New Book: Classy by Derek Blasberg
I came across a blurb about Classy on a blog and there were several quotes from this book that caught my attention:
A lady does not wish to be defined by her purchases.
A lady understands that just because people think she can afford expensive things does not mean they think she deserves them.
A lady, if she desires a designer item, will work hard and pay for the authentic version.
A lady is careful with her words, even the nasty ones.
A lady doesn't substitute inventions for face-to-face touch and communication.
A lady is never worried about possessing intelligence. Being coquettish or dainty for the sake of being dainty are ideas that smart women know are archaic.
A lady knows not to answer her phone at a fashion show. Ever.
No matter how often we hear this type of etiquette advice ( re: the Kate Spade Books from a few years ago), I'm still a big fan of these types of books! My advice: you can never be too classy!!
