I was watching the CW's Gossip Girl last night not because I thought I was going to see the best acting on television (although Blake Lively's performance was certainly enlightening and refreshing to watch), but because of the fashions! This is supposed to be Sex and the City Lite, where all the people are pretty, and the clothing, impeccable. There were some very pretty frocks featured, since in only the first episode, there were already TWO parties that took place. Throw in some preppy school uniforms that HAD to be accented with designer duds like Chanel, and this show can easily become a walking ad for all the fashion houses.
One piece that caught my eye was Serena's gold sequined top for her date with Dan. She dressed it down with a jacket and long scarf over it, so it was more boho-chic and not disco diva. Remove everything and only wear it with a gorgeous tan, and I think it's a dress for all seasons. I scoured the web to find out more about it, and only came upon this article. They mentioned that items from the show were going to be featured on their website and will be for sale, but the CW site doesn't seem to have this feature up and running yet.
Anyhow, I'll probably keep watching because the storyline is interesting thus far (I know that this is shallow drivel...this is why it's called "guilty pleasure" and no different from The Hills, imho), but looking forward to seeing all the fun fashions they're going to put on screen. At least, until the REAL Sex and the City opens up in the theatres.
P.S. Loved Serena's mom's purse...it looked like an ostrich Hermès Birkin
