Who is the elegant woman?

'How to be elegant?' is a question many women ask.

Welcome to The Elegant Woman, a gentle guide for women to timeless chic, grace and poise. It is a personal insight into the art of refinement and living graciously.

Here is a picture of me in an advertorial.

The Elegant Woman website is the result of an on-going study on 'How To Be Elegant' and on being absolutely lovely.

It is splattered with sassy tips of obtaining a little joie de vivre - the joy of living well, and with simple everyday elegance.

How did this site come about?

Well, it started years ago in a journal where I wrote down notes and thoughts about the art of living elegantly. This helped my aspiration to become woman I dreamt to be. Years later, I decided to transfer those notes to this site and continue here.

While 'How To Be An Elegant Woman' is my theme, it merely serves as a framework of the interests of other like-minded women.

I'm looking a little dazed here.

I enjoy reading, researching, reflecting and draw my lessons on books, history and interviews.

Elegance is a way of life, and I try to live my life as elegantly as possible.

Though I may not have arrived, I believe my education of this way of life is a work in progress. I am still finding my way and I write about it here.

Regardless of how you may feel, if you have desire, you can become the woman you dream to be. And you do, because you're still here! It is never too late to be what you thought you could have been.

Most of all, I hope that these pages are a source of love and encouragement.
