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.

It's clear to see I'm a style icon; remember, you can't spell icon without "con."

I love clothes, accessories, and makeup as much as the next lady, man, French bulldog in a sweater, or child whose parents dressed her in a couture Halloween costume, but telling people how they should look doesn't suit me (clothes pun!). I have no authority in that department (I barely even shop in department stores). Instead this is a look at my own silly and nonsensical approach to style, and I promise only some of it is about sweatpants. This book is one part entertainment, one part irreverent fashion fun, and one part personal experience, including:

-My closet staples and jewelry MVPs, and what's actually in my makeup bag
-All about BLTs and BFFS…that is, Better-Looking T-Shirts and Best Feet Friends
-The bad-hair-day character wheel
-The Ten Commandments of online shopping
-A handy flowchart to help you decide "Should I actually buy this?"
-Red-carpet ridiculousness
-Grace Expectations: What your denim says about you
-And MORE!

I'm not stylish--I'm self-aware. I'm not polished--I'm perceptive. I'm not trendy--but I love trying. Because when it comes down to it, "style" is just a simple way of saying "I showered."
