All's Fair in Love & Wardrobe by Stephanie Simons | A Book Review

Stephanie Simons All's Fair in Love and Wardrobe


So I’m sitting here writing this amazing review (well I don’t know if the review is amazing, but the book sure is) on a completely fabulous book in one of the least fabulous places... the Laundromat. I was contacted by the amazing Stephanie Simons and asked if I wouldn’t mind reading and possibly reviewing her new book All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe. Stephanie's work has been featured in Cosmo, InStyle, US Weekly, & ELLE. She's basically Carrie Bradshaw 2.0, and Manolo Blahnik himself seems to agree with that statement as well! Stephanie was also on The Bachelor, and countless pageants so needless to say I was thrilled over the moon when I got this amazing opportunity! Ever since I could read and write I've been writing stories. When I was young random people who met me would tell me that one day I'd be a writer. My passion for reading and writing has never left me and I just want my readers to know how much I appreciate them for allowing me to have a small platform to share my own thoughts and opinions. 

I know this isn’t typically the kind of material I post, but I believe that it is definitely relevant to my readers. Most of us are girls women in our twenties (or that’s how I picture us, of course there are older and younger bloggers whom I ADORE). And with this glorious age of finding ourselves, our passions, and our significant others, a book like All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe is just what we need to lighten things up a bit.

I would like to preface any further information with the fact that this book is not only eloquently written, but also beautifully illustrated. The obviously talented Malia Carter makes reading a book seem like you’re entering into an enchanting world of pastels and designer dressing rooms. So if sitting down and reading a 336 page book doesn’t seem like your cup of tea please don’t judge a book by it’s cover (ha-ha look at me being so punny, that is a pun isn’t it? Maybe just irony?! Who even let this girl write a blog in the first place?!).

Reading All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe was comparable to having a conversation with a fashion editor. Written in the form of rules, this book covers everything from how to date, who to date, and how amazing women are in general. I know exactly how disheartening it can be for us single girls today. You go out on so many bad dates, or you just plain old can’t find someone who gives you goose bumps. But please, don’t give up! Somewhere out there is a guy just as amazing as this year’s fashion week.

Rule 53 is actually something that I feel like a ton of women my age struggle with. Of course deep down you are really happy for your friends and you want nothing but the best for them. The fact that they have finally found that amazing guy who opens doors, cooks, and actually cares about their feelings gives you hope. But at the same time it is also disheartening, questions start to flash through your mind like; is she better than me? Is she a nicer person? What is she doing that I’m not? And trust me these can go on for days. But you have to have faith in your own path. And know that sometime (soon I’m sure) you will find a guy who is perfect for you and in the meantime try to be genuinely happy for your friends and peers because one day they may be in the same shoes you’re in and I’m sure you’ll want them to be a little jealous happy.

One of my favourite things about this book is that I feel like it was personally written for me. And as amazing as I am I know that it wasn’t and that a lot of us are just going through the same crap. Now you may not pen a million dollar album or book out of your breakup (although I have total faith that you could), try to take solace in the fact that hundreds of thousands (maybe even millions) of your sisters are going through the same stuff that you are and this community will always be here to support you and help you get through those rough breakups, lonely nights, and dateless Fridays.

If you enjoy flawless pictures, witty banter and topics that will have you feeling like you’re chatting with your blatantly honest best friend, then I suggest you go get yourself a copy of All’s Fair in Love & Wardrobe available here at Barnes & Noble and here on Amazon!
