“NYC Prep”Update, ‘Paris Preppy Style’ & APC Madras Collection

Hello and welcome to a completely inane and fragmented post!

We start with updated information on the much-discussed BravoTV series, NYC Prep, slated to start in June.

The docu-series “…follows the lives of six affluent teenagers firmly entrenched in Manhattan’s social circle….” Characters include Sebastian (lower left), and Taylor.


The show premieres Tuesday, June 16 at 11 pm; it then moves to its regular timeslot the following Tuesdays at 10 pm. It will be fascinating to see how Bravo’s show fares compared to Gossip Girl, the original inspiration for NYC Prep.


We now head to an international locale for a different take on preppy.

Streetwear site Black Rainbow is a little radical for TP (a little?!), but we were directed there to look at their version of prep style on Parisian streets.

It has been too long since we featured nautical goodies, and when seeing these we knew we simply had to share them.  The Nautical Hearts Socks at Loungefly are too fun!



And we thought the Nautical Hair Clips were also cute!




Yours truly is simply frenzied today, so we bid adieu to you!

    You just have to love the way the Europeans do American prep. That older guy on the Black Rainbow site looks like my Uncle Edwin, except my uncle would NEVER wear purple. Too girly. Would have to be lime green or yellow or sky blue.

  2. Wooo – won’t Nautical by Nature by excited 😉 I just cannot put Black Rainbow and prep in the same sentence or convo 😉 xoxo

    OMG! I cannot wait to see who the real life Blair is … eeeek! Xoxo-BLC

  4. Very cool. I think I’ll have to TIVO the new show…looks juicy!

  5. I think those socks are super duper cute!

  6. I heard about NYC prep.

    I like the socks!

  7. I wonder what school all of these kids go to. After several years in the NYC prep school system, I can tell you that no self-respecting NYC prep school (read, one of the older ones with a big name) would allow a reality show to be filmed there.

  8. Love the socks 🙂 And the *ahem* older gentleman in the Black Rainbow ad is adorable 🙂

  10. I must get those socks!
