There are three things that every preppy girl esteems as rites of passage into Older Preppy Girldom: Her first Ferragamo ballet flats, her first strand of real pearls, and of course, her first pair of Harpers. There is nothing quite like CPC's oft-imitated, never surpassed, Harper big girl shorts. Big-girl fit, on-seam pockets, and a dash of ric rac on the leg. Bought by the dozen. 100% cotton and machine washable.
