Advice to help my lady friend learn to dress more like a woman?

My lady friend recently lamented how she feels largely at a loss "dressing like a woman". Outside of work she's usually in jeans and and t-shirts, the latter most often being the kind you find from Threadless or similar. She doesn't feel very comfortable in more feminine clothing largely because she admits she doesn't really feel like she knows how to dress. I'm guessing this is something she never learned as she was growing up. She wants to learn, but I think she finds it a pretty daunting task.
It's possible I'm sticking my nose where it doesn't belong, but I was hoping I could find some recommendations on how she could work on this. As a man, I know of books like the ones by Alan Flusser and blogs such as Put This On. Are there similar quality sources for women? It seems that there are a lot of bad ones out there (so many horrible magazines).
What are good sources to help her in this learning process? Are there consultants for this sort of thing (we live in the DC metro area)?
Thank you for any help.
