I've never seen the American version. Are they as blunt as Trinny and Susannah?

I like the closet fights...Its like all the inner voices when trying to decide to throw out the ugly stuff that you love. LOL

Its clothing not the soul. They can be catty. Its just cloth. I would love to go on one of those shows. I do agree that they should give them foot friendly options. I know I wouldn't get pointy ones on these banana boats I have.

I really do prefer clinton's sense of style to stacy's.

I think the around the house gets tossed because its just cheap worn out stuff that WILL make itself be worn on laundry day..and then its saturdays..and then everyday....lol

And you can make tons of outfits with a few good key pieces and then pick up bargains here and there to style the look differently. Coco Chanel died with a very thin closet.

Have any of you cleaned out closets with friends or family? You find some funny crap the older the person is and the more of a pack rat they tend to be. Funniest find was a salmon jumpsuit with RHINESTONES on it in my aunts closet. LOL

I LOVE that show! LOL! I think its a little insane that they do the majority of the shopping at boutique's where a shirt cost $450. I mean, it makes perfect sense to do basics at a higher end store, to make sure they last. Like...if you work in an office your best black slacks shouldn't come from The Gap. But to buy $100 belts and stuff is crazy.

I like when people maintain their personal edge. I think that Nick gives good haircuts most of the time. Sometimes he's just dead wrong! And Carmindy is beautiful and good at what she does.

I've gotten some really good tips from the show. I miss it though...I've let my (extremely) overpriced cable go....

Ham is really low cal. Just don't eat the fat or the sugar coatings.

Calories in Ham, Sliced, Regular

Its 50 cals for a regular slice. It was one of my first calorie surprises too.

Don't care much for ham but I LOVE What Not To Wear! The people always look so much better, though probably we all would if we all had $5000 to spend JUST on clothes!

I like the show but agree that sometimes the comments are too snide.

I hate the amount that they pay for some of those clothes. What a waste.

And please tell me those god-awful pointy toed shoes are going out of fashion!

I just can't stand them.
