(from Grace's website)

My goal in this book isn’t to tell anyone how they should dress or how they should do their hair or makeup or even what poop bags to purchase (The other day I walked into Target and saw that there are literally OPTIONS for the type of bags you can use to pretend to scrape your dog’s feces off the ground).

Trust me, I’m not stylish. I’m self-aware. I’m not polished, I’m perceptive. I’m not trendy, I’m trying. I LOVE fashion and style as much as the next lady, man, or French bulldog, but telling people how they should look doesn’t suit me. I know I have no authority in that department (I barely even shop in department stores). Instead, this is a look at my own silly and yet practical approach to style (don’t worry, I’ve already been restricted to no more than two chapters on sweatpants).

This book is one part parody, one part irreverent fashion fun, and one part personal experience. Think Amy Sedaris's I Like You for fashion or imagine if Lauren Conrad’s book Lauren Conrad Style loosened its modest, but pricey (because it’s an investment piece!!!) Banana Republic belt a few notches… I’d still probably think this guide is completely dumb, but hey, this book is about pretending you've got grace & style and it makes no apologies about having fun.

(or, description from Amazon)

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grace’s Guide and the host of The Grace Helbig Show on E! comes a beautifully illustrated, tongue-in-cheek book about style that lampoons fashion and beauty guides while offering practical advice in Grace Helbig’s trademark sweet and irreverent voice.
