I’m not ashamed to say that I love Gossip Girl. And that I only just finished it – legitimately 20 minutes ago the last episode ever ended, time to give my computer a small break. It has only taken me 5 years. At least my slow-paced viewing allowed me more time to take in the artfulness of the clothing and styling. Once I dreamt of recreating these designs, in a totally non-plagiarised way.
If there is one thing the show has taught me it is the ridiculous cost of keeping up with the trends. We can’t all own a shearling coat and thigh-high boots and Fendi fluffball bags. So much easier to create your own style and stick with it, integrating elements of the current. That’s my philosophy.
In honour of ending this era it is time to bask in Blake Lively’s fashion glory – the wardrobe we all wish we had.
