A Real Woman is a Pretty Woman

Discovering a Lovelier You
Craig
1974

If you remember, we have featured a few of these books (because one book just wouldn’t be enough to fix what is wrong with women). Remember how to figure out your man? Or how about finding fulfillment as a woman through crafts?

Today’s selection is about making yourself as pretty as possible. Those crazy women libbers want you to be ugly. There is a bunch of self-esteem messages along with all the beauty tips. Throughout the book, the author advises  that those women libber types don’t know what they are talking about. Every woman wants to look her best!

Who doesn’t want to sit in front of the mirror doing facial exercises to achieve feminine fulfillment?

Advice for Stylin’ Guys

The Style Guy
O’Brien
2000

O’Brien was GQ magazine’s fashion columnist until 2015. (He evidently blasted GQ in an interview and resigned.) His advice column talked about everything from fashion advice to etiquette. None of it is particularly timeless. I wasn’t too impressed, but I am not the target market. Maybe it was cool in 2000, but jokes about porn and other sexually charged topics fall flat. This particular book hadn’t left the shelves in a decade, so I think we can safely retire it.

PS As I was googling around for the author, I found out that O’Brien passed away this past April.

Groovy Crafts for the Fulfilled Woman

Crafts for Fun and Profit
Van Zandt
1972

This series is called Women Alive. We already posted the book that helps you figure out your man. After you figure out your man, you can sit down and make some lovely crafts. I particularly like the macrame vest thing with fringe. Very sexy. I think it is the plaid pants that really pull the outfit together.

I think I really need this whole series.
