Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes
Started: July 19, 2010; Finished: July 26, 2010)

Summary/Description:


Plum Sykes beguiling debut welcomes readers to the glamorous world of Park Avenue Princesses, the girls who careen through Manhattan in search of the perfect Fake Bake (tan acquired from Portofino Tanning Salon), a ride on a PJ (private jet) with the ATM (rich boyfriend), and the ever-elusive fiance. 
With invitations to high-profile baby showers and benefits, more Marc Jacobs clothes than is decent, and a department store heiress for a best friend, our heroine known only as Moi is living at the peak of New York society. But what is Moi to do when her engagement falls apart? Can she ever find happiness in a city filled with the distractions of Front Row Girls, dermatologists, premieres, and eyebrow waxes? Is it possible to find love in a town where her friends think that the secret to happiness is getting invited to the Van Cleef and Arpels private sample sale? And how is she going to deal with the endless phone calls from her mother in England demanding that she get married to the Earl next door? 
With enormous wit and an insider's eye, Sykes captures the nuances of the rich and spoiled in a heartwarming social satire, featuring a loveable "champagne bubble of a girl" who's just looking for love (and maybe the perfect pair of Chloe jeans). (From Goodreads)

I love this book! I love how the author depicted a "Park Avenue Princess's Life" in the book. I also love how the author blended humor in the story. It was pretty hilarious. It is one of the books to read that I do recommend to girls who love fashion, glamour, and New York.

Socialistas. Glitteratis. Park Avenue Princesses. Very Upper East Side.

Happy Reading Everyone!
