, and often hilarious, fashion advice straight from the 1960s. There is still much to learn today from Head's witty style tips and delightful drawings.
