A Style Guide for Every Woman


In Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad, Shari Braendel teaches you how to appreciate the body God gave you and how to always look your best—from conquering the battle of finding the right swimsuit, to choosing how many bangles you should wear or how big your purse should be, to wearing the right style jeans that will best flatter your thighs or hips, to finding the best places to shop to suit your unique personal style.

Many of us are watching reality TV shows to get a clue on how to dress right and look good. We hungrily purchase fashion magazines any time the cover article has something to do with how we can hide our despised body parts. We make mad dashes to the local department store to pick up the new anti-wrinkle cream Oprah promised will take ten years away from our face.

We care about how we look. Why is that? Because we're women, and women love to look and feel good. God made us that way. And this is not a bad thing. In fact, it's a wonderful thing. God loves beauty. He doesn't want us to reflect his image being sloppy, disheveled women of God who don't pay any attention to what we look like.

Good Girls Don't Have to Dress Bad will show you how to look and feel your best, no matter what day it is or what the occasion. And it will also stop you from screaming at the top of your lungs, 'I have nothing to wear.'


Review: Christian Book Association

"God wants you to know that you are beautiful exactly as you are. You may be a size 6, a size 16, or a size 26...Whatever your size, you are in the body God gave you...and it is good."

What an encouraging message! In this excellent book, Braendel, a Christian image consultant, shows women how to reflect their inner beauty through their outward appearance.

In a friendly, girl-next-door tone, Braendel offers advice on everything from applying makeup to choosing the perfect pair of jeans. Dozens of color photographs of real, non-airbrushed women modeling attractive hairstyles, clothing styles, and even swimsuits will help women practically apply the book's suggestions to their body shape and personal preferences.

This outstanding title deserves a place on every woman's bookshelf. Realistic, informative, and uplifting, it will boost reader's self-image and encourage them to look their best.

“If you’ve ever stood in your closet in tears because you simply had no clue what to wear, this is the book for you.

If you’ve ever headed off to the store only to be completely overwhelmed, this is the book for you. If you’re tired of feeling frumpy, dumpy, and out of style, this is the book for you.

All these things used to be true for me before I applied the truths found in Shari’s book.

She will help you look great by maximizing your good features and minimizing your less-than-favorite ones, and you’ll save money by only buying clothes you’ll feel confidently fantastic wearing.

Every woman should have this invaluable resource!”
