After an interesting episode, Gossip Girl seems to be back at its old tricks. As the final season is slowly developing, the authors are desperately trying to revive some elements of the plot which made it famous – Blair as Queen B and her minions, for example. What was new and kind of exotic (a gang of perfectly accessorized schoolgirls and their intrigues) in the first seasons, now sounds kind of wrong and pathetic. I like the fact that many minor characters are making appearances (Nelly Yuki in the second episode), but the plot is still incredibly inconsistent and shallow. The second episode of the sixth season – High Infidelity  – clearly shows all this.
Despite all my considerations, I’m still curious to see what will happen between Lily and Bart. The first scene where my favourite character appears is set in her living room: she’s sitting at a table with her husband, Chuck and Amira, and they’re having brunch. Chuck is desperately trying to find out what happened to his father (and what he was up to) during his disappearance; Lily can’t imagine his intentions, but she feels something is wrong. I love her outfit in this scene: she’s wearing a lovely purple sheath dress and sparkling accessories, her Upper East Side princess style at its best.
She often wears beautiful clip earrings, and these – embellished by grey crystals – are such a classic piece.
Unfortunately I haven’t been able to identify what she wore so far, apart from her cuff bracelet. It’s a piece from the Titania collection by Matthew Campbell Laurenza: Goddess of the Seas (this is the poetic name of this piece) is made of enamel and embellished by a pavé of colourful crystals. The cuff seen on Lily is green and makes a nice contrast with her purple dress.
The second – and last – scene where Lily appears is set again in her living room. Lily has found out Bart had an affair with Amira, but she doesn’t know there’s more behind it. Amira – says Chuck – probably witnessed an important moment in his father’s “second” life, something Bart wants to keep secret.
The necklace is spectacular, a double strand of diamonds with three amazing round-cut front stones. In this scene, she’s sporting a refined set of loungewear – a cashmere cardigan with belt and a silk white nightgown. At this point of the tv show, it’s nice to see some recurring elements. You may remember we saw a similar scene in the 2nd season (the episode was 2×05, The Serena Also Rises), when Bart gave Lily a spectacular emerald and diamond necklace. In that scene, Lily was wearing a purple Nicole Miller dress, the same colour she sported in this episode of the 6th season. I don’t think it’s a coincidence: in the 2nd season, the relation between Lily and Bart was going through a rough patch, while in this case I think troubles are just around the corner.
Any suggestions on the identity of what she wore in this episode are more than welcome! xoxo
 The title of the episode comes from High Fidelity, a 2000 movie by Stephen Frears, starring John Cusak and inspired to a Nick Hornby novel.
