The Scene
For the last few weeks, I've had a nagging feeling that the new guy on Gossip Girl looks like the poor man's version of someone I know.



And tonight I figured it out: The Riz!!! Of course, he too is a photographer and bona fide lady killer. Jinx.








Um, I've also had a nagging feeling Serena's always-on-display boobage CANNOT be God-given. Discuss.







The Outfit
Banana Republic top
Marni slacks

The Accessories
Forever 21 belt
Marimekko necklace
Marc Jacobs bag
Marni shoes

The Grade
A




The Scene



Was feeling somber today. But all black felt too blah. Added the playful accessories and, VOILA, boringness averted.






Thought this bold necklace from H&M would compliment the Marni pants and shoes. It's a whole lotta necklace for just $7. Love.





Feels like it could be straight off the Marni Spring 2009 runway.









Bought these heavy wool slacks a bit snug but they are Marni so I deal. Wear them a little high waisted and call it a day. I mean, they were only $30 at Crossroads.








Have been loving wide legs. Especially paired with my two most coveted pieces at the moment: a leather jacket and studded belt.



You have to get the proportions just right with voluminous pants. Too easy to look like the Michelin Man. Britney rocked em right (did I just say that???) on stage with Madonna recently - kept the heels high and the top fitted.







They feel so grown up.






And assertive.








Nerdy frames + wide legged trousers =

And what post would be complete without Heidi stealing my style. F.

We should just call her Feidi.

And I am so Michelin Man in wide-legs. :(

wow! nerdy frames + wide-legged trousers = i can't believe i "rock" something linked with style, as a person with a stuffy career that demands conformity to boring dark suits.

and btw, i don't think heidi (ugh) steals your style. i think she fails miserably at attempting to replicate it. she is the very definition of a "hot mess" and you are the complete opposite!

I agree that wide-legs are grown up...I bought a pair of wide-leg jeans a couple months ago and feel like they add instant sophistication. Although they do require heels, which makes me even more of a giant among the mini Chileans. The price of fashion!

Re: Blake/Serena's cleavage, I've never given them a second thought and have just assumed she got some good genes. Although I am now scouring the internet for pictures and beginning to wonder, I still feel like from how she comes across in interviews she's not the fake boobs at 21 type.

i love wide leg pants -- they are a nice balance for my pear-shaped body. ;)

OMG you go the bicolor tights - swooon!
And I love that H&M/Marni necklace - what an incredible find!
Also, I agree with you that Serena's may not be originals, but they fit her frame so I think it was a good aug!

Ana said...

Love that H&M necklace...is it from their Marimekko-inspired collection? Now I'm kicking myself for not grabbing it! Love the whole look!

JillFantastic said...

Those ta-ta's are definitely fake, but I wouldn't kick em outta bed!

Jean Bean said...

GET! OUT! I wore the same necklace that day!

MissJordyPants said...

I'm thinking the boobage is natural... and fabulous.

Adore the wide leg... just bought my second pair and I can't wear them enough. They'll be a holey hot mess just in time to go out of style again.

harp said...

Tiffany said...
