Bergdorf Blondes – Wikipedia
Oh sorry, when you reach a certain income level, you are “notorious” or “eccentric. So to read something light and sweet doesn’t mean the reader is shallow, it means it is time for a sorbet, reading-wise.
I can’t say I would recommend this book. Could the narrator and author be unaware of the fact that such a treatment is available in London?
Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes
zykes These women’s lives are not to be envied at all. I forgot all about this book. I know this is one of those books you’re not supposed to like because it’s so girly and fashion here shooes there. Be warned though; in as much as I liked the book for some beach time reading, there’s no character growth. But this glimpse inside their glitzy world honestly made me feel better about my own decidedly unglamorous life, which isn’t nearly as vapid or pointless as theirs.
Basically a very very fluffy slice of life from a woman who has been there Finally, she begins seeing a Hot Movie Mogul, only for him to abandon her in Cannes. Sex and the City fans. 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?
Is this book trash? On the bkondes, I don’t really think it is an appealing book to everyone. Which got me thinking.
Nothing was too rushed but again it was her first book! There was a hilarious scene in “Bergdorf Blondes” involving a doomed book club meeting. Review was originally posted on Alexa Loves Books Bergdorf Blondes was a pleasant chick lit read that combined three of my favorite things – New York City, traveling to various exotic locations including England and a relatable protagonist who enjoyed shopping, beauty rituals and writing.

It was a fun little fluffy book. The syjes is relentlessly distracting, like some kind of nervous tic; practically every sentence is accessorised with a deft reference to somewhere or something awfully fashionable and terribly New York.
Discover what to read next. Despair occasionally strikes when her latest prince turns into yet another toad, but it’s nothing an invitation to an uber-exclusive Hermes sale and a gallon or so ny Bellinis can’t fix.
This book is the literary equivalent of empty calories.
Books of the Week. The protagonist, known throughout the book as ‘Moi’ is a British girl who wants to be American, she escapes England, and a very snobbish American mother who is desperate to marry her to the Earl next door in spite of the Chair Affair, due to which the families are sworn enemiesand comes to New York where she lives the ‘Champagne Bubble’ life of a Bergdorf Blonde although she is a brunette who went to Princeton with her best friend, the quintessential New York Park Avenue Princess Julie Bergdorf.
It’s well worth a read for all the chick lit lovers out there, sort of like a syked up version of Gossip Girl.
Several months later, I was shopping in Sephora and I happened upon an at-home version of the Alpha-Beta peel! Yes, Sykes has found a voice – her voice? She specifically warned me in advance that it was really stupid, but secretly a fun read in a guilty pleasure sort of way. As for the love story, well, despite the ups and downs she goes through, our main character ends up with who I wanted her to end up with in the first place I totally called it from the first time they met!
Paperbackpages. I wouldn’t want to read only Plum Sykes but I think her brand of romance is very charming, especially as it is not typical romance with every detail of sex described.
I get sad when some books end then excited seeing another story about them.
But it’s impossible not to be massively entertained by a woman who refers euphemistically to oral sex as “going to Rio” in memory of the first man who suggested she get a Brazilian bikini wax, considers vodka a food group and who holds up glamour as the first of the commandments.
She ends up deciding to return to England, only for her car to break down partway to her parent’s house.
