The two end up having sex, something that weighs upon the protagonist's conscience since she has a rule against sleeping with a friend's ex-boyfriend. The following day Julie ends up finding out about the sexual encounter after questioning the protagonist about the night's events, upon which point she reveals that she and Charlie never broke up and tells the protagonist that she never wants to see her again.
Since the friendship is gone, the protagonist decides to see Charlie again that night, as he had invited her to return for dinner. However the protagonist finds that Charlie has left, giving her the impression that he was just using her like the other men she has dated.
The protagonist manages to make it to the home owned by the Earl, where she runs into Charlie, who tells her that he is the Earl her mother wanted her to meet and that he had left the United States due to news of his father's death.
At this point her mother arrives under the guise of taking the protagonist home, with the intention of making her way back into Charlie's mother's good graces. This all proves to be too much for the protagonist and before leaving, she tells Charlie that she hates him and that she can no longer trust him since he never trusted her with any of this information.
The other thing that helps fund my habit is if I don't pay my rent on my Perry Street apartment.
I often don't, because my landlord seems to like being paid in other ways, like if I let him come up for a triple espresso he reduces my rent by over percent.
I am up every morning at AM and not a minute earlier. You can be frugal even if you have expensive tastes. Please don't tell a soul, because, you know, some girls get so jealous, but I hardly pay for a thing I wear. You see, fashion designers in New York love giving clothes away. Sometimes I wonder if fashion designers, who I consider to be geniuses, are actually thickos, like lots of mean people are always saying they are.
Isn't giving something away for nothing when you could sell it for something a bit stupid? But there is something really, really clever about this particular form of stupidity because fashion designer-type people all seem to own at least four expensively decorated homes St.

Barths, Aspen, Biarritz, Paris , whereas all the clever people with regular jobs selling things for money only seem to own about one barely decorated house each. So I maintain that fashion designers are geniuses because it takes a genius to make money by giving things away.
Overall, I can safely say that my value system is intact, despite the temptations of New York, which, I regret to say, have made some girls into very spoiled little princesses. Everyone was there except - oddly - Julie, the biggest princess of them all.
They looked deliriously happy. Then there was another group who were working the Harry Winston engagement ring look and they seemed what I can only describe as beyond radiant.
Jolene Morgan, Carl Phillips who had the biggest ring, but then she'd gotten a deal because her mom was a Winston , and K. Adams were in this group. Soon they abandoned the main party for an engagement-ring summit in Mimi's bedroom, which is so big an entire dorm could sleep in it.
Everything in there's upholstered in dove gray chintz, even the insides of her closets. It is fluff; but it is stylish, witty, and pitch-perfect. As Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City and consummate New Yorker put it, the book is "haute couture chick lit.
It follows Moi, a British-born socialite, and her heiress best friend as they trot the globe, hunting for PHs Prospective Husbands with plenty of backstabbing, gossiping, shoplifting and party-going to keep the reader entertained along the way.
There's also a wickedly funny scene of Moi wallowing in the aftermath of a breakup and by wallowing, I mean checking into the Ritz in Paris, melodramatically drafting a suicide note and will, and washing down eight Advil with a mimosa which frankly, made it nearly impossible for me to take my own breakup all that seriously.
Plum Sykes is the ideal chronicler for Moi's escapades. She herself is a British-born socialite, and a very chic one at that. A contributing editor at Vogue, Ms. Sykes knows her way around Park Avenue parties and ultra-private samples sales better than anyone. She's also got a relentlessly sharp wit and a keen eye for detail.
I've spent 28 of my 32 years in Manhattan, and I still felt like I was getting an insider's glimpse into an ultra-glamorous world. Sykes truly writes about her own world, and she does it in style.I thought, maybe one day, and moved on.
Bergdorf Blondes obviously fancies itself as one Manoloed step above your common-or-garden chick lit by being ever-so-slightly arch, in the manner of say, Clueless or Legally Blonde.
Jul 27, Debbie rated it it was amazing.
This display of ignorance becomes less startling as Bergdorf Blondes stumbles on, and it allows for a cloying motif. Love, S. I've got a new, watertight method of selection.
