XOXO, Gossip Girl

The fact that I haven't read the entire Gossip Girl series 100 times over actually surprises a lot of people.  Probably because I act so much like the characters.  But, I was recently inspired to pick up the first novel, Gossip Girl by Cecily Von Ziegesar, and I'm OBSESSED!! The novels are addictive! I read the first two in three days, and now I'm waiting for the third one to come in at the library so I can continue through the series.  My favorite character is Serena van der Woodsen, the "perfect" it-girl who, after being kicked out of boarding school, returns home to find that she is no longer the most popular girl on the Upper East Side.  Her ex-best friend, Blair Waldorf, has taken her place as "most popular" in Serena's absence, but Blair's life is falling apart, and she's having a hard time keeping herself together.  These novels tell the stories of the privileged youth living in Manhattan who can drink, smoke, party, and spend as much as they want, as long as they don't ruin their parents' image in the social circle of NYC.  Since I enjoyed the books so much, I figured I would watch the TV show!  To my surprise, I hated the show at first!  It was totally different than the novels; there were different characters, alternate plots, and it just wasn't as fun as reading the books. I continued to watch it, however, and now I'm as much of a fan of the show as I am of the books!  But one thing is for sure: the fashion is fabulous! Blake Lively plays Serena and Leighton Meester plays Blair.  The two are perfect for their roles, and their clothes are so cute.  Here are some of my favorite outfits from the show:
