Independence Day, also know as the 4th of July is only 5 days away. Hopefully, you already have your most American apparel ready but in case you don’t, the staff at Twines & Vines wanted to put together a patriotic apparel guide. You don’t want to end up like the Boss, who a few years ago wore a Ferrari shirt on the 4th, which unbeknownst to him had a tiny Italian flag on the neck. People were not too happy with that move, Boss.

Hey everyone! My name is Sarah and this is my first post as the newest T&V girl editor. I’ll be taking you all along with me on my summer adventures on the Cape, in the Hamptons, and anywhere else life takes me. I’m a preppy kid from the north *gasp* who loves Lilly, lacrosse, sailing, and boys in bow ties. I can’t wait to share my music, tastes, and lifestyle with you!
♥ Stay Preppy
BY THE WAY
I realize that there is a new Preppy Handbook called “True Prep” but that is purely incidental and I did not realize that was the name of the sequel until I had already adopted the name but feel free to check it out anyway.
The American classic Ray-Ban sunglasses are celebrating their 75th anniversary. I’m a big fan of Ray-Ban’s, having rocked a pair of classic polarized Wayfarers for the past year. Can’t go wrong with a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarers or Aviators.

I’ve been away from the T&V team for a bit but during this time I discovered an absolute GEM! Aer is a local band (close to my prep school at least) from Wayland, Mass. They’ve got some stuff on itunes and a free album floating around out there (The Reach), but my favorite song is by far Feel I Bring. Enjoy this one on your yacht!

The newest female blogger for Twines & Vines. First off, I’m very excited to have the opportunity to write for The Boss. I’m typing this on my boat which fits me very well since I am East Coast Yachter. I am a preppy Cape Cod gal and sailing is a huge part of my life. I’ll blog all summer long about fashion, regattas along the Cape, and many more surprises.
Any guy who attends prep school is constantly distracted by the abundance of beautiful young ladies at our schools. Walk around almost any campus and you see brains & beauty for days.
The question is really just a matter of which school has the most beautiful students? Of course, if you asked anyone at Nobles, they would say Nobles, but every school has their share. Is it Groton? Hotchkiss? Pomfret? Tabor? St. Gorgeous?
Here at Twines & Vines have decided to set up a weekly competition amongst prep school hotties! We’re calling it our Halyard Hotties contest. We would like you, the readers, to submit your favorite hotties from Founders, ISL, EIL or whatever prep affiliation they fall under.
Ladies are absolutely welcome to submit their own profile. Gentlemen, you MUST ask the girl’s permission before submitting, so when they receive an email from us they aren’t completely creeped out. Shoot an email to email@example.com with a link to your hottie’s Facebook page, and get ready for this summer to get even hotter!
Being chosen as a Halyard Hottie will get you on the list as a possible model for some of our friends at preppy apparel companies. Winners also receive a prize pack courtesy of The Boss.
From Yahoo! News:
There are gourmet pizzas. Then there are $450 pizzas. And now there’s a $1,000 pizza.
The Bellisima Pizza from Nino’s Restaurant in New York City features fancy toppings and a fancy price tag to match–order one of these pizzas and you’ll find your bank account $1,000 lighter. Why so much dough for the pizza? Is it baked by the ghost of Elvis?
Alas, no. Simply put, the pizza has some pretty pricey ingredients. The chief topping is six different kinds of caviar, which, according to the restaurant, runs around $820. So that leaves about $180 for the dough, sauce, and other toppings, including Maine lobster. Not to mention labor cost and possible profit.
The question isn’t really whether or not you would order a $1,000 pizza. The question is would you ever eat anything served by a guy who looks this creepy? Total creepshow.
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — A website that authorities say two aging professors used to run a multistate prostitution ring is legal, a state judge has ruled, highlighting the difficulties thatprosecutors face in using decades-old laws to combat a modern phenomenon.
The ruling comes as prosecutors were scheduled to present to a grand jury their case against formerUniversity of New Mexico President F. Chris Garcia, who is accused of helping a physics professorfrom New Jersey oversee a prostitution website called “Southwest Companions.”
State District Judge Stan Whitaker ruled that the website, an online message board and Garcia’s computer account did not constitute a “house of prostitution,” the Albuquerque Journal reported.
Whitaker also said the website wasn’t “a place where prostitution is practiced, encouraged or allowed.”
The ruling means that prosecutors will now have to decide how to proceed with a case involving Garcia, retired Fairleigh Dickinson University physics professor David C. Flory and others.
Do I want to study business and entrepreneurship in college? Yes. Am I looking for new ideas and programs? Yes? Is UNM what I am looking for? Hell no.
One thing I have learned from looking at colleges is that many of them are trying to be the first in new programs, but I think that former UNM President Garcia was really pushing it.
