How to Succeed in Bassness, the seventh episode of Gossip Girl‘s third season, was surprisingly a miss. I really hope the producers of the show have something big in store for the audience, because the plotting and the mysteries we’ve enjoyed so far are nowhere to be found in the latest episodes. Blair herself, the Queen of blackmail and intrigue, is muted, as if she were unable to remember who she is (but I guess this is part of the personal crisis she’s going through). Another reason why I was so disappointed after watching the episode is that Lily is hardly to be seen, and she only has two outfit changings, bummer! On the other hand, I like that the episode is set at Halloween: it’s so funny watching Rufus – a Halloween enthusiast – decorating pumpkins as the Kiss and see him dressed  as Johnny Ramone.
Lily’s first scene is set in Jenny’s bedroom, where she’s trying to convince her to clean her closet up, getting rid of the dresses she doesn’t wear. In this case, Lily is wearing a tweed pencil skirt and a Tory Burch Alva ruffled top in Bark Brown.
She also wears black pumps and a pearl necklace. This outfit is very conservative, perfectly matching Lily’s style. I love the shot where Lily’s image is reflected in the mirror: it looks like she’s Jenny’s nemesis, or an older version of the platinum blonde wild girl.
In the rest of the episode, Lily sports a lovely DKNY suit, with a camel short-sleeved cropped jacket and a matching pencil skirt.
This is the only full figure shot I could get, where her shoes and her hairstyle are visible. She’s wearing a pair of Christian Louboutin Rolando pumps in Roccia python . Her hairstyle is typically an updo; this time, she adds a satin bow to accent her bun.
Jewellery is a must for Lily, so some pieces cannot be missing in her outfit. She wore a nice chain bracelet (some rings of the chain are enameled) and lovely button earrings with central coral beads. I really love this outfit and the jacket in particular, because it’s tailored and simple. I also love her red polished nails.
I repeat: the episode let me down, but some candids of Kelly Rutherford from the set emerged and they made my day. The first detail that caught my eye are the flared jeans, because I love this cut. I’m not as tall as Kelly, but I like wearing flared jeans  because they’re super-comfortable and have a bohemian vibe. She wore them with a beige cashmere sweater, black ballerina flats and a gorgeous necklace.
When I saw the necklace, I was genuinely happy because I thought I had identified at least one piece seen on Rutherford. I was 100% sure it was a Suzanna Dai necklace, because those circular elements really screamed “Dai” to me. I dropped a line to Dai’s pr office, just to have more details about the necklace…and they told me the necklace is not a Suzanna Dai piece. Bummer again! She also wore a pair of drop topaz and gold earrings.
I have always liked high-heeled shoes (I own some of them, but I never put them on), but what I wear on a daily basis are flats. Well, my favourite flats of the moment are Melissa plastic shoes , because they’re very comfortable, but my on-the-go shoes have always been Converse All Star hi-tops since I was 15. In any case, I think flats are amazing if paired to flared jeans, because they emphasize their relaxed vibe. For this reason, I cannot but applaud Kelly’s choice to wear the most classic flats ever, the BB flats by Repetto. This style was originally created for Brigitte Bardot (hence its name), who wore them in Et Dieu Créa la Femme (1956) by Roger Vadim. The shape and details (the tiny front bow, the gros grain trim) make them a classic to wear all the time. Kelly is so beautiful here, and the BB flats add a touch of Parisian glamour to her beauty.
Did you enjoy Gossip Girl‘s last episode? And what about your shoes? Are they flats or high heels?
 This is not is the first she is spotted wearing Louboutin shoes in exotic leather. She wore a pair of Miss Boxe wedges in Roccia python in Rufus Getting Married.
 I don’t wear skinny jeans, because I don’t like wearing something that emphasizes my body. I prefer flowy and comfortable items.
 I own three of them – Night flats in green, Isabela Capeto Aranha Flocked sandals in navy blue and Vivienne Westwood three-strap Mary Janes in plum – but I’d like to buy Vivienne Westwood toe shoe Mary Janes, too: they are so cute!
