Emily Posts

“Clothes not only add to our appearance; they are our appearance.  The first impression that we make upon others depends entirely upon what we wear and how we wear it… What makes a brilliant party?  Clothes.  Good clothes.  A frumpy party is nothing more nor less than a collection of badly dressed persons.”

Emily Post on “The Clothes of a Lady,” 1922

    Katie, I am wild for these “Emily Posts”! It’s definitely with a mix of love and horror that I read Ms Post, but I can’t resist!

    Lena — Glad you like them : ) I understand the mix of ‘love and horror’ — though much of her advice is still applicable, much of it also, these days, is to be taken with a grain of salt.

    I actually just picked up a few of Emily Posts books from the library this afternoon for research of sorts. I’m pretty excited to read one of her books and see what tidbits I come away with.
