I am just now watching Nightline on ABC and there is some story about the preppy style somehow being back in vogue. having been raised in the northeast u.s., preppy was the standard. people who were not preppy were 'weird' or 'unfortunate'. in my little realm preppy never left. pink, green, plaid and stripes have always been wonderful. i find it amusing to think that such a style that has been embraced by many for a lifetime is somehow cyclical and now is popular once more. lol.
