Wanna dress like Gossip Girl’s Serena? or like Carrie Bradshaw? Or looking to give your mom one of the crazy outfits the Real Housewives of Orange County wear? Fashionista points out that networks are making it really easy with websites and microsites attached to shows that showcase the character’s wardrobes.
While I love the idea, my last run in with a “dress like the show” website led me to some Amazon.com promotion for Devil Wears Prada, which showcased more like what Anne Hathaway would wear if she shopped at the local Wal Mart (in other words, the clothes were hideous and SO not what the actresses wore in the film). So I curiously checked out some of these sites and surprisingly, liked what I found! Some of my favorite finds below:
1. Gossip Girl “Style“: Serena’s Minnetonka Boots ($138), Calvin Klein Dress, Blair’s Calvin Klein Sable Dress ($148), Serena’s Kimberly Baker Bracelet ($175) and Jenny’s flower ring ($175). For my bf, Chuck’s J Press “skull” bow tie ($49.50).
2. America’s Next Top Model “Style“: Bianca’s BCBG Black Dress ($98), Lisa’s Adidas ‘Supernova’ Skort ($42).
3. Supernatural “Style“: (For the bf) Sam’s Blundstone boots ($139), Dean’s black Gap T ($16.50).
4. Sex and the City “Style“: Carrie’s “houndstooth check mini” “pink and tan snakeskin stiletto boots. She throws on her favorite fur coat, converted to its shorter length.” FAKE FUR AND FAKE SNAKESKIN OF COURSE! vintage Halston beige dress from season 3, light blue topper by Jean Charles de Castelbajac from season 4. Prices not included because they were probably in the millions.
