Leave A Gift For The Host, Not A Lip Print
December 12, 2008
Don't get so jolly this season that you forget to mind your manners. This week we went through a refresher course in decorum, with some products to prevent social gaffes.
When someone goes to the trouble of frosting your name on a Christmas cookie or mixing up 45 gallons of spiked eggnog, a hostess gift is in order. Show the love with a token of appreciation like this Maria Evora carob-mineral cameo soap.
You want your coworkers murmurring about your professional prowess, not the thigh-high boots and belly-baring getup you wore to the office mixer. A satin dress with a reverse v-neck shows that you're elegant, not easy.
Kisses should live on in the memory, not on the face. This kiss-proof lipstick stays on you and off everyone else.
Limping isn't sexy. Slipping your shoes off in the corner isn't appropriate. When you're painting the town red (and green), you need footwear (like these Harriet t-Strap sandals ) that won't mangle your feet.
