Rules every Southern young lady should know, love, and live by.
I love wearing wallabees but I have no idea how I should style them! Do you have any suggestions? Thanks!Anonymous

You southerners are so judgmental!!!Anonymous
Yep. We’re definitely the only judgmental people to e v e r exist…
I absolutely love Wallabees and my friend Lanie has put together three fabulous outfits to go with these comfortable shoes.
Hi! I follow you on twitter and I also live in SC (Cola). I saw how upset you were about the phillip lim collection being out of stock. I bought two bags (the big and medium one) in black because I couldn't decide which one I wanted. I am probably going to return the medium one but if you would like it we could meet at target in Columbia and after I return it you can just re-buy that bag. I know it may be a bit of a hassel for you but without your posts I wouldn't have known about the bags!Anonymous
This is SO sweet of you!! Luckily, I found two fabulous bags… finally. Haha. Thank you SO SO SO much for thinking of me though!!!
Still the best music to put on for productivity.
My argument for the labor day rule: If antebellum belles could put their white away after Labor Day when they wore 20 lbs more clothes than belles wear today and there wasn't even air conditioning yet, so can we. The "it's so hot in the south" excuse should not be acceptable for wearing white after Labor Day. We work in air conditioned buildings, drive in air conditioned cars, and we wear half the heavy fabric antebellum women wore. Peach colored pants won't kill anyone.Anonymous
What's included in your stack? How much is too much?Anonymous
I actually don’t wear a stack or “arm party.” I injured my left arm a few years ago and couldn’t wear anything on my arm without it going numb :( I still don’t love having things moving up and down on my wrist.
I do have a Michael Kors watch that I wear most days. On occasion, I wear a couple of Kate Spade bangles or a strand of pearls.
As far as too much, I think more than three or four is unnecessary. I think a good rule of thumb is after you put everything on, take one thing off :)
What are you opinion on heels? I think they look great but personally I cannot walk in them to save my life. Do they always hurt so much when you wear them and do you just fight through the pain? Do you have any tips on how to learn to walk in them? Thank you!Anonymous
I love love love high heels! I think breaking them is very important, though. When you get a new pair of heels, wear them around the house- washing dishes, doing laundry, vacuuming, whatever. Get your feet used to them before taking them out on the town :)
When is it appropriate to star wearing cheetah print again? It just seems like a winter print to me!Anonymous
I think cheetah/leopard print are kind of the “new black” in that they’re a neutral. Go for it!
what is your opinion of monogramming hunter rainboots w/ decals? tacky or cute?Anonymous
It’s not my favorite. I don’t think it’s necessarily tacky but a little too much.
Obviously white bottoms, shoes, and dresses are a no-no in the winter. But what do you think about a simple white top, with, say, navy or dark green bottoms? I've always been unsure about this one.Anonymous
I think white tops are fine!
I'm going to a wedding in the beginning of October, but I haven't been to a wedding in years! I have absolutely no idea what to wear, from colors to type of dress and shoes. It'll be in South Carolina, so the weather shouldn't be too bad. Please help!Anonymous
Wedding attire usually depends on location/setting and time of day. For an afternoon wedding, a simple dress and flats would probably be fine.
If it’s an evening wedding, I would opt for heels.
I hope this helps!! Feel free to email me with any further questions at rulesforbelles(at)gmail(dot)com :)
