9780451229175: Bitches on a Budget: Sage Advice for Surviving Tough Times in Style

A witty, recession-era guide to being thrifty while not forgoing the fabulous.

Today's woman may have a dwindling stock portfolio, but that shouldn't make her bite one well-manicured nail with worry. Rosalyn Hoffman dishes up the wisdom women need to get perfect style without busting what's left of their bank accounts.

The author is a recession-era fashion guru, travel agent, grooming consultant, therapist, sommelier, and life coach all rolled into one, and with this book vows no coupon clipping, Prada depriving, carb hating allowed. Because it doesn't take oodles of moola to live well- and that's one trend that will never go out of style.

About the Author:

Rosalyn Hoffman, author of Smart Mamas, Smart Money: Raising Happy, Healthy Kids Without Breaking the Bank, is a former buyer for Bonwit Teller, Filene's, and Lord & Taylor in New York. She has also been a marketing manager for Avon and Lilian Vernon. She lives in Massachusetts.

From Publishers Weekly:

The book melds two fads: Deal with having less during the recession, and the Girl, get a clue! category popularized by books like He's Just Not That into You. A former department store buyer and marketing executive, Hoffman echoes the often trotted-out advice that women should invest in a few quality items they'll enjoy wearing, looking at or using for years to come, and cut back on everything else. Much of her suggestions are obvious—shop at cheaper retail stores, for example, or get haircuts less often. Rather than being about saving money, the book is about spending it—the Hoffman way. This contradiction aside, a sassy tone and abundant—if not always successful—ribald jokes make frugality seem fun. (Jan.)
