  1. Ahh, preppy, I grew up wearing this style, maybe because some good friends went to Prep School! Still love most of it. What was the name of that book that had all the preppy styles?

    1. Margot- Yes…I went to a college and this was what everyone wore. :) What book are you talking about? Is it ‘The Official Preppy Handbook?’

    1. Tiffany- Aren’t they great?! I’ve been trying to find them online with no luck…
