Part 2 of 2: Money and Scandal
Oh Sage. Weird pattern on the tank top, a necklace that looks like it was made by a toddler and... jeans? Who wears JEANS on Gossip Girl?!
What is this? Secret Life of the Pregnant American Teen? We have no time for normal teenage fashions.
She redeemed herself, though. Loved the jaunty little fedora perched on her head (also loved her side-braid, very Serena-ish of her), even if it does look like it came from the Bergdorf's children's department.
A tad over-accessorized in the key of Vanessa (is all of this to give us flashbacks to earlier seasons?), but I approve of Sage's flowy, girly printed dress for the horse show. But was I the only one who thought Serena looked a little out of place?
The wispy cocktail dress with purple pom-poms (what even?!) and bejewelled necklace are more befitting for a cocktail party Then again, S did wear this to brunch:
Oh, hai there, Diana! That color looks great on you!
Oh, my bad. I totally thought you were Diana in that dress.
I know, S, I'm not sure why you're wearing a skintight dress to brunch, either. But then, I don't know why you make any of the choices you do at brunch. Or at any other time.
Also seems Serena inherited Lily's ability to wear 10,000 pound earrings.
I think I've figured out your brunchwear choice. Could it be, well, this:
Heaving cleave, check.
Just another day with S.
Speaking of sleepwear, pop quiz: who wore it better - Sage or Nate?
I'm going to give this one to Sage. Because she's a teenage girl and doesn't know better. And because I'm just bored by Nate.
To be completely honest, I could've dug into the YKYLF archives and found a picture of Nate in a suit from one of last year's episodes, or even one from two years ago, and you guys probably wouldn't have noticed. I know I wouldn't have, and it's my job to notice.
Same old, same old. Le yawn.
Across the bridge in Brooklyn there are even more yawns. Hopefully Rufus got rid of some plaid along with those boxes he chucked... at least he's moved onto checks?
No, the loss of plaid isn't a step forward. Rufus is boring in whatever he wears.
I was, however, in like with Ivy's casual-just-going-through-Rufus'-things-to-blackmail-someone outfit. I may have copied it already. And props to her for accessorizing perfectly.
Well played, Chivy. I may not trust you. Or care about you. But I like your style.
I also like how this random (but maybe not random?) guy's tie totally complements his blue button-up. He must be taking tips from Chuck. Maybe he and Chuck are working together, not him and Bart, hmm.*
