So, Serena Van Der Woodsen, thank you for making me realize that proportions can be mixed; that gray, beige, peach, and brown go together; that sequins and lace can be worn in the daytime...and even at the same time; and most importantly, that just because you're visiting Brooklyn, doesn't mean you have to dress like you're not on the Upper East Side!
