It is a well-documented fact that I love Kelly Cutrone. I would follow her to the Alps and back and sit at her feet while she shares tales from her life. To say that Kelly Cutrone has lived would be an understatement. The woman has been homeless, worked for Atlantic Records as a recording artist, owned a high powered PR firm, failed at PR only to rise again as one of the fashion industry’s top public relations experts. Mother has LIIIIIIIIVVVVVED!
Her first book “If You Have to Cry, Go Outside” was full of no-nonsense advice on finding your career and how to find your passion. “Normal Gets You Nowhere” is also no-nonsense, in your face guide for women on just about everything! From sex to motherhood, from friendships to anti-fur Kelly dishes her opinions; straight no chaser.
Kelly is the epitome of a Stylish Thought woman; not afraid to speak her mind, wears her opinions on her sleeves and loves fashion despite all it’s ludicrousness. In a book with so many intuitive lessons, here are 1o of Kelly’s powerful mantras from this life changing book.
10 Stylish Thoughts from Normal Gets You Nowhere

“Why have we all been suckered into celebrating holidays that very few of us believe in?”
