Up Close | Lizzie Post
There’s no point in being best-dressed if you don’t act accordingly.
Manners make a lady, but in the modern (read: digital) age we’ve found that there are too many social arenas in which etiquette standards have yet to be established. To help us all out, we enlisted Lizzie Post, great-great-granddaughter of the etiquette guru Emily Post and reigning trusted source for etiquette advice.
We live by her three books: Emily Post’s Etiquette, 18th edition (answers questions like; “Is it rude to tweet at a wedding?” “When is it okay to unfriend someone on Facebook?” “How can I become an online dating pro?”), Great Get-Togethers (must-read chapters include How to Be Party Ready Anytime, Fabulous Food & Drinks, and Classics with a Twist), and How Do You Work This Life Thing? (dealing with roommates, proper protocol for the workplace, how to behave on dates and everything else that falls under the ever-so-general category of “adult life”).
We love Lizzie because she’s not the prim and proper little miss you might expect. She likes to joke around (when appropriate) and lives a life that we can all relate to. In college when friends would vent to her about etiquette problems, it became apparent that it was time to join the family business. A lot has changed since her great-great-grandmother wrote Etiquette in Society, in Business, in Politics, and at Home in 1922, but, as Lizzie likes to point out, principles around problem solving, relationship building and treating people with respect are timeless.
We thought it would be fun for her to host a monthly Q&A session on The Juicy to ensure that our beloved Couturists are equally well-behaved. She kindly accepts and looks forward to addressing your inquiries. So start thinking of questions, (and check out KPCC‘s The Dinner Party Download, where Lizzie is a frequent guest, to get the juices flowing).
Together we’ll master the art of manners for the modern world.
