Class, dignity, and beauty.

Contrary to popular belief, being born in a Southern state does not make a woman into a Southern belle. Neither a perfectly clean home nor a juicy rum cake can transform someone into the ideal form of a Southern woman.

A girl needs three things before she can be the ultimate Southern lady, and they are class, dignity, and beauty.

Now, no one is born with these things. You develop these over time, through your family and friends, the choices you make, and the way you live. These are things that come from your brain and your heart, and shine through. These traits are exhibited in daily life.

I’m not saying the South doesn’t have any bad eggs.

I’m just saying it’s less likely.
