Welcome, dear followers, to my latest Style Challenge! Last week I mentioned I had a challenge in the pipeline, and here it is. Five days of fashion based on my favourite Gossip Girls – Blair, Serena, Vanessa and Jenny. Aren’t you excited?!
I’ve only recently started watching Gossip Girl and am officially hooked. You can often find me glued to the sofa, mouth open, eyes glazed, as Blair, Serena et al. parade around on screen in oh-I-love-it outfits, with my favourite city as their backdrop. Goodbye real life, hello living-precariously-through-a-TV-show life.
You may have heard on the fashion grapevine that Miss Selfridge are creating a Gossip Girl collection based on my four favourite characters. I’m so utterly excited about this, but as it’s not yet launched, I’ll have to make do with my own interpretation of GG style until it is.
My first look is based on Blair’s Upper East Side style. Blair is probably the character I relate most to, style-wise… she may be an uber bitch, but that girl knows how to rock a full skirt! Often spotted working the 50s silhouette, Blair favours swishy skirts, neat cardigans and sharp shirts. I love the way she mixes patterns and fabrics, and her floral prints and bright tights are permanent fixtures in my own wardrobe.
So, we’e kicked off with Miss Waldorf – a New York princess with fresh, feminine style and a headband for every occasion. Who’ll take Queen B’s place tomorrow? Well, wouldn’t you like to know?
