What does it take to be a Southern Belle?!?!?!?

I know Southern Belles enter pageants, their shoppers, and they have that acsent, and they have money!!!

but what REALLY is a Southern Belle?!?! just curious!?!!!What does it take to be a Southern Belle?!?!?!?Real "Southern Belles" were upper-class Southern young women back in the Civil War/antebellum era. Have you seen Gone With the Wind? Scarlett O'Hara is the perfect portrayal of what a Southern Belle was. If you want some history on them, here's a Wiki article:鈥?/a>

Really, nowadays, a Southern Belle is more of a stereotype-a rich Southern young lady who generally you would think of as being Miss Alabama or Miss Georgia with that cute li'l Southern accent. My parents used to call me a Southern Belle when I was little since I was born in Texas, and my middle name- Michelle- rhymes with belle. Ha ha, hillarious, I know. lol.

Just for fun, here's some "tips" on how to be a southern belle-鈥?/a> .What does it take to be a Southern Belle?!?!?!?

i am from the south (SC) and sorry to break it to you...we arent like pageant girls...some people are preppy, others not so much.

I was a southern belle. Pagents and the whole nine yards! I was Miss Teen Texas, haha!

comming from OLD money in the south proper manners and all its a joke really down here we think most of the belles are spoild rich girls that really have nothing to offer the men but a pretty face and thats about it
It takes years of living in the south, being taught proper upbringing by your Grandmother and her lady friends, to be a proper southern lady.....real southern ladies aren't pageant queens........just everyday folks, who do things with style.....
