With this nice weather finally streaming in, the sandal phenomenon has grown to new heights, literally. These crisscross sandals by Loeffler Randall are particularly interesting, and have been seen worn by both Leighton Meester on the set of Gossip Girl and Emma Watson. However, what I absolutely love about these sandals is that they are in pure form of versatility. Leighton sports a more preppy look than Emma who is on the complete opposite side of the spectrum with her rocker-esque ensemble. I truly love both looks, especially how well these “Paige” sandals are being worn. Though the price is beyond my budget, that doesn’t mean I shouldn’t indulge in the steal below.

Nine & Co. “Moonlite” Wedge Sandals

Although these “Moonlight” Sandals by Nine & Co. are in wedge form, they preserve the most significant aspect of the sandals above. That is of course the crisscross detailing, which is practically identical to the real deal. Plus, these are only $40 so one doesn’t feel guilty about splurging on a pair of out-of-budget designer shoes. Ultimately, you can still keep the versatile feature in addition to the comfortable wedge heel without spending too much.

A few days ago Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively helped making cupcakes for a good cause at Sprinkles in NYC. The blonde beauty looked stylish and festive in a cream sheer button-down blouse which she paired with a stunning gold Gucci leather skirt from the Resort 2012 collection. I’m not sure where she was headed with the dark green Brian Atwood Maniac pumps, but since I’m really loving Blake’s upper ensemble I’m willing to overlook her shoe choice faux-pas. Check out our budget-friendly take on Blake’s look below and let us know what you think!

In one of the Gossip Girl episodes called “The Grandfather”, Blair Waldorf (Leighton Meester) wore an unusually sexy, figure-hugging Hervé Léger bandage mini dress with white criss cross inlays. However, Blair’s risqué dress was tamed with a cute beige embellished Joie cardigan and a cute nautical Tomassini necklace.

Covet the body-con dress, but don’t have a $2k budget? You’re in luck because this strapless taffeta dress by Jessica McClintock is a great budget-friendly Hervé Léger alternative.

Most of us embrace the whole nude trend this year, but WHOA! Leighton Meester seems to be especially smitten with it. The actress was papped a few days ago arriving at the Gossip Girl set in a nude Céline shirt dress with matching nude ankle boots. To set off her neutral outfit Leighton added red Balenciaga shades and a cute vintage-y box bag, also by Céline. Casual, trendy and chic. I am starting to warm up to Leighton’s off-duty style.

I stopped watching Gossip Girl after the first season. The storyline just got so bad I couldn’t stand it any longer. However, I’d still say you can consider me a fan. If I weren’t watching because of the show itself, I’d still tune in just so I can watch all the beautiful outfits and the uptown scenery of New York City. Last week, Leighton Meester & Blake Lively were papped filming a scene where Leighton wore a beautiful yellow & orange printed two-tone dress by Nanette Lepore. I adore Leighton’s look from head-to-toe. It’s so quintessentially Blair, isn’t it?
