Life Unexpected Style: Lux at School

life unexpected style

It was hard to find the right dress for this Life Unexpected Lux Style Feature. I picked a dress from Mod Cloth, since I figure Lux would realistically shop there.  Aside from what I linked below, you might like this blue ruffled dress. I ended up picking three Modcloth dresses.

To complete this look, have some tousled, messy hair and wear a long pendant necklace and some knee-high boots.

In Gossip Girl “The Undergraduates” Blair and Serena are both seen in pajamas – silky robes, to be exact. Blair’s robe is from Ligne de Soie, as is Serena’s robe. But they are from different collections.

Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears the Chinois Single Layer Silk Kimono from The Vintage Collection. This is a black and white floral robe with red belt. There is never anything too simple about Blair Waldorf pajamas, you know?

Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) wears the Blancs de Noir Silk Robe from the Classic Collection. This is a classic white silky robe. For Serena van der Woodsen style, this is a simple, sexy and luxurious item.

undercovers clothing

Gugu Mbatha-Raw as Samantha Bloom on the new NBC show Undercovers. As a sexy spy, what do you suppose she wears? (Did you see Gugu Mbatha-Raw at The Emmy’s? She looked GORGEOUS, seriously!) Undercovers fashion for Samantha Bloom will be polished, professional, sleek, tailored and sexy. We’ll definietly be seeing some form-fitting stuff. She wears everything from dresses, suits, and leather jackets.

If you want to strut your stuff like a spy, we have you covered (pun!)

I found a great black dress with the same necklace for under $100. And for shoes, I tried to match her great black platforms with the rounded toe. In most pictures, Samantha is wearing a small watch with a black band. I finally found one that I liked by Armitron.

Something else I see Samantha wearing a lot are round diamond studs. Well, you can get cheap cz studs anywhere, so I tried to find an affordable pair of real diamond studs. I found some on sale for just $99, down from $285.

Dress like Serena van der Woodsen (Gossip Girl season 4)

gossip girl fashion

It’s hard to resist Gossip Girl fashion, it’s always so perfect. Blake Lively plays Serena van der Woodsen, and in an upcoming Gossip Girl episode she’s wearing a wonderful Diane von Furstenberg dress. I found that same one, and have it linked for you here. But I found less expensive options for the boots, bracelet and bag. Her actual booties are by Pierre Hardy and her actual bag is by Nancy Gonzalez (3k!) I’ve also included a belt, as Serena does belt her dress to give her waist some definition. I kept the booties closed-toed, because it’s getting too cold for open-toed booties. Dress like Serena van der Woodsen with the following elements…

Life Unexpected Lux Style: Season 2

Tuesday, September 28th, 2010

Criminal Incriminated

Do you love Lux Cassidy (Britt Robertson) on Life Unexpected? Sometimes she seriously annoys me, but she has that hip Seattle style down pat!I love her Life Unexpected clothes a lot.

Whoever is the costume designer to pick the Life Unexpected clothing items for Lux is very smart and considerate. Lux’s outfits are both covetable and look affordable, even if you don’t use exact clothing matches.

What Lux does is layer a ton of things. Harness Lux’s look with a few key style elements. She isn’t a sloppy dresser, but she dresses to look casual for the cool Portland atmosphere. Here, she’s layered a funky tank under an off the shoulder shirt, and layered a long pendant necklace over that. She’s got her ever-present knit beret on, a large messenger bag, and dark denim jeans. While we can’t see them in this picture, I’d bet she’s also wearing her large hoops. Wear some light lip gloss for the full effect.

Gossip Girl Fashion for Less: Blair’s Red Dress in Paris

Sunday, September 19th, 2010

Double Identity

The red ruffle dress Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wears on Gossip Girl in Paris is by Oscar de la Renta. But, since getting that dress is both impossible and impractical, I went looking for something more wearable for your average gal. What I found was a modern red dress with ruffle detailing for under $30. More than reasonable. And it’s of European design! Dress like Blair Waldorf for less, it might not be so hard.

Blair also wears a necklace. Something sparkly will do. But with this dress’s neckline, the exact similar sort of circular necklace wouldn’t look right.

In her hand, Blair has a long purple clutch. I know that red and purple can look fun together, but DEAR GOD why did she have this purple clutch? It should be black or oh God, any other color. I’d take blue or yellow or anything else. I think the problem is that it’s not even purple. It’s a magenta – not quite a pink. It just clashes. I refused to do purple, and gave you a cool red clutch instead. (She’s also wearing flip flops. Since ... Read More
