Today we have three hints rolled up in one, which is: be more Lady-like.
"Fabrics should be the best you can afford because they stand up to hard usage without crushing or creasing..." The Lady. Travel Clothes by Alison Settle. 13th February, 1917
This link to The Lady (I enjoy alliteration very much) was prompted by my reading, yesterday, on a plane, Rachel Johnson's A Diary of The Lady about her first year and a half as editor of this legendary magazine. I used to pass by The Lady's office in Covent Garden and marvel at the preserved-in-aspic covers displayed in its windows. (And also make up Mills and Boon-inspired stories about answering an ad in the Lady, which would eventually result in a Brilliant Marriage and custody of a Great House somewhere (on reflection, perhaps more Barbara Cartland than Mills and Boon.)) Anyway, the book is very funny, an excellent companion on a journey and also confirms that people in real life do actually speak like characters in a Jilly Cooper novel.
