***"A dandy (also known as a beau or gallant) is a man who places particular importance upon physical appearance, refined language, and leisurely hobbies, pursued with the appearance of nonchalance in a cult of Self. Historically, especially in late 18th- and early 19th-century Britain, a dandy, who was self-made, often strove to imitate an aristocratic lifestyle despite coming from a middle-class background."
***Definition taken from Wikipedia
‘The Little Dandy’ is the girl who was always a little bit boyish but wanted to be pretty.
Unlike the textbook Dandy, 'the little dandy' is a smallish girl with impeccable taste.
She comes off as laid back and boyish, yet places a particular importance upon her physical appearance, refined lingo, and leisurely hobbies – all pursued with an air of nonchalance. She is the epitome of effortless cool & beauty. She is all these things, and completely self-made. She looks effortlessly chic and put-together. She is easy-going with a dainty demeanor and worries naught, despite coming from a middle-class background.
In a nutshell, this blog is a lazy girl's bible on looking fantastic for cheap.
