Style crush

Lately I've been catching up on Gossip Girl, starting right back at the pilot episode. I know I'm a bit late on the GossipGirl love but... LOVE!
I have to admit I have a bit of a style crush on these girls. They're like the SATC girls for the next generation. Almost every episode has something I love/want and the girls street style is just as amazing. My favourite looks so far (on and off screen)...

Blake Lively/Serena Van Der Woodsen: casual NY chic

The tousled hair, sloppy chic style, all worn with big confidence...

Think layers, subtle mismatching, designer grunge and minimal chic. Serena's style reminds me quite a bit of Ashley Olsen or Vanessa Hudgens
Want to wear it yourself? Check out The Row for breezy white tees and tanks to dress up or down, Sass and Bide for some bling under or over, or try some DIY for something absolutely unique.

Ok, next... Taylor Momsen, candy pink lipstick.

Such a bold look but unlike red the pink gives a girly, sweet twist to this trend.
Taylor totally rocks this look (although my fave "Jenny" style is more Season 2... a little less punk/rock, a little more girly) 

And 3rd: bright bold colour...

Vanessa's boho/gypsy look has me falling back in love with turquoise, big time. It makes everything look so vibrant and fresh (especially worn with white or orange) 

Check out local Australian designers Dinosaur Designs for some amazing pieces of bright, bold jewelry - definitely Vanessa worthy, especially pieces from their Bird, Fungi, and Tree & Me Ranges

And finally the prim and proper that is the Queen B.

I love her look in the show although I tend to go slightly towards the vintage/indie route with this style or rock it up a bit a la Missy Higgins, Hayley Williams, Kate Miller Heidke.
Try vintage/retro shops for the perfect dress or skirt/blouse combo. Etsy have some great stores or try RetroMetro or BoxVintage here in Brisbane for some great vintage/retro pieces.  

And finally, check out the Pierces. A sisterly duo from Alabama I first heard them in Gossip Girl, season 3  with their single "Secret" and "Three Wishes". Love it. Check it out here
