I was obsessed with Gossip Girl since the books written by Cecily von Ziegesar came out. The series had a good amount of drama, there is no doubt about that, but what I was really excited about was the fashion. Every single time a new season came out I would always be inspired by each outfit adorned by Serena Van Der Woodsen (Blake Lively) and Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester).
You can imagine my disappointment when they brought the series to an end and revealed who the real Gossip Girl was. Wasn't that the only secret 'she' was never meant to reveal? -And I use 'she' loosely because it was (SPOILER ALERT!)...Dan Humphrey. I'm sure a fashionista like you, who watched the series, already knew that. Of course the fashion wardrobe on the series was out of most of our budget's because they were designer duds, however; we get our outfit inspirations that way anyway.
If only they could bring back a new season, but otherwise, I guess I shall stick to other series' to cure my fashion obsession. And what I am also hoping for is a Kenyan series that will have a great wardrobe such as Gossip Girl.
In the mean time, here are some of my favorite outfits by S&B:
