Review:

Meet Betty Halbreich, fashion fixer of Fifth Avenue ( Daily Mail)

Sartorial style becomes a philosophy of life in this spirited memoir ... Halbreich comes across as sage and gracious as she narrates a life full of incident, taking us inside the fashion industry and one of its great institutions ( Publisher's Weekly)

In this superbly entertaining, surprisingly poignant memoir, Halbreich proves that fashion is about so much more than clothes: it's a reflection of personal identity and self-worth, whether you buy your outfits at Walmart or Bergdorf ( BookPage)

Halbreich has much wisdom to impart in I'll Drink to That ( Independent)

From the Publisher:

Betty Halbreich is a true original. Now in her eighties, she has spent nearly forty years at the luxury store Bergdorf Goodman, working with socialites, stars and ordinary women. She has led many to appreciate their real selves through clothes, frank advice and her unique brand of wisdom; she is trusted by the most discriminating persons - including Hollywood's top stylists - to tell them what looks best. But her own transformation from cosseted girl to fearless truth-teller is the greatest makeover of all.

Born into a successful Chicago family, aged twenty Betty married dashing Sonny Halbreich and came to Manhattan, where the couple threw themselves into a whirlwind of long hours, cocktails and Park Avenue parties, living the high life in 1950s New York. However, the marriage began to fray and after two decades came undone completely. Bereft, Betty attempted suicide. As she embarked on the frightening process of reclaiming herself, she was offered a lifeline: a job at Bergdorf Goodman. For Betty, with her innate sense of style and craftsmanship, it was a perfect fit.

Hardworking, elegant, and gifted with sparkling wit and razor-sharp powers of observation, in her amazing life story as in her style guidance Betty Halbreich is never afraid to tell it straight.
