Overall I give it two stars, though 2.
Much of the advice is common sense, but there are definitely some helpful new tidbits I’ll have to remember, like that cut flower arrangements go in tepid not cold water, and that lemon juice or stainless steel can get the smell of freshly prepared garlic off your hands. How many drinks are you serving??? I found it incredibly helpful since I don’t drink much and wine not at all. Clinton Kelly won’t just revamp your wardrobe — he’ll revamp your life!
Love What Not to Wear. Nov 10, Claire rated it liked it. Good hostess gift suggestions: I recommend it as a good light read. Of course, the keys to being better than everyone else aren’t always so obvious.

He never talks at you or over you – his voice is approachable and he phrases his rules so they can be easily remembered. However, this would make a useful graduation or housewarming gift for young fabulouz who may have little experience with how to act appropriately in a job interview, dress for a wedding, or be a thoughtful weekend guest.
Some of the fashion stuff on dressing shapes and sleeve lengths were interesting. The book is a feast for the eyes.
I wish I would have bought this fabylous instead of Stacy’s new one. My body figure works well with items that emphasis the waist line, such as wrap dresses and faux-wrap tops. And no one even brought me a bottle of wine for a gift, the losers. There’s a 30 page how to eat section drink is separate and then another 43 pages of hors d’oeuvres in the entertaining section.
Imagine his large black lacquered deer antler chandelier. But fabulousness doesn’t stop with style. I really enjoyed reading this book. How can he ask a 9 month pregnant woman how she slept? I liked some klely of this book much better than others. My husband stayed in bed until about nine.
I need to get better about picking and arranging my own bouquets in the summer. I found FF on a Budget to be a little better because, let’s face it – w Very light.
Preview — Freakin’ Fabulous by Clinton Kelly. A huge chunk of the book is devoted to his favorite frrakin. I am not one of his fans, but also do not hold that against his book.
I finished this book last night in my closet at 2: Anyway, it’s basically a big, easy-to-read magazine. No trivia or quizzes yet. I went in there to get down on all fours and stick my butt in the air, the only way I could force this soon to be born baby with the power of gravity off of a giant nerve ending in my crotch.
He is using a voice that is so not the g-rated one he uses for television. Feb 03, Erin rated it it was amazing. I did appreciate his really short intro to wine. The section on cooking was fun, though, since I am a vegetaria I love What Not to Wear and, honestly, was expecting this book to be a lot like the show–minus Stacy–and similar to the other What Not to Wear books that are out there. The section on cooking was fun, though, since I am a vegetarian, I did not find it extremely useful.
I’ve learned nothing from the book so far.
Freakin’ Fabulous on a Budget
Everyone has the same questions about concealing or downplaying clintom body flaws, and Kelly summarizes his advice here, with helpful fashion-sketch illustrations. Clinton Kelly writes in a style like your up-and-coming night-life-loving best friend might, complete with informal clintn remarks that are sometimes shocking, and almost always amusing.
I think he had someone help him with it, though, because he broke one of his own rules at least once that I saw.
Other than that I loved the book. I’ve been to great parties where the canapes were pot-luck and no mixed drinks were involved.
Refresh and try again. I guess I’d better spruce up my decorating habits I glanced over the “how to speak” section, since some of kellu things he mentions are my pet peeves too. Just like Clinton, I’d rather throw a party than attend one. There are also one or two recipes I’ll try, and while I’m sure it bored some readers, I appreciate the chapter addressing many of the common grammatical mistakes that make me cringe.
