It's clear to see I'm a style icon; remember, you can't spell icon without "con." 

I love clothes, accessories, and makeup as much as the next lady, man, French bulldog in a sweater, or child whose parents dressed her in a couture Halloween costume, but telling people how they should look doesn't suit me (clothes pun!). I have no authority in that department-I barely even shop in department stores. Instead, this is a look at my own silly and nonsensical approach to style, and I promise only part of it is about sweatpants. This book is one part entertainment, one part irreverent fashion fun, and one part personal experience, including:

-My closet staples and jewelry MVPs, and what's actually in my makeup bag
-All about BLTs and BFFS . . . that is, Better-Looking T-Shirts and Best Feet Friends
-The bad-hair-day character wheel
-The Ten Commandments of online shopping
-A handy flowchart to help you decide "Should I actually buy this?"
-Red-carpet ridiculousness
-Grace Expectations: What your denim says about you
-And MORE! 

I'm not stylish-I'm self-aware. I'm not polished-I'm perceptive. I'm not trendy-but I love trying. Because when it comes down to it, "style" is just a simple way of saying "I showered."

When I was twelve, I was in Eight Grade. 
                              
                              A grade higher than I should've been. Yay.

I remember back when I was in third grade girls were "made and betrayed" by shopping at Justice. Like that was THE joint to popularity in 2010.

Me when I go to Forever21 and my mom says, "pick three things. No budget, but just THREE THINGS," and then I go run around the store like a madman.
