I tend to dress more like Blair, more classic less trendy. I do get style ideas from Serena, but I think she tends to trend overload whereas I would take one thing I like and work into my clothes which tend to be more classic.
^ ITA. I get more inspiration for my wardrobe from Blair, but I do appreciate Serena's style and do really love a lot of her clothes. Blair's wardrobe is more age appropriate for me though I do need to take it down a notch sometimes.
I like Blair's style more as well but in real life I find I usually dress more like Serena. Fo r some reason Blair's style seems more high maintenance, maybe a bit stuffy whereas Serena's style is definitely more comfortable and laid back.
Same with me. I would fell really out of place and akward it I when to class or hung out in down dress like Blair.
Because for some people, religion is found in an ashram in India, while for others, it comes in the form of a CW teen drama that captivates us every Wednesday night at 9 p.m. While we’re asking–make that begging–Santa Claus to make us the next Serena van der Woodsen and Blair Waldorf, we figured that until the trust funds and perfect hair kick in, we’ll satisfy ourselves with picking the perfect pressies to go under those oh-so-exclusive holiday trees of our favorite fictional characters.
1- Blair’s already obsessed with Erickson Beamon and here’s another reason why. The perfect final touch to an outfit by Eleanor Waldorf.

2- Because vertical stripes are slimming. What better way to pay tribute to their favorite shopping spot than with a Henri Bendel teapot?

3- Just in case financial woes arise, a gossip girl should always have a back-up plan. But no one needs to know its from a cheap mass market chain–obvs just tell everyone it was purchased in Paris, on your summer abroad.

4- Upper East Siders know there’s ALWAYS another party/masquerade ball/cotillion around the corner, and you need to accessorize in the most luxe, one-of-a-kind way possible. We love this “Moon” necklace with diamond accents from Yohji Yamamoto’s “Stormy Weather” line with Mikimoto, inspired by the 28 cycles of the moon.
Yohji Yamamoto “Stormy Weather” Mikimoto one-of-a-kind limited-edition necklace, $270,000. www.stormyweatherjewelry.com
5- Because orgiastic pleasures of the flesh and dangerous liaisons are what make us think that living vicariously through this show totally makes up for not having a social life of our own. This beer keg of perfume is not only super-elite and allows you to refill from the comforts of your own home, it’s also made by a pedigreed man–Kilian Hennessy, of the LVMH Hennessys, has just the right amount of cachet, as, say, an Archibald, pre-embezzlement fiasco, of course.
by Kilian’s Liaisons Dangereuses fountain-sized fragrance “keg,” $2,500, available at Bergdorf Goodman
6- Because sometimes you feel like being evil and manipulative but other times you want to be all innocence and roses. Makeup will help you get there.
Too Faced Good Girl/Bad Girl Palette, $29.50, www.toofaced.com
7- This gift set of perfumed candles and hand-engraved notecards takes inspiration from the seven deadly sins. So the next time you accidentally sleep with your best friend’s boyfriend you can write her a chic note to apologize, and sign it–what else? XOXO
D.L. & Co. Seven Deadly Sins Gift Set, $225, www.barneys.com
I love Blairs blazer in this picture. Since finding a similar one with the striped trim would probably be hard, I'm thinking about adding some striped fabric (or perhaps ribbon, if I can find a diagonally striped ribbon and make that work..) to the edges of a solid color blazer.
(I know we're not supposed to quote pictures, but this is so many pages back )
These girls are probably so excited about their clothes. I remember Rachel Bilson when she was on The O.C, she always mentioned how she loved the clothes she had to wear and stuff.. but this doesn't even compare!!
