    @ F.E. Castleberry - Thanks for making the playlist downloadable! That was very nice of you. (:

    So…I know this makes me a big dummy, but I don’t know how to download and play this in iTunes. When double-clicked in Firefox, it saves as an empty zip folder. I try to import using iTunes, but nothing to import. What am I doing wrong? Anybody want to help a nontechnical prep?

    It’s downloadable now gang. Just click the playlist image.

    Ahhhh, man!  Not downloadable???  What the heck?
    I was looking forward to loading this up on my Ipod classic.  Great tracks nonetheless.  No Spotify on Ipod classic.

    Thanks for all the excellent playlist in the past. Sorry to see they are no longer downloadable. Not a Spotify guy.

    @F.E. Castleberry - Fair enough! I do use spotify haha. It’s just nice to listen to your playlists on long drives in the car.

    A.M. Spence is right, download the web app for your desktop. It’s free. In regards to subscribing to Spotify Premium, almost anyone could afford $9.99/mo. It’s the price of one album. You’d literally never have to purchase music again.

    Modern Vampires of the City is by far their best album yet. Also glad to see you include Royals by Lorde.

    @J.H. Spotify is free through a web application and a downloadable desktop app.


    J.H. left a comment on 8/13/2013 at 9:25 PM:

    I agree with C.G.D! Not everyone can afford to have fancy subscriptions or data/smartphones!


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/13/2013 at 6:58 PM:

    @C.G.D.—No sir, not this time (or going forward). It’s time to embrace Spotify.

    As usual, M looks adorable!! Love when you feature her! I agree with Pink Julep - the yellow heels are a great pop of color!


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/21/2013 at 9:46 AM:

    @Henry—Don’t take her mantra so literally. It’s meant to convey a love for navy, not an exclusive marriage to it.


    Henry left a comment on 8/21/2013 at 9:44 AM:

    ....but, haven’t you pictured her numerous times wearing colors/dresses in colors other than navy?


    F.E. Castleberry left a comment on 8/21/2013 at 9:30 AM:

    @Henry—“Navy or nothing” is the mantra this young lady dresses by. As a ginger, it serves her particularly well. It’s her black.


    Henry left a comment on 8/21/2013 at 9:22 AM:

    What does “navy or nothing” mean? It suggests that navy is the only color to be worn?


    Pink Julep left a comment on 8/20/2013 at 2:49 PM:

    The yellow shoes really make this look - love it!

  • Back to School Giveaway

    Style  

    Summer is winding down. School is starting up. My interns are not happy about it. Frankly, I’m not happy about it. But there’s always a silver lining. Country Club Prep (currently advertising on Unabashedly Prep) and Boast are going to send one of you back to class with a new wardrobe. What does that entail exactly? A $1,000 Country Club Prep gift card and a complete fall wardrobe from Boast (no, that’s not a typo).

    Whether it was brushing up on literary classics, mushroom hunting, or meetings with the FBI in attempts to secure visas to study abroad in Spain, the summer interns did it in Boast*. You could look just as good in your adventures this fall. Simply enter the giveaway with a photo on Instagram of how you play (tag it with #BoastYourPrep). I’ll choose the winning photograph on September 3rd. Now get back to relishing the last traces of summer...

    The top shot makes my think of Holden Caufield calling through his black book while jaunting around NYC.

    Two thoughts. First, this young lovely is a traffic hazard! Second, only about 20% of the women who *think* they can pull off a look like this can actually do so; clearly, she is one of the 20%. Thanks for the eye candy. I’ll probably have cavities next checkup.

    I adore this outfit and those shoes are amazing!
