Fab Read: A Privileged Life, Celebrating Wasp Style


If you dream about Tory Burch flats, and follow the lives of the true NY socialites, be sure to pick up A Privileged Life: Celebrating Wasp Style, $26.40. Written by design expert, Susanna Salk, this book is a tribute to the designers and icons of the somewhat stuffy, somewhat fabulous style of the Wasp.

For those perplexed, think of Charlotte York from Sex and the City. Total Wasp. These ladies are prim and proper in both demeanor and style, but they love a good party and scandal. Go figure. So put on your cashmere cardi, pour a glass of bubbly and cozy up with designers like Lilly Pulitzer and Waspy legends like C.Z. Guest. Toodles!

the rocker in me wants to PUKE at this book but the gossip and class-detesting part of me is stupidly fascinated just to see how the "high class elite" REALLY lives. oh wait...the rocker won. never mind!

Amazon.com actually just recommended me this book for some reason. I thought it was interesting but then it wasn't well received so I figured it was one of those random books that just popped up. Now I am interested in it.
