Are You A Preppette?

Loyal follower Ellen, aka I Love Lime Green, generously had her "Are You A Preppette?" poster photographed just pour moi when she unearthed it in the bottom of her childhood closet...

Numero uno mission, when I return from la playa Mexicana, is to scour the ends of the earth til I find one of these babies for myself....

  6. Fine the "are you a preppy" one as well and you'll be money. Framed together they would look ridiculous in an office or den

  8. What fun! It reminds me, do you have any updates about the resurrection of the Jacques Cohen espadrille (as referenced in your profile)? It would be great to find a pair, with spring almost here.

  12. Allie - Without your original post some months back, it would probably be years before I remembered that I had this poster! So glad everyone likes it.

  14. I asked a few posts back, but my request must have gotten lost in the shuffle.

    I believe I saw Furman University mentioned awhile back. PLEASE, if my memory is not faulty and any of you are familiar w/ this school, could you kindly post an honest critique/review. Thanks ever so much.

  16. I did email you a response but, i guess you didn't see it. My niece luuuvs Furman and is really thriving there. She's in a great sorority and has made wonderful friends. The campus is gorge and is refered to as the Country Club of the South. Or the University of Ralph Lauren. We all love the preppy town of Greenvuuulle. Be ready to embrace purple! XXOO

  18. Oh, thanks so much! This will teach me to post my actual e-mail address for blogs that I adore. Thanks again. We'll make an appointment to tour the campus with our daughter.

    Enjoy the rest of your vacation!

    All the best, Suzi

  19. So solution to getting a poster that may be difficult to find. Your friend will have to take hers to a Kinkos. Get it copied - might cost a bit, but won't it be worth it?? Yes. Please offer them to readers ;-) xoxo

  20. I had the "guy" one on my bedroom door at the KA house in college. Someone could make some $$$ if they bought these babies back out.

  21. Okay, don't laugh. But I still have that skirt. AND I still wear it. (I hear you laughing).

  25. I have a “Are you A Preppette?” Jigsaw Puzzle (same style as this) but with a girl on the front (Constance Brooke Pellington). I’ve been trying to find out information about this puzzle, and I haven’t been able to find anything. I know this is an old thread but I was wondering if anyone knows anything about this item (is it rare, how much it would be priced… etc.)

  26. I have no idea Katie but, if you decide to sell it, please let me know as I may be interested. Merci :)

  28. I am definitely planning on selling it, Are you still interested?

  29. Sorry Katie but, Busy Being Barbie beat you to the punch. She listed hers on Etsy for $20 plus s&h and I snatched it up immediately. Where are you listing yours in case I think of anyone I'd like to buy it for? Merci for the heads up...XXOO
