Description

'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, sophisticated, 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.' The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum is an entertaining, stylish and thoroughly modern guide to manners. It offers invaluable advice on workplace etiquette and how to maintain the admiration and respect of your colleagues, entertaining (including how to throw the perfect dinner party and what to do if it all goes horribly wrong), sex and romance (which we all know aren't necessarily the same thing), dealing with one-night-stands, modern marriage and divorce, friendship and fashion. Woven throughout this wealth of witty advice is the story of the Fabulous Girl herself as she learns to glide gracefully through her days. The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Decorum is as essential as a little black dress - elegant, practical and something no woman of today should be without!show more
