Info



"When a girl will take the trouble to prepare herself to be entertaining, gay and amusing, she will not lose many dates by not petting." (1941)
Sheila Norgate's Storm Clouds Over Party Shoes: Etiquette Problems for the Ill Bred Woman (Press Gang $18.95) is a comic compilation of 'the rules' from women's magazines of the 1930s through 1950s, with advice for the modern woman in every situation.
"Even when you aren't having a good time it helps to look as though you were. Try to appear happy and nonchalant. Very few boys like earnest looking girls."
