I am feeling so Blair Waldorf in this Vivienne Hu luxe coat dress and leather handbag. For those of you who watched Gossip Girl (better be everyone!), you all know that Blair’s style is very feminine, classic, and put together. This dress coat totally reminded me of Blair, from the fur collar to the intricate design to the flared shape. Paired with a navy leather handbag, this is a classic Blair Waldorf outfit. If you haven’t heard of Vivenne Hu, she is a New York based designer whose show I had the pleasure of attending a few seasons ago during NYFW. Her designs are feminine and chic, with touches of European and Asian inspiration. So when the brand reached out to me to work together, I of course said yes!

In true Blair Waldorf fashion, I chose layered pearl necklaces and a pearl bracelet for my jewelry pieces. I also went with a velvet cocktail dress with a pleated lining so that it can peak out subtly from under the coat. The feminine details are what make Blair Waldorf’s style so special. For my shoes, I decided to match the dress and go with my favorite pink velvet booties. Since my style is very colorful, I wanted to add a pop of color to this look.

Asides from gorgeous clothing, Vivienne Hu also recently came out with a new accessories line including luxury handbags and shoes. I’m loving this navy leather handbag that is the perfect size and so classic, this is the kind of handbag that will never go out of style. The subtle details make this bag special, such as the V shaped clasp and the top handle. The leather is also so soft, and feels just as luxe as it looks.

To transition this look into Winter, I would add a pink pearl beanie. This one I’m wearing is from Betsey Johnson and I’m pretty obsessed with the pearl detail and white pom. It is also super warm, I actually just wore it today on a windy day and it definitely kept my ears cozy!
