Finished June 20th!!!

When I first saw this book on the bookshelf, I thought, is Kate Spade an expert when it comes to manners?  I know she has gorgeous accessories, I am a fan of her latest flame red Maise handbag, and I wore a pair of her beautiful bowtie peep toe shoes on my wedding day, but are these the signs of an etiquette specialist?  Maybe so!

At a glance the book cover is sleek and bright, each page has colorful chic pictures, and the topics are short and to the point.  Ms. Kate covers everyday situations from social flops and gracious recoveries, the power of written letters and artful conversations, travel tips, handling the cell phone era, embarrassing maneuvers, dress etiquette and disasters, and being a “good sport”.  I found the book, on everyday manners, to be things I already knew, but a good reminder to see in print.  It’s an entertaining whimsical read with witty humor along the way.  It’s no Emily Post or Judith Martin when it comes to etiquette teaching, but if you are looking to brush up on a few manners or just curious, I’m a little of both, then on one of these hot summer days, this whimsy informative read might just be for you!

Kate Spade has three lifestyle books “Manners”, “Style” and “Occasions”.  I’ve just purchased the “Occasions” book!   Probably need to brush up on my entertaining skills and I’m sure my style needs a little help too.  If you want to buy it, click on the book above!

Do you have an etiquette faux pas?  My public cell phone manners definitely need some special attention!  What about you?  I would love to hear about it.

Until next ride,

Amy
