One of my favorite books is called How to Be a Hepburn in a Hilton World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace.
On the very first page of her book, Jordan Christy makes a perfect point. She says, “Our current female landscape is embarrassing, flippant, and shallow. We need to start representing a new type of It Girl – a successful, stylish, smart girl who still maintains classic ideals and values.”
She is so right! In my time as a stylist I found that I could put new clothes on a person and they could look like a classy well-put-together female, but at the end of the day it’s only a shell… a shell that can be cracked with negative behaviors.
With that being said… I thought we could read the book together. We’ll follow Jordan Christy’s book which you can buy on Amazon for less than $12. Think of it kind of like your textbook and each month we’ll cover a new chapter. So, pick up the book and get ready because this is going to be good!
