Wonderful Reminders for Elegance





In 2004 the very talented Kate Spade wrote wonderful books. They were called Manners, Style and Occasions. In each book Kate gave wonderful notes, ideas and suggestions on how to accomplish each of this items.

I purchased her book called "Style" a couple of years ago. It talked about everything from travel, to colors, posture and wardrobe classics. It has been a great addition to my library.

Recently, I remembered her other book called "Manners". I decided to jump on Amazon and take a peek at it and ended up purchasing it right away. I am excited to read it and will share some tips from it once I receive it.




I did however ended up seeing this list in her book and wanted to share it....


10 Gentle Reminders

~ Making others feel at ease is the essence of etiquette, yesterday and today

~ There are few words more elementary or more welcomed than please and thank you

~ Good moods are contagious. Hopefully, yours will be pleasantly catching

~ Be aware and considerate of personal space- physical, visual and aural

~ Showing respect is a gift, one that costs nothing and is endlessly appreciated

~ Think of your tone of voice as a telegraph. To the listener, it speaks volumes

~ A short fuse does nothing but burn. Should you find yourself with one, steer clear of others

~ Never underestimate the message that's sent by your poise and your posture

~ Clothes count. Appropriate attire is not only respectful , it's refreshing 

~ Let common sense by your guide and graciousness your goal
