Let’s learn the rules of the game. First of all, let me request you sharpen your scissors and remove all belt loops. Buttons are low cost tattletales. Be wary of wearing any accessories that you can’t handle. For emergencies, a tiny sewing kit should be on hand. Make a critical rundown of your imperfect features. Hold your stomach absolutely flat and tuck your buttocks in neatly. Pay attention to your shoulders. Pay attention to the condition of your shoes. Observe swimsuit ads and learn to stand gracefully with your knees together. Practice sitting and standing in front of a full-length mirror until you are certain that you place your legs in their most becoming positions. And please don’t wear a fur piece. Take a good look at your hemline. Skirts should be worn modestly short. No Kitty Foyle costumes permitted! Make certain to remember that nothing is forever except that you are a woman. Do look crisp and tidy, but not unfeminine. Take and make the time to beautify all parts of your body. But go a little easy on the eye-goo. Makeup should be applied to dramatize the eyes and lips, but not to give the effect of a lady spy. Don’t laugh… there are such things.
