Gossip Girl


I used to looove Gossip Girl, but frankly- and this is hard to admit in writing- since last year's season finale, I have found it to be a snooze-fest (EXCEPT and a big except here- that final scene with Chuck and Blair!). Anyone else feel this way? I am basically still watching for the witty C + B banter and fashions such as these...





I fear GG is headed for an O.C. ending...by the time that show ended in season 4, for me it wasn't too soon :( Thoughts?

What I'm Wearing Wednesday


Today is a rainy day in Boston, but I refrained from wearing my rain boots since I am going out to dinner tonight here. Here is what I am wearing:
  • Faux fur vest from Burlington Coat Factory- not sure the brand, but it was $20!
  • Anlo jeans
  • Black Old Navy turtleneck- from last year
  • Brown boots from Nordstrom- these are several years old, I think they are their BP brand
  • D&G watch from Neiman Marcus
  • OPI Little Red Wagon- fabulous red from their holiday 2008 collection!


What are you wearing today?

Halloween 2009 costumes


So here are my costumes this year- I finally decided over the weekend! Every year I like to have 2 costumes, since Halloween is so fun and all. This year, one was chosen for me- Saturday night I am going to my future step-sister-in law's bachelorette party! We are all being Robert Palmer "Addicted to Love" back up dancers:



Friday night, my bff from Syracuse and I are being football players:

I will also be in NYC this year... What are you being this Halloween?

Style you Sunday: fall wedding

My friend D asked me for some inspiration for an outfit for her to wear to a fall wedding coming up. Her challenge to me: to find a dressy dress that is not too tight and that can accommodate her "problem", her boobs... ha! I found a gorgeous trapeze dress, for under $120, in a fabulous bright color. Adding silver gem accessories and a luxe looking faux bur bolero for when it gets chilly, D will be all set for these nuptials!


Comment with an item for me to style for you on next week's Style you Sunday! :)
