Présentation de l'éditeur

Who knows what lurks in the hearts of the women of Dixie? A Southern Belle Primer tells us all. In this rollicking guide to survival in a society that has not gone with the wind, the mystique of the Southern belle is exposed. Maryln Schwartz’s cult classic and perennial bestseller returns with a new look to steer the next generation of belles through the enduring world of Southern propriety and protocol.

Being a belle is not a part-time job—it’s a cradle-to-grave commitment—and A Southern Belle Primer covers it all. With anecdotes, observations, lists, and delightful illustrations, the Primer delves into family trees, big hair, the Twelve Patterns of the Silver Zodiac (everyone knows girls who choose certain silver patterns are fast), the fashion calendar (the do-or-die seasonal etiquette of patent leather, gloves, and stockings), honorary belles, wannabe belles, fallen belles, and even why Paris Hilton will never be a Kappa Kappa Gamma.

The Primer also reveals shocking real-life stories from contemporary Southern belle history: the truth behind the Garden Club wars in Natchez, Mississippi, the Chattanooga woman shunned by society for a faux pas in her chicken salad recipe, and the disastrous white-shoe-in-September affair during the Texas visit of Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

What The Official Preppy Handbook did for the madras-and-penny-loafer set A Southern Belle Primer does for the indestructible ladies from below the Mason–Dixon Line, in an uproarious guide to navigating a society that continues to fascinate people the world over.

Terrific Read 11 avril 2008
Par Kay S. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
This is the 5th one I've purchased for my daughters and neices. My mother being a belle herself from New Orleans, I was raised on these principles. What a delightful way to pass down this knowledge to my girls. Its a fast and hysterical read, we laughed so hard on our trip to Atlanta we had to pull over. I recommend this for any lady who lives below the Mason Dixon line.

Disguised as Humor 19 septembre 2007
Par K. Miller - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I loved this book when it came out in 1990 (right?). I see it has been somewhat updated. It contains very helpful, true information. I just wish it wasn't all disguised as humor. Many of my friends didn't like this book because they thought it was making fun of us.

I wasn't a Kappa Kappa Gamma, but... 25 septembre 2012
Par Margarita - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
After my father died in April of 2002, my mother and I drove to the Alabama coast to take a break from eighteen months of stress and sorrow. Mom bought two copies of the original book in Natchez, Mississippi and that night we laughed ourselves silly reading it out loud- the first wholehearted laughter we'd shared in a long time. The silverware Zodiac almost did us Acorn Pattern girls in and for the record, I put dark meat in my chicken salad and y'all can discuss me if you like.

My mother died eighteen months after my father. Her copy of this book now rests in my bookcase and her silverware is in my china cabinet. Whenever I get to missing her, I make myself some chicken salad and ice tea, pull the Southern Belle Primer out for company, and laugh all over again. I swear I can hear her own laughter as well.

SAME BOOK--DIFFERENT COVER 3 janvier 2007
Par Kacky - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I THOUGHT I WAS PURCHASING A NEW RELEASE BOOK. IT IS THE SAME BOOK PUBLISHED AS A SOUTHERN BELLE PRIMER OR WHY PRINCESS MARGARET WILL NEVER BE A KAPPA KAPPA GAMMA. THERE ARE A FEW PARAGRAPHS THAT HAVE BEEN CHANGED TO REFLECT PARIS HILTON RATHER THAN PRINCESS MARGARET. THE ORIGINAL BOOK WAS A "5", BUT I AM DISAPPOINTED THAT I SPENT MONEY FOR THE SAME BOOK.

Good Overview of Southern Ways 1 août 2007
Par L. Lynn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
This is the same basic book as, "Why Princess Margaret will never be a Kappa..."
It offers good insight into Southern women/culture in a lighthearted way.
Great for someone moving to the South or a young woman going to college in the South for the first time.
Easy and fun to read.
