Budget Blair




The past week I've been cathing up with season 3 & 4 of Gossip Girl and I think it's kind of starting to reflect in the way I dress, haha. Ever since Gossip Girl started I've been in love with Blair Waldorf's preppy and girly style. I'd wear every single outfit she's worn on the show! Unfortunately she mostly wears McQueen, Marc Jacobs, Guiseppe Zanotti, Ralph Lauren etc etc etc.

Until I magically get rich, I'm gonna have to do with a jumper, bag and bow headband from Primark, Zara skirt, Topshop shoes and a blouse from Outofastrobe vintage. Which works wonderfully for now.

I love the polkadots and the nave blue/brown combination.

Admittedly, I don't watch Gossip Girl, I don't really watch TV at all to be honest. However, I've been told by multiple people to watch Gossip Girl, so maybe I'll give it a try?

I would recommend it! In the very beginning I didn't want to watch it either cause the title sounded so girly and airhead-y but the storylines are actually really good! It's basically about a couple of rich families in fabulous outfits, involved in lots of of drama, blackmailing, scheming, backstabbing, cheating. Love it!

Gossip girl: I've tried watching but it's seems just too vain and unreal to me.

XOXO haha

Blair is a fashion icon. The outfit she uses are so lovely and I also loved her high-school era. Now in college she is more...classic. (it's like I am talking about a real girl) But still..I love to be inspired sometimes by her classy style.

Laura @ The World Looks Red said...

Yeah, i noticed the headbands are gone and she's now wearing amazing designer dresses. I think the 'new look' is even more envy-inducing.

Raquel said...

believe me, you look even better than Blair Waldorf! especially in the late seasons of Gossip Girl.
love the mix between polka dots and the flower print (is it flower print??).

you have a very inspiring blog! congrats

We love Gossip Girl and often find ourselves channelling our inner Blairs and Serenas. Even though they wear mostly designer brands it's fun to create similar highstreet styled outfits.
Fond your blog via Teen Vogue and love what we have read so far - we will definitely be coming back for more!
