In a volume orginally intended just for friends, the author reflects on her fortunes and misfortunes through the clothes she has worn, clothes that have expressed her hopes and dreams--from her Brownie uniform to her first maternity dress.
Ilene Beckerman grew up in Manhattan with her older sister, Blossom (a.k.a. "Tootsie"), and her two best friends, Gay and Dora. In 1973, she made her first mail order purchase--a beige wool pantsuit from the Spiegel catalog--and got her first job. She is now vice-president of an advertising agency.
However, as I began to read, what started out looking like a kid's book took on greater meaning. As a woman, I can recall so many special or not-so-special outfits that I wore. Because of this book, I have begun to look back on those memories and realize how so much was symbolized by my changing attire -- how clothing reflected my changes in life.
As I turned the pages, I felt intimately connected with the author and all that she survived in life. She also gave me a greater insight into myself. Brilliant!
Be aware that this book may not be just what you expect, but once you start reading and looking at the pictures, you will feel quite moved, as I did.
