Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady by Derek Blasberg

While I initially found it odd that a man would be doling out advice on what it means for a young woman to be classy, his experiences working in the fashion and entertainment industries definitely give him credibility as a resource.  Unfortunately, we live in a time when many famous young women are TERRIBLE role models.  It’s not uncommon to see young actresses with barely any clothing behaving in a less than classy manner (to put it politely).  Blasberg provides excellent “lady vs. tramp” visual guides for topics like dressing appropriately, sitting in a skirt, and dating as well as etiquette tips for a multitude of situations.  There are sections on clothing, parties, travel, friendship, dating, facing temptation, and the importance of lifelong learning.  I absolutely LOVED this book because it shows young women that looking trashy is not the best way to get attention, that there are many things more important than worrying about your physical appearance, and that dressing/behaving appropriately can still be lots of fun!

Happy Reading!
