How to be sexy, sweet and ladylike all at the same time?  Take a cue from Gossip Girl‘s Blair Waldorf in her bowtie blouse by Milly. Wear your bow blouse over a pencil skirt, wide leg jeans, trousers, or satin shorts.  Change it up by pairing it with a fitted vest or layering it under a sleeveless dress or tunic.

While Blair’s blouse may be hard to find to locate now, here are three pieces that are available.

Milly Gwenie Bow Blouse is a silky, sexy, sheer look that is perfect for night.

Bird by Juicy Couture is a great wear anytime way to express this style statement.

I love druzy, those sparkly baby crystals, often found inside geodes, that seem to be everywhere right now.   Why?  These pieces reflect light beautifully and can be very striking, especially when colored in an outrageous hue like hot pink or emerald green.  Here are some pieces that I find particularly brilliant:
