I'll drink to that

An interesting biography of Betty Halbreich, a legendary head of personal shopping division at the iconic Bergdorf & Goodman New York department store. Working in the industry Betty Halbreigh had an unique opportunity to observe how fashion industry standards and trends changed over the years, moving from the true luxury and top quality garments made by designers truly understanding female body to instant fashion made in the Third World in sizes notoriously too small to accommodate for needs of an average woman. But more than anything else “I’ll drink to that” is a story of a woman who into her forties and after a painful separation from her husband had to leave her privileged ways, learning how to be on her own, how to overcome shyness and modesty, making a living and opening a new chapter of her life, being independent for the first time ever. Very inspirational, very daring and great to read.
