The Official Preppy Handbook Challenge

Prep Persona

"Because Mummy and Daddy instruct their children in all matters of Taste and tact, Preppies don't really have to worry about going astray.When the time comes, the children will know what to write on Prep school application essay, who to marry, and how to ensure serenity and security for their children by putting their tooth fairy dollars in a money market fund. Like everything else, Preppiness begins in the home." TOPH




This is from lunch the other day with my gbff. Now do we think my preppy rearing taught me to wear crazy leopard boots and carry a very logo'd LV bag? Probably not...but the boots are Lilly Pulitzer. So I'm giving myself a check for this...next up "The Home."

Stay Preppy

  1. The boots are fantastic!!! I think they look cute with the speedy bag, I kind of think of the LV print as a neutral.

  8. And about your note--I've published some of my own stuff through Lulu, and I've sent some stuff off to publishers, which they've all loved, just not enough to pay me for. Le sigh.

  21. How did I miss out on those boots??? Lovely, very lovely. Don't worry, have the same bag and carry her with everything, I love her very much...

  22. Lovely outfit, so very fun and autumn! I find myself wearing, ahem, certain fashion pieces that are not preppy per se, in the traditional sense. Sometimes that really concerns me. My VERRRY conservative fiance will give me the eye of concern as well! I refer to myself as edgy-preppy! haha (NOT a proper term I know!) Still there are days like today where I am going to wear a great pair of kaikis and Ralph Lauren blouse with ballets (see, there I go!) to work and will feel so connected to myself. I think one thing preppy girls always are is modest even with "fashion" pieces.

    Loved your post, it really made me think about my love of Preppy Fashion.

  23. How could I not have added that, LV is my favorite, I still have (and use)the smaller version of that bag that I had right after high school. That looks like the size that I use most often now. Love LV!
