The Modern Socialite
The term “Socialite” has become confused in the recent past with elitist snobbery or drunken celeb-utants on the covers of tabloids. When originally coined in New York nearly a century ago, however, it referred to women who knew how to enjoy spending their time and money. Whether it was having an avant-garde taste in fashion, a scandalous love life or a rebellious social circle, socialites were all about enjoying life. They didn’t seek fame – these ladies knew how to have a good time and the attention naturally followed.
The Modern Socialite is a throwback to the original, with a twist. This title is for the independent, ambitious, savvy girl navigating her way around today’s crazy world. She works hard and plays hard. She is a rebel, but with a talent for carrying herself with class. She appreciates the finer things in life like fashion, culture, art, nightlife, and travel while making a contribution to bettering the world around her.
This site is a celebration of the Socialite lifestyle in New York and is dedicated to women of style everywhere.
