It's clear to see I'm a style icon; remember, you can't spell icon without 'con'. My goal in this book isn't to tell anyone how they should dress or how they should do their hair or makeup or even what poop bags to purchase. Trust me, I'm not stylish. I'm self-aware. I'm not polished, I'm perceptive. I'm not trendy, I'm trying. I LOVE fashion and style as much as the next lady, man or French bulldog, but telling people how they should look doesn't suit me. I know I have no authority in that department (I barely even shop in department stores). Instead, this is a look at own silly and yet practical approach to style - don't worry, I've already been restricted to no more than two chapters on sweatpants. This book is one part parody, one part irreverent fashion fun, and one part personal experience. Imagine if Lauren Conrad's book Lauren Conrad Style loosened its modest, but pricey (because it's an investment piece!!) Banana Republic belt a few notches… It'd still probably think this guide is completely dumb, but hey, this book is about pretending you've got style & grace and making no apologies for having fun.

Taking a global, multicultural, social, and economic perspective, this work explores the diverse and colourful history of human attire. From prehistoric times to the age of globalization, articles cover the evolution of clothing utility, style, production, and commerce, including accessories (shoes, hats, gloves, handbags, and jewellery) for men, women, and children. Dress for different climates, occupations, recreational activities, religious observances, rites of passages, and other human needs and purposes - from hunting and warfare to sports and space exploration - are examined in depth and detail. Fashion and design trends in diverse historical periods, regions and countries, and social and ethnic groups constitute a major area of coverage, as does the evolution of materials (from animal fur to textiles to synthetic fabrics) and production methods (from sewing and weaving to industrial manufacturing and computer-aided design). Dress as a reflection of social status, intellectual and artistic trends, economic conditions, cultural exchange, and modern media marketing are recurring themes. Influential figures and institutions in fashion design, industry and manufacturing, retail sales, production technologies, and related fields are also covered.
