Pretty Preppy

Hi lovelies!!

First of all, I want to thank Sabina at http://femmefatalexsabina.blogspot.com for the wonderful interview! It's the first time anybody has ever talked about me in german and I feel very lucky that she took the time to write this article! Go and have a look if you have a little time! She writes about plus-size fashion in general and I personally discovered other great fashion bloggers through her!

Here is the link for the post about me! http://femmefatalexsabina.blogspot.com/2010/04/vorstellungsrunden-plus-size-fashion.html

On a completly different subject, I have a new fashion mantra! You know if you’ve read my previous post that I want to have a new positive outlook on life. I was doing a project for school on Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein and kind of got in a Preppy mood and starting doing researches on the subject. Well I found on http://e.how.com some very inspiring and interesting infos on how to be preppy and I think that as an attitude, Preppy sounds quite an awesome way of life! I know I’m not smiling on my pictures but let’s just say I’m in a modelish vibe, but for the Preppy girl, it’s all about the smile!!

Read on if you want to know a little more!

“ Get the attitude. An important quality of a prep is their ability to be happy, bubbly, and very social. Look on the bright side all the time and be happy with who you are, and encourage people to do the same.

Act friendly and outgoing... a little shy is OK, but be nice. Smile. Stand up straight. Avoid getting people angry. Forget talking about money or politics-it can put people off. Being snobby shows poor breeding.

Preps have a friendly attitude and good manners. Read Etiquette books or take etiquette classes. Good manners are very important to preps. It shows people you have had a good upbringing. Use basic politeness such as please, thank you and excuse me. Be considerate and hold doors for people.

Be social; make new friends and practice being more outgoing. Throw a party for no reason every so often. Try to keep the party drug- and sex-free. You can be the life of the party but still be classy at the same time. For example, if you are at a party you won't be anti-social or drinking like a drunk and slobbering all over the place. Rather, you will have nursed one drink all night, socialized, and will not act like an idiot. “

Sooooooo? How do you feel about those recommendations? Would you want to be a preppy girl?

Thanks for visiting my blog and please comment, I love comments and will make sure to come and visit your blog if you have one!
