Being a Lady

For lack of something better on television, I am watching Legally Blonde on TBS.

With all of the pink Elle Woods wears, it made me think about what does it mean to be girlie? I think girlie is one thing - but what about Lady Like?

I like the idea of being "lady-like." Am I good at it? Hmmm..

If you asked me to describe what it means to be a lady and what would that look like, I would describe it with the following pictures.

I visualize - lace gloves, french twist, a string of pearls, a black pencil skirt, tea parties, garden parties, white bedding, simple diamond ear rings.. just see for yourself! In the comment section - tell me what you would add!

Coming live from Lady Bloggers... actually, if I might throw in a twist, I disagree with your assessment of what's "ladylike"... all of your examples sited what it means to be rich and conformist, but I think being a lady is something deeper than that. I think it has to do with an attitude, a way of speaking, a way of listening, a way of behaving, etc. There are poor ladies who work and don't buy themselves diamonds or manicures...

Classic NYer - This was a tongue - n - cheek look at what "lady like" looks like. I was bored. If you read more of my blogs, you will know 1. I do not have a lot of money and 2. I am the least pretentious person you will ever meet. Thank you for sharing your opinion and dropping by. I would certainly not want someone thinking negative things about what I posted (as a joke.) I am quite cynical - and it was fun.. a little google image search. Inspired by Legally Blond (gag!) ;-)
