Blair Waldorf: Fashion Icon

In honor of Gossip Girl's premiere tomorrow night, I am reposting my Blair post from last fall. It doesn't include my favorite spring outfits but these were the ones that got me hooked!

Have a great holiday weekend everyone!

I love Blair's style more and more each week on "Gossip Girl." Unfortunately I can't always find the pieces for myself but here are my current favorite outfits/styles:

PB Kids sale

Thispink and green towel is $9.99!

Crazy for bows!

I started looking on Forever21 and found a bunch of great picks. But then I just kept finding more and more cute bow items so I limited this post to the first 5 things I found (hey, it's the first week of classes and I am super busy!). I promise to do a part 2 very soon :)



Dress (called the Yachting dress)

Well it has been just about 2 months since I left Australia. I miss Melbourne and my life there a lot.

N comes to visit DC
New York
Las Vegas
Pittsburgh (GO STEELERS!)
Halloween (Coldplay concert!)
Inauguration (I can't believe I am going to be in DC for this-so exciting!!!)

New favorite sandals

Months ago Coterie featured adorable pink sandals by Pour La Victoire. I waited and waited for them to go on sale (on Revolve they still haven't). Then the other day my sister found them on Amazon for over $100 less. Certain colors (black, white, light grey, red, and yellow) are on sale for $55.98 (It worked out because pink is more expensive, not in my size, and not practical for work). Plus right now Amazon has a 20% off promotion for summer shoes so these are now $44.78!! plus you can get FREE SHIPPING! They are still $150 on other sites! Click on the Amazon link above to see these great sandals

Ann Taylor Loft purchases and coupon

I saw this dress on Another Online Mom's blog and knew I had to have it! I went into the store today because they have a coupon for 25% off AND for every $50 you spend you get a $25 gift card to be used later this fall. I bought the dress, a cute cardigan, and skirt. I couldn't find a photo of the skirt online but it is perfect for job interviews/my internship.

Coupon code: "10701098" (through 8/24)

Cute overload

Yesterday was the motherload. Today is the overload. Check out Restoration Hardware Baby and Child right now. It may even be cuter than Pottery Barn! What I am loving (they do have other color combinations like brown and blue but I LOVE pink and brown!):

For those of you with kids they also have clothing!

Lilly motherload!

Thanks to great advice from some fellow DC/VA/MD bloggers I checked out Filene's Basement and found tons of Lilly Pulitzer! I tried on some skirts and dresses. I found one dress I really loved but it was still over $100-I decided to go back again this weekend and see if it is worth it or not (I am thinking yes). Another thanks to google maps. Using this handy search I found out that Rockville, MD has a TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, and Filene's all within a couple of miles of each other! Perfect afternoon trip to find some fun things for the swaps I am in.

In other news one of my new favorite bloggers, I Pick Pretty, gave me the Diamond Blogger Award. Snazzy! I would like to pay it forward to:
Pretty in Pearls
The Pied-a-Terre (don't know how to do that accent thing, sorry!)
Well, That's Just Fabulous
Peeptoe Pumps and Pearls

Today I am off to Ikea to return the adorable pink dresser that was broken in the box. Very annoying!
