Episode Synopsis: Ahhh freshman orientation…and orienting is happening for sure. Serena is a college dropout? Dan is popular? Blair is not Queen? And Nate and Bree get nakey? Drama…drama…drama.
Freshman orientation and what does Blair decide to wear? A dress borrowed from a politician’s wife. Although, she does rock the almost-peplum. Blair, honey, you did realize that you are going to college and not Chuck’s inauguration…right?
I’m starting to feel a little claustrophobic. Why are the necklines of Blair’s dresses so high? Again…COLLEGE! Loosen up a little, Miss Blair!
The only thing that saves this dress for me is the contrast of the yellow heel. Deep purple and yellow, in the words of Rachel Zoe, “bananas!”—and not just because the shoes are yellow.
Finally, I can breathe! The ruffle and pleated blouse with the floral skirt are sweet. Classic Blair Waldorf. Love the peachy color.
This is her rooftop party look? Blair’s got some leg-age going on, but I’m feeling a fancy bottle of mustard vibe. The blouse is kind of grandma-ish especially paired with the mustard yellow shorts. Although the shorts with…maybe a sequined top? Oh wait…that is what Serena would wear!
We are left with the image of Blair in this striped dress. Immediately there was something off about this dress. First, I thought it was a little sporty for our classic-loving sophisticate, but then I realized it was her necklace. It reminds me of a dog collar. Definitely not one of my favorite Blair looks.
