Can we just take a second: there is an official Gossip Girl Day.
As an avid fan, I feel like I should’ve known this before Carrie, Michaela, and Courtney announced their link-up, but late is far better than never! And maybe I’m not the avid fan that I think I am considering I skipped Season Five (I try to keep this on the down low….).
In true blogger fashion, Laura and I teamed up to take outfit photos together (and also, I think I’ve put my brother through enough blog-related photography for a lifetime.) The snow made location scouting (aka whether it to take it outside our houses or inside) a bit difficult but nevertheless it came together, even if they aren’t the most glamorous pictures ever.
Can I just say: trying to replicate Gossip Girl style is hard (I’ve tried before)! The show was known for it’s amazing fashion, and Eric Damian really did pull out all the stops – in fact, most of the characters were outfitted in designer ensembles, which again, makes it really difficult to figure out what from my closet was applicable to this link-up (and also because unlike me, the characters didn’t spend most of their time wearing jeans. Sigh.).
Sure, Serena typically doesn’t wear black/grayscale outfits but I it’s my usual color palette, so it’s what I wore! Plus, I wanted to make this look realistic and less costume-y, because some of the character’s traditional wardrobes are so drastically different from anything I would ever wear.
1. Who is your outfit inspired by and why did you pick that character?
My outfit is inspired by a laid-back Serena Van der Woodsen. I was complaining to Laura, not sure what to wear, and she found a small picture online of Serena wearing a piece that was very similar to that sweater/jacket I had in my closet!
2. Favorite Gossip Girl moment?
Well, I’ll be tallying up the number of people that say when Blair and Chuck got married (admittedly, this was a very cute moment). As opposed to a moment, I’m going to go with a whole “era” of the show: pre-pretentious Dan. He was my favorite character before he got all weird and “wannabe.” Anyone else with me?
Thanks again to Carrie, Michaela, and Courtney for hosting!
