Well, I love funny books about lifestyle and this one is an old favorite that has been updated. The first book was "Princess Margaret will never be a Kappa Kappa Gamma". Being a Kappa in college, makes this book extra amusing. I love the quotes and the personality descriptions of women based on the silver pattern they select. A few priceless quotes:
SOUTHERN BELL RULES: " Never date your sorority sister's ex-husband until at least three years after the divorce. You might need her to write your daughter a Kappa Kappa Gamma recommendation one day. Just remember, it's a lot easier to find a new man than it is to get your daughter into Kappa."
SILVER PATTERNS: "Francis I: The belle who chooses Francis I is the girl who wants it all. There are 28 pieces of fruit just on the knife handle. It's showy and opulent and so is she. Francis I girls want a husband, children, a place on the board of the Junior League, and a full-time career."....
Here is a quote about the book:
"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."
Hope you find this book as amusing as I do.
