Why are you a "prep"?: I love dressing up and looking presentable. I admire people who believe in their dreams and make a difference in this world. I believe in being knowledgeable in world-wide conflicts and do a lot of volunteer work, including working with children at a shelter for women of domestic violence every month (I organize the events). I have been through a lot but refuse to remain anything but optimistic. people try to tell me the days of chivalry are gone, and that old school romance and basic manners no longer exist but I'm determined to keep them alive. I'd choose a glass of champagne over hard liquor any day. I color coordinate my closet and believe that the best things in life are timeless- especially when it comes to fashion! yes, the people at bloomingdales know me by name but I'm not opposed to a great sale at Target either. I'm extremely grateful for my friends, family, and the opportunities I have been blessed with in my life.
What makes you "not preppy": I play the guitar :)
What prep stereotype do you not agree with: the materialistic aspect of it...and the notion that being a prep means you act superior to everyone else when in actuality it is respecting each person and treating them with kindness.
Do you wear a ribbon in your hair?: sometimes
Do you own the official preppy handbook?: no but I have read it. I'd like to own it but neither of the barnes and nobles I go to carry it
What is your favorite color combination?: pink and green, tiffany blue and white
