As we have shared with you many times over the past few weeks,

Talley-Ho Design will be closing its doors this month.

Luckily for all of us, Talley-Ho will continue to accept new orders through September 14, 2018.

Which means there are still two more weeks to place your order for one (or more) of these timeless classics.

We have had a lot of questions over the last few weeks about which  bag is our favorite.

If you have to pick just one – this is it:

Talley-Ho Design Medium Ziptop Cosmetic Bag

Measures 11″ x 9″ x 3″

Shown Here in Blue Seersucker with Hot Pink Satin Monogram and Piping.

This Bag has five interior pockets in all, three on one side and two on the other.

It also has a zipper across the back with another pocket that is the perfect size

to hold cosmetics and keep them separate from other toiletries.

The perfect size for traveling. Fits nicely in a carry-on without taking up too much space.



What’s in Our Bag?  A Few of our Most Recent Go To Beauty Finds

Living Proof Perfect Hair Day Shampoo

It says that it “keeps here cleaner longer” and it does exactly that.

We’ll never use another shampoo

ever – again.

Also love the Conditioner and the Dry Shampoo.


Original Mini Makeup Eraser

We recently  received a small sample of one of these as a gift with purchase and were were immediately won over.

It removes 100% of your makeup with just water, including waterproof eyeliner and mascara

and eliminates the need for makeup wipes and removers.

The mini size is perfect for jetsetters and girls on the go.

It would be even better with your monogram on it – just saying!

Power Glow Peel

This 1-minute, 1-step exfoliating peel resurfaces, clarifies and helps to firm the skin for a radiant, renewed glow.

Glycolic and salicylic acids are combined to help reduce pore size and fine lines, while

chamomile and lavender help calm and soothe skin in this power-packed formula that provides

An –  Instant – Facial!

Individually packaged for easy packing!  We always have a few of these tucked away in our

Purse –  in our Talley-Ho – in our Glove Box – in our Pocket.


Keep the orders coming!

We’ll keep filling them through September 14th!

The Perfect White Shirt

We don’t know about you, but here at Classic Prep, we’re all about formulaic dressing.

Some days we still want to wear a uniform like we used to all of those days ago in school.

It was just so easy to not have to really think about what you were going to put on every morning.

Thankfully, our days of plaid kilts and scratchy acrylic navy blue v-neck sweaters

are long behind us and we have a new uniform!


Step 1:  The Perfect White Shirt:

This is a lot easier said than done.  But after years of searching, we have finally found it.



Madewell Drapey Oversized Boyshirt



Made of the most lovely cotton blend, the fabric has just enough weight to ensure it is

not sheer but not so much that it becomes heavy.

Longer in the in the back with split seams on the side.

We could truly wear it every – single – day.

More White Shirts to LOVE:



Point Sur Eyelet Top

40% off with Code Big Sale

Not your typical long-sleeve blouse, this all-over eyelet top is both super pretty and functional—it even has an adjustable waist!



Step 2:  The Perfect Denim:



Mother High Waisted Looker Ankle Fray Jeans


Simply the best pair of jeans we have ever tried on.

Extraordinarily flattering.

They will become the bedrock of your fall wardrobe.


Step 3:  Load up on the Accessories – from Classic Prep – of course!


Leopard Ladies Needlepoint Loafer

Leopard Needlepoint Loafers 


Pagoda Earrings Turquoise

Pagoda Earrings in Turquoise

Rhinestone Bee Cuff
