the art of being a dame

I came across these photographs taken by photographer Katie Lee which depict various old "lady" says. I thought they were fun so here they are followed by the caption found on Lee's flicker album:

a lady never leaves her home at night without a proper escort.

a lady always keeps her feet planted firmly on the ground.

a lady always wears white gloves on Sunday.

a lady never loses her temper.

a lady always uses the proper eating utensils. 

a lady sips never slurps.

a lady always sits with her legs crossed at the ankles.

and she Never slouches...

a lady glides gracefully across the room...

...always acutely aware of her surroundings.

a lady always knows her place... 

a lady never, Ever rests her elbows on the table.

a lady never cries over spilt milk

a lady always dresses for her body type...

...and never wears revealing clothing

a lady always practices good posture.

a lady always leaves one third of her food on her plate

a lady always keeps herself informed of popular music and plays...

...appearing cultured expands a lady's knowledge and interests, while opening doors to stimulating conversations with gentleman callers.

a lady always does whatever it takes to be a good host...

...and knows how to keep her guests entertained.

a lady always does her morning stretches... help maintain a healthy body and a quiet mind.

a lady always maintains complete composure...

...even in the most chaotic situations.
