I just got done watching an episode of one of my absolute favorite shows, Gossip Girl. You may recall, I was planning to do a recap of every episode like I do for Project Runway, but gathering the pictures and IDing the fashions in a timely manner proved to be harder than expected, so I scrapped that idea recently (which made me very sad!).
Gossip Girl is still one of the most fashion-forward and style-conscious shows on television, so from time to time, when I spot something particularly fabulous on the series, I’ll post about it.
Today’s feature is a bit of a throwback, and a good example of how things can often look much more interesting when worn than they do in pictures online. I spotted the Foley + Corinna Jet Setter Jr. Tote in cream leather worn by Lydia Hearst on the first season finale, and it immediately seemed much more chic than I expected. I’m usually not a huge fan of “north-south” shaped totes, particularly those meant to be worn in the crook of the arm. To me, they can easily look awkward, but the Jet Setter tote looked like it would be the perfect size on a normal-sized woman (Ms. Hearst, as you can see, hardly exists).
This season, Foley + Corinna has made the bag in a gorgeous bright blue patent that is wearable in virtually any season, and as you probably have realized by now, I’m an enormous fan of patent (or, possibly, just easily distracted by shiny things). The color is very saturated and even, which is only highlighted by its beautiful sheen.
And as with all of their bags, the price point on this one is great – $528 via ShopBop.
