Yeah, I feel old. I remember watching the adverts in the run up to the first season, and making sure I was ready for when the first episode hit. I hooked from the very beginning. The drama, relationships, the love triangles -everything bout this show had me wishing for that ultra-chic life of coolest teenagers on the Upper East Side.
Based on Cecily Von Ziegesar's best selling YA series of the same name, The show was an instant hit across the world. I'm serious. This show was all we talked about on myspace. (see I swear I'm getting old!)
Gossip Girl did a lot for our generation. I believe it had a big impact on social media, I mean, come on, bloggers have a lot to thank GG for. It put Blake Lively on the map for being a total style icon and the actress to watch. It brought us some incredible one liners -I'm Chuck Bass- and of course it brought us Dorota.
But if I'm going to be honest, the main reason we tuned into GG week after week, was the incredible fashion. Rocking the seasons It-bag and beautiful designer pieces put our school uniforms to shame. Blair and Serena taught me a lot of things about dressing up, and brought me a ton of inspiration along the way.
So, naturally, we need to take a little trip down NYC's memory lane. Expect envy and lust to take over you...
