Look for Less: Gossip Folks

By |April 21st, 2009|Look for Less, Why Did You Wear That?|

I’ve watched lots of these shows where they attempt to  “recreate” designer outfits for less, but I get SO annoyed because they are never even close to the original. I mean, I get SO mad that sometimes I must be restrained from chucking the TV out the window. It gets my blood boiling that these people are getting paid for not even coming close. Kind of like being a weather girl.

That’s where I come in. I pride myself on being really good at this. Add it to my special “skills” on my resume. Anyhow, after a juicy episode of Gossip Girl, I was inspired by the lovely ladies to recreate their sizzling style. Whether you’re a Serena or a Blair, I’ve got you covered!



Dress from Forever 21, $22.80


Headband from Forever21, $3.80 (Score!)


Jeffrey Campbell Stud Ballet Flat, $128



Crepe Tunic from Forever21, $27.80


Cami from Forever21, $4.80


Kimchi Blue Gladiator Sandal, $38


Madison Straw Bag, $45.95

And there you have it. Now you can look like your own Gossip Girl. I think I’m on team Serena… that could have something to do with the blonde hair and our shared love of maltipoos.  Either way, send in any outfits you would like me to “recreate” for you.



Why Did You Wear That: Give me… Givenchy!

Givenchy’s Fall 2008 runway show was enough to make the biggest wallflower want to get up on a table and break a guitar. It was chocked full of leather, chains, lace, and edge.  The overall theme was rocker chic. Below are three of my favorite looks and how you can get them.

A look from Givenchy’s Fall 2008 runway show. This look is sexy yet tough.

Blouse from Forever21, $22.80

Blank shiny PANT at Urban Outfitters, $68

(My favorite part about these is that they are actual PANTS- with pockets and fly!)

Steve Madden, Clubbin Bootie, $129.95
