Excerpt from Decorum: A Practical Treatise on Etiquette and Dress of the Best American Society
Nature is always graceful; fashion, with all her art and glitter can never produce anything half so pleas ing. The very perfection of elegance is to imitate nature; how much better to have the reality than the imitation. Anxiety about the opinions of others always fetters our freedom and tends to awkwardness. We would always appear well if we never tried to assume what we do not possess.
