It is surmised that riches equal elegance. This is simply not the case. Elegance may be studied if the woman was not raised with lessons in manners or style. The study of elegance is not limited to social class or endless bank accounts. It is the determination to become a lady of gentle nature whose kindness, grace, and style reflect the subtlety of quality. One does not need a vast amount of funding to accomplish this task. An elegant woman need only to be quietly frugal with her funds so as to buy quality pieces of clothing and home decor. Quantity is never elegant but a small number of quality items reflects her conscientious and responsible nature. The less one has, the less one has to manage. The elegant woman keeps things simple as well as efficient by taking great care of a few fine things. Worn or broken items that may not be mended well are to be replaced as soon as she is financially able to do without compromising the family bank account. She does not run up her credit buying needless things to satisfy her inhibitions. Planning well her wardrobe as well as her household buying she is rewarded with an outstanding reputation as well as a peaceful home.
