Welcome, to Grace & Poise.
Grace as defined in the Webster’s dictionary is: “The manner, deportment or language which renders a person appropriate and agreeable, suitable and elegant with appropriate dignity.” Poise is a word which is more difficult to define, but the same source explains it in the context of “weight and balance” with a focus on balance.
If you have ever had the fortune of meeting or associating with individuals, who indeed exhibit the qualities of Grace & Poise, you would no doubt understand and appreciate the real meaning much better than mere words can describe.
Into a society where true Grace & Poise is rarely seen, we wish to present this humble website to share with you a guide to maintaining Grace & Poise in your everyday situations.
You will notice that we often use photographs of Crown Princess Mary of Denmark to clarify the intent of our articles. We offer no apologies for this, since most would agree Princess Mary is herself a living personification of GRACE & POISE.
There is another good reason for the use of these photographs, and that is the Danish Royal Watchers have given us permission to use the photographs on the Grace & Poise website. (A special thank you goes to gigi and lotte, the contributors of Danish Royal Watchers.)
We believe that everyone, but in particular young ladies and women, could enhance their surroundings with a touch of Grace & Poise in their lives, and we hope that you can gain some benefit from the articles presented.
We welcome any questions and comments. Please feel free to contact us.
