Have blondes ever been so dumb?
I love a kitten heel and a cashmere cardy as much as the next girl, but after I’d finished reading Bergdorf Blondes, I was determined to wear Birkenstocks and dirndl for the rest of my life. As Moi sums up her love life: When I started reading this book it infuriated me!
The unnamed character who goes by Moi is your typical, irritating, self-obsessed upper East Sider in NYC on the hunt for a husband and all the other trivialities that make up ‘that’ type of woman’s life – shopping, being seen, and looking great while doing it. It was entertaining to read about these women, especially in lieu of the fact that my lifestyle is incredibly different.
All the name brand dropping, events, beauty rituals, traveling – it was just fun to imagine and to dream of doing someday sans the name brand dropping.
When it comes to this type of lifestyle Plum Skyes knows what she’s talking about. Well, she has her nose waxed, for one thing. It’s not a romance, or even chic lit If your into fashion magazines, exspensive clothes, and hearing about what the stars do or how they live, then youll enjoy this and alot of the books ive read Nothing appealing about their thoughts, lives or personalities.
One of my critiques, though, is that there were a lot of abbreviations and slang terms used in the text that I wouldn’t understand outright. Jul 26, Louise Green rated it really liked it Shelves: Apr 27, Somi rated it it was amazing.

Should Vogue be alerted to the existence of a little place called Bliss? 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?
This was wonderful for that. There’s so many quotes in this book that got me through college and my early 20s it’s bananas.
First edition cover, Miramax Books. Feb 03, Mina rated it it was ok.
I haven’t read such a funny book in a long time. It was basically like Sex and the City but 10, times more vapid and pointless.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.
You know who you are. So far, so Sex and the City. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: The problem is, one cares not a jot for Moi or her flutterbrained companions and whether or not they blondees the Harry Winston diamond or the teacup pomeranian.
If you ask me, it seems like she enjoys being treated poorly by men. Plum Sykes puts the life of the New York socialite on a platter and serves it with a bottle of Veuve snuggled in its very own ice jacket. Put your tenner towards that Fendi clutch bag you’ve always wanted. What is wrong with me? In contrast, USA Blonces was more favorable in its review, writing that ” Blondes is an over-the-top, witty social comedy sure to put a spring in your step — whether you’re walking in Manolos or Keds.
