We Americans are such complex little creatures. Our culture eschew's formality. Yet we're the first to "ooh & ahh" at beautiful formal decor. And we (like England) love our Downton Abbey, which gives homage to an earlier & rigidly formal social structure, not to mention eating & dining structure. Take note dearies.
Please make a decision, as indecision is a bore.
If you love formality, live it. If you love slovenliness then....claim it I guess. But I know as do you, that if you transpose your imaginings for your reality you won't look, live, work, carry yourself, (& most importantly for this blog) eat or dine in the same way ever again. Therefore, I'm about to
let your imagination be inspired. The transposing is up to you.
