Humorously mocks traditional fashion and beauty books while offering actual advice.

Baker
& Taylor

"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 GraceHelbig's trademark sweet and irreverent voice. It's clear to see I'm a style icon; remember, you can't spell icon without "con." Grace Helbig doesn't want to tell anyone how they should dress, how they should do their hair or makeup, or even which dogpoop bags to purchase--because surprisingly, Target has numerous options for that too! While Grace doesn't claim to be stylish or polished, she is very self-aware and perceptive. Trendy? She'd rather have fun trying. She loves fashion as much as the next lady, man, or French bulldog, but telling others how they should look doesn't suit her. Instead, with Grace & Style, Grace takes us into her closet and shares her silly and practical approach to style--which obviously includes an entire chapter on sweatpants. One part parody, one part fashion fun, and one part personal experience, Grace's latest guide to life as a woman in America today is more H&M than Chanel. So tighten your Banana Republic belt a few notches and learn how to pretend and convince everyone around you that you've got style and grace!"--
A visual, tongue-in-cheek style guide lampoons traditional fashion and beauty primers while offering practical advice in the Grace's Guide comedienne's trademark irreverent voice. By a #1 New York Times best-selling author. Original.

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.”
