L-A: I feel like Fridays require something fun. A day for stuff with little focus. And since our other post today was focused on Halifax fun, I wanted to offer something for the non-Haligonian reader. Which brings me to my favourite blog of the moment:
You’re in love already aren’t you? Frankly, the blogger Kim had me at Chuck Bass. But in case you’re not convinced, here’s a sample of the blog:
She’s good. She really gets Chucks voice in her posts. Maybe the writers of Gossip Girl should be calling her to write Chuck dialogue. (They can also call me to write anything. Anything at all. They can pay me in glances at Blair’s wardrobe and Ed Westwick). She also writes the fab blog What Claudia Wore, which is critiques on the wardrobes of the Babysitter’s Club members in each book and fashion advice that Claudia Kishi would give (if Claudia weren’t a fictional character).
And speaking of His Hottness, Ed Westwick/Chuck Bass, here’s a video of him failing a fashion quiz from Grazia:
(via The Cut)
I’m always a bit disappointed when actors are not more like their characters. I know they’re not actually their characters and the point of acting is to be someone else on screen/stage. I think I just wish Chuck Bass were real. And closer to 30, because it would be less creepy/illegal for me to crush on him. At least Ed Westwick knows that we’re not really watching him for his fashion knowledge: he keeps making love to us by giving smoldering looks at the camera. Unlike Chace Crawford, who doesn’t try to play up sexy and then looks a bit silly when he fails a similar quiz. Seriously Chace? Beige is a dark colour? Why do so many men have trouble with colours? Not to be completely essentialist, but I know too many men who can’t see the difference between different hues and it drives me crazy. I don’t know colours because I’m a woman, I know them because I pay some attention to them.
That had far more focus than I had planned. But I’m down with that. Okay Ally: thoughts on the delicious Chuck Bass? Anything randomly fashionable to share? Oh! before you do, since this weekend/month will be the rainy season for Halifax, I wanted to share some fashionable rainy day tips from Fashion magazine. But perhaps that’s a blog post for another day…. Have a happy weekend and next time I write, it’ll be from sunny Palm Springs, CA. You can be jealous now.
AllyG: I love Chuck Bass. Remember last year during the season finale…”I’m Chuck Bass” . I must have said that over and over for a month. Nate looks like he’d call you too much. You know? Also, did you catch Chuck wearing the ASCOT while playing basketball in last week’s episode? It was spectacular.
In comparison to the cheese on One Tree Hill, Chuck is the definition of smoldering. I mean seriously. Look at this dude Chad Michael something:
Like, shut up.
(L-A: Chad Michael Whatever’s smolder = FAIL. Chuck Bass’ velour jacket and ascot as actual sportswear? Magnifique! A stroke of styling genius. When will Waldorf figure out that she and Chuck are MFEO*??)
