The style guru and author of Freakin’ Fabulous shows you how to have it all—haute fashion, food and décor—at bargain-basement prices.
As co-host of TLC’s popular What Not to Wear and ABC’s The Chew, Clinton Kelly is constantly helping his guests look and feel their best. Now he’s going to share his secrets for making every part of your life more fabulous—whether you want to make over your wardrobe, add glamour to your next soiree, or brighten up that dingy bathroom—even if there’s no room in your budget. After all, Freakin’ Fabulous doesn’t have to come at a price—if you have Clinton in your corner.
Filled with pages of full-color photography, helpful advice, and numerous ideas for styling, partying, and better living, this book will make you the envy of everyone on the block without emptying your bank account.
As Kelly doles out wit and wisdom on everything from thrift store sprees to proper dinner etiquette, he playfully reminds you that you don’t need to be a movie star to live like one…as long you shop smartly. Remember, anybody can be fabulous—it’s not the size of your funds but how you use them.
Expanding on his 2008 book, Freakin' Fabulous: How to Dress, Speak, Behave, Eat, Drink, Entertain, Decorate and Generally Be Better Than Everybody Else, TV personality Kelly offers witty tips on how to live well on the cheap. Beginning with simple dishes and basic cocktails that won't break the bank, Kelly does a terrific job of demystifying the role of host or hostess. He's less effective when it comes to decor, focusing mainly on thrift-store dos and don'ts before breezily skipping on to crafts. Depending on the reader's tastes, DIY napkins made from old shirts, homemade terrariums in canning jars, and spray-painted gourds could be the best things ever or completely horrific. Style tips on shopping are thoughtful and practical, just as one would expect from the former cohost of What Not to Wear. Readers in search of basic housekeeping and party-hosting tips not to mention Kelly's fans will find the book informative and entertaining.
