Gossip Girl Fashion- ‘The Fasting and the Furious’
This week's Gossip Girl episode was, again, on the boring side. Though they did give some hints at the end that suggest some bigger drama coming up.
I was really disappointed by Blair's looks this week. Her day outfit was the worst out of the two. The super high-waisted trousers were such a bad fit and gave her a flat bum. I was only not completely disgusted because of the cool Dolce & Gabbana top and the fuchsia Sergio Rossi shoes. I also didn't like the Valentino bag she added to the look. It was so old and dated...
The reason why I disliked the second ensemble is because, even though I actually love the SS10 Victoria Beckham dress she wore, it's such a bad fit. I understand that a lot of this pieces are samples but it's a popular TV show, can the clothes not be altered?

I am starting to develop this animosity towards Dan. I used to like him but ever since he's been referenced to as a young Scott Fitzgerald, Bret Easton Ellis ("The Gatsby of the social media age", WTF?) he's becoming a bit of a snobby wuss. I thought I was going to be sick when he said "It's been an incredible whirlwind. I just wish I could be sharing it with my friends and family". 
The best dressed were, of course, the van der Woodsens. Serena keeps wearing turquoise and aquamarine, which suit her so well. I feel like the stylists are listening to me? I must say it was a bit like sparkle central in Serena town with the glittery top and the earrings but it did look very cute with the short skirt and the Fendi bag.
My absolute favourite this week was Lily. I am so happy she's finally back. Her green Diane von Furstemberg dress wouldn't have probably worked on anyone else but it looks so elegant on her. I even love flower earrings that look like a plastic version of Prada's SS12 jewellery (and that I swear Serena has worn before). And the touch of the Dolce & Gabbana leopard and lace Miss Sicily bag was simply brilliant.

I am very impressed so far with the choice of shoes and bags this season. Although I would like to put in a request to the styling department to please start stuffing bags so that it looks like something might be in them. It really takes away from the look when they're all flat and shapeless!

Ha ha! Was just watching GG and thinking of you! The only thing worse than Blair's pants is the fact that Eleanor is standing across the room in a similar pair, what were they thinking?!

That DVF dress is so chic I love it! and although I agree with loving Serena's new wardrobe, her HAIR has got to be dealt with, what is up with the dry split ends? not classy
