Le Blog de Sushi: Upper East side

{ Upper East side }


Look what came in the mail, right on time for the gorgeous weather Melbourne's been having these past few days. It's been so unusually nice that I've spent the past two days having picnic lunches in the park. So, on to the contents of the package! I received this dress from Button N Thread Boutique, all beautifully wrapped (thank you BNT).

I was worried it would be too clingy at first, but the material is a nice thick cotton so it's very comfortable. I love the white ruffles at the hem and the cotton eyelet detailing on the shoulders. And of course, what dress would be complete without a bow somewhere?

The 'Barbie' dress is modelled off of one seen on Serena in Gossip Girl. Does anyone know which series/episode this photo above is from? I've watched up to episode twenty of season two and don't remember seeing it yet. I think the navy version is very reminiscent of the dress from the karen Walker S/S 2010 collection and, next time I wear it, I'm going to try some layering and a sun hat.

I love how she layer little striped bike shorts/legging under that collection.

I don't think its from gossip girl but just a paparazzi shot. Serena doesn't have a dog but that looks like Blake Lively's pet dog.

Sad to say, but I've stopped following Gossip Girl. It sucks because I used to LOVE seeing what Serena and Blair would wear. That dress is adorbs, and it looks great on you!

Lovely. I'm particularly charmed by the shoes. What a clever riff on nautical blues. I think the shot of Blake Lively is off the street...That dress just doesn't seem like Serena's onscreen rocker-luxe style ( not that I religiously watch the show or anything...!). Also, the dog is somewhat mystifying. Maybe he's her real life pet?

I think it looks super cute on you - and I love how you paired it with those shoes. And I hadn't thought about it but you're right, it looks very similar to the KW one x
