Literary Debutante Ball Fashion Advice: Etiquette Advice We Can All Actually Use

“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness.  For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.  For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.  For beautiful hair, let a child run his/her fingers through it once a day.” – Audrey Hepburn. I would add: then take a shower, eat a hoagie and throw some lip-gloss on, because no one wants to be the starving, bleeding-lipped weirdo with kid junk in her hair.

From Marie-Helene Bertino’s Literary Debutante Ball Fashion Advice, where she also gives this wise nugget:

“Stop talking about your phone.” – One Clue to Becoming an Interesting Person, Marie-Helene Bertino


And, for those not yet an interesting person, this would include iPads, laptops, book-readers, tablets and other tech gadgets. Wait to be asked — and even then, keep it short.
