ConfessionWatching Gossip Girl is my guilty pleasure. It certainly isn't the most believable or superiorly written show I have seen, but I cannot help my obsession. I may or may not own several seasons. Blair Waldorf, the character played by actress Leighton Meester, has great style. Classic and polished, she looks put together even when her oh-so-dramatic life is virtually falling apart. Although I will never have the clothing budget to exactly duplicate her outfits, I can do my best to translate her style to my much calmer, Cincinnati lifestyle. Until I find a job where I can lounge around in a designer negligee and drink mimosas all day, that is.
Outfit I Adore #1
This look is perfect for the office or any occasion where you need to be a little prim. Lots of texture and a little bit of pattern ensures that the relatively neutral color palette isn't boring.
This version costs less than $250 using pieces from Mango, Charlotte Russe, www.lorisshoes.com, and JCPenney.
Outfit I Adore #2
We all know outwear can be expensive, but guess what? This gorgeous coat from Mango is only $45!
Outfit I Adore #3
Blair does gorgeous, feminine outfits quite often, but I especially love the use of texture here.
