Off the Shelf: SEVEN SISTERS STYLE: THE ALL AMERICAN PREPPY LOOK, by Rebecca C. Tuite

So, every now and then I tell you about a cool book that I saw go by at the store- not necessarily something I own or have read, just something that looks neat.

Seven Sisters Style: The All American Preppy Look, by Rebecca C. Tuite and published by the wonderful Rizzoli, is such a book.

As a Seven Sisters graduate (Wellesley) was naturally drawn to this volume about college women and preppy style. I love preppy clothes; I don't dress exclusively, or even mostly, like that, but it is my style ideal. L.L. Bean, plaids, cable-knit sweaters and lace-up shoes- bring it on.

I don't own this yet but I plan to buy it soon. I can't wait to read it and flip through the pictures, which I know are great because I've already looked through it as it passed through my hands at the store. So much fun!

I never would have seen this book if not for you. Thanks. I love all things preppy as well, though I'm too slobby to be considered preppy myself. Have you read the re-release of The Preppy Handbook that came out a few years ago? Brilliant!

I'm a Red Class myself.

Must pick this up and see how our dear Wendy Wellesley is portrayed!

I love the preppy look too but don't dress that way. The book sounds terrific!
