American Prep!

March 21, 2011
Good morning everybody!
I don’t know what it is, but I’m really into menswear for women right now. Borrowing from the boys as it were. When I was growing up preppy style was THE fashion. Growing up we didn’t have a lot of money but what we did have was a sense of style and taking your brother’s old chinos and making shorts out of them or wearing one of your bro’s lovely white shirts was the next best thing to shopping Ralph Lauren Polo. I found this lovely blog, Unabashedly Prep, last night and it took me back in time, a time where boys didn’t unashamedly show off their underwear and girls were fresh-faced and sporty. Yeah, I know, I sound like an old lady. Let me have my moment. These two stunners look like people I went to university with in the States: So American!

    go to and unfortunately, if my situation does not change I will be going back State side mid May and then S. Korea. So we will be missing each other like two ships passing in the night. 😥
