Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me: A Guide to Living with Impeccable Grace & Style
Lucia van der Post has dispensed advice on style and living for more than three decades. Her subtlety, taste, common sense, confidence, and witty, aphoristic style have garnered her legions of fans, a must-read weekly style column in the Times of London, and a longtime perch at the top of UK lifestyle journalism. Things I Wish My Mother Had Told Me—a bestseller in the UK upon publication in fall 2007—is van der Post’s warm, intimate guide to living stylishly through personal elegance, grace, and glamour. Leaving no aspect of a woman’s life unconsidered, the browsable sections include How to Wear Clothes; How to Look Good; How to Work and Have a Life; Love, Marriage and Happiness; Perfect Presents; and Home, Sweet Home.
