Monday's not so bad when your bestie is back from Peru and whisks you away to a lovely patio lunch.
And in addition to tales of far off Inca lands, he comes bearing prezzies!!! A lovely BABY Alpaca scarf. In my signature purple, no less!!! He is too good to me.
The best Monday in a looong time is topped off with a glorious new episode of Gossip Girl. Mr. Diabolina is away on business so I sprawl out all over the living room and lap up the witty banter (WeeMo's transcripts are the best!) and the fashions! Recognize this two tone Marc dress with a bow? Have been loving it for ages!
And anyone notice Blair's pearl headband during the party? Just bought one at Forever last week! JINX. Donned it, tiara-style, to finish watching the episode. What.a.nerd!
In SATC parlance, I am a Carrie. Tonight I decide I am a Blair.
And a Leighton. Which means girly and classic and clean.
Love color blocking.
And bold colors.
But also adore beiges. Especially Phillip Lim beiges. With pockets!
And making even casual shorts look glam ;)
However, don't do edgy very naturally. This outfit is a total disaster area! I have a very similar leather skirt that I'm dying to wear this fall. Haven't worn it in over five years precisely because of the whole tummy situation seen here on Leighton. And F to her stylist for letting her walk out with so many trends (leather, sheer, blazer, gladiators) piled on at once.
Speaking of edgy misses, anyone seen Taylor Momsen IRL lately?
In addition to getting far TOO skinny, she is now trying to get part of the fashion pie. Trying to be edgy from the clothes to the hair to the makeup. But I'm not buying it, Little J.

B (for blah!)
Built the outfit around the necklace. Bought it right after grad school circa 2001. The top too. Love that they look like they were born to go together.
Was inspired by this DVF look I came across yesterday for my orange and pink post. So sherbert chic.
Paired it with demure beiges to make it boring for work. Sigh. And added this serpentine bracelet to make it fun for me. Sable Crow loved it too.
One last Gossip Girl image to leave you with. What do you think? I think I love the IDEA of it (statment necklace, flattering fit, fluttery jumpsuit) but not the reality. Sorry Blake. I am a Leighton.
