In a society driven by celebutante news and myspace profiles, women of class, style and charm are hard to come by. The Audrey and Katharines of the world continue to lose their luster as thongs, rehab and outrageous behavior burn up the daily headlines. But, despite appearances, guys still want a girl they can take home to their mom, employers still like to see a tailored suit and peers still respect classy conduct. So is it possible to maintain old fashioned virtues in a modern world without looking like a starchy Amish grandma? Christy shows women how in this guide to glamorous style, professional success and true love...the classy way.
Full of fun assignments, notable names and real-life examples, Christy offers a new look at seemingly "old fashioned" advice. She covers diet, speech, work ethic, friends, relationships, manners, makeup, and fashionable yet modest clothing, showing modern ladies how they can be beautiful, intelligent and fun while retaining values and morals.
Very cute book!
This would be a great read for a young teen, all kinds of helpful advice and encouragement not to follow the crowed and how to be a classy respected young woman. I'm 21 so most of this stuff I've already figured out but it was still a humorous and entertaining read! I finished it in a couple of days. Definitely recommend it!
Reminder on class
Good reminder on how to stay a classy lady. Book gets a little slow toward the end. But a fun gift to give to single girlfriends
A Little too Much?
Although the overall message is a positive one, Jordan Christy might be taking it too far. The examples are endless as are the comparisons. Instead of talking about the points for so long, it would have been better to have more points. Christy is also very critical of what she calls "stupid girls." She tears down the female sex almost as much as she builds it up.
