Faking Fabulous At A Holiday Party

‘Tis the season to drag your tired but fabulous self to countless shindigs, soirees and to-dos, even though you would rather stay home and watch reruns of The Real Housewives. Here are some tips on faking fabulous at a party.
  • Like a breath of fresh air, never linger too long.
  • Perfect the infectious laugh. This requires very little effort and people will love you for it.
  • Make up stories about the origins of your jewelry. Suddenly your broach from The Limited is a family heirloom.
  • Bring a fabulous gift, preferably something from an exotic country with an interesting story. For example, “Rebel forces shot at me trying to get these precious spices.” Totally get said precious spices from The Fresh Market.
  • Be mysterious. Take a call from your cell-phone and speak in Russian.
  • Smell amazing. Always leave a room smelling better than when you entered.
  • Showcase your joie de vivre with a spontaneous tango or aria.
  • Make a grand exit. Think “So Long, Farewell” from The Sound Of Music.
  • For a hasty retreat you can always fake a seizure or fainting spell.
