My sweet blog friend, Beaufort Belle, of The Beaufort Lookout, crowned me a socialite in the Preppy Mafia. Part of the initiation to the PM is that you have to, of course, follow the rules!
Rule #1: Click the above button and paste onto your blog/website.

Rule #2: Answer the below questions.

Rule #3: Pass onto 10 bloggers that you Love, go to their blog and let them know they've been tagged.

1. Who is your style icon?
I have a very classic, simple style. I could wear a black dress, or a Lilly every day! The only peices of jewerly I enjoy wearing are my pearls, the beautiful gold, and diamond bracelets and ring that my mother gave me when I turned 16, and 21 (they have been in the family for a long time, and I just love them!), and of course, my Meredith Onyx! I am not very trendy. Jackie O, my mother, Grace Kelly, Lilly Pulitzer, and Audrey Hepburn are all my style icons.

2. What is your favorite socialite lit book?
I add a new Etiquette Book to my collection every chance I get! I currently have 54 on the shelf that I have read and highlighted. My personal favorites are...Social Climbers by Beth Dunn, of course. Also, I love Kate Spade Manners, Style, and Occasions, The Preppy Handbook, What Would Jackie Do?, What Would Audrey Do?, The ONE Hundred, A Privilaged Life, Emily Post (any edition I can get my hands on!), G.R.I.T.S. Series, the list just goes on...

3. Favorite party theme?
Derby Party...there's nothing like a great Derby Party!

4. Go to Halloween costume?
Welfare Barbie, "Katie Cottontail"(S'cuse me, I was just trying to be Elle Woods, not a playboy bunny!), or the infamous inflatable Sumo Wrestler!

5. Extravagance you cannot live without?
My pearls, and my Meredith Onyx.

6. Living person you admire?
"All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother."
She is such a graceful, strong, & absolutely beautiful person! I am so blessed to have such a wonderful mother!

7. Greatest Fear?
Losing someone I love.

8. Trait you deplore in yourself?
OMG, I cannot sing, but God knows I try...I try hard! I think a lot of people "deplore" that! HAHA!

9. Which talent would you most like to have?
I would just love to be able to help more people. I love to listen to others, but people don't really know that about me. I would love to have the talent of being able to help others in a better way!

10. Greatest achievement?
My career, and the steps I am taking to get there...I haven't actually achieved it yet!
