Gossip Girl: Blair vs Serena Fash-Off

This week Gossip Girl the complete series and season 6 is released on DVD and to commiserate and to celebrate the end of an era of one of my favourite TV shows, Gossip Girl I have decided to put ‘Queen B’, Blair Waldorf up against ‘It Girl’, Serena van der Woodsen in a Fash-Off for the six seasons.

When it comes to fashionable TV shows I think only Sex and the City could rival the gang from the Upper East Side and these are some of my favourite looks from the show.

Season 1:


It is hard to choose between preppy Blair, complete with her signature headband and a glam Serena in a gorgeous gold Pamela Dennis couture gown. But I think round one goes to Blair.

Season 2:

gossip girl, blair, serena, fashion, GG, styleFor season 2 I have gone for a fun, prim and proper Alice + Olivia dress for Blair, I love the pink belt, and Serena is working a her skinny jeans, pinstripe blazer and knee-high boots. Round 2 has to go to Serena – this is a chic daywear look.

Season 3:

GG-season-3At Rufus’ wedding both Serena and Blair look incredible – which gets your vote – Serena’s strapless J. Mendel dress or Blair’s exquisitely embroidered Red Valentino? I am going to have to give this to Blair.

Season 4:


Another season, another couple of amazing frocks. We have Blair looking drop dead gorgeous in a red Oscar de la Renta gown and Serena in a steel grey Zuhair Murad lace dress. Both are amazing, but I love the lace design of Serena – so round 4 to her.

Season 5:


I couldn’t do a fashion feature and not include Blair’s Vera Wang wedding dress, the layers and layers of embroidered lace was spectacular, but does it beat Serena wearing British-based designer Mary Katrantzou? I am going to have to say, yes, just!!!

Season 6:


All about the wedding dresses – but who do you prefer Blair’s embellished Elie Saab or Serena’s dramatic Georges Chakra? I am going to have to call this one a tie – as both are so perfect for each character.

Who is your favourite Blair or Serena?


Gossip Girl: The Complete Season 6  and  Gossip Girl: The Complete Series are available to own now on DVD.

Bag Lust: The Heritage Bayswater Mulberry Satchel

You may have gathered by now that bags are kind of my thing, and lusting over them seems to be a full-time occupation. I am lucky enough to own a number of designer bags, but a Mulberry has alluded me so far, and maybe it is because I always seem to fall in love with the most expensive one!!

If only I was Blake Lively, she seems to have nearly all the Mulberry collection, and this gorgeous Heritage Bayswater Satchel in super-soft haircalf and ostrich is the latest one I have seen her carrying leaving the Gossip Girl set. There is a downside to crushing over this bag, it is a whopping £3,500, but I just love how it has been inspired from the Mulberry archives and those poacher-style straps are cute.

Do you have a favourite Mulberry style?

Blouse Loving: The Charlotte Pussybow From Hedonia

I am blaming the return of Gossip Girl for my love of prim and proper ladylike attire. I do have a slight addiction with Blair Waldorf, and I readily admit that I so what to be her, especially as I would be able to live in New York!!! Well taking a leaf out of Blair’s fabulous wardrobe I have found the most perfect pussybow blouse from fashion label Hedonia.

Blair and the Upper Eastside may have the spending power to pick up this gorgeous houndstooth Alexander McQueen (below), but if like me that is a little past your budget don’t worry as this one from Hedonia would not only look amazing on Blair, but it is also a bargain at £40.

The Charlotte pussybow blouse from Hedonia comes in two colours, ivory, or my favourite the retro satin print blouse – that orange and black zig zag pattern totally looks like it has come from the 70s.

What I love about this blouse, there is a lot: the puff-ball sleeves – super cute; the tailored fit; the choice of colours; the price; and the best bit has to be the fact that the pussybow tie is detachable – genius right, so for £40 you get two-looks-from-one-shirt – LOVE!!

Not only does this blouse look amazing with the Hedonia orange Rachel skirt, the high-waisted flare is so divine, but I think it would be look perfect paired with 70s-style flared jeans for a retro vibe. Or if going for the complete Blair look, just team with a classic pencil skirt and fishnet tights.

Met Gala 2011: Leighton Meester Goes Gothic

Who: Gossip Girl star Leighton Meester

Where: At the Alexander McQueen: Savage Beauty Costume Institute Gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City

Wearing: A strapless corset Louis Vuitton dress made exclusively with cotton gros grain ribbons and leather bands and button detailing. Leighton finished off her look with LV lace-up booties and clutch.

Verdict: I love this head-to-toe Louis Vuitton look on Leighton, mainly because she always wears something different, and I am loving her gothic glam vibe. Also Leighton has to have one of the best hair looks for me as well, her sleeked back ponytail is perfect, shows off her statement earrings perfectly.
