Lying Fridays #5: Embracing Pattern

 "Upper East Side Queens aren't born at the top. 
They climb their way up in heels, no matter who they have to tread on to do it."
- Gossip Girl


The return of Gossip Girl was recently, and quickly lies have started building...
 but we're not here for that, let's talk fashion!



This season of Gossip Girl has almost been disappointing in terms of Blair's outfits, 
maybe it has something to do with her hair? I'm not quite sure. 
But I've gotta say I think i have loved all of Serena's looks, 
and some of Blair's.

One thing i have noticed from the latest episodes is an embracing of pattern. 
The girls have been mixing, flaunting and pulling off some standout prints. 


So today I gave it a go for Lying Fridays #5...


Mixing prints and bright colours would have been a bit much for me to handle 
so instead i opted for sort of muted colours.

But if you want the full Gossip Girl effect,
 pump up the colour content, 
try mixing those too!



A chunky blingy necklace, some heels and detailed hair brought it all together for the day.


I chose to do an adapted milk maids braid. 
Covering up the origins of the braid, 
teasing the crown and pulling the rest into a bun...





Have you told any lies lately?
Till next time...

  5. Great outfit! Personally, I don't mix prints, I find it a little too outlandish for my taste, but I don't mind seeing it on people who knows how to work the trend :) You did a great job though, muted colours are a great start towards mixing different types of prints.

    Cheers,

  6. Adorable look.
    Gossip girl has amazing ideas for inspiration...but I agree, Blair's look has been toned down this season

  8. This outfit is gorgeous! You're right about the style on Gossip Girl - they are definitely embracing more patterns! On the last episode, Serena wore a floral skirt and a striped shirt, and I really loved the combo!
