Tonight is the season premiere of Gossip Girl. I am attempting to hold back my extreme excitement over one of my favorite guilty pleasures. Gossip Girl not only brings the drama on screen but it also brings some of the most fashionable style on the characters. The prim and propper Blair Waldorf brought back the headband trend along with structured handbags, while Serena van der Woodsen gives us her edgy laid-back looks.
We have a sneak peak at one of the handbags you will see on the premiere tonight! A new character to the Gossip Girl set, Joanna Garcia is rumored to be the love interest of Nate Archibald. Tonight with the introduction to Joanna Garcia, whose name is Bree on the show, we see her carrying the Be & D Cosette Satchel in Navy. (more…)
Today I got an email with a complaint about us covering Gossip Girl on Purse Blog. Ok, I see your point. This is a handbag website and covering a TV show that is not about handbags may seem a bit off topic. But you must give it to Gossip Girl for having some of the most bold, fun, young, hip, and daring styles! And one of the things that Gossip Girl stylist Eric Daman does best is accessorize the characters.
This week we found Blair Waldorf, Leighton Meester, carrying around a classic yet hip crocodile tote. This tote is one of my favorites, as it is a Sang A Bag. We have covered Sang A on Purse Blog before and I have loved her different uses of materials, modern lines, and sleek styles. The River Tote has been the bag on my lust after list (in YELLOW PYTHON!). Blair Waldorf carried a different version of the River Tote, and I must admit that I am in love!
The Sang A River Tote in African Crocodile was the bag of choice for character Blair Waldorf as she made her way onto Yale’s campus. The bag signifies tradition, elegance, and class while being able to be worn by a young 20 year old and not look old. The bag worked perfectly for all of her outfits and I am officially in love with Sang A bags all over again! The River Tote is a staple for Sang A and is available in a wide variety of colors and materials. The specific bag Blair was seen carrying retails for $9,440 at Sang A online. (more…)
This is a late post to have you remember the last Gossip Girl and be prepared for GG tonight!
ZOMG, y’all. Gossip Girl! Queen Serena is back on top, and I don’t think Blair is going to take it very well. It’s Fashion Week in New York, Serena is hanging with a socialite named Poppy (perfect socialite name) and they’re playing a Connor Oberst song during the opening sequence (it’s called ‘New York City – Gone’ and you better iTunes it). Between my favorite clothes and my favorite indie rock, they’re practically calling my name this week – but to get the goods, you’ve got to make the jump. (more…)
Blake Lively as Serena, Leighton Meester as Blair, Amanda Setton as Penelope, Nicole Fiscella as Isabel, and Laura-Leigh as Amanda star in Gossip Girl on The CW.
Honestly, ladies, I love me some Gossip Girl. And now, by popular demand, you’re going to have a weekly recap from none other than, uh, me!
This week finds Serena, not-so-lonely-boy Dan, Chuck “I’m Chuck Bass” Bass, and Queen B (oh, and cougar-humping gigolo Nate, whose name on the show I had to Google, despite having seen every episode of the series at least once. He’s that boring) returning for their senior year of Upper East Side quasi-high school. Oh, and Lil’ J and Eric probably go back to school too, but their story arcs are going nowhere at the moment (although I really want Eric to have a cute little boyfriend!). As always, the good stuff (and spoilers) are after the jump. (more…)
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.
