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!
