I admit: I watch Gossip Girl for the clothes! In this week's episode, Blair Waldorf's character had on a sophisticated, yet surprising combo: a white lace eyelet dress with black lace stockings and black patent leather Mary Janes. And it worked. The Gossip Girl clothes are trè cher, of course, so I hunted for "cheap chic" alternatives.
Get the Look for Less
$48 Velvet Torch Lace Sheath Dress
$17.75 Emilio Cavallini Tights
$24.65 Cultured Pearl Bracelet
$109.95 GUESS "Mikki" Mary-Jane
The whole look for $200 — several times cheaper than the original outfit.
**UPDATE: Found this at the Macy's sale going right now. Only medium left and won't last, but here's an even cheaper way to an eyelet dress. Already quite a bit different from Blair's, but it's a steal nonetheless:
