Reinterpreted shirt-dress and retro styling

How many of you have watched Gossip Girl just as much for the outfits as for the intrigue? I absolutely loved it! All the mean girls with their reinterpreted sexy uniforms, Serena with her more relaxed style and then Jenny who always found a solution…my shirt-dress outfit today reminds me of the series especially for the retro styling.

I remember doing marathons with my friends, staying in all day and watching the series. I liked Serena and Dan, another friend liked Blair and Chuck, we had really mixed opinions. What we did agree upon though is that we needed to go raiding the second hand shops / charity shops for interesting looking clothes, even retro looking sometimes that we could wear as if we were in Gossip girl.

Another more recent series where the fashion is absolutely amazing is Marvelous Mrs Maisel. I might be in a retro mood now, but honestly this is what inspires me the most at the moment: really feminine silhouettes, big earrings and hair accessories. My shirt-dress is not far from that either: looking at it, it makes me think of the kind of dresses Self Portrait used to do a few years ago with the many ruffles, but a bit more office appropriate with the shirt sleeves.

This might have been my favourite outfit of this year, but I am more curious of which is yours. This just gave me an idea…should I do a blog post about this year’s outfits that you liked the most on Instagram based on Impressions?

Retro kisses!
