I am jealous of UES preppies for two reasons:
1. They get better educations than I did at Westminster
Description from Amazon: "After uncovering this underground economy where a teacher can make the same hourly rate as a Manhattan attorney, Anna herself is seduced by lucrative offers--one after another. Teacher by day, tutor by night, she starts to sample the good life her students enjoy: binges at Barneys, dinners at the Waverly Inn, and a new address on Madison Avenue." (If this is for real, sign me up. Seriously.)
And now for my favorite portrayals of UES preps.
The preppy version of the Breakfast Club. Intelligent. Great dialogue. Rent it.
In a previous post I discussed my love of The Ivy Chronicles. Well this is like the precursor to that book.
SMG is perfect in this movie. My favorite part is when the teacher dumps the coke out of her cross necklace.
Thus far, Gossip Girl, you KNOW you love her, is the most intoxicating portrayal of NYC prepster life. One day I will devote an entire post to my deep love and admiration for Blair Waldorf. jk. maybe.
