Hey all! I hope everyone is having a great week so far!
A few days ago, Ashley posted about some books she was currently reading. That got me to thinking about 2 books I recently read and can't get enough of!
True Prep: It's A Whole New Old World
True Prep is a cute and funny interpretation of the Preppy life. It is the follow-up book to The Official Preppy Handbook (I want it REALLY bad) which was written in the '80's. True Prep gives some great advice on life, fashion and everything in between. When the book came out, Vineyard Vines even released a whole line of True Prep stuff including 2 totes, Ties and Flip Flops! I would really recommend reading this if you get the chance...it really is a must have in any prepsters library!
What Would Jackie Do?: An Inspired Guide to Distinctive Living
When I found this book, I just had to have it! The title says it all. What Would Jackie Do?: An Inspired Guide to Distinctive Living. That's exactly what it is! A a guide that answers most of life's questions and problems according to the way Jackie would have answered them. I'm not all the way done with the book yet, but from what I've read, I LOVE it! Here is an excerpt from the book:
"Overlook faux pas. You mustn't let the minor transgressions of others interrupt your daily flow-or block your precious chi. When people stumble with their words, their manners, or their wit, there's just no need to take an emotional tumble. Jackie wouldn't give a damn if you said, "I love your Gucci!" (if in fact she was wearing Pucci) or "How was the bear hunt?" (when foxes were her thing). "
Do any of you guys have any favorite preppy books? Any interesting books you are currently reading?
