New York private school girls are a most interesting specimen. They have more academic pressure than a first-year law student but many are more entitled than a Goldman senior VP. You can pick a random weeknight and observe them in their natural habitat at Nobu57 or Seraphina.

Shopping for these girls is no easy task. The bar is high but it’s easy to take a step off the ledge and voila… Serena van der Woodson.
While on the prowl for the perfect gift options we found Balenciaga pool slides on sale for about $200. They will be perfect for Christmas vacation in the Maldives or you can save them for August in Mykonos.
The girls are all gaga for anything Balenciaga (see above and don’t forget about those sneaker socks, which we found on sale). Teens still think Gucci is the greatest every Hermes starter kit, starts with the iconic H bracelet. A more reasonably priced gift option might be from Kate Spade. The Madison store has a wonderful variety of gift packages targeted towards everyone, including a Nanny, and yes, a New York teen.
