Covet this Book: Classy: Exceptional Advice for the Extremely Modern Lady

If Marie had had these funny essays and tips instead of stuffy ol' Comtesse de Noailles, maybe things would have been different.

Modern Maries should rejoice. Derek Blasberg, a very dapper gentleman who has written for Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar, has written a guide for women who need some extra help. Included in the illustrated, easy to read guide are topics such as:

  • Frenemies, Fair Weather Friends and Backstabbing Bitches
  • Say it, Don’t Sext it
  • The Allure of the Pole

Thankfully, he’s also included a chapter on how to sit correctly. As mistress of this blog and imaginary lady in waiting to a French queen who has long passed on, I am shocked by the number of knees that seem magnetically pulled in opposite directions. I took a count on the subway this morning and counted 6, yes six ladies who seemed to present their petite chou to a train of straphangers. Close your legs, ladies. I’m begging you.

Classy (Razorbill, 2010), $16.99

    Oh my goodness — I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen this on the subway! Thank you for saying what needs to be said!
