    1. I love Stacy and Clinton and I would never have thought of Stacy as a tempering influence but Clinton by himself--OMG! The tone of this book is beyond snarky, all the way to mean. And his constant references to needing prescription drugs and alcohol in order to cope with the atrocities he's been forced to look at are just too much. And don't get me started about his comments on women's bodies who have borne children/had the audacity to grow older. I'm sorry he finds stretch marks so bleeping off [...]


    2. Delicious snark. Oh so perfect. And only takes 35 minutes! I read it in bed while wearing a Polarfleece anorak and crappy hair. Irony not lost on me AT ALL.If you're still on the fence, how about this?A Xanax Haiku, by Clinton KellyYou take the edge offFewer calories than wineGeneric's nice too.


    3. This is the first book I've rated without finishing. I hate not completing a book once I've started it, so no matter how tedious or torturous I may find it, I always proceed until its conclusion has been reached. I did not intend to break that habit any time soon, but there's only so much I can take!If there was content in "Oh No She Didn't" when the project was first started, it was tossed in favor of belittling, snide snippets. I've never found Clinton to be unbearably asshole-ish on his show, [...]


    4. I think most people would agree I'm a Nice Person. This means I don't say all of the mean things that sometimes go through my head. However, it is DELIGHTFUL to read all of the mean things that go through Clinton Kelly's head. I laffed my arse off. :-)


    5. Clinton Kelly is to writing what muffin top is to fashion. This book should have never been published; it should have gone straight into that big silver garbage can long before it saw the light of day. For a man who insists we must all dress our age, he employs a surfeit of underage colloquialisms: "I nearly peed my pants" and "I threw up a little in my mouth", are the obvious and most egregious examples - his book teems with them! This is not a grown man "of a certain age" with an intelligent, [...]


    6. The subtitle of this very small book is "The Top 100 Style Mistakes Women Make and How to Avoid Them". Much as I love Clinton and his co-hort from "What Not to Wear", I have to take this book to task a bit. First, it's incredibly thin - literally. At just barely 200 pages, the retail price is still $25.99, and we all know how I feel about finding bargains when it comes to books. Second, the content is a bit on the thin side as well, meaning that the author and/or the publishers have relied on a [...]


    7. We've all seen these fashion mistakes. And I've been guilty of quite a few.This book had me cracking up with my librarian before I even left the building. Hilarious!My only criticism of the book would be that Kelly willfully ignores the very real fact that many women wear ill-fitting clothes because they do not have the financial means with which to update and refine their wardrobes, or they are too busy working all day and doing all the home work in the evening and have no time to shop, or live [...]


    8. For what it's worth, this is a 4-5 star book if it were in its own category (short funny magazine articles compiled into a book-category), and I would ask my library to buy it for me again in an instant, but I was kind of turned off by Clinton's tone throughout. He is pretty dang critical and outright mean at times. Also, he has a potty mouth. For the guy who writes books about how to be freakin' fabulous, I would think he would be interested in sounding slightly less juvenile. Seriously. Tattoo [...]


    9. I mostly read books like this for the irritainment value (irritating entertainment = that's irritainment!), and sure enough, this book mostly made me indignant. For every legit crisis of fashion there were at least five things that alternately gave me a "who cares," "mind your own business," and "whatever, that looks fine" reaction. I continue to rage against professional style gurus who would put every woman in the world in a thong lest someone have their eyeballs singed by visible pantylines. [...]


    10. i realize i am kind of a hypocrite for liking this book so much when i hated with the fire of a thousand suns, but clinton kelly is just so much better at this. he's an asshole, but he's the kind of asshole you want to hang out with, whereas i just wanted to stuff derek blasberg into a can. clinton kelly is also extremely hilarious, so the whole book comes off as tongue-in-cheek rather than nastily offensive. (also, clinton says it's fine not to shave your legs as long as you don't wear transpar [...]


    11. If you've read any fashion tips in the last ten years, this is a waste of time. You really don't want to read this--it's just going to either a) make you feel bad about yourself or b) make you want to punch Clinton Kelly in the face or c) all of the above. I totally understand that it is usually a good thing to look put-together and classy, but the nastiness and body hate that comes across in this book is shocking. For example, any time a piece of clothing is "bad," it often makes the wearer loo [...]


    12. More rant than true style guide, this book basically serves as an excuse for Clinton Kelly to unleash his (considerable) inner bitch. For every legitimate piece of fashion advice, there are two or three catty remarks about people who wear polar fleece or open-toed shoes with hose or have frosted hair. I like mean, snarky humor, so this worked for me, but I also don't dress this way. If you're looking for style advice, I'd find another book. If you've seen every episode of What Not To Wear and wa [...]


    13. Photographs and "don'ts" of the most common fashion mistakes. Clinton's snide comments are funny because they are so truthful. I am guilty of a few of these offenses--holiday sweaters and horizontal stripes (love stripes!) So what if they don't look good--they make me feel good and that's what counts! Taken with a grain of salt, it's useful information for anyone trying to dig out of a fashion rut.


    14. I love a good, sharp biting wit, but there is a fine line between sharp wit and mean-spiritedness. The first one takes intelligence and the second one does not.This book had some really good advice about fashion faux pas, so I would recommend it for that reason, but skip it if you're looking for anything else.


    15. Snarky and hilariousI live Clinton Kelly and want him to become my new best friend, the one who invites me to cocktail parties (my drink of choice is G & T too), dishes on the lady in chintz, and, yes, tells me my LBD is lay-haim. Don't get me wrong, I'll still rock my cherry red lipstick. But at least it will be intentional, like wearing brown or navy shoes with it.


    16. What woman doesn't LOVE Clinton from "What Not to Wear"?! I sure do. Out of 100 style mistakes only 4 overtly applied to me, and 3 of these are related and are no surprise. Muffin top and midsection cling are things I am very aware of which I've tried to address with layering. It really helps. But then on page 170 I hit jackets that don't button -YIKES! Probably only one of my 50 or so sweaters and jackets do actually button. I'm not willing to replace a large chunk of my wardrobe, which by the [...]


    17. I saw this book on a shelf while I waited in line to check out at my local library and picked it up on a whim. I am the first to admit that I know little to nothing about fashion, nor do I really care. I do not care about name brands, purses, high heels, or haute couture. But I also know that I (and apparently, many women in the U.S.) could use some gentle reminders of "What Not to Wear." Last summer before we moved, I cut my hair and my girlfriends helped me weed out my closet and go shopping t [...]


    18. After a crappy encounter with a patron, I came home with this awesome book and read it cover to cover, something I hadn't done in years! And it provided much fun and relaxation, just what I needed, especially since I had to go back to work later to close. I've enjoyed watching Clinton on his TV show "What's not to wear" and have always wondered what he would do with my wardrobe. Other women's mistakes are so obvious but what about myself? I have an extremely limited clothes budget, well, okay, I [...]


    19. Completely irreverent, funny and a bit off-color, Clinton Kelly dishes on what not to include in your wardrobe in Oh No She Didn’t. Each page is filled with humorous pictures of how we shouldn’t dress and contains a rule along with a snarky explanation.Most of the rules in here are common sense (or at least most of them should be). The rule about not wearing flip-flops outside of the pool or the beach gets a big “Amen!” from my corner. I remember going to the store and looking for sandal [...]


    20. I read a description of this book somewhere and thought it would be a fun, maybe educational read for me. It *was* a fun read. I laughed out loud enough that my husband started asking me what I was reading, and peeking through the entries himself. Most of the mistakes described in the book are common sense, but not all. Toward the end of the book, I got the feeling that the guy was stretching really hard to find 100 style mistakes. For example, apparently wearing pink is a fashion mistake. Huh? [...]


    21. 3.5 stars/Non-Fiction; FashionOh King Kelly, it must be awful lonely up there on your throne of fashion perfectionI liked this book and laughed out loud more than once. I would love to meet him in person to see if he really is as snarky as this book sounds. It must be an awful burden for him to have to see all the wardrobe atrocities knowing that he, as one man, can do so little to wake us up to the injustice. I would drink too. ☺While I agree that most of the content in his book seems like co [...]


    22. I'm a fan of What Not to Wear, so anything by Clinton Kelly works for me. This book is slighter by far than the show, and Clinton bitchier (is that possible?), but I'll admit I've made some of the 100 mistakes in the book (who owns a few hoodies and has a few pairs of pants too long for her comfortable work shoes? THIS gal!) and I was even referencing it to my sister last weekend about the aforementioned too-long pant rule (she has 10 pairs of pants and wears them all with too-short heels--it ma [...]


    23. When I saw that Clinton Kelly from What Not to Wear (love that show!) wrote a new book, I had to pick it up at the library. Overall I liked the book and the style tips. I found myself cringing during certain little "mini-chapters" because I have fallen victim in the past to a few of the style mistakes Mr. Kelly points out. There were several humorous parts as well as a few outrageous parts that seemed like he was trying a bit too hard, but I had fun reading the book. It's a fast, easy read.


    24. did i tell you i saw clinton kelly give the keynote speech at the college & research library convention and i died a thousand deaths it was so wonderful and everyone got in such a huff about "a man" telling us "what shoes to wear" but i live and breathe for you, CK, and i read your book in sweatpants and a cardigan while baking a pie, i am SORRY about the sweatpants? did i tell you that?oh.


    25. I kind of didn't like it. Book Clinton comes off as quite snarky, and show Clinton comes off as so sweet. The two personae didn't jive in my head. Also, I like my white cross trainers. My feet never ever hurt, and I don't get blisters when I wear them. I don't need Clinton Kelly to tell me they're not fashionable, but what if I just don't give a crap?


    26. If you like TLC's What Not to Wear, you will probably like this book by Clinton Kelly. You can almost hear his voice as you read it. The book gives a fairly comprehensive list of style faux pas to avoid, delivered in Clinton's witty, no-holds-barred manner.




    27. I used to really like Clinton Kelly on 'What Not to Wear', but the mean nature of his commentary on these fashions was very disheartening. Most of the things he said were unnecessarily hurtful. I wanted to read this book to learn about style faux-pas and how to upgrade my look, not to walk away feeling insulted and bad about myself. Even though I wasn't guilty of a good chunk of the 'mistakes' listed, it made me mad to see the way he chose to describe the women who were. Especially the one about [...]


    28. Not only is the author dead wrong about certain things being in style / out of style (the book was written a while ago, so I'll give him that) he is invariably offensive and smugly condescending while he's at it. Even if I agreed with more than 1 out of 10 points, I wouldn't be able to stand his tone. He relates several incidents where he met someone in person who recognized him, and describes the ensuing conversation, where he manages to both belittle the person's fashion choices and the person [...]
