Blair trend- Prints

17 May

Prints are an eye-catching way to bring your outfit bang up to date, and Miss Waldorf is all too aware of this fact. Hence, her collection of beautiful print dresses and coats:

Of course, being Blair, she isn’t stepping out in Hawiian print shirts. Oh no. She has achieved an elusive goal: making eye popping prints demure and lady-like.

Maggie Gyllenhaal’s 2010 Oscar dress is a prime example of this:

She treads the thin line between eye catching and lady-like, and she does it with pizzaz and style, much like our own dear Miss Waldorf. But how do we, us mere mortals who don’t have the benefit of an army of stylists, achieve this look?

Well, like this:

The print is what makes the look, it’s the meat of the outfit. Luckily this flower-print babydoll dress is well up to the job.

An unusual shoe is need to take this outfit up a level, and these delightful heeled brouges do just that. I’m a brouge cynic, but even I fell in love with this adorable pair. Plus, the heavy shoe is lovely contrast with the floaty material of the dress.

This adorable white pearl handbag gives the outfit a classy boost, and the pearl and flower bracelet don’t hurt.

A bold necklace is needed, since the dress is quite low-cut, and this flower necklace delivers the goods without distracting us from the print of the dress.

Last but not least, a Blair Waldorf hairband gives this outfit and Upper East Side twist, ready for any aspiring Park Avenue Princess. Very garden-party-in-Central-Park.

And here’s my style look, courtesy of looklet.com:

I apologise for the shoes…the choice of shoes at looklet are appalling, and the few ones that they do have always look…well, weird. They have a fab choice of dresses though.

Hugs and kisses,

My very first post…or, a Mission Statement.

16 May

I,  Emily *mumblemumblemumble*, promise to do everything in my power to make celebrity style accessible and easy to imitate.  Failing that,  I promise to cringe at hideous outfits and swoon at gorgeous ones.

I will attempt to update this blog as often as possible, and to put lots of prety pictures in, while not skimping on the writing.

I will try to make this blog a success. Failing that, I will carry on updating the blog, because I’m not going to give up dammit.

Hugs and kisses,

Emily
