The southern belle existed in the early south, a product of opulence and the luxury that slavery allowed.

That's why I said it's updated.

Antiques? Try lipo and boob jobs. Target? Like that's somehow different than Wal-Mart? Ohhhh. It is in the mind of a *true* southern belle??

Where do you think the grand dames of the south go if the divorce settlement doesn't go their way? Oh. Let's call it a "manufactured home" since no self-described southern belle ever lived in a trailer.

Except for very old, very exclusive money in some of the true old south cities, the definition of a southern belle has changed. That was the lame point of my lame attempt at humor. I forgot, you can't joke around much on these forums.
I'm not nit picking. Its just you're describing good 'ol gals.

Those aren't Southern belle-isms.



The modern Southern belle exists fine off the plantation . They still make their debutes. Many of the older southern belles still wear lots of perfume and white gloves and pearls. They call their fathers "daddy". (Especially when they ask for his credit card).... They enter beauty pageants. Lots and lots of them. They go to the following Schools : Mary Baldwin College, Sweet Briar, and Hollins. When they go they bring their horses with them. They belong to the Country Club. Tinsley Mercer Mortimer is a prime example of the modern Southern belle. I know what southern belles are because I dated one, and my mother was one. She was the complete opposite of a chain smoking Walmart hopping trailer park queen.
