Oh, Those Preppy Struggles

Hello-Hello, and welcome to a weekend. (Well, it’s almost here.)

In the spirit of ‘let’s have a little Friday Fun,’ we present a few items from “17 Preppy Struggles,” a post on BuzzFeed’s Community page. The series of “struggles” was originally posted last weekend, on the 12th.

Parenthetically, is this spring’s collection brighter or more neon-like than I noticed….?

Back to our list, here is #11.

Hmmm. That seems to be another challenge I haven’t yet encountered, the trendy prep. (Perhaps I live a sheltered existence?) This next photo was also included under Item #11. Presumably someone decked out a pair of pseudo-Sperrys? I can’t quite make out the brand name of the shoe pictured, but let’s be fair: there have been some Sperry designs of late that aren’t all that far removed from the shoe seen below.

Second on the list was this item:

Full disclosure: we may have uttered the occasional snarkism or ten or two when it comes to the hipster topic. Hipsters were targeted more than once on the list of Struggles.

Another item on the list.

Struggle #15 it may resonate far more than any of the others.

Thank heaven The Consort came along when he did.

And then there’s this, Struggle #16.

At least we can help out with this one. Behold, the personalized barrettes by the Preppy Planet.

These just launched last week, and they are already one of our top sellers for the month. The monogrammed barrettes (hair clips?) come in either an oval or rectangular shape, both measure about 3′ long by 1.5″ wide. The barrettes are $12 or two identical clips for $20. As always, we’ll even gift box and wrap them at no additional charge. Below, a few more designs.

Obviously the possibilities are endless when it comes to school colors and other themes (bridesmaids, sorority houses, etc.). We have already had inquiries about group buying rates (cheerleading squads, dance teams, etc.), we’ll certainly work with you on discounts for your organization or group. 😀

On that fun note, we hope you have a fabulous weekend and don’t let those ‘Preppy Struggles’ get you down. (Ahem.)
