My life currently revolves around books, reading and writing. This seems appropriate.
The can't-live-without coffee table book. The book release party was held at J. Crew... perfection. The foreword is written by one of my favorite Mensches in Madras, Steven Stolman. The author, Susanna Salk, is married to a Jew. Are you sensing a pattern here?
Drinking light in tennis white, misadventures on the preppy periphery, brunchtime buoys... THIS BOOKS IS A CLASSIC.
I have several copies of this. The one I keep on my coffee table was, believe it or not, a gift from a guy. He wrote a note in the front and I can't help but smile every time I open this (which is often). It's the unofficial Bible(/Torah) of entertainment for any good prep.
I got this as a Holiday gift from the Lilly store. They had 5 copies signed by Lilly to give out to their favorite customers. They asked me to join the team and be an official Lilly Girl two months later.
The original JGIWC. Everyone should own at least one copy of this.
I own two.
