A Review: Classy by Derek Blasberg | Closet Fashionista
Thanks for telling dereek about the problem. Dec 22, Becky rated it derem not like it. Derek Blasberg is a man with a mission – smack some class without losing all the sass into the modern, young female. Oh, and a blazer. Apr 30, A P rated it it was ok Shelves: Here’s your chance to prevent a few embarassing Facebook photos, and nip slips.
If i dont understand a word or even a whole paragraph i wont move on until i understand.
Yet, this book does not focus on technical aspects but more of an overall guide on those five things I mentioned above. This week my goal is to finish Classy so i can classsy on the girl with the dragon tattoo and enjoy it more. It was more like a book on how to not be like the train-wreck characters on Jeresy Shore aka a normal, functioning member of society. He sprinkles details about himself throughout the book, bragging about his small town upbringing and how he eventually made it to the top to be invited to all the most popular parties.

And i am now i page So, I guess now in clasey 4th decade it was my time to be open to a modern take on etiquette. There are many chapters describing what a respectable, and fun, young woman ought to know and do, and the many things she ought not to.

Although he gives a somewhat comical and sometimes blunt approach to becoming a “classy” young lady, it was very entertaining and also extremely useful. Gyms are for exercise, not cleavage. Blasberg poked fun at some rather foolish choices and faux pas, while providing constructive criticism, wise advice, and practical suggestions.
I always ask a bunch of questions inside my head, like im annotating but in my head. The advice is contrived at best, and he spends a good bulk of the book reprimanding his idea of “trashy” women. See all blasbsrg by Derek Blasberg. This man-splain-ual made me cringe at least blxsberg every page. Great advice for the celebrities in the book.
It adds spice and a new twist to the age-old definition of “classy”. Why is each section so long?! Overall a fun read. Classy people do not call people tramps and skanks and make “witty” comments about how if you have sex with a lot of people you should make sure you get paid for it. In conclusion, I would strongly recommend this book to girls below year-old, particularly those in high schools and universities. Travel is another subject touched upon in this book.

From bad table manners, to the twisted online world, he gives tips, advice, and personal annecdotes to what makes a lady and stamps clearly the behaviour of a tramp.
He likes to promote his book by the use of mentioning and showing photographs of his famous friends name dropping? This week i’m thinking i’m going to elaborate more on my thinking through out the book and how it’s varied within time.
BooksDerek Blasberg. It is as if nobody even read it before it was published and put on shelves to be sold. Doesn’t mean that it overshadows my every book i read, because blasber really doesn’t but it still present.
No trivia or quizzes yet. Don’t take no for an answer. Derek in the face. This week i’ve read at least two hours worth of “Classy.
