My sister's fashion is very Gossip Girl

I have loved Gossip Girl from the beginning. I watched the trailer to the series months before its premiere and got super excited, as I loved the books. However to me the fashion seemed really old, I stopped wearing that look half way through my year in Tokyo. I just got sick of being told I was dressed "maid style" or "goth lol" (Gothic Lolita in English).

Me in my Gossip Girl-maid style-gothic lolita days, with The Spank Girls...basically they helped change my look.

My sister however has continued with that look, and was lucky to receive a lot of my hand me downs. As soon as I saw that Gossip girl was coming to Australian TV (on cable which I don't have but my sister has) I told her to watch it. Now she is just as obsessed as me (as I don't have cable, I d/l all my eps...shhhhhhhh, my sister is lucky enough to have access to cable) My sister thinks her style is a mix of Jenny and Blair...What do you guys think????

  1. wow you and your sister look so alike!

  2. oh my gosh. i love all your sisters outfits! all the blouses and the bows are too cute and they seem like such bargains. those $3 polka dot socks from target are amazing! and i'm also loving the ear muffs.
    i'd say she's more jenny...

    everytime i wear over the knee socks, i get comments like "hay, you look really jap"...
    uhhhh . they are just socks..!?!

    i also d/l GG. hehehe. i'm not lucky enough to have cable either.

    did you watch skins when it was on sbs? the character cassie had the kookiest/cutest outfits.

  3. Hey coco. When we were younger people used to think we were twins! However my sister now would be a little annoyed to hear that we look alike because she has worked really really hard to lose weight...while I have done nothing at all about it. Maybe because I'm married or I'm just too lazy.

    Hey a Dreamer... I love Skins. I've been watching the 2nd series online (it's currently being aired in the UK) Cassie is my favourite...but in the new series she kinda takes a downturn...You have to watch it, its so good.

    The socks thing would get annoying. I've heard that happens if your asian and dress cooky cool. It doesn't happen to me or my sis. How annoying. Its kinda like when I got told I was too "maid style" in Japan, that drove me so crazy, crazy enough to change my style completly!

  4. ahh theres a second season of skins?!! YAY!

    yes, the jap comments happen alot if you are asian and dress a little differently.

  5. you are the best sister ever to give such generous hand me downs! my fave is the mustard leggings one. great work :)

  6. Love the first outfit your sister has on.Those white bobby socks she got from you,where did you get them and what do you wear them with? I love little white socks like that.


Thank you for taking the time to leave me a message but remember to play nice!
