"Get Mulberry's Iconic bags from the high-street shop boohoo!"- Giles

YES! We can't help screaming it, as mulberry is being shoved off the spotlight for a more affordable post- Boohoo.com. "We discovered the OMG collection of bags on boohoo when we were browsing, and I just bought one, for a present." Giles Enthused "AND it's got a promo code on atm too, so what ARE YOU DOING saving up, when you can fake it, nicely, of course."
And what had us MOST excited was Blake Lively carrying off a mock croc satch that was almost the same as the high-street versions.
Giles seemed quite the cat with the cream, with a range of textures, colours and styles that all have us in de ja vu. Affordable glam? Yes, yes, YES!


All boohoo.com, start price from £15.75



New Page: Dolly Mixture: DIY Love: Earrings

Arm yourself with a handful of tassels, brooches and feathers...

Hooks: You can find them online or if you prefer, go to your local DIY shop and ask about earring hooks (and where to find them). Jewelry DIY have a range of different packs in golds, bronzes and misty silvers. Mix and match on beads, tassels and feathers of your choice. Another idea is Ribbon. string it through the eyelet and ties in bows, knots and all sorts. You can tie more than one ribbon per earring too.

Hoops: Hoop's have to be the best for diversity. you can practically string anything onto them, including small bracelets! Again Jewelry DIY have a great selection of different sizes and shapes. Pearls, rhinestone, Porcelain and glass, you name it and you can hoop it..:)

Goddess in Disguise: Leighton Meester

We see her here, playing the part of a smoking seductress, even when she's off duty. A dropped neckline jumpsuit in a crushed velvet and lace, the capsule bag hangs gracefully from her clasped hand. We want it. We want her style. She keeps us on our toes out and in of the Gossip Girl series. She’s on a hit show, got to make out with Entourage hottie Adrien Grenier and was recently voted New York’s most stylish woman.
"I was actually just talking about that, saying something about Milan and flipping through magazines,"  at an event she co-hosted at the Kira Plastinina store in NYC’s SoHo. "I’ve gotten to wear such beautiful clothes and had such a variety and it’s just been so nice because I feel like I’ve grown so much with my style and everything because I’ve been able to have fun with it. It’s really fun for me.
So how does Leighton cope with her fame?
"It’s changed everything for the better," she said. "It’s different, but I’m happy. This is the best life that I could ask for, and it’s more than I thought it could be. I remember looking through magazines or watching movies even just a couple of years ago and being like, ‘I really want to be part of that,’ but not realizing what that was. I didn’t understand it and now this is my life and it’s so funny! I couldn’t be happier."

Leighton’s character on Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf, is a modern day Holly GoLightly who is obsessed with New York fashion and Breakfast at Tiffany’s. In real life, she shares the same fascination with old Hollywood.

"I really love old movies and I love movies with Bette Davis and her kind of style and look," she says. "I love that time period. Because of the show, I’ve fallen in love with Audrey Hepburn. Blair wants to live the fantasy life of Breakfast at Tiffany’s or My Fair Lady, so I’ve gotten to see a lot of the fashion."

Leighton continues, "I think the most wonderful thing about her [Hepburn] is that she set a lot of trends and they were all about being modern yet having your own kind of look because you can be stylish and trendy all you want, but at the end of the day it’s about what you feel amazing in."

When it comes to today’s fashion, Leighton says she admires actresses like CateBlanchett, "She’s so classic but willing to take risks too. Her personal style is so beautiful and natural and down-to-earth and she can still wear really incredible dresses and not be taken over by it."

Her own personal style she keeps tucked away inside two brand new closets she had re-done in her Manhattan apartment.

"When I first moved to New York to do the show I had a little half of an entry way closet. I had clothes hanging on my fireplace, on my lamp, it was crazy.", "When I moved into my new place, that is the one thing that I love and I had to wait two months for it but it’s the biggest closet I’ve ever had. I have another closet in the hallway too. Ahh, it’s so amazing!"
