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 unladylike...no matter how seemingly liberating. Don't waste your money on this one...you can buy mine!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
