xoxo gossip girl

The news that Season 6 of Gossip Girl will be the last is expected, but sad nonetheless.
Picking up where The O.C left off, Gossip Girl has been my fave show since 2007, with Blair Waldorf becoming my TV idol as we watched her life move from High School Princess, to interning at W Magazine and fleetingly becoming an actual princess (Only on TV!).
My obscure pairing preferences aside (hello Nate and Jenny, and Blair and Dan!), GG has been a staple conversation topic for the past 6 years, and I will certainly miss the weekly dose of fashion and drama. Here is a bunch of the the best fashion, quotes and boys that Gossip Girl has so graciously provided over the years .

Fashion Weekend

For those of you who attended Fashion Weekend, you will understand when we say the event was synonymous with mixed emotions; The thrill of purchasing the likes of Wild Fox rings for only $30, intermingled with strains of guilt where the logical part of your consciousness says "you idiot you've spent all your money again!". Nonetheless, such thrill inevitably overpowered any sort of negativity when Ellese and I came home and reviewed our purchases from Otto Mode, Toi et Moi, bec & bridge, camilla & marc and Girls with Gems to name a few! The event took all the fashion must-haves from Mercedes Fashion Week and made it accessible to all us LIP's (Less important people) as we were able to indulge in designer brands for up to 50% less than their recommended retail price! A marketing strategy was clearly at work through the purchasing procedure, namely when 'buying' your desired item, you merely had to give your details and in return receive a recepit. This was all very well and good as it allowed shoppers the luxury of free hands whilst they hastily sorted through endless racks of clothes, but not so great when the time came to hand in said receipts and pay for the culmination of figures. Nonetheless, everyone seemed to be glowing and there was a pervading sense of like-mindedness in the room where individuals were bounded by a love for fashion and excitement over discounts. If you didn't get a chance to go this year, it's definitely worth attending next year and totally worth the entry fee!  Hope everyone is having a lovely week xx

After hours of frustration regarding HTML codes and custom domains, our blog is finally back up and running and I have recently acquired a whole new level of respect for Mark Zuckerberg!

More importantly, the past few weeks have been a fashion frenzy with both Mercedes Fashion Week and Shop Til You Drops very own Fashion Weekend! As I skipped uni today to go hard out on my Media essay, I'll leave you with a promise to post updates on said events in the upcoming week. 

Until then, heres a Happy Mothers day shout out to my Mum! Love you xxx
