How to be a Lady: 3 Helpful Hints

marie_from_the_aristocatsI absolutely adore the Disney movie The Aristocats.The cutest kitty in that movie is little Marie. Her best line in the movie is “Ladies don’t start fights but they can finish them!” This prompted me to write a short post on what it truly means to be a lady. We are all born girls but only a few of us manage to become ladies. Here are a few lady-like standards true ladies should adhere to.

Rule 1: Ladies really don’t start fights

This little lady was right- ladies don’t start fights. They can exchange words but hair pulling and wrestling each other doesn’t do much for the reputation¬†of the¬†women engaging in the argument. People can have disagreements but they have to remain civilized in polite company.

Rule 2: The shorter the hemline, the smaller the heel

You all know what I’m talking about. You see it at the clubs and bars; the girls with hemlines that may as well not exishow_to_be_a_ladyt and heels that give her another 6 inches of height (or maybe it’s the bump-it in her hair). Ladies, if you’re going to wear a short dress, then please wear a kitten heel. Those stilettos look amazing, believe me I understand, but with the hemline being so high, just refrain from wearing them. We are ladies, not adult performers.

Rule 3: Avoid crass language

I knew one girl who was so classy to look at but when she opened her mouth it was so disappointing. If you find yourself inserting a curse word into every other sentence you speak, then I’d say you need to work on that. In my opinion, people who use curse words abusively in conversation aren’t intelligent to find other words that could convey the same meaning but more eloquently.
