Hello-Hello, and happy sunshiny day! We are expecting an almost-tropical high temperature of 45 degrees today!
You realize of course, there is no way TP can resist some of the spring fashions we have been seeing, especially those designed for the Young Miss or Master of the house.
The Gingham Sleeveless Dress is available in the blue shown above as well as an outstanding pink, both in Girl’s sizing. Also in Girl’s sizes, there is a Springtime Scottie Sweater that is just TDF, as well as this striped Rackets Sweater.
Not to mention the twill pants with embroidered little whales.
There are also darling looks for your Young Man.
The striped sweater and button-down shirt are both ready to report for duty, basics perfect for rounding out any young man’s wardrobe.
THIS JUST IN:
Truly just in to our email, word that Best is doing a special promotion, offering a 25% discount from their regular prices online and in-store; the promo code to enter at checkout is SPRINGSAVINGS.
And for the youngest family members eagerly awaiting the Easter Bunny, how cute are these?
Of course, if one feels the need for their own bunnies, there is an adult version available from the online and catalog retailer.
We have yet another magazine cover featuring a star from everyone’s favorite prep school in the sky, the oh-so-popular Gossip Girl.
Blake Lively has landed the cover of April’s UK edition of Marie Claire. Ms. Lively has been busy when not filming the show in New York, most recently at yesterday’s DKNYMEN Fragrance launch. The actress was sporting a Tory Burch top, but apparently plans to create some fashions for herself in the future, according to this story from USA Today:
“Lively is turning into something of a DIY girl. “I just got a Singer sewing machine and I’m so excited. I’m having a desk built at my house. It’s something I really love,” she said.”
Serious fans seeking a glimpse of Mr. Crawford can watch him this evening on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.
While not a glossy, the Daily Princetonian is certainly more reflective of contemporary life at an Ivy League school, and assuredly more realistic. In today’s issue they carry a fascinating story on Laura Breckenridge,
Ms. Breckenridge has the unique distinction of actually attending Princeton while also portraying a character on the Gossip Girl show. She plays the role of Rachel Carr, a new English teacher at the hypothetical private school on the city’s Upper East Side the show is based on. According to Preppy, Preppy blog, Preppy Princess, Preppy Princess blog, preppy style, preppy fashions, preppy look, prep senior writer Elinor Flynn’s story, “Spotted: L. drinking coffee in Chancellor Green Cafe,” not everyone on the show was a stranger to Ms. Breckenridge:
“She actually wasn’t a stranger to everyone on set: She and Leighton Meester, who plays the delightfully conniving Blair on the show, knew each other in high school and ran into each other a few times when they both lived in Los Angeles.”
When asked about life on the set, the actress offered an interesting perspective:
“The most striking feature of the “Gossip Girl” set? The number of dogs running around. Meester, Blake Lively and Taylor Momsen — to name a few — all arrive to work with a pup in tow. “All the dogs hang out in the hair and makeup room,” Breckenridge said. “There are always dogs coming up to you. It’s nice.”
The story’s subhead is “‘Gossip Girl’ Laura Breckenridge ’10 on school, acting and kissing Penn Badgley“. We’ll let you scan the article for that information.
We close today with a Pretty in Pink from St. John’s SoCa Collection.
And while running a bit (a bit?!) more than we currently have on hand in pin money, we still adore the Silk Taffeta Jacket, now available at Saks. To be honest, it is just making our Spring Fever worse! For some reason, it shrieks Muffy Martini at us, perhaps because it is from the Southern California line. (You know, the younger, hipper line we pretend we can wear…sigh.)
Until next time, ladies, grins and giggles for your sunny day!
