We're getting a little Gossip Girl crazy around here. The sun is out, we're eating Sour Skittles, and there are only 5 days left until "The Greatest Show of Our Time" returns, (we're obsessed with NY Mag's running commentary and look forward to it almost as much as we look forward to the show itself). Fred Flare's thrilled too. Their "What's New" section boasts a Canvas Jenny Tote and a Blair baby doll dress. The tote's kind of eh but the Blair dress comes complete with a bib, buttons and ruffle - she'd totally wear it with white tights and patent pumps. We searched for a Chuck grandpa cardigan or a brightly colored Serena scarf but no luck yet. We'll be checking back for more inspired titles. (Editor's Note: Please enjoy this shot of Chuck at SubMercer courtesy of photog extraordinare Faran. Britt's to the RIGHT, but she didn't think her beauty could hold up next to Mr. Bass. Check out that ripped jersey and exposed dog tags, ladies!)

Gossip Girl-Inspired Clothing Line to Hit Stores This Fall
Well, this is about five years late: The CW is finally cashing in on Gossip Girl's fashion cred with a clothing line inspired by the show, produced in partnership with LA-based contemporary label Romeo & Juliet Couture, WWD, is reporting. The collection will include embellished tops, bottoms, novelty sweaters, outerwear and draped chiffon dresses with touches of leather, pleats and prints--all of it inspired by one of the characters on the salacious show. So we're guessing there'll be a lot of bows (Blair), plunging necklines (Serena) and "funky" colorful separates (Vanessa). Let's just hope they don't take inspiration form Taylor Momsen's written-off character Jenny, who was a fan of sporting pink tutus from time to time. The line will retail for $80-$200 and will be sold in stores like Kitson, Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue for fall, which is actually kind of high-end for a line inspired by a teens' show (and past it's prime, no less).
