    Pretty trashy

    As an avid reader of etiquette books of all sorts, I was quite disappointed with this one. In fact, this one is so smutty that there are pages I have actually torn out for fear my dear niece might think their advice is indeed 'fabulous' (NOT!). It reads more like a story and less like a how-to. While somewhat entertaining, the overuse of profanity was shockingly matter how seemingly liberating. Don't waste your money on this can buy mine!

    Not a 'Classy' girl guide

    The first few chapters and the last few were worthy reading. That's why they got two stars. About 65% of the book was a bit much to bear. The target audience seemed to be pretty narrow -- single women with a New York city type attitude. Personally, I prefer the New York style of dressing but they probably should have found a way to carry their views over to the majority of the population -- like women in the suburbs, married women, women with children. Each of these groups could use some fabulous girls, right? The title of the book is a little deceiving. I was less than impressed with their free use of four letter words and bathroom terminology. The authors obviously forgot that a 'fabulous girl' should probably also be a 'classy' girl. I'm still pained by my purchase of this book. It was probably the biggest waste of my reading time yet. Sorry girls!
