Yesterday, I attended a Gossip Girl themed event organised by the lovely ladies at Bloggers Love Hub. I have to confess that I'm a huge Gossip Girl fan and can easily spend 6 days in a row just watching the entire series once again.
So, when the invitation to the event advised everyone to dress as a favourite character from the series, I instantly knew I'd go as Blair Waldorf aka Queen B.
Blair was always a step ahead of the rest of the gang. As she knew what she wanted, she never had to dress to impress. Her style was simply immaculate and she oozed confidence no matter what she wore.
Although I don't have designer wardrobe and can't fly to Paris to do a bit of shopping, I've always liked classic and polished looks like hers. Shift dresses, pencil skirts and blouses are my thing.
Hence, yesterday I decided to opt for a black skirt, blazer and a cream blouse with a bow tie I bought a few years ago. The blouse has a nice lace finish on the collar but sadly you can't see it on the photos. To top up the entire look, I added a structured bag and pop of colour in the form of two tone heels.
What do you think? Did I manage to channel my inner Blair?
