Guilty Pleasures

Ok, so I have to take a moment to talk about the most recent episode of Gossip Girl. It is one of my guilty pleasures. After the end of The OC, I had to find something to fill the void. Since they are both created and written by the same people, here I am. A Gossip Girl addict. Last weeks episode featured the wedding we’ve all been waiting for… Blair and Louis. No, I am not rooting for Louis. I just really like weddings. I am really hoping that Blair gets over her pact with the big guy upstairs and gets back together with Chuck. I loved the scheming drama produced by Blair + Chuck. And wouldn’t her union with Louis mean that she’d have to move to Monaco to be a proper part of the royal family? So sorry Louis, even though I thought you were a nice guy (until the end of the episode that is!), I was still rooting for the bad guy. And really, Dan? He just does not fit into this love triangle, or square, whatever you want to call it. And who else can sense that Georgina is not the real Gossip Girl and most likely just a hacker? I mean, come on. They can’t reveal that until the very last season or possibly even last episode. Where would the show go from there? Also, what the heck was up with that weird intro? Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn? I just didn’t really get it.

With my little rant out of the way, I want to talk about the actual wedding stuff involved. I will say that I wish we could have seen more details of the wedding, but I know this is not a TV show about weddings, so I will let that slide. So let’s focus on the attire. As we know from another episode, Vera Wang was the designer of the gowns for Blair and all her bridesmaids. And she did not disappoint. I love Vera and her style.

So let’s talk about the bridesmaids dresses first…

I completely love the idea of having different dresses for the maid of honor and the bridesmaids. I think the design fit Serena (Blake Lively) perfectly. Though I honestly don’t know of a single dress that wouldn’t look good on her. The short dresses are incredibly adorable and I am pretty sure I want this just to wear out on the town one night. Both are super flirty and cute. Just an all around ball of fun.

It was super sweet how she had Cyrus help walk her down the aisle. But I digress… I love the romantic feel of the lace on this dress. I think they really hit the nail on the head with this one. Everything, from the hair to the veil to the dress, just meshed so well. I kind of expected to see Blair in something a little more edgy, but this was really perfect and appropriate for the wedding. I will say that I was actually a bigger fan of the dress we spied her trying on when Vera actually made her appearance on the show. What do you think?

I guess I just feel this one is a little more like the recent Vera that I have been seeing all over the place. I love the layered “fluff.” It is just so whimsical and pretty, like a princess should be.

Well enough of pushing my guilty pleasure on you. If you are a Gossip Girl fan yourself, then you will appreciate this. If not, at least you got to see a few pretty dresses!! But now you know where I will be tonight… watching the next episode :)
