NATALIE JOBITY, is the author of the Amazon bestseller Frumpy to Fabulous: Flaunting It. Your Ultimate Guide to Effortless Style. The book was released in August 2010 and has consistently been top 10 in the Beauty and Fashion category, dominating the #1 spot for weeks on end. The Kindle version of the book ranked as high as #375 of all paid Kindle books (over a million) on Amazon in March 2012—over a year after the book’s release.
Natalie updated Frumpy to Fabulous: Flaunting It. Your Ultimate Guide to Effortless Style in Fall 2011 with a Revised Edition. She also introduced an Abridged edition of her book in January 2012 that focuses on the chapters related for workplace dressing. For Natalie it is always important that her book is accessible at a variety of mediums and price points. The Paperback is currently for sale on Amazon for $16.20, the Kindle version for $7.99 and the Abridged Edition for $1.77. At over 100 pages, The Abridged Edition easily has as much, if not, more content and tips than comparable books that sell at a higher price point with shorter page counts and without illustrations.
Regarding her reason for writing the book Natalie shares, “Frumpy to Fabulous: Flaunting It. Your Ultimate Guide to Effortless Style is for any and every woman who has ever desired to consistently look her best, understand her signature style, learn how to shop smarter and to build a wardrobe filled with clothing that flatters her and that she absolutely loves. This book is as much about style, fashion, what to wear and beauty as it is about self-esteem, empowerment and motivation. It is my honor to have penned a book that I believe truly can and will make a difference outwardly as well as inwardly in the lives of its readers.” As proof, the book ranks well in the self-esteem category as well. Natalie continues, “This book is as much about fashion and style as it is about motivating women to dare to give themselves permission to Flaunt It, by getting out of their own way and embracing what makes them uniquely fabulous. My wish is that as women we continue to elevate, uplift and inspire each other.”
