Betty Halbreich was born and raised in Chicago, where she started playing dress-up as soon as she was able to rummage through her mother's closet--and she hasn't stopped experimenting with clothes ever since. In her twenty-plus years as director of Solutions at New York City's Bervgdorf Goodman specialty store, Betty has helped make the world a better-dressed place by working with countless designers and showing generations of women how to create their own style.
Sally Wadyka made her first fashion statement at age six, stubbornly refusing ever to wear a red Lacoste dress. Over the years, her taste has expanded. She has written about fashion and beauty for such magazines as Mademoiselle, Elle, and Self.
