Stylish Sleuth Tips

22 Nov

During the month of November, while I’m participating in NaNoWriMo, a.k.a. trying to write 1,666 words or 6.6. pages per day, I’m featuring two weekly blogs based on the fabulous book, Clues for Real Life: The Classic Wit & Wisdom of Nancy Drew, compiled by Jennifer Fisher (used with permission).

“Whether you’re battling everyday villains, dating mysterious men, or just shopping for a fashionable frock, a few good clues for life are just what the modern woman needs.”

Stylish Sleuth Tips

Knowing what to wear (and what not to wear) is a valuable skill. Nancy Drew has an unerring sense of style, whether she’s searching for clues in spooky old mansions or donning a fabulous frock for a country club dance. But no matter how she’s dressed, when a mystery presents itself, she’s ready!

  • A fashion-conscious sleuth always puts on her robe and slippers before she investigates things in the middle of the night. The Secret of the Golden Pavilion.
  • A beret is the perfect accessory when you need to conceal a stash of secret clues. The Clue of the Broken Locket.
  • If you’re taken prisoner by thugs, unobtrusively knock off a button so that your rescuers will be able to better trace your whereabouts. The Quest of the Missing Map
  • To avoid being spotted by a plane overhead, pull up your sweater to mask your human form while lying on the ground. The Sky Phantom
  • A waterproof canvas bag makes a nice sleuth accessory when traveling by canoe. The Mystery at Lilac Inn.
  • Red lipstick makes a great window SOS when you’ve been kidnapped and stolen away on a plane. The Mystery of the Fire Dragon.
  • A smart sleuth keeps an overnight case in the trunk of her car with pajamas, a robe, two changes of clothes, toiletries, and at certain times of the year a bathing suit — in case of sudden adventures. The Bungalow Mystery

    You are reminding me of my love for Nancy Drew and many mysteries. I wanted to be Nancy Drew and even tried to write a mystery of my own where I could be the cool and clever sleuth.
