Welcome to Positively Proper!

Hey y’all!

I am Alexandra and I am so excited to be sharing this adventure in “adulting” with you. I am taking a bit of a different perspective on this by connecting you with my every day life to show how etiquette and protocol are truly about putting your best foot forward and being confident as you do. As a former Protocol Specialist now working in the world of special events, I have seen etiquette and protocol applied in every day life to make a difference at work, at home, with friends, and even during interactions with strangers. Not to mention, the deep roots of etiquette and protocol apply to social events, being a host, dating, fashion, and so much more!

I am sure we all encounter similar situations and have some of the same questions as we meet new people, venture to new places, and attend fabulous events so, please share your thoughts and questions with me!

Sparkle on y’all,


My Background

As a Protocol Specialist then an Events and Sports Specialist in the Washington, DC area, and now a special events professional for an international nonprofit, I have learned a lot about protocol and etiquette in modern society. In addition to my professional experience, I am also a graduate of the Protocol School of Washington’s Protocol Officer Training certificate program and a member of PDI-POA: Protocol Officers Association.


And I am a proud University of Maryland alumna. Go Terps!

  1. Hi Alexandra,

    I came to your blog for today’s DC Ladies’ Blogtober challenge. This page does a great job of communicating your goals and purpose for your blog. I adore your “sparkle on” closing, which I noticed on your posts as well. I’d love to hear more about what being a Protocol Specialist entails. I must admit, protocol and etiquette are not things I know much about; I look forward to picking up some tips from your blog!

    Happy Blogtober,
