During the twenties, thirties, and forties, when the good life was portrayed on the silver screen in glorious black and white, the highest compliment you could pay a woman was to call her “a swell dame.” It was an accolade not easily bestowed; beauty, glamour, money, fame, or social position couldn’t guarantee being considered swell.

Gee, you’re swell…

A swell dame lit up every room she entered because of her irresistible lightness of being, which is why Life always seemed like a romantic comedy, even when it wasn’t.  Think Myrna Loy’s arched eyebow wit in the Thin Man movies, Constance Bennett’s insouciant supernatural naughtiness in Topper, or Carole Lombard’s sophisticated screwball sexiness in My Man Godfrey.

You’re cordially invited to join our official Swell Dames Club, by signing up for our mailing list! 

We’ll share words of encouragement and wisdom through the trailblazers who have gone before and know a thing or two that we might find handy today.  In fact, I believe this is the best Swell Dames Club ever assembled.  We’ve got Women with a Past, Girls Old Enough to Know Better, the “It” Girls and now, you and me.

So here’s the plan.  How about a little private tutorial?  Along with me, be willing to learn one fascinating thing each month that intrigues.  Something you’ve wanted to know how to do but never got around to learning.  Something that sounds like so much fun you can’t wait to nail it.  Something that makes you stand a little taller, smile a little broader, laugh a little louder and relax a whole lot more because you’re a confident woman who can rise to any occasion with great style and Spirit. With a Swell Dame’s insider knowledge, the world becomes your oyster; what’s more, you won’t look idiotic eating it.  As for those little pearls of wisdom, let’s just say you have never looked better, Babe.  Nothing in the world is as irresistible as a woman who keeps them guessing.

So sign up, and spread the word. Looking forward to sharing the fun with you!
