Serena Van Der Woodsen- a wardrobe to die for.

So i've already done a post of the style of the fabulous Blair Waldorf so here's for our other dominant NYC girl. Gossip Girl's Serena has a completely different style to Blair however with the same heights of glamour. Where you would see Blair dress to every inch of pristine perfection, Serena is a little less careful with her outfits adding edge and seductiveness.

This dress is gorgeous by Mary Katrantzou. This is seen at Blairs Tiffany (yes Tiffany!) bridal shower. Such a gorgeous pattern with the element of fun and feistiness this dress is flattering fabulous.

Serena's summer wardrobe is one of my favourites! Eric Daman obviously loves to experiment with a pop of colour and clashing making Serena a summer goddess. Her gorgeous blonde locks of course add to this!

In complete contrast to summer, Serena's selection of coats is just as perfect as Blairs. A selection of stunning coats is essential for the cold and frosty streets of NYC.

Doggy confectionary

Here is Rosie my gorgeous 8 year old Weimaraner eating a 'doggy ice cream' from the dog confectionary stall at the market. Markets are definitely not my kind of thing but this stall is too cute to resist.

What's in my bag?

I think its every girls duty to do a 'what's in my bag?' post, exposing what we consider our absolute essentials.
Here's mine ...
My bag is from River Island.
What's inside?
Ted Baker purse- obviously essential
Carex hand sanitiser- you don't know where you will be and who you will touch, hello germs
Elle umbrella- with English weather do I need to explain?
Tangle Teezer- Every girls MUST HAVE
Victoria's Secret student planner and pen- keeping organised, a life saver
Compact- makeup check!
Tissues- you never know when you'll need them
Paracetamol- likewise with tissues, nothing worse than feeling horrible
Vaseline- everyone should carry one, no explanation needed
Chewing gum- perfect teeth and fresh breath
A fresh Mac Creme cup lipstick- my favourite lipstick, it goes with every outfit (I go through so many of this shade that I replace them on a regular basis). I usually carry the lipstick that i'll be wearing that day too.
Benefit mini perfume- to smell heavenly at all times
Too faced blusher and mirror- touch up!
Mac brush 168SE- also touch up!

Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball

Every girls dream, Tiffany ...
The Tiffany & Co. Blue Book Ball took place in New York last night drawing in some glamourous ladies with some fabulous shades of blue! Not only did we see some amazing gowns these ladies were lucky enough to be wearing Tiffany jewellery to sparkle their way through the night.

My favourite look of the night
Kate Hudson wears a  Tiffany blue, Reem Acra gown which allows her to flaunt her flawless figure. Strapless and with a slit up the side to show off her amazing pins, this gown is stunning. Her flowing, blonde curls add sophistication to this simple but phenomenal ensemble.

Michelle Williams, wearing Katie Ermilio and Gywneth Paltrow wearing Ralph Lauren both choose a deep blue satin.
I love the experimentation with neckline and sleeves. Simple hairstyles are enough to gather the true impact of these gowns. Michelle wore Tiffany cluster earrings worth £150,000 whereas Gwyneth wears Tiffany legacy earrings and a  black opal montana sapphire diamond broach worth £110,000.

Jessica Biel also wears a deep blue however with a slight pattern. The fitted waisted line and halter neck contributes towards this gowns perfection along with loose curls. This creation is by the wonderful Elie Saab.

High society fashionista Sarah Jessica Parker wears a Vicky Tiel vintage creation. SJP has worn this shade in the past and not many would able to make this metallic greeny look this good.

Our Gatsby girl Carey Mulligan also stays away from blue with this Victoria Beckham suit. Powerdressing to a tee. Carey brings complelte feminity to this masculine suit and I love the open sleeves and sleek satin neckline.
She also wears Tiffany drop earrings
worth £55,000.

Poppy Delevingne wears this on tend Dolce and Gabbana creation. Dolce and Gabbana certainly impressed me on the catwalk with their vivid designs which are worn perfectly by Poppy especially with gold sandals. Once again we see gorgeous blonde locks that perfect the outfit. Evidently blonde and Tiffany blue are a perfect match.

Blair Waldorf; every girls dream wardrobe

This blogpost has been a long time coming. I am in a state of despair over Gossip girls ending, the most fashionable TV show ever. Eric Damn, the Gossip Girl stylist, is an artist.This is my chance to share my favourite ensembles of my favourite character Blair Waldorf, played by Leighton Meester, high society girl and complete fashionista. I am obsessed with such an iconic style. Her most fashionable ensembles and obviously favourites of Eric Damn are designed by Oscar de la Renta, Jenny Packham and Naeem Khan also three of my favourite designers.
My absolute favourites

These are my personal favourites and what many would consider the most iconic outfits of the series. So flattering, fabulous and flawless. I'm sure many of you would agree.

Winter in New York calls for a fabulous range of coats and Blair owns them in every style and colour necessary.

Power dressing
Blair is the epitome of women striving to be powerful and dominant and what more to do this than by her wardrobe. Whether this is her placement at W or playing Queen B she works this to its full potential. Fashion makes Blair get what she wants, it works.

Fashion dominance

Power leads to power dressing which leads to dominance in the fashion world. Blair is the perfect example of the rise of a dominant woman which is shown through her amazing designer ensembles. A lover of fashion week and avid to keep up with the latest trends means Blairs wardrobe is fresh and fabulous.
