"And Who Am I?"

 "And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell. You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl."

Hello Lovelies!! 

So, isn't the very opening of this post reminiscent of what this post is gonna be all about? Well you guessed it right...its GOSSIP GIRL!!

I promise not to tell you in-depth about what the show is (which you probably do know!!) or how much every girl world over raves over the fashion set-up of the show or dreams to get a chance to live that life once so as to be able to wear all that wonderful stuff. I certainly am one of those and the reason this post is about Gossip Girl is because I just can't be done watching a back-to-back run of its episodes :p (EVER!!)


The entire theme of the show is based on something we all love and is very much a part of our lives i.e. BLOGGING. The show is narrated by an omniscient yet unseen blogger who digs into the scandalous and webbed lives of the Manhattan elite. Moreover, the show stars the 'FASHION IT' GIRLS Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen and Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf. We know that already..don't we??
I certainly believe that this is the power of art, in this case writing (as Gossip Girl is based on a book titled the same written by Cecily von Ziegesar) as well as cinema/filming. Art has the power of conceiving a thought process, giving it a defined shape and character and infusing it into our minds, till the very gap between fiction and reality vanishes. There comes that sublime state where you start believing the magic world of Harry Potter or feeling the pain when Blair sheds a tear in isolation.


Coming over to another aspect of my blog now and that is my outfits :) If you love clothes as much as I do, you would agree with me, that sometimes your clothes talk to you :) Say, I proved I swear by fiction :p
So, for some time now I have been ideating wearing basic shorts with formal/semi-formal blouses in Chiffon, Georgette, Lace and Crepe. I have attempted to do the same with the following outfit:






I wore a Georgette floral print shirt (worn here) with basic black shorts. I felt that the floral shirt imparts a semi-formal look to the entire outfit (because of the fabric) hence I accessorized the look by wearing a pearl necklace and cocktail ring (also worn here). I also wore a multi-coloured cuff (worn here) and nude bracelets.




In order to balance the formal setting of the shirt and the accessories with the comfort shorts are meant to impart, I paired the outfit with simple ballerina's and a black hobo.


Wearing:

Georgette floral shirt: Local boutique in Dubai
Black shorts and Ballerina's: Thrifted from Delhi
Bag: Vincii
Bracelets and Cocktail Ring: Thrifted from Australia
Cuff: Forever 21
On my nails: Revlon 404 Siren

I leave you all with a few memorable quotes from Gossip Girl :):)

1. " Whoever said that money doesn't buy happiness didn't know where to shop."
                                                                  -Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf
2. "Well I'm sorry I'm not who you thought I was, but what's happened is in the past, and all I can do is try to change. If you can't accept that, then you're not who I thought you were."
-Blake Lively as Serena van der Woodsen
3. "You don't know a good thing until it's gone. And found something else."
                   -Kristen Bell as Gossip Girl
4. "Usually I have a "never say never" policy, but for you I'll make an exception."
-Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf
5. "'m not anyone, I'm me."
-Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf
Thank you for stopping by...
Love
Agam

  12. @SuzyQ: Thank you so much!! Tan/nude heels is THE thing..esp because they serve many purposes.
    If you are looking for them specifically in Chd you can check out Shoe Rack, Sector 8 and Shoe Tree Sector 17.
    I would personally recommend stores like Aldo and Zara as these stores offer quality superior to what any local store can offer. Besides I feel subtlety is the key when wearing nudes, so these stores promise that. Also you can get nude/tan pumps, peep-toes, sandals, gladiators et al. i.e. a wider ranger. Moreover, Zara and Aldo now are running on Sale :P
    hope you find the best pair!! would love to hear back from u :)
