Wearing clothes today, by any chance?

Returning for a moment to the mannerly encyclopedia that is Amy Vanderbilt: In every edition of this fine volume there is an extensive chapter on appearance, hygienics, personal upkeep, and wardrobe choices. As many times as I have read these pages, I have to admit that a more concise and modern set of suggestions was not the product of Ms. Vanderbilt at all, but of Edna Woolman Chase in Always in Vogue.

I beg of you, if you are going to wear clothing today, to kindly read this marvelous post at An Aesthete's Lament.
