When being introduced to a new person, stand, look them in the eye, give your name and extend your hand with a smile. Remember the hand should clasp the others hand at the web between the thumb and first finger. If a person is being introduced to a group, you do not need to stand but later take the opportunity to greet them with your name and extend your hand. A firm hand shake is preferable. After grasping the hand pump two or three times. Don’t continue pumping. Your first handshake is usually what you are remembered for. Make it memorable.
Femininity – Enjoy being who you are.
Being feminine does not mean we have to wear little girl dresses that look like doll clothes or dresses long to the ground with a high neck and long sleeves and ruffles around the neck. We do not have to dress a certain way that meets “someone else’s standard” for how they think we should look.
We are individuals. We want to look stylish, attractive, and we want to feel comfortable and that we are modest.
Things to think about.
Is it okay for our middle to show?
How about underwear? Is it okay for the lines to show?
How low is too low for tee-shirts?
How low is too low for jeans?
How short is appropriate for a skirt? (Remember it rises four more inches when sitting.)
Can fun be had when we are modestly and fully clothed?
Is it a mandate to conform to Society’s standard in wardrobes?
Does our outward dress demonstrate to the world what is on the inside? Character? Values? Beliefs?
Do we dress to complement our body?
Do we dress to get attention?
Who do we dress for?
Enjoy being who you are.
