Serena vs. Robin

I don’t usually do posts like this, but as you might be able to tell, I kind of have no life these days and hence am running low on blog ideas. So the other day I was watching Gossip Girl (“How to Succeed in Bassness”) and drooling over Serena van der Woodsen’s (played by Blake Lively) a-ma-zing top:

"Damn straight this shirt is awesome"

"You did NOT just diss the shirt... Dress... Thing."

It’s a Nanette Lepore Darjeeling Dress in Ebony. I think the design is really fun and suits her physique and personality quite well. (Then again, it’s Blake Lively. She can wear a tye-dyed tablecloth and still look hot. As long as you don’t focus on her face.)

So then the other other day I was watching How I Met Your Mother (“Slapsgiving 2: Revenge of the Slap”), and what do you know, Robin Scherbatsky (played by Cobie Smulders) is working the Plum version:

Barney has a great expression here

Screw Call of Duty, I want *that* game for Christmas

I don’t usually notice the fashion behind TV shows, but the bead pattern on the front is so gorgeously distinct. This of course prompted me to squee like a fangirl then sigh wistfully over how well both of these leading ladies strutted their stuff. I must be starting to take a fancy towards all things shiny, bejeweled, sparkly, glittery, sequined, and embellished.

I am a bit divided on this. I like the rich plum colour a lot more, but I wish Robin wore her hair up (just this once, come on!) to show off the flattering neckline cut. Serena did, but that frizz in her lazy ponytail kinda makes it seem like she’s fresh off a toasting session on the electric chair. Penny Poll for your thoughts?

Who better razzles your dazzle?

How I Met Your Mother

God I love this show. I spent the first couple weeks of this term glued to How I Met Your Mother. I don’t know why I never watched it earlier. The characters are so endearing because they go through so much and are naturally flawed. The whole “flashback” scheme just works somehow. The jokes never get old (yes, even the constant Canada-dissing). And Barney Stinson is officially the best sitcom character…like…ever. Actually, I think the show would kind of suck without Barney. Neil Patrick Harris is genius. After watching this show, all other sitcoms just seem kind of blah. If you’ve never seen HIMYM, go watch it nowwwwww!
