How to Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace by Jordan Christy

How to Be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World: The Art of Living with Style, Class, and Grace by Jordan Christy


About:

Though fashions may change, certain things never go out of style--like your favorite little black dress that can take you from a business meeting to a dinner party to a night on the town. But what makes it work is not the dress, it's how you present yourself while wearing it. A woman who is polite, well spoken, gracious, charming, and thoughtful is always welcome-though such women appear to be in short supply these days! Despite the headline-grabbing antics of certain flashy celebutantes, most of us would rather have respect--for ourselves and from our family, friends, and colleagues.

In this fully revised and updated edition, you will learn how to:
Appear polished without sacrificing your personal style,
Develop skills and discover interests to boost your self-confidence,
Find your true friendships and make them stronger,
Date Mr. Right instead of hooking up with Mr. Right Now,
Land the perfect internship and your first job,
Have a fun night without the risk of a social media faux pas.

With this insightful guide you'll be loving life with style, class, and grace in no time!
 



My Thoughts:

In a world where today's fashion was yesterday's gossip, do you ever find yourself asking the question where to do I fit in? Am I enough? Is it okay just to me? Of course the answer is always , "yes." But in a world where we are bombarded with media, images and being told we aren't good enough, we often wonder if we should stand apart. If you've ever struggled to be who you are, you've found the right book. "How to be a Hepburn in a Kardashian World" by Jordan Christy is about having respect where often women throw it away like yesterday's fashion. This isn't one of those books about women standing up for themselves and they saying they are better than men, this about women understanding that they are precious, they should not throw themselves away on the culture of  today's society because that is the image the world is throwing our way. Jordan gives advice on how to have grace in modest attire, social media etiquette, how to work hard, being modest in beauty and having wonderful friendships. This book is tasteful like a big sister talking to her younger sisters in a graceful way and is perfect for anyone entering the workforce. It would be a great gift for a teenager or a woman of any age looking to having a little more style and class in their life. Not all patterns are in ladies and not all friends are in either, so choose wisely! This book was great and I will refer to it from time to time. I really enjoyed this book. I give this book 5/5 stars and a favorable review was not required. Thank you to Center Street for providing me a complimentary copy.
