I am a huge fan of the show on TLC called What Not to Wear and Clinton Kelly. Last year I got Clinton Kelly’s book Freakin’ Fabulous and loved it.
Earlier this year I heard that Clinton had a new book coming out called Oh NO She Didn’t and I was super excited and quickly made a note that I wanted to get it.
Then I found out that he was going to be at BEA and I knew I had to get in line to see him and was really praying that he would have his book with him and that I would get a copy signed. I wasn’t sure that I would get to see him because the line was so long but I have to say I am happy to report I did get to see him and get this picture taken with him.
I have to say that I was pretty nervous about meeting him. Not so much him but because of what he does on tv and honestly I tried to say pretty neutral in what I wore I believe it was a basic white top with black Capri’s but sneakers on my feet and I made that comment not to look down and he was so funny and said not to worry its a convention and its hard to dress up and walk around so phew.
This is what he was signing:
Its basically a chapter out of his book I believe. It wasn’t his book which bummed me out because I would have loved to have gotten that signed and I didn’t think to bring my copy of Freakin’ Fabulous and I wish I had.
Anyways today Clinton’s new book is being released and I have it on my wish list and hoping to pick it up very soon. If you are fan of the show then this is the book for you. Pick it up and enjoy it.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Muffin tops. Scrunchies. Suntan hose. Slut shoes. Visible panty line.
Who hasn’t had the unfortunate experience of witnessing—or (gasp!) actually wearing—one of these fashion disasters?
The atrocities Clinton Kelly has seen—it’s a surprise he hasn’t gouged out his own eyes. Mom jeans? Fancy fingernails? Tracksuits? In the same straight-talking style that has made TLC’s What Not to Wear a smash hit for eight seasons, the cheeky media personality and author of Freakin’ Fabulous shows women how to outfit themselves with confidence and style as he pokes fun at fashion “don’ts.” From the most obvious faux pas (Texas tuxedos) to borderline offenses (peekaboo boobies), Clinton offers detailed and entertaining critiques of our top one hundred sartorial slip-ups. He turns his keen eye to wardrobe, color, cut, cleanliness, hairstyle, accessories, and even posture. And because he loves you, he presents easy alternatives and practical suggestions for creating fabulous outfits that will make you forget you ever wore socks with clogs.
Clinton also explains how to use trends to your advantage at any age, from deciding which ones work for you to understanding how to wear them to keep your look relevant. Because if you’re not comfortable in the sequined mini, everyone around you will know it.
A delightful mix of hilarious dish and expert fashion advice, Oh No She Didn’t will turn anyone from fashion victim to fashionista in no time.
