The College Prepster / Carly Heitlinger

Can someone explain her to me?  I mean, surely she isn't the first person in college to color code.  Is she some sort of college girl guru?

Never heard of her before. I'm kind of in love with that crazy green background her blog has though. College Fashion was around for almost two years before this prep girl started.

Adding in some discussion from the Unabashadly Prep post from the main page a week or so back:

threaldeal says:
If you are really trying to tackle faux prep then College Prepster is positively crying out for your attention. Her endless @companyX could fill a book. We get it, you graduated. You don’t have a real job. But sending sugar cookies (your MOM made) to @KateSpade isn’t going to get you one. How about writing a resume?
Sidenote: I did used to love her. But over the past year she’s become a total brand whroe, who half the time doesn’t even admit she’s getting kickbacks for pushing products. Which I’m pretty sure is an FCC violation…

    Did you reader today’s post? Or get the email at least? Ding ding ding! Yet another giveaway. Is that 4 or 5 this week? SHEESH! I used to love CP, she has really changed the last year or so. She’s gone from prep-as-a-lifestyle to prep-as-a-way-to-get-sponsors-and-buy-stuff. I’m not following her that closely anymore, just saw that she is apartment-hunting and she keeps talking about an upcoming move. And when did she send THE Kate Spade cookies? How did I miss that?

    resident asshole says:
    right? i found her only a year ago or so and she just kept getting worse so i gave up. she seemed really cute and charming back in the day (i went through some of her archives) and she still sort of seems that way, as in, she seems nice, but… talk about over the top. she has her own “magazine” and a tumblr which seems to only serve as a place where fans can ask her questions?

    plus, while she is kind of a brand whroe, it bothers me most that she blasts all this monogrammed/’preppy’-printed shit that’s not made by quality brands. completely the opposite of what you’re going for, carly.

      Yikes, she’s always seemed in some bizarre faux preppy wonderland. Her old posts made her seem very very young and clueless. Georgetown is preppy for sure but not this preppy mecca she made it out to be.

this girl is painfully obsessed with numbers.  she regularly tweets her google analytics stats, but apparently doesn't want to be responsible for giving page views to anyone else.  

 

A rare, rare, rare occurrence just happened. I added a new blog to my reader.  

… and unsubscribed because it doesn't show the whole post.

 

aren't those the thoughts you should keep private?  I used to read her (when she first started), but behavior like this totally turned me off.

I. Just. Cannot. with this girl.

 

I hate read her faithfully every day… and I don't get her/it/the preppy persona that she plays.

I did not know this forum existed! That comment thread above is great. I'm so glad to know that I'm not the only person to wtf at everything she posts.

 

I commented in another thread how I was amazed that after years of shilling for company after company, and with as many connections as she has, she ended up working for some LinkedIn knock-off start-up company. 

 

And I love how she constantly whines about being so OMGbusy. Also, her morning routine takes two hours?? What?

she strikes me as an overall weird persona. not even a blogger because .. does she even blog anymore or just answer questions & link back to old posts? also, i found it bizarre (maybe this is me) that someone asks her what she wears when she goes out and she basically said she NEVER goes out in nyc. nothing. like what?

+1.

 

Seriously. Does she even have friends? In my mind she takes 2 hours to get ready for work, goes to work, writes a sponsored blog post, does more "work", then gets 4 hours of sleep a night?

people who "brag" about only getting 4 hours of sleep don't seem super dedicated or crazy busy to me.  I just think it means they're inefficient or poor planners.  not exactly good qualities…

I don't know, it seems like she legitimately has far too much work between the blog, magazine, newsletter, tumblr and her actual job, which is totally her doing. She should really drop that Prep Talk weekly newsletter. I subscribe to it and most of the time it's missing a bunch of the regular features. Why even bother?? It's completely half-assed. 

 

I still can't get over the fact that she's a recent grad and living in a one-bedroom BY HERSELF. No wonder she doesn't go out! I don't understand how she affords it, other than a subsidy from mommy and daddy.

does she actually live by herself?  I was under the impression she had a roommate, but no idea.  You're right, pintrerestdisinterest, she needs to prioritize her life and "jobs".

I wonder how much long she's going to keep the College Prep name. I understand she's made a huge brand around that persona, but can she keep it up in a few years? Are people going to take a 24-year-old who calls herself the College Prep seriously?

I don't think she gets a parent subsidy, she probably makes enough from the blog per month to cover most if not all of a rent payment. She also made a post about her budget recently: www.thecollegeprepster.com/2012/11/how-to-set-budget.html

 

Also, I don't think she knows how to actually go out. She posted a picture from her friend's bachelorette party once and everyone was dressed like, you know, early 20 somethings going out  for a bachelorette party (heels, party dresses, etc). She wore a full skirted sleeveless dress (like something i'd dress a toddler in for a holiday party), and accessorized with her glasses. Womp womp. http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-CiWPv7G9nHc/T_bwFMP6BsI/AAAAAAAAJ48/***mdCMudIg/s400/DSC_0377.JPG

 

I'm almost embarrassed at how invested I am in this..
