If you ever wanted some style advice with a side of sass, JoAnn from Bensonhurst is your go-to gal. She's an over-the-top Brooklynite whose accent will knock your leopard print slippers off, and whose tell-it-like-it-is attitude will knock you back into reality. Her show this week on CafeMom Studios focused on style and beauty -- JoAnn took subscribers' fashion questions and doled out some pretty unforgettable advice on inner beauty, underwear, and how to know when your jeans are too tight. There's also a little segment on cooking chicken cutlets, which was a little out of left field, but not entirely unappreciated.
Once you get past the fact that you're listening to style tips from a woman whose beauty routine includes dark brown lip liner, there are are some valuable takeaways. Her advice, though tongue in cheek, is actually pretty timeless.
She says that animal prints are always in (true), that Jennifer Aniston is a style goddess (true), that your jeans are too tight if you look like five pounds of meat stuffed into a three-pound bag (true). She gets heated when the topic of letting your hair go gray is broached (nevah, evah, letcha hair go gray) and even more fired up about swimwear (don't wear a bikini if your ass is as big as a truck).
I don't know about you, but I kind of want JoAnn to narrate a Toddlers & Tiaras episode and tell us what she thinks about those little outfits. I'm sure her style advice for those young ones would be priceless.
What do you think of JoAnn's tips?
