…because WHATEVER doesn’t work anymore. I was out at Barney’s taking a friend to lunch (like a City Girl) and I ran across this title. I did a double take. Because whatever doesn’t work anymore. Amen, sister. I promptly picked it up (got permission to untie the bow wrapped around it, it was Barney’s after all) and loved it at first sight. Ellen Lubin-Sherman has written the modern guide to being “fabulous” (and a guide to some basic manners, thank you, Ellen!) Manners aside, this is a really fun read and I completely enjoyed it.
With chapters like Fabulous people are delightfully authentic and Fabulous people are revered for their amazing attitude, I knew I would gobble it up. I also knew you, my fabulous Smart Creative Women, would really get a kick out of it as well! This book is refreshingly well written. Ellen is a gifted writer and her book is full of optimism, good smart advice and fabulousness!
Takeaway: She says that fabulous people know what makes them tick. She says maybe you where one of the lucky ones and someone took you aside and told you that you were gifted or maybe you figured it out yourself. Or maybe you’re still trying to figure out what you ought to do with your talents and skills. She encourages you to be patient with yourself . They don’t teach self-knowledge in college. But figure it out you MUST, because it is the secret to a happy and passionate life. You identify your gift and incorporate that gift into your daily life. You take your remarkable quality that makes you stand out, name it and then showboat it.
Just by reading that advice, you know she is my kind of gal! That is what I want for you too! (hello, Smart Creative Style) You can buy the book from Barney’s here (not quite like going in person, I know) or on Amazon here. And how about these outfits that Ellen sports? My closet is looking quite dull compared to these! You can see more fun outfits here.
We are giving away a copy of The Essentials of Fabulous. To enter add a comment below (tell me if you think “whatever” isn’t working anymore!) A winner will be picked on Sept 4th!
