Good evening everyone!
Here at the Prepatorium we experienced several hours of white-out snow this afternoon.
It was Just. So. Dreary.
A matching umbrella will sell at $22.99.
The collection hits December 28th, running through March 15. Below, the Chain Bag in black, expected to sell at $44.99.
There are some utterly divine pieces available now at the Hayden-Harnett website. We love the Capri glasses case, but this photo forces us to call for a reader response: is the fabric slightly crooked in the frame, tilting to the right? Or is TP more off-kilter than normal?
Just when we thought the frenzy over all things Gossip Girl might be calming down, we read about the following on a gazillion websites:
G2 star Blake Lively, who plays Serena van der Woodsen on the hit show, has landed the December W cover, no small feat for a star on the small screen. The story by writer Dana Wood makes the contention:
“…Levelheaded Blake Lively is emerging as the buzziest (and busiest) of the Gossip Girl gang.”
“…I couldn’t resist asking about my favorite Gossip guy: Ed Westwick, aka the sinister Chuck Bass. Sliming his way through every episode in one insane, prep-run-amok ensemble after another, he’s emerged as the show’s true fashion scene-stealer.”
Some readers may recall our post mentioning that Mr.Westwick is to be the new face of the K-Swiss advertising campaign. Below, Mr. Westwick in photos of the shoot for those ads, courtesy of the Just Jared website.
No mentions that TP noticed of the alleged Feud between Ms. Blakely and co-star Leighton Meester.
We know that Kate over at the always wonderful Nautical by Nature will be clicking over to Refinery 29 faster than we can all say “bye-bye” to her; they have an entire post, “Life Aquatic – Nautical Themes Sail into Spring” that we think might appeal to her.
Above left is the Gathered Sweater by Steven Alan, and on the right, the Sailor Pullover, available at A.P.C. online. Not all of the featured items are ideal for the Princess, but one never knows until they look for themselves, so enjoy the window-shopping!
Having already visited the Boutique Tarzshay today, we shall minimize our online surf time and share this men’s sweater for our Argyle Update.
Most of you know of our obsession with adoration of bows. After all, our motto here at the Preppy Princess is “Because Life is Better with a Bow.” And it is better, don’t you think? Below we offer one of our new favorites, the Betsey Johnson BJ7026 watch in blue, $67.50 at Zappos.
It is also available in red at Amazon for $73.50.
It is almost time to tune in for this:
We are talking about the CBS 60 Minutes Interview with President-elect Barack Obama and Michelle Obama. We apologize, but we do not have a clue as to who Ms. Obama is wearing; we only know the story was shot last week at the Ritz Carlton in Chicago. Here is one exchange from the interview:
“… And I looked at him and said, ‘You are the 44th president of the United States of America. Wow. What a country we live in.'”
“How about that?” President-elect Obama added. “Yeah. And then she said, ‘Are you going take the girls to school in the morning?'”
“I did not,” Michelle Obama replied, laughing. “I didn’t say that.”
In a bit of political trivia, here are the Secret Service code names assigned to the Obama family:
- President-elect Barack Obama: Renegade
- Michelle Obama: Renaissance
- Malia Obama: Radiance
- Sasha Obama Rosebud
Mrs. Obama has had her name since January. Vice president-elect Biden is “Celtic,” and Mrs. Biden is “Capri.”
Many readers will remember the interest in the dress Michelle Obama wore for her White House visit last week; it turned out to be by designer Maria Pinto. As an added FYI for the political fashionistas it turns out First Lady Laura Bush was wearing Carolina Herrera.
On that note, ‘night ‘night!
