May 03, Christy Cole rated it it was amazing This book is so funny - I highly recommend it for ladies young and old. Every couple sentences I kept wanting to stop and write down a quote. I agree with basically everything Derek says in his book, and although it is a cute read for us adults, I think teens could actually learn something by reading this - that so many of the celebs and socialites on reality TV are just NOT ladies and should NOT be emulated.

It adds spice and a new twist to the age-old definition of "classy". I really love being able to see how many famous people in history and present I have qualities in common with.
This book does mention etiquette a lot, but is NOT an etiquette book. Very hard to take seriously because there were numerous errors in spelling, grammar, and paragraphs were doubled or used twice or even more throughout the book.
It is as if nobody even read it before it was published and put on shelves to be sold. Some parts were funny and insightful, but for the most part it was idiotic with not so subtle jabs at celebrities who What a disappointment.
Some parts were funny and insightful, but for the most part it was idiotic with not so subtle jabs at celebrities who the author clearly does not get along with. I thought it was going to be a whole differnt book with all new advice, but turns out all it is is the original Classy with a few extra chapters.
Not really worth 18 dollars if you ask me. Still funny and informative, though: Aug 16, Nabilah rated it it was amazing This book is great and not preachy at all.
Aug 13, Amanda Bracken rated it did not like it This book actually filled me with rage. Hated it! Feb 02, Rachel rated it did not like it Bought this book in a thrift shop in Michigan. Seriously thought this was parody when I picked it up. Thought it would be a scathing assessment of the "ideal woman" expectation. Not only was it full of spelling and grammatical errors come on, you HAVE an editor , but it was about as deep as a puddle.
What to wear at the airport. Derek picks literally the most complicated outfit as the "classy" ideal. Knee-high boots. Derek wants you to be the douche canoe who Bought this book in a thrift shop in Michigan. Derek wants you to be the douche canoe who spends like an hour undressing in the TSA line. Even suggests bracelets and a watch. Oh, and a blazer. All this while mocking the women who dress down because Derek, we working peasants are tired.
This book must set some record for celebrity name and face dropping. I highly doubt gratuitously dropping names is "classy". All this advice is geared towards not having a job and having an obscene amount of money. I doubt his audience does. Great advice for the celebrities in the book.
