Sykes has or probably will create Loved this book and the New York world of Park Avenue gals it spotlighted.
No one ever learns to care for anything beyond men, clothes, and grooming, and yet, despite this, they’re perfectly happy people. Sep 10, Annicka Borges rated it did not like it. What girl doesn’t want to read about Bergdorf’s?
Your outsize Chanel shades would have to be very dark indeed to stop you seeing it coming. This is one of my least favourite books of this genre at least of all time, to the point of being almost unreadable.
I picked it up, pushed through the first three or so chapters, and ended up somewhere just short of not being able to put this book down to eat.
Sometimes it’s nice for things like this book to meet your expectations.
Observer review: Bergdorf Blondes by Plum Sykes | Books | The Guardian
Apr 27, Somi rated it it was amazing. ComiXology Thousands of Digital Comics. The ending brings the proceedings firmly into the realm of Barbara Cartland — the moral of the story is to marry well, which I suppose is the ultimate beauty tip. But, like any other chick lit novel, it’ll blondess you smiling at the end- no worries! Don’t get me wrong, I was a suicide counselor for ten years and I more than anybody understand beggdorf serious suicide is, but this book made it so completely ridiculous it made the entire book make sense.
Gross are not in my budget. When I started reading this book it infuriated me!
Please try again later. Moi is good at this, bagging herself a Hot Young Photographer at her pal Muffy’s charity ball. Nope, I don’t feel bad about having given this ‘twist’ away.
I felt like it was the biggest piece of nonsense garbage I had ever picked up and I was teetering on moving on There was not one character I connected with or ended up liking I think Sykes attempted to make the narrator likable, but failed to do so, in my opinion. I don’t really want to discuss this book’s merits or lack thereof. It’s almost embarrassing to even admit I read it, but as a follower of Sykes’ Vogue pieces, I felt I owed her a bit of literary loyalty.
Share your thoughts with other customers. Can she ever find happiness in a city filled with the distractions of Front Row Girls, dermatologists, premieres, and eyebrow waxes? Also, this book is interesting as it belongs to an oeuvre of books written by former or current minions of Vogue Editor-In-Chief Anna Wintour. Meet Moi, the main character of the book who drops a little bit of French here and there and refers to sex as “going to Brazil”.
Honestly, beggdorf all requires a level of commitment comparable to, say, learning Hebrew or quitting cigarettes. Books by Plum Sykes. Ahhh, to be a Park Avenue Princess!
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. I loved every page! This page was last edited on 4 Aprilat Though it took a while for me to actually get into the book, somewhere in between the fourth and fifth chapter, I was hooked. 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.
Are there really people out there who are this shallow and pointless? No, it’s not a rerun of Wild America ; it’s the world of dressed-to-the-nines Park Avenue heiresses, aka Bergdorf Blondes, botoxed to within an inch of their barely-into-the-third-decade lives.
Read more Read less. She almost an anxiety attack planning her book club and in the end, they all just wanted the attention of the poor professor Henry. Books of the Week.

Also did I mention there’s hot men? I like how the typical New York socialite was depicted, even though I’m certain that it was a little exaggerated. Mindless, fun book skes lets one escape into, from most vantage points, a completely ludicrous, unbelievable world. It’s harder than it seems to succeed at this type of satire: Had it been written better or more precise without abbreviations, etc it wouldn’t have had that same personal quality.
Bergdorf Blondes reminded me bllndes the first Chick-lit books I ever read, Tiffany Trott and Minty Malone and Come Together and all those other British classics, only it had the all-too-wonderful extra ingredient, New York!
Before I read this book, I had looked at other reviews and people complained that it wasn’t written well or didn’t have much substance to it. I can see where people with more reasonable lifestyles and better heads on their shoulders might find this book offensive to their sensibilities, but I guess I just didn’t take it all that seriously.
