'You know the Fabulous Girl, don't you? She's Holly Golightly, the girl you must have at your cocktail party. She's smart, fun, sophisticated, and of course beautifully well-mannered. She's the friend who always knows when you need a shoe-shopping expedition to lift your spirits.

The "Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum" is an entertaining, stylish and thoroughly modern guide to manners. It offers invaluable advice on workplace etiquette and how to maintain the admiration and respect of your colleagues, entertaining (including how to throw the perfect dinner party and what to do if it all goes horribly wrong), sex and romance (which we all know aren't necessarily the same thing), dealing with one-night-stands, modern marriage and divorce, friendship and fashion. Woven throughout this wealth of witty advice is the story of the Fabulous Girl herself as she learns to glide gracefully through her days. The "Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum" is as essential as a little black dress - elegant, practical and something no woman of today should be without!

Women have always had a hard time in the career climb. This book lets women know how to laugh at ourselves and gives good advice on how to handle our mistakes gracefully, and hopefully how to avoid them in the future. While sex may still be a touchy subject even today, I rather liked how frank the authors were about handling the one-night fling, a martial mating, and boy toy mistakes. Granted not every woman does all of these things, some may do all, but instead of being embarrassed and depressed or (worse yet) rude about the situation, why not elegantly brush yourself off and keep going forward through life? Life is meant to be enjoyed and the FG's encourage everyone to do so. Remember though to take it all in with a grain of salt. For a different perspective, I would recommend THE RULES (Ellen Fein, Sherrie Schneider) and THE GIRL'S GUIDE TO POWER AND SUCCESS(Susan Wilson Solovic).

I'm still reading this book...I now keep it by my nightstand and grab it to read a couple of pages per day. It's a great center of resource for MODERN issues of how to handle common situations.

I really enjoyed this book! Most of the members of my book club also enjoyed it. The only thing that may bother some readers is that the book is a bit "wordy". Truly FABULOUS girls should not find this to be the case! If you're already FABULOUS and FULL OF YOURSELF (like I am), you'll love it!

I normally give this book as a graduation gift for young ladies going into college. It is a fun quick read and reference for modern day etiquette.

The FG books are fabulous! Have a few different titles and they make a great gift! Recently purchased a couple for friends who are having a bit of trouble being assertive.

I checked out this book at my local library in pursuit of enlightening myself on decorum. I'm more than half way done with it, and so far, it's ok. I'll finish reading the book (I might as well since I'm borrowing it at no charge) but I don't think I'll buy it.

Be warned: if you're looking for a more conventional and traditional etiquette book (like Emily Post's)-- The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum is NOT for you! Avoid avoid!

While I enjoyed some aspects of the book (particularly the chapters related to work and friendships) and has its entertaining moments, I didn't really care so much about the sex and courtship section. Like having a threesome to fulfill my significant other's fantasy. In addition to being cool with him going to strip clubs. Maybe I'm too old-fashioned or "too conservative" for the current times, but I'll pass! That, and having affairs with married men. Not my cup of tea. I can't help but feel the "FG" slightly over-compromises for men who are not high quality.

I will continue reading this book since I'm almost done with it. But after I'm done--I'm reading the latest edition of Emily Post's Etiquette.

What is a Fabulous Girl? She's Holly Golightly without the baggage and the hick ex-husband -- smart, funny, sexy and sympathetic. She's also the subject of "The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum," an amusing but unbalanced mix of tongue-in-cheek goofing and etiquette lessons.
Kim Izzo and Ceri Marsh take a look at the life of the Fabulous Girl (hereafter called "FG"): Her career (how to dress for job interviews, how to deal with low-dignity "Jill Jobs"), society (the noveau riche, when to applaud), friendship, sex and dating (why you should not date a rocker), couplehood, weddings and divorce (on eloping: "Remember, there's nothing more chic than running away and coming back married"), and how to entertain.
If chick-lit came in nonfiction form, this would be it. Lots of stuff about love lives, pals (male and female) and jobs, with cutesy codewords ("Jill Job" is a I-do-it-just-for-the-money job). And it's definitely not Miss Manners. There's less focus on which fork to use than there is on proper workplace manners, or how to support your buddies.
Hidden under the froth are some genuinely good tips. Izzo and Marsh give plenty of pointers about how to conduct yourself with sophistication and style, even in an embarrassing situation. They also draw out the lines when it comes to chivalry (how should a guy help a woman into a cab?) and little details for the 21st century like when it's rude to talk on a cell phone.
That isn't to say that "Guide" has its Manolo-shod feet on the ground. The chapter on sleeping with one's boss made me squirm, as did anything having to do with flings and the obnoxious "Bingo." What's more, the description of FGs as being "smart" didn't quite fit in, since the sort of chic urban life they talk about seems to require "savvy" rather than "smarts."
"The Fabulous Girl's Guide To Decorum" is a bit confused as to whether it's an etiquette guide or a tongue-in-cheek nonfiction chick-lit. But this amusing book may offer some pointers to women seeking to be "Fabulous Girls" on all walks of life.
