To Be A Lady


To Be A Lady
Women's suffrage movement occurred in 1848
Women's right to vote was granted in 1920
A lady has an image to project
As per Emily Post Etiquette
A modern woman is independent
Capable
Discreet
Respectful< br>Sexy and alluring
Graceful
Polite

To Be A Lady
Heels add height
Amazing I was able to walk and dance
Cosmetics brings out my features
Enhancing my beauty
The color flight perle #830 nail polish adds shimmer
For my petite hands
A velvet dress skirt feels natural
Tights provide warmth from the bitter cold
Jewelry transforms the plainness into glamorous
A matching bracelet with necklace made a difference

To Be A Lady
A broken finger nail
Cramped achy feet from stiletto heels
An irritated eye from improperly applying eye liner
Sufferings endured
No pain, no gain

To Be A Lady
A complete make-over transformation
A pleasure to glow as a lady
Enduring the struggles, a modern woman blooms
Champagne Rose blossoms

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is overruled by fate.
When two are stripped, long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should love, the other win;
