Friday's Fancies: Red Haute

Happy Friday's Fancies, everyone! This week's theme is all about the rockin' color red. My red ensemble was inspired by the princess of the Upper East Side, Blair Waldorf.

Miss Waldorf's ivory skin and brunette hair looks gorgeous in some red, so I thought this ensemble would be perfect for the girly and sophisticated {fictional} New York royalty.

1. The dress is by Valentino - because, girl, I cannot do a fabulous and luxurious red outfit without featuring the king of red himself. Girly ruffles are perfect for Blair, and I could definitely see her sporting something similar on the show. It's prim and covered up with just enough decolletage showing for some sexiness {for Chuck of course!}.
2. The headband is also Valentino. What Blair outfit would be complete without a headband?? The bow keeps it presh while the studs add some edge - just like Blair's personality.
3. Mary Janes are by Gucci. They continue the sweet meets sassy vibe that reminds me oh so much of Ms. Waldorf.
4. And last, but certainly not least, we have a jaw-dropping necklace by Erickson Beamon. GG fans will know that this is the same brand of necklace that Chuck gave Blair for her birthday in season one. If you couldn't tell, I'm a fan of the couple {I get too invested in TV} and wanted to pay homage to them with these killer jewels.
