Y’all, I am so excited about this Gossip Girl Linkup by The Monogrammed Midwesterner! I read the books in middle school, but I was never really able to follow the show because it interfered with my dance class schedule. Around Thanksgiving, my boyfriend suggested that we watch the show to see what the hype was about, and the rest is history! I watched the final episode Friday night, and my mind. is. blown.
For my outfit inspiration, I decided to channel Lily Bass.
I know everyone is all “Team Serena” or “Team Blair,” but I’m all about Lily Bass. Lily is so poised and is very graceful. I also love her blunt honesty – she knows she has made mistakes, but she has owned up to them.
Lily’s style is very chic, and this Ralph Lauren dress reminded me of something she would wear – it’s classic, but the leather accents on the sleeves gives it a little something extra. The riding boots are also a classic piece.
As for my favorite Gossip Girl moment, I love the last episode. I don’t want to spoil too much, but I think that it was the best possible way to end the Chuck and Blair storyline, especially given the scandalous nature of their relationship.
