Margaret Mead's Fashion

Anthropologie's dress sale is, as always, so close yet so far away...the number of gorgeous dresses available is quite astounding, but alas, the number of gorgeous dresses available in size 0 is astoundingly minute. But I was able to find three picks for our gorgeous Gossip Girls, in celebration of their new season. I'll be honest though, the plot is sort of a side bonus for the gorgeous outfits. And while she's not part of the dynamic B + S duo that tends to take most of the screen attention, I'm beginning to become fond of little Jenny Humphrey and her own storylines.

This ruffly shirtdress would be perfect for Blake Lively, aka Serena van der Woodsen, as she often favours preppy, clean-cut styles with a little bit of a relaxed vibe to them. She'd probably pair it with some simple sandals and beachy waves.

This cute little Peter Pan collared dress would be perfect for Jenny Humphrey...though I'm not so sure about Taylor Momsen, as she's always morphing her styles these days. Not that that's a bad thing -- it's always great to see younger kids experimenting with style. The simple, short-sleeved, prim structure of this dress echoes the dress that Jenny wore to the Vitamin Water party (can anyone say blatant advertising? at least it wasn't alcohol...).

This gorgeous yellow jacquard ruffle-neck dress belongs on the one and only Queen B. Or, should I say, Leighton Meester. Leighton's been experimenting with her style lately, and has emerged with a much more couture-minded style than Blake, who's rocking a very vintage/boho vibe of her own. Leighton's gorgeous skintone would definitely do this dress justice, and the trendy yellow colour paired with an intricate print would love absolutely lovely on her.
