The winning frock is the $249. Anna Sui with first runner up being the $48. Velvet Torch. The Marc Jacobs looks like something Wednesday from the Addams Family would wear while the other frocks are just too much heavy lace.

Danielle said...

Great options! Any guesses on where the tights she was wearing with that dress came from?

The Anna Sui and maybe the ABS.

Miss Halfway said...

My personal favorite is the Allen Schwartz dress, but the Anna Sui one is gorgeous as well.

Yeah, I'd get the Anna Sui. I went crazy for Max Azria black lace overlay dresses last year (I got 2 different ones) so I can't justify more black lace dresses ATM.

Sigh. So many dresses, so little money!

what is the exact dress?
i wish you would put more of the real clothes even though they are way too expensive.

Anon - most of the time the problem with posting the "real clothes" is that the show is filmed months ahead of the airing schedule and the clothes are no longer available, so I can't a) find them b) post about them. Furthermore, as you said, the clothes range from hundreds to thousands of dollars, which is way out of the price range of the average Gossip Girl watcher. So I try to provide alternatives -- I'm just doing the best that I can do.

so, where is it from? wat brand?
:) love the anna sui, but i don't think the front is pretty, it should have been more round around the neck. :)
