Artful Living


My Mother always told me that in her day, glamourous parties were referred to as “affairs.” (Affairs were something you attended and not had.) She also alluded that to stand out in class, one needed to be a “class act.” Words such as demure, sophisticated, elegant, classy and ladylike have always been part of my Mother’s vernacular.

Every generation has something to gleam from it and I love mad men for the artfully staged fashions. I am mad about “Trudy” and her look. Is she not the epitome of a classy lady, one of formidible style and grace? Tell me, what are some trademarks of “classy” in your book?
