Polka Dots and Gossip

Who else feels an emptiness in their life since Gossip Girl ended? Yeah, me neither. I did love that show, but I think the high school years were better and bitchier. I haven’t seen all of the last season yet (I’ll wait until it’s on Netflix), so don’t tell me who Gossip Girl is or what color plaid Dan wears in the last scene or who ends up in jail or who dies or whose mother is actually her sister and steals her boyfriend by sabotaging her real mother’s career and paying off the dean of NYU.

Wait, what was I talking about? Oh right, I got this dress because it reminds me of something Blair would wear (if it were about 10 times more expensive). I think Blair is my spirit animal.

Prepare to be impressed: Kristin, my fabulous (in her own way) other half, picked out this dress all by herself and got it for me for Christmas! Even more impressive: she got it because it reminded her of this dress I had pinned a while back.

Since the dress is very minimalistic and severe, I thought this flowery statement necklace made for a good mix. As for the heels…I call them my sexy leprechaun shoes. Just thought you should know.

Oh, and I made an impromptu announcement yesterday about a remix challenge. Be sure to check out the details if you didn’t already!
