INTRODUCTION

THE ATROCITIES I’VE SEEN

I mean, seriously, sometimes I’m surprised I haven’t already gouged out my own eyes. Truth be told, I did come pretty damn close once. I was in Pittsburgh, at the airport, or maybe it was Cincinnati. Doesn’t matter, really. There I was, just minding my own business, reading the newspaper and waiting for my flight to board, when a couple of women approached me.

“Are you Clinton?” one of them asked.

This question always kind of bugs me. You know it’s me. Just say hello and go back to your quadruple mocha latte. “Yep,” I replied, and looked up to see two of the most horrific outfits imaginable. Both women—both—were wearing horizontal-striped turtlenecks tucked into high-waisted Mom Jeans with white cross-trainers.

“We love your show!” said one.

“We watch it all the time!” declared the other.

I smiled and said thank you, because I’m a gentleman. But inside my little head, I screamed to the heavens with all my might: Why, God! Why do you hate me so much!

Maybe I get a tad exasperated from time to time, but certainly you can understand why. I’ve spent the good part of a decade explaining, with as much patience as I could muster, why you shouldn’t pair socks with sandals, why you might want to avoid tube tops after the age of forty, why elastic-waist pants are evil incarnate. But, evidently, not everyone is listening.

Still, I continue on with my mission to make America a more beautiful place. I’m like that Native American dude from the commercial who cries when he sees people litter. Except, I’m not crying. It’s more like I’m laughing at you. In fact, he’s laughing at you too. We’re having gin and tonics right now, and I was just telling him that your outfit was revolting. And you know what he said?

“And how.”

And how! Couldn’t you just die? I almost peed my pants a little.

I am a big fan of M. Kelly....um.. I was. I rushed to get this book and was very disappointed with the tone of the book. He presents it with such arrogance! I understand that he must be frustrated to see all us women with flaws and we do need guidance sometimes, but the women who do not care about their look will never buy this book- they just don't care! There is a way to write things and a wrong way, and this one was...almost never in good tone. There are a few chapters that are in good taste, and he certainly seems to be trying to give us good insight and direction. So I will be waiting for the next one, with hopes that it more respectful, that it will complete and add to what we see on his show.

Tone of book might have meant to be 'tongue and cheek' but I found it mean-spirited. Not impressed and mad at myself for wasting my money. Fan of Clinton as a tv personality but not as an author.

I know that i dont know how to dress, but I do know how to be kind and let go of the things that would make me bitter. This book was a waste of money and time.

This mean and crushing novel about "how youre SUPPOSED to dress" is just shocking. Before i even read the second paragragh of the description i was discusted. Girls these days are already uncofident enough without your discouriging novel. How do you know girls cant rock a scrunchie or look fab in a muffin top. I was extemely dissapionted. This is trash. You hear me? Trash. TRASH. This is T R A S H. Dont buy it. All those girls who have been discoureged by this book, DO NOT LISTEN TO IT! You are beautiful no matter WHAT YOU WEAR! its fine to wear whatever you want. Do not let them change you. You are wondeful any way you are. You are WONDERFUL!
