Rules every Southern young lady should know, love, and live by.
Head over to www.modernmagnolias.blogspot.com for this fun, free iPhone background. It’s not Christmas yet y’all…
I AM LITERALLY SO BEYOND EXCITED Y’ALL. SEE YA IN DECEMBER @trumanblack and @the1975. OMGAHHHH.
What is your reasoning behind being anonymous? I'm just curious about your reasoning behind choosing this platform versus one of personal disclosure.Anonymous
Actually, when I started writing rules (almost three years ago… good grief!!!), it was on my personal Tumblr page. After the first few went out and people started taking interest, I realized that coming from a person, these nuggets of advice would more than likely come off as harsh or ridiculous, instead of helpful and from a place of meaning well.
Another, very big reason, is that I am not perfect. I don’t follow all of these rules 100% of the time and I didn’t want this to become about catching me breaking “my own rules”…
And I wanted people to be comfortable coming to me for advice. While, more often than not, my life is a complete mess, I have always seemed to be able to offer pretty reasonable and solid advice to my friends and I wanted others to feel comfortable doing that. It’s much easier to take advice that way.
And another, somewhat selfish reason, is that I don’t necessarily want thousands and thousands of people knowing details about my life. I absolutely adore each and every one of y’all but I quite enjoy the anonymity of it. And it’s really fun to read all the theories and guesses as to who I am, what I do, what I probably wear, etc., etc., etc.
I have a respect for manners as such, they are a way of dealing with people you don’t agree with or like.
Where would you recommend getting a good peacoat that's under a couple hundred dollars?Anonymous
I love these from The Gap! These coats from Topshop are more “funky” but I think they are so fun!! I’m obsessed with the fun details on this one from American Eagle. And, as usual, I love love love Zara’s options.
I hope this helps :)
Casually obsessed with everything at the @hunterbellnyc trunk show y’all. I’m dying over that orange dress!!
No Glamour, no. We already covered this on @ModernMagnolias… www.modernmagnolias.blogspot.com #JustSayNOveralls
is it acceptable for an engaged southern woman , to agree to a buisness meeting with a single man , and have him pick her up from her home?Anonymous
I think if it is something you are questioning, don’t do it.
I will not answer dozens of questions regarding the no white after Labor Day rule or respond to needless hate on Southerners.
Everyone is entitled to their own opinion but I will not let this page be your forum. Take it somewhere else.
For the last time, if you choose to wear white after Labor Day, go for it. However, you are the one knowingly breaking the rule in the South. Do not get upset when you feel judged.
Also, if you take the time to come to this page to let me know how judgmental Southerners are over “trivial, antiquated rules,” I think you are being pretty hypocritical. So just stop.
Other than that, I love love love y’all for reading almost three years. It blows my mind every single day :)
Stay Southern y’all!
Regardless of the fact that the weather does not feel anything like fall, take the time to visit a pumpkin patch or a corn maze.
It’s fall, y’all!
Still so in love with the @burberry Prorsum SS14 finale y’all. Like how gorgeous is this picture?? #burberry #lfw #fashion
