Inspired By :: Gossip Girl Style

Gossip Girl here...xoxo! I'm not going to lie, I'm going through MAJOR withdrawals over Gossip Girl already and it hasn't even ended. With tonight's finale comes a mourning of the drama, Chuck Bass, and most importantly, the fashion.

I've always been a huge Blair Waldorf fan, and would willingly become one of her minions just for the uniform. Ms. Waldorf always had a flair for classic pieces, vintage shapes, and super chic patterns. I wanted to pay tribute to the Gossip Girl fashion and the end of the show today by trying to incorporate all of it. Look, I even made you guys a video. CRAZY! Let me know what you think.

 Classic Blair. I've always been a huge fan of the headbands, even before GG, but B just reinforced that love (and made it sooooo easy to find great headbands!). It's crazy to think that a TV show single-handedly brought such a simple trend to the fore-front, but after Blair rocked the head piece for a season, there were headbands everywhere, in every color. I worked up quite the collection myself.

Thankfully, even though the show is over, Gossip Girl style can live on. Stealing Blair Waldorf's signature look is easier than hooking up with Dan (which apparently, is the easiest). Look for classic pieces with vintage shapes but keep it modern with the colors and patterns you choose. Ms. Waldorf always loves a bow, lace, or something sparkly, so don't be afraid to girl it up.

I wonder if we'll find out who GG is? Until tonight! xoxo.....AJ

What I Wore :: Bar Bites

Today's outfit has a few familiar pieces to it - I know you've seen the flats before, and I've worn this jacket and these jeans in recent posts. And you might be seeing a lot of repeats over the next few days, actually - we're moving! I'm currently in the process of boxing up all of my dresses and heels to get ready to move into our new home.

 Tonight we hit up Bravo! for some bar bite appies and a Sam Adams Octoberfest - you can basically get a burger and fries for $3.95 from 4-7 (score!). After that, a walk-thru of our new house and a trip to Target. Yep, it's all excitement over here.

 Still loving these Sole Society Kirby flats for every day glam. I'm trying to grow my flat collection, because I'm reaching for them again and again for every day errands and things. But I find it hard to find cute ones I really like. So when I find a pair that really pulls a whole outfit together and makes it feel polished, I snap them up. I'm eyeing a couple more pairs from SS right now, actually!

Anyway, it's almost like an impromptu 30 for 30! Remix!! I'm so looking forward to setting up a new closet and having a ton of room for all of my shoe babies.
