Hey readers! I was planning on updating last night but got a little sidetracked so i'm going to do it now while I have the chance. Next week is going to be quite a busy week for me but I will try to fit in at least two posts!
I'm sure most of you have heard of the TV show "Gossip Girl" by now. If not, definitely check it out. I have been watching it since the beginning and while the story lines can get a little boring (how many times are Chuck and Blair going to break up & get back together?! Snooze!) the styling alone makes it worth watching.
So I felt a little inspired to make a post with Gossip Girl inspired looks, each look is from a different store that offer plus sizes!
Blair Waldorf is the all American prep girl. She loves pearls, headbands and elegant dresses. All of the items in this look are from dorothyperkins.com
Get the look: Black crochet neck dress, £30 *** Black lace bow clips, £4 *** Bow ring, £4 *** Metal flower pearl bracelet, £9 *** Black point quilted pumps, £20 *** Black opaque tights, £8
Vanessa Abrams' style has really matured since season 1. Before she was the girl in skinny jeans and Doc Marten boots, now she wears funky dresses and loves to mix patterns. Her outfits are always accessorized with bold jewelery! All of the pieces in V's look are from torrid.com
Get the look: Purple Floral-Print Fishnet-Shoulder Dress, $25.49 *** Purple Rosette Stretch Belt, $20 *** Mixed Metal Fringe Earring, $10 *** Pressed Bangle Bracelet 8-Pack - Antique Gold, $14
Jenny "Little J" Humphrey is the rocker chick. Her style is edgy and black is clearly her favorite color. Fishnet stockings, studded bracelets, thick eyeliner, lame leggings and ankle boots..she loves them all. All of the items in this outfit are from Forever21.com
Get the look: Cheetah Print Leggings, $15.80 *** Zipped Knit Top, $19.80 *** Crinkled Ankle Boots, $27.80 *** Chain Trimmed Leatherette Bag, $14.80 *** Nouveau Rosaries Necklace, $8.80 *** Pyramid Hinge Bracelet, $7.70
Serena Van Der Woodsen is the glamorous "IT" girl. She can pull off everything and has a less obvious style than the other girls. You can never predict exactly what her look will be. However she loves glitzy, figure hugging dresses and statement necklaces are a must! All of the items from Serena's look can be found at ASOS.com
Get the look: ASOS CURVE Mesh Waterfall Bandeau Dress, £17 *** ASOS PENELOPE Leather Platform Round Toe Court Shoes, £30 *** ASOS Long Spike Ring, £8 *** ASOS Mixed Metal Statement Multi Leaves Necklace, £16
I think Serena's look was the hardest to pick out! I do think the dress is very Serena (figure hugging, opportunity to show off your cleavage!) but i'm not sure if she would wear the color. However I think its the perfect color for the coming a/w season.
I would say my style is a mix of Serena, Blair and Jenny. I don't dress like any of the girls in particular but I do love a pretty, figure hugging dress (Serena), hair bows (Blair) and accessories with an edge (Jenny).
Do any of you lovelies enjoy the show? Which Gossip Girl character is your favorite and which has the best style?
