Highlights of "Occasion Magic" e-book

The tips and advice in "Occasion Magic" is a nifty reference guide that covers almost every aspect of dressing for the occasion.

Diana starts off by helping you determine the formality of an event, how to read the invitation along with basic guidelines on the appropriate attire for various dress codes. And she further discusses how to look appropriate in various geographical locations.

Here are some of the things that I enjoyed about her e-book:

  • Addresses the importance of correctly assessing the dress code based on the event. Diana gives you advice on how to adjust your outfit to the Levels of Formality, which are basically classifications of a dress code. Examples are: Smart casual, Strictly Formal, etc.
  • Gives advice on how to look appropriate in different parts of the world:
    • The US (Californian's casual business attire is different from the traditional Northeast)
    • Western Europe
    • .. and more!
  • I appreciate her tips on how to read an invitation and how to RSVP
  • The list of dress codes with image examples and attire guidelines. It takes the guess work out of their definition, reducing any anxiety you may have about looking inappropriate
  • Covers a wide range of occasions with fashion advice and guidelines on what to wear for:
    • Child-related activities
    • Two women looking stylish and appropriate for a Cocktail party

      Look & Feel Confident for Any Occasion

    • Cultural events
    • Holidays
    • Parties
    • Recreational activities
    • Religious Ceremonies/Church Functions
    • Seasonal activities
    • Sporting events
    • Miscellanous "serious" stuff such as death and taxes
    • Parties
    • Recreational activities
    • Religious Ceremonies/Church Functions
    • Vacations
    • Weddings/Wedding festivities

    These general occasion categories are again divided by specific events. For example, for Religious Ceremonies Diana gives guidelines on what to wear for a Bar Mitzvah, Baptism, Funeral, etc.

Trends vs Classics

"Occasion Magic" is an extensive and handy reference guide that aids you in giving a fabulous first impression on various occasions and social functions.

If you're worried about looking like an "Outsider" because of your attire then Diana's guidelines will make sure that you'll walk out that door with ease, wearing your outfit with confidence!

You'll discover the basics that give you the groundwork on creating an appropriate attire that projects proper etiquette.

Also, the outfit guidelines for each occasion are time-saving as they give you a solid starting point to work with.

The first part of "Occasion magic" is in my opinion the "meat" of her e-book. In this part of the e-book she explains how to assess what clothing pieces to invest in based on what you need, which is very convenient if you want to save money by buying clothes that suit your lifestyle.

Bonuses included with "Occasion Magic"

  • 1. Occasion Wardrobe Workbook - a 12-pages long pdf file that will help you plan your wardrobe makeover
  • 2. The Travel Planner - helps you take everything you need on your trips
  • 3. The Art of the Schmooze - tips on how to mingle in social functions


The reason I didn't give this e-book a 5-star is only a matter of personal taste and opinion, and that is the pictures and clothing styles she showcased aren't my cup of tea, and look a bit outdated.

Also, it would've been great if she could give some outfit examples or clothing examples for the various occasions.
