Every Fabulous Girl knows that elegant manners, proper thank-you notes, the perfect pair of shoes, and basic socialsavoir fairewill get you through many, if not most, of life's occasions. But what about those special situations that every girl encounters--the wince-inducing, hair-curling dilemmas and debacles that can rattle even the most fabulous woman to her core? For those times when perfect table manners won't save the day,The Fabulous Girl's Guide to Grace Under Pressureoffers a crash course in extreme etiquette--a scenario-by-scenario, must-have manual for surviving the stickiest, trickiest situations that come your way. What should you do if you catch your boyfriend in bed with another woman? What if that woman is your best friend?
