Soooo, I’m not sure I’ve made it known, but I absolutely adore Gossip Girl.  I wish I could say it was just purely to look at the clothes but I’m addicted to the story line and can’t wait for the next week to get more.  It’s kind of my guilty pleasure.  And as I was dutifully watching this week’s episode I couldn’t help but fall in love with Serena’s (Blake Lively) attire which can be seen below:

How cute right?  I love the pop of color mixed within all the neutrals.  Too bad it’s getting warm and that outfit seems unusable at the moment.  But I will tuck the idea back in my head for when the cold picks up again.

If you want to try to steal this look but for what I’m assuming is way less than what the Gossip Girl Fashion Director’s price.  Here are a few pieces that are wallet friendly.

Forever21 Fab Straight Leg Color Jean in Blue for $12.50

Alloy's Ashley Boot in Taupe Suede for $32.90

Forever21's Military Zip-Up Jacket in Grey for $22.80

Layer the above items with a grey shirt and some black gloves and a scarf you have laying around and Voila! Serena’s outfit for under 70 dollars! horrah! 🙂

I’ve got a lot of hair. Hair that is super thick and Asian textured and hates to stay up. So when there’s a formal event coming up or I just want a change from my super straight hair, it can be quite the task finding a way to mix it up. However, these fun hair accessories always brighten my outfit, as well as my spirits! 🙂

I see you - Golden Peacock bandA super cute feather headband that adds something special to any outfit without being too over the top.  Can be found here for $25 plus shipping.

I fell in love with this feather piece and will make a few alterations to my own soon. Features an elastic band to keep it in place which i will cut and replace with a clip in order to just snap into my own hair. And for only $12.80 at Forever21 it’s a must have for dressing up!

Hand Made Vintage Box 1947 Curled Goose Feather Burgundy Hair Clip
This last piece I found on unique-vintage.com a site I frequently visit just to look at cute vintage dresses. It’s hand made by a local designer, Nina Barton from Vintage Box. Nina also has a shop on Etsy.com. Check it out here for other designs made by her.

Hmmm. . . all these feathers make me wonder if maybe I can hand make my own. . . Time to check youtube for possible do-it-yourself videos! Until next post!!
