Lessons from the Upper East Side Part 1

Thursday, October 20, 2016

I'm SO excited for the newest collab on my blog! This one is with the beautiful Carolina who is a fashion blogger from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) that I met through Instagram. The one thing you can easily notice when you go through Carolina's Instagram is how her style resembles Blair Waldorf. I tweeted out one day how I wanted to do a collab with her with Blair-inspired outfits and that is exactly what we decided to do. We have a total of 4 looks but we decided to show our second look next week :)

Blair was my fashion inspiration for the LONGEST time; she still is to some degree but back then, it was pretty obvious. There was a point in high school where I would wear headbands ALL the time. Since I had a uniform, it was hard to experiment with my fashion choices so I'd usually have a scarf and/or headband to compensate. I had so many that I could wear a new one every day for a few weeks so bringing out some of those old pieces in my closet for this post was really exciting!

Outfit 1

  • This one screams Blair mainly because of the headband! This is actually an old headband of mine from literally 6 years ago and I thought it was perfect to wear with a suede dress. The gold zipper detailing matches the headband and the colours on the blanket wrap so everything feels very put together. If Gossip Girl was still on, I'm pretty sure Blair would be all over the blanket wrap trend.
  • Outfit Details
  • Dress - Forever 21 (old)
  • Headband - *Handmade from a local boutique*

  • Here's a sneak peek and the link to Carolina's post for her outfit and stay tuned for next week when we post our second look!

    Also, I was featured in Caroflina's latest vlog from the Toronto IMATs party with NYX Cosmetics! Watch the video below and be sure to follow all her social media: Blog, Instagram, Twitter, Youtube.
