i checked out the new anna sui for target line today before getting much needed manis and pedis with a friend. apparently, anna was inspired by gossip girl for this collection (below are some of my favorites), which whadaya know premieres tomorrow (superpsyched, by the way)! i came away with the giant navy and black houndstooth dress. my friend had more success with two dresses and two tops. i think most of the collection suited her coloring much better than mine. there seemed to be lots of orangey and mustardy tones that don’t like me too much but go beautifully with her light skin and burgundy hair.
so, what do you think will be this year’s blair waldorf headband? i was so in love with the big red bow headband blair had in season 1 that i ended up fashioning my own. thank god i found a red ribbon that matched a red satin headband i just bought at claire’s. i love that headband, but ever since i wore it as part of my blair costume last halloween i feel self-conscious wearing it. like now i’ve stuck it in a costume jail and apparently i can’t find the right bail amount to set it free.
speaking of halloween, the columbia tower is hosting the 3rd annual masquerade charity ball to support the muscular dystrophy association. it’s being held on october 24th starting at 8pm and tickets are only $45. i’d really like to go and i’ve already got a royal blue venetian mask that my parents brought me from the venetian (i know, not quite). i’ve never been to a masquerade and i have a secret fantasy that if i attended this masquerade, it’ll be like i got dropped right in the middle of the masquerade ball scene in phantom of the opera. *paper faces on parade*
