I think this may be an OK book to give to someone who is graduating high school, but as a 26 year-old woman, I found this book to be a bit silly. (As is the fact that at this age I'm even watching shows such as The Hills/City).

The photography is horrible--HORRIBLE, and I found it strange that in so many photos of her outfits, she is barefoot. But once again, I think there are certain bits in this book that could be helpful to someone much younger, such as tips on interviewing and encouragement...more

As an independent woman living in New York city, I found this book extremely helpful. Who knew stripes with polka dots is a fashion faux-pas? I sure didn't! Many a time I've been booed out of a job interview, only to realize that my use of chanel and old spice was a no-no! The grace (and wit ;) ) Whit brings to every page is simply fabulous. If I could be half the woman Whit is someday, I would be incredibly happy! Five stars :) !!!!
Picked this up in the library thinking it was a fashion book. I watched a couple episodes of The Hills years ago and remembered the author as a likable side-character.

It turns out that this is an advice book for 20-somethings just starting out... The author addresses everything from interviewing for jobs to decorating your first home. One "home decorating" tip: Keep a condom in your nightstand, so it is always handy. Umm, thanks.

The many photos are pretty to look at, but I’d skip the words. Get...more
The truth about you is:

that I really would like to love you, but you are making it so damn hard. Yes, I’m talking about True Whit. The book that was written by Whitney Port. The girl from the reality TV show the Hills & later on the City. I wanted to read this book for a long time now & I decided to take it with me to Curacao. I wanted to read it because I really liked the cover, I like Whitney Port & love her style. I thought this would be a great book to read on the beach, somethin...more
Personally I thought this was going to be more of Whitney's story than advise that can be found in any given fashion magazine. It opens really well- but...
Really I was turned off by page 62 were she fills three pages of bitterness under the title Evil Coworkers- the whole time she is slandering one person. Even if this girl was evil she has no opportunity to defend herself here and boiling in old anger and trash talk is not a Whit-tey tip for dealing with people. The whole section seemed like...more

I was a bit disappointed in this book. I followed Whitney Port on "The Hills" and "The City", and while she wasn't my favourite character, I was still a fan. I thought this book would be similar to Lauren Conrad's "Style" (which blew me away!) but it was not even close. The book seemed like it was aimed to 15 year olds, even though Whitney wrote it for the mid-twenties and up audience. The quality of the photos was awful, like Whitney took them in her bedroom with her phone. I really didn't lear...more
Whitney is always fabulous and down-to-earth. I love her. I did find it odd that she was shoeless in a lot of the photography, though.
Sometimes you just need a pointless book to break the day up. And this book so was! The author is one of the girls from THE HILLS, Whitney Port and this was her style guide. Not just clothes, but a whole style for life guide for the 20-something gal! For something I barely care about, this book wasn't too bad. If you like her, then you'll love this book as it is so her, for the most part. There seem to be little adverts in it and a bit of talking about her life on the tv shows and they seemed a...more
This book is def a guidebook for many girls out there around or under twenties! From home sweet home chapter until designing woman, it wraps into one pretty also handy thing, my favourite sections are style, dating and hello gorgeous. I feel like we're connected and have the same perspectives over almost everything :D each page made me craving for more.. even though there were several bad quality photos & barefooted pictures but Whitney I've never thought you're not only talented in fashion...more

A quick summer read to pass the time. The photography was terrible and so were some of the outfits !!!

Recommends it for: anyone who loves beauty & lifestyle books
I'm a fan of Whitney's and I'm definitely proud of all she's accomplished. It's just so easy to get distracted but Whitney has stayed the course and this book shows that.

I really I LOVED that when she suggests clothes, decorations, etc. that she frequently mentions bargain stores like Target and more. This way you really CAN get her style (or something similar) without breaking the bank.

I enjoyed this book and I definitely want to own my own copy in the future!

great book gave tips about everything i need to know about my room and parties and other great tips.
Seems like most of it is aimed at high school students, and the rest is common sense.
I liked Lauren Conrad's book better
Very Whitney port.
