True Prep

I caved.

Yep. That's right. This college prepster was spotted at Vineyard Vines yesterday. Why? For a True Prep book signing by Lisa Birnbach.

I went by myself... a big step for me all crazies considered.

Lisa was so hilarious. I loved it!!! She was candid, and funny, and nice, and cordial, and preppy, obviously.
Vineyard Vines was the absolute most perfect locale. The people, the food, the drinks, the music, everything!

True Prep bag!


Love it!

Wait for it.... Wait for it.... WAIT FOR IT!


Nico! He was the brain child behind the blog. No joke. Freshman Year. Harbin Hall. Third Floor common room. The College Prepster was born.

  5. I saw that at Barnes & Noble the other day and almost picked it up but noticed that there is a book published before that one. Neccessary to get the other one first? I know it isn't a novel, but I assume there are references.

  15. I was wondering when you were going to get around to covering this...

    I like it, though my mother's original copy will always have a dear place in my heart.

    My copy is the kindle version! How times have changed.

  18. I just looked up a book review from The NY Times and saw the original book can be worth quite a penny. I bought The Official Preppy Handbook at my school garage sale for a dollar and now there is a sequel. I think this is hilarious! Great post :)
