Look 1 Gossip Girl – Dressing like Julien Calloway

Guess many of you have already seen the pilot episode of the newest Gossip Girl last week. The mean girls of the MET steps are back, but this time with a new clique, quite confusing high school dress code (am pretty sure that their predecessor queen bee Blair Waldorf would have a say on this), and more gender diversity, and fluidity, definitely not on Twitter, and Instagram is the new tabloid.

More privileged and self-entitlement across the hallway, and their latest target – high school teachers.

Which happens to be the new Gossip Girl, headed by schoolteacher Kate, aka. Tavi Gevinson (yeah, the famous fashion blogger 10yrs ago!), with her minions of schoolteachers, ready to take down these spoiled kids. 

That’s what sums it up, and I won’t tell more coz I don’t want to be the spoiler, lol.




Presenting, Julien Calloway the newest Queen Bee of Constance Billard.

I don’t know much about her (nor the person that plays her) but her fashion taste is quite interesting. So, for the sake of this fashion and having fun online, I decided to recreate her first look (and hopefully her next, and the next, etc.). If you’ve noticed on its pilot episode, product placements for luxury brands such as Chanel, Hermes, Balenciaga, Alicia + Olivia, they looove Louis Vuitton and only shop at Net-a-Porter! Even the high street brand Adidas.

And I thought I could recreate these looks without breaking my credit card. 

After all, my favorite op shops in town are always my style savior!

To recreate the Julien Calloway’s school uniform’s look, here are the deeds:
Oversized Van Heusen shirt (I think this is in size 50 for males), which I sourced at Baw Baw Food Relief Op Shop for $4.00

Julien Calloway is a sporty girl, which is why you will notice she wears biker shorts at school. This biker short ($3.00) is also from Baw Baw Food Relief Op Shop, including this pair of nude boots ($3.00).

I want my look to be more sophisticated than her, so instead of carrying a cup of latte, I chose to carry my favorite F. Scott Fitzgerald Classic Works in superb condition, which I got for $4.00 at Vinnies Op Shop, including my red leather handbag for $3.00.

Gladly, my hubby got tons of neckties, and now they are all mine!

    1. I enjoyed the original Gossip Girl, and I still binge for its seasons. This reboot is also entertaining, but still early to say if its as good as the original.

    2. Hahahaha. Definitely not advisable to be the next high school uniform. But classes are online, some high school kid might unwittingly wear this during one of their digital classes.

  7. This outfit is way too sexy for a high school uniform but for a television show it is not at all surprising.

  11. Yeah, I think I've seen articles on the new Gossip Girl. So is this a reboot? I loved the old one. Watched it from beginning til the end. I'm a huge Blaire Waldorf and Chuck Bass fan. I'll check out the pilot episode.

    Hey, nice boots!

    1. I admit that I prefer the original Gossip Girl. The Chuck and Blair love affair is too kilig. Although Chuck is also a problematic one, but nonetheless Blair save him!

    1. I can wear it as a very casual wear, but definitely I wouldn't wear it as a high school student. Maybe I'll get a hall-pass in Uni.
