I started this book ages ago and just couldn't get into it. I saw it again and decided to try it again because I was curious to see how it ended. It is very interesting to hear about Betty Halbreich's life, however it is definitely one of extreme privilege. This woman knows her clothes, and knows her styles and it was an interesting read.

Sometimes repetitive but a generally good read about a woman, her life and how she parlayed her fashion sense into an interesting career.

Betty Halbreich's autobiography is quite an experience: photos would've been great - The slideshow accompanying this Vanity Fair article is worth a look: http://www.vanityfair.com/culture/2014/09/betty-halbreich-bergdorf-goodman-I-ll-drink-to-that-interview - and so is this Daily Mail article, for photos of Betty in her wedding dress: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/you/article-2511290/Meet-Betty-Halbreich-fashion-fixer-fifth-avenue.html

From a lonely child who used her mother's closet as a playground, to a young wife and mother struggling with a tumultuous marriage, Betty Halbreich recounts the path she took to become a legendary personal shopper and fashion maven at Bergdorf Goodman. Halbreich paints a vivid portrait of her past and will make readers believe in the power of beautiful clothing.

A tedious read that would only be of interest to people who populate Betty's small world in New York City. If you are looking for interesting encounters with well-known people, you will not find them here. Betty is far too circumspect for that!!
