I do not have time to eloquently delve into the many ways this sexist and subtly misogynistic book slut shames women, but I assure you, Emily Post and some common sense are a far better bet than this literary excretion. The bawdy content is certainly modern If you like the female presentation and appearance being criticised in the format of “The Soup”, this is the book for you.
The only resemblance any part of this book bore to being “classy” is the cover color reminiscent of a Tiffany box. Otherwise, I’m afraid you’re out of luck. I guess what Derek is trying to say is that it’s easy to be classy if you compare yourself to a drug addict, poverty stricken, mentally Ill, or handicap person. Derek’s book made me feel sick to my stomach. I’m glad he is not a parental or married. Cheeky, clever, entertaining and insightful, Derek Blasberg’s guide on how to be a cool, modern lady is worth the read.
He gives a candid perspective on how to style yourself, how to act in the company of others and how to avoid or at least be able to recover from gaffes, other embarrassing situations and temptations. Although he is not a female himself, he certainly knows more than many others about how to distinguish a lady from a tramp and shows you how to avoid falling into the latter category.

As a recent graduate of college I have been trying to advocate to peers and younger sorority sisters the importance of acting like a lady- still having fun but doing it in a classy way. Now although there were certain aspects of this book I like and agree with I did not find it very informative for anyone over 17, but I would love it for my younger sister who is about to enter college.
It is also a little dry and not an easy fun read. The author has witty comments but it could be better. I also thought that some of the comments were geared towards the wealthy high-end California party hoppers.
For example why do I need to know the proper way to wear clothes that have been donated to me from a boutique – there are no photographers following me around. I also thought there derej certain things that the author considered class that is not classy: A good starter read for a younger sister agebut may have to read in multiple sittings. Explains why you should and should not wear certain things, and how you are presenting yourself.
I love this book. Derek says it how it is. Obvious but the blaaberg helped with clarifying the language used.
It’s easy to claim you don’t do something and then you review the picture of the “don’t” and realize Not what I was blasberh. It’s set up like a manual which is fine, but it’s not an easy read as it’s kind of all over the place. I still love Derek Balsberg though!!
I didn’t read but maybe a fourth of the book and I was over it. See all 61 reviews.
