There are so many different clearance sales and other promotions underway in the retail world we wanted to share some of the goodies available in our favorite color. (But only those at fiscally friendly prices, of course.)
While the original cost might seem extreme, we can vouch for the quality and über-soft feel of the cotton against one’s skin, worth every penny. There are several of these floating about the walk-ins for both primary residents here at the Prepatorium, they last for. ever.
Sadly, we are required to make do with the men’s version as Tyrwhitt does not yet manufacture these for women. (‘Yet’, she says optimistically.) We are forced to do the same with the firm’s sweaters. Also on offer at a reduced price point, the Summer Pink Cotton V-Neck.
As with the polo shirts, we can vouch for the quality, top-rate, all of the products from this establishment wear extremely well.
Originally $98, the cardigan/jacket is now $49.
If seeking something a little more casual for the Young Lady of the House, Boden’s Hotchpotch Sundress is only $24.
Our favorite item may well be the Ralph Lauren Black Label Trench Coat.
Originally selling at $185 the top is now $83.25.
The Gossip Girl actor was spotted taking in the weekend action; almost all of the cast was back in the city today after a two-month hiatus, shooting for the upcoming season.
Our biggest concern: the Blake Lively footwear seen above. Among those hard at work, Ed Westwick, who was seen out on the town Saturday night celebrating his 22nd birthday with flame and co-star Jessica Szohr. Below, Mr. Westwick is looking very much in character this morning.
There you have it.
Having mentioned Mr. Crawford’s appearance at Wimbledon, we share news that the Daily Mail has a scathing column on who plays on what court,
“Babe, set and match: Why looks count for more than talent when Wimbledon decides which girls will play on Centre Court.”
Once again, our thanks to Rich at Down the Line Tennis for the tip on this story, one likely to prompt anger among many constituencies. One quote in the story from a BBC Official:
‘Our preference would always be a Brit or a babe as this always delivers high viewing figures.’
Tennis Gets Hot and Heavy
Increase in Co-Ed Events Sparks More Love Matches; Federer as ‘Eye Candy’
Really. We had no idea. And to think how this impacts everything related to the tournament!
“The bump in romance—and the possibility of romance affecting play—has put British bookmakers on guard. “If we heard that Roger or Andy were having relationship problems, we would factor it in,” says Rupert Adams of the London-based bookmaker William Hill.”
We had not thought about this particular consequence when considering the ramifications of romance at Wimbledon. Silly Princess.
A reminder about the ever-so-wonderful Preppy 101, (aka All Things Southern & Preppy): registration for her Red, White & Blue Giveaway ends tonight at midnight. If interested in winning a set of our Tradition Placemats …
Pop over to say hello!
With that it is time to fly out the door, as is so frequently the case, we are running behind!
