Gossip is Cheap

Gossip Girl’s resident queen bee Blair Waldorf always manages to look impeccable, from her peacock-feathered headband right down to the brightly colored opaque tights.

Sure, Blair might be a fictional character, but her outfits continue to inspire burgeoning young fashionistas across the country. One of the best aspects of the show is the wardrobe; each female character has their own unique style that embodies their personalities.

It’s no surprise, then, that designer Anna Sui has created a collection of clothes inspired by each of the four main females on the show. You won’t have to break the bank too much to dress like your favorite character; Sui’s collection features all modestly priced items available for sale exclusively at Target wfrom Sept. 13 to Oct. 17. But make sure you act fast, because many of the looks are already sold out online and once they’re out of stock in stores, Target will not be restocking them.

Out of the entire collection, the clothes inspired by Blair are definitely the best and most true to character. There are four dresses inspired by Blair that all look more higher end and expensive than they really are.

One of the prettiest Blair outfits is a metallic jacquard dress, selling for $59.99. The knee-length scoop neck dress has a circular pattern in deep purple and deep blue, with a gold pattern sewn on top.

Anna Sui also created a cream colored sheer shirt with gold flowers and a high collar that covers the neck, selling for $39.99.

The gold flowers sewn into the shirt give it a very expensive feel. If you pair this shirt with one of Blair’s signature headbands, you’ll get an extra touch of glamour.

For Jenny, the show’s resident punk-rocker, Sui has also created a variety of looks, although they seem a little less true to character than the others. For $69.99, you can get a black lace V-neck halter dress.

There’s also a cute red plaid skirt with zippers on the side, selling for $29.99.

Vanessa has a very funky personality, and Anna Sui definitely reflected that in her clothes. The clothes all use the same color pattern-deep purple, orange and cream, making it easy to mix and match pieces. One of the most fun pieces is a puffy vest, selling for $44.99. There’s also a purple T-shirt with different colored gems along the neckline, selling for $29.99.

Serena’s character is very laid back, but still always looks chic. One of her best pieces is a satin, striped shirt dress, selling for $59.99. Pair this with the leather jacket, selling for $149.99, the most expensive piece in the collection, for a really fun look.

Overall, there are more than 20 tops and 15 dresses to choose from in Anna Sui’s collection now available at Target. Even if you haven’t seen Gossip Girl, there’s something for everyone. The pieces are very versatile and you can dress them up or down depending on what type of accessories you pair with them. While some of the pieces are a little pricey, they are good quality.

If you are fan of the CW show, these pieces are an investment that is worth the price.
