Lookbook: Waldorf in White

April 7, 2010

Perhaps it’s the Blair Waldorf enthusiast in me, but I can’t get Leighton Meester’s newest single out of my head. “Your Love’s a Drug” is my new favorite song. It’s infectious, catchy, and the perfect song to dance to. Do listen, I promise you’ll like it!

I chose to put together a Blair-inspired outfit today, based off of a gorgeous outfit she wore in season one.

The Inspiration

My take: Dress, BB Dakota Jack from 344. Scarf (worn as headband), vintage.

How did I do? I love LWDs – they put me in such a fun, summery mood. I like the ruffles up the front. In retrospect, I wish I had sized up to get a better length. Especially while sitting down, the dress was just a tad too short. (Note to all designers: Make longer dresses! Tall girls like myself would greatly appreciate it.) I thought the scarf added the perfect pop of color to the ensemble – I really should wear this as a headband more often!

My history teacher made a funny comment today: “Hannah, do you ever wear the same thing twice?” Of course I do! I wear my staples – a pink cashmere cardigan, black bandage skirt, white tank, and my favorite floral dress – usually at least once a week. I’m glad to know I mix up the rest of my outfits enough to make it look like I’m wearing something new everyday!

    I love this look and think it works great on you! The only thing I think you need to complete it is a black accessory because the stockings add some sort of staple of black. Love it though.

      I wrote back on your blog, but it just occurred to me – do you mean the two pictures together, like in this post, or in my other posts where I have a picture with various items grouped together? If you’re talking about the latter, I use Polyvore.com. It’s like a virtual closet where you can pull apparel and accessories from around the web and put them together all on one page. Super helpful!

    you look gorgeous, as a tall girl myself, i can feel your pain dress shopping can be rather frustrating, do you mind if i ask where you bought it from? thanx

      Isn’t is frustrating? Despite the occasional length issues, dresses are still my favorite pieces to shop for!

      This dress is from 344, a small chain of boutiques in Boston and a few suburbs. (This one specifically came from their Wellesley location.) It’s by BB Dakota, but unfortunately, I don’t seem to be able to find it on their website.
