Every well-dressed woman should have three things: a great black dress, real pearls, and a copy of Obsessed by Dress. –Ilene Beckerman, author of Love, Loss, and What I Wore

“Finally! A book with almost enough about outfits.” –Cynthia Heimel, author of Sex Tips for Girls

“Fashion is fascinating and annoying to me: art or craft? crucial or frivolous? shallow or deep? I don’t know. The people quoted in this book are engaged in this debate. By establishing a dialogue between smart and interesting people from across time, Ms. Tobias stimulates and provokes.” –Mark Morris, choreographer, Mark Morris Dance Group

“Tobias takes us on a quirky journey through a delightful array of quotes. The unifying theme of fashion is grounded by matter-of-fact statements from authors and other infamous characters. Everyone is an expert.” –Myra Walker, curator, Costume Institute, Metropolitan Museum of Art

“Absolutely fabulous quotes.” –Valerie Steele, author of Fifty Years of Fashion: New Look to Now
