In honor of Gossip Girl’s return to television, this week’s inspiration is brought to you by the letters S and B. Whether you’re team Serena or Team Blair, there’s no denying that these ladies have serious style. New York is one of the most magical places during the fall. I don’t know what exactly it is, but I think anyone who’s spent a fall in the Big Apple can attest to that special something that’s in the air. Now, I know Serena is taking the season off in sunny California, but I’m still channeling the sumptuous accessories that a city girl might add to her collection this fall- the perfect shoes, scarf, and clutch for catching cabs and ducking into the hot club du jour.
Scarf: Etro Printed Cashmere Scarf, $780
Shoes: Alexander McQueen Skull Embellished Suede Pumps, $1,195
Clutch: Mulberry Bayswater Metallic Textured Leather Clutch, $600
Oh, it’s that time of year again. Kids are school shopping and it’s time to head back to class. Whether you’ll be hitting the books or just hitting the pavement, here are a few ideas to be worn together or separately to make yourself feel like your very own version of Blair (or Serena).

Accessorize these looks with the socks from last week and go straight to head of the class.
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!

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.
