As the latest season of Gossip Girl continues with filming, I am looking forward to seeing more and more of Blair Waldorf‘s stylishly prim ensembles before they hit the small screen. THe latest look (seen above) was comprised of a nude Moschino ruffle pearl tweed jacket, an Alberta Ferretti embellished neck-tie chiffon dress, Roger Vivier platform court heels, and the all-important Marc Jacobs quilted handbag.
My favourite look of the week, however, comes from Leighton Meester when she attended the “HTC Serves Up NYC” product launch event at the Highline Stages in New York City.
Not only did Leighton wear the very first red carpet appearance of Marios Schwab‘s Resort 2012 collection (the long-sleeved black dress with the aquatic graphic-print skirt), but she also wore the Burberry Prorsum Resort 2012 tribal heels that showed up on the runway at London Fashion Week just this past Monday! Oh, closet lust, you are my inevitable downfall.
If you have yet to hear of Macy’s “Impulse” department, you will soon find it’s hype inescapable. Why? Karl Lagerfeld has designed a capsule collection for them (no really, I’m serious)!
With a campaign full of Coco Rocha goodness – shot in Lagerfeld’s library in Paris – the 45 piece collection (priced between $50 and $170) is sure to fly off the racks. Karl said:
“To me Macy’s is the perfect department store in the US where everybody can find what they’re looking for without ruining their budget.”
With that said, when it comes to designer collaborations, we can’t all afford to buy one of everything, can we? For that reason, I have curated a list of the ten best pieces from the collections – the ones that scream “Chanel”.
1. Dress, $124
2. Blush dress, $99
3. Ruffled dress, $119
4. Collared dress, $139
5. Brown jacket, $119
6. Scarf, $49
7. Leather short, $79
8. Tweed dress, $129
9. Belted tweed jacket, $169
10. White blouse, $99
The collection goes on sale at 235 Macy’s across America and on macys.com on August 31.
