The Fabulous Girl's Guide to DecorumUnknown - 2001
A Primer for the Fabulous Girl in Training "You know the Fabulous Girl, don't you? She's Holly Golightly, the girl you must have at your cocktail party. She's smart, fun, stylish, and of course, beautifully well mannered. She's the friend who always knows when you need a shoe-shopping expedition to lift your spirits. She's the one who calls you after your disastrous dinner party and insists that she had a marvellous time. She's the girl you admire, the girl you want to be." From etiquette experts Kim Izzo and Ceri March comes the perfect book for perfect manners. Witty and playful, The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum provides invaluable advice for the thoroughly modern woman. The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum recognized the importance that work now plays in women's lives. Advice is offered on how to present yourself at an interview, how to socialize with workmates without breaching professional barriers, how to remain poised when overlooked for promotion, and how to maintain the respect and admiration of colleagues after you become the boss. Outside of the workplace, in a tart yet helpful tone, Izzo and Marsh address issues of urban life, friendship, family, entertaining, romance and sex (because we all know romance and sex are not the same). There are rules for conducting one-night stands, tips for balancing the demands of old friends and new lovers, suggestions for throwing the perfect dinner party and what to do when it all goes horribly wrong. Woven throughout the book is the story of the Fabulous Girl as she learns to glide gracefully through her days, vividly bringing to life the principles of decorum. As essential as her little black dress, and as elegant and practical, The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum is something no woman should be without. Beautifully designed in original trade paperback format with spot illustrations throughout, The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum is an ideal gift for weddings, graduations or celebrations of friendship.
