When to shop

Are you a fashionista who would love a few insider tips on getting the best selection and lowest prices on the season's must-have items?

A new book might be just the fashion accessory you need.

Fashion and style writer Susan Redstone (In Style, Marie Claire and The New York Times) has written "Just Try It On! A Month by Month Guide to Shopping and Style" (Citadel Press, $15.95).

Redstone dishes on when and how to get the best pieces for the best prices, including an annual merchandising schedule and sections on fashion emergency kits, when to buy budget and tips on apparel care. The book is available at local bookstores, including Barnes & Noble Booksellers and Borders Books & Music.
