Jenny Packham dresses in Gossip Girl

Jenny Packham is a British fashion designer known primarily for her bridal gowns and ready-to-wear collections.

Leighton Meester wore a short style Jenny Packham Spring 2011 dress as her character Blair in Gossip Girl in an episode titled "The Princesses and the Frog" during Season 4.

The Saga of Jenny Packham continued when Blair pulled off another dress in season 5, episode 3 titled "The Jewel of Denial". And oh my, did she look stunning !

In the very same episode 2 days ago, Kaylee DeFer who was the new girl on the Gossip Girl block last season, returned to season 5 starring as Charlie Rhodes, faux cousin of Serena Van Der Woodsen.

Blake Lively played as Serena Van der Woodsen, wore a coral silk chiffon gown by Jenny Packham. The actress selected the gown herself from the designer’s spring/summer 2011 collection.

But Miss Packham is not always armed with the triple-S: sparkly, sequin and sophisticated.
Do you remember this dress on Blake?

How about the blue dress on Blaire?

So how about it? 
Do you like Jenny's dresses?
After all, who are we to judge when a royalty wore a dress by this fabulous designer. ;)

A harvest of great choices

It has been exactly 13 days since we entered the new weather season, and autumn is already giving us the chills.
It was the perfect time for buying a few things, nothing special; just a few pieces to welcome this chilly weather and the cold breeze.
A new pair of jeans, a little bit bleached in the front; a grey woolen blouse - with 3/4 sleeves, so comfortable and feeling cozy on the skin; and a short coat crying to see some rain! The color is kinda creamy and the material is velvet on the outside.

The final touch - I handmade this necklace, with a pair of simple but cute earrings from the same material.
That poor old fashioned tie from my dad... now' it's a whole new piece!

I gotta admit - shopping is not my cardio as Carrie B. would say, but I find certain pleasure in it.
It's a woman's thing for sure.

Autumn - I embrace you . . . 

It's the perfect time for a cute gift for your boyfriend.
For no reason. Just Love in autumn.
How do you like mine?
And let me tell you - he loved it.
