goody two-shoes {louise et cie}

First outfit: Jacket: St. John (similar style here); Sweater: White House Black Market; Pants: St. John (similar style here); Shoes: Louise Et Cie; Sunglasses: YSL; Bag: Chanel; Bracelet: Miansai 
Second outfit: Jacket: Alexander McQueen; Dress: Roksanda Ilincic (borrowed from McMullen Boutique); Bag: Chanel; Sunglasses: YSL; Bracelet: Miansai; Shoes: Louise Et Cie

Full disclosure: If you're like me and live in New York, (or perhaps you do this when you visit New York), your recall of certain places around the city usually revolve around scenes from TV shows or movies. After all, it's hard to avoid. Even Wikipedia attempted at an exhaustive list of all movies filmed and set here in NYC, only to remark that it's very likely an incomplete list.

I've found this makes for a fun bar game -- seeing who can correctly place a certain TV show scene with different spots around the city. For example: The sushi restaurant where Samantha throws a drink in Richard's face? Sushi Samba on 7th! The theater where Joey performs in an Off Broadway show circa season 3? Lucille Lortel on Christopher Street! And of course, you can't pass the Met steps without hearing Blair Waldorf in your head, asking you to sit a few steps below her.

This, naturally, leads to iconic fashion moments as well. Carrie's dress that blows up over her head while in front of the Guggenheim Museum. Serena's opening credits outfit in a cognac leather jacket and striped shirt while standing in Grand Central Station. Oh, and let's not Seinfeld's puffy shirt that he wears on The Today Show (or perhaps we would like to forget it?).    

My point to all of this? I like to think these two outfits pay a slight homage to Blair, a tipping of the proverbial headband, if you will. Because at the end of the day, there's something about wearing something so prim and proper (like these chic little flats and bow pumps by Louise et Cie), that gives you that certain Queen B attitude. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to hop around the Upper East Side today.

  2. Both outfits are absolutely wonderful, but the one with the red coat is major, so classy, feminine and inspiring.

  4. Even if I wouldn't read the write up, I know this pays homage to Blair W! It's the preppy and put-together look, and bold colors that make her always stylishly stand out — and your outfits are just as perfect. Love it!

  8. Even with all the 70's boho on trend right now, I still like prim and proper outfits as well. They never go out of style. I love both these looks.

  14. You use a reference to Serena's opening credits outfit, but you incorrectly describe her as being in a "station"- Chiseled in marble over the entrance to the building it says "Grand Central TERMINAL". On all the official MTA timetables and literature it says "Grand Central TERMINAL". The definition of a Terminal is when the train reaches the end of the line- the train either begins or ends there, no more intermediate stops. (The 4-5-6 subway line stops at "Grand Central Station", however, because you can go uptown or downtown from that stop.)
