Hello-Hello, happy Tuesday!
We are blessed with a gorgeous day here at the Prepatorium and hope you are enjoying the same wherever you may be.
In yesterday’s post about making it (miraculously) to the million mark in blog viewers we promised to share the highest ranking search engine terms. We’re going to share the Top 15, doing most of the list in a visual way and in reverse order.
We will start with the 15th and 14th most searched terms as they are so similar: Number 15 is “preppy blog” and Number 14 is “preppy style”, both equally difficult to describe with just one image. The best we can do is share the brief back story on an ancient item of clothing, a basic turtleneck we purchased ‘back in the day’ when Abercrombie & Fitch stood for something worthwhile. When its name was Abercrombie and Fitch Country Clothiers. When the most one would see of a logo on anything carrying the brand’s name was this. Below left, the inside of said turtleneck and below right, the external tag at the hem of this piece of perfection.
For those interested in more on the topic (at least from our very early archives), we discussed the topic in Those Abercrombie Abs…Part One and Part Two, also probably the earliest mentions about our horrific case of LogoPhobia. (Of course we still wear the turtleneck, it is in perfectly good condition!)
Number 13 is perhaps better explained by a map.
At Number 12, a brand that once shone brightly in our little corner of the globe.
Number 11 covers a topic sadly featured in many posts, we’ll go with an image from The Snuggie at Fashion Week last fall.
Number 10: This individual is mentioned in multiple posts, but here (more than 2 years ago) we officially confer Anti Prep status upon her. And yes, we are aware the young woman has undergone some significant image rehabilitation, but official Anti-Prep membership carries lifetime status.
(Kim Kardashian, famous for being Kim Kardashian.)
Number 9 comes to us from TSU (The Spousal Unit, aka TC), in his post titled The Consort’s Version of Cash for Clunkers, or Carpe Auto:
This one came as a surprise to us, here is Number 8:
The search is just one word, “fireworks”, not a term we would associate with the Princess blog, this oddity addles our little brain.
Very similar to Numbers 15 and 14, at Number 7 we have “preppy” and rather than search for one comprehensive or spectacularly preppish photo we shall take the wimp’s way out and simply show the full image from whence we found our avatar.
It would seem our affection for madras is deeply rooted.
This image may be one of the least familiar to our readers, it is the cast of NYC Prep, the one-season wonder chronicling the lives of ‘real prep school students’. Ahem.
Number 5 (from multiple posts on a Princess favorite, Goyard):
Number 4 (from multiple posts):
Number 3 from Why There is no Preppy Princess Post Today:
The actual search term is iPhone, again – utterly baffling. Why on earth would anyone come here for that topic?
Coming in at Number 2:
(Actor Chace Crawford in a publicity still from the inaugural season of Gossip Girl.)
And now (drum roll please) we share Number 1:
Our Number 1 most searched term also hails from the cast of Gossip Girl: Blake Lively.
As of this writing 19,538 searches for Blake Lively have brought people to the blog. Is anyone else troubled by this fact? Especially when we confess to never having seen a full episode of G2?
With that, we must solicit your thoughts: did any of these surprise you?
