So it is possible to be find true love on the upper east side – you just have to be poor like Dorota and Vanya, or old like Eleanor and Cyrus. Both happily married couples are so sweet. I loved this episode. Like Blair, I’m a sucker for weddings.
The little moment between Dorota and Blair was really touching. It occurred to me that Blair’s best friend is not Serena – it is Dorota. She has always known of Blair’s lies and schemes, yet has always been there for her. And like Blair, Dorota loves headbands (Siman Tu is my latest jewelry obsession)! She looked absolutely radiant in her Eleanor Waldorf wedding gown. And speaking of Eleanor, she has some of the best one-liners ever: “Eavesdropping on the help is undignified.”
I loved the silliness of the whole scenario. Traditional Eastern European wedding games dating all the way back to 14th century? What? They had balloons back then? I’m Eastern European and I’ve never heard of this! Must research…. And how cute was the BEP’s “I Gotta Feeling” accordion tune?

Serena was super boring and self-involved. I mean she must have known Dorota for at least a decade now and ditches her wedding to pursue her own interests. She did look great at both the pre-wedding party in the black Ferragamo dress and at the wedding in that gorgeous draped deep-v grey dress (still looking for it). At least Carter Baizen (aka Almost-Chuck) is back! You know I have a soft spot for him. I don’t know why. Maybe it’s the name: Carter Baizen! Carter can stay because Serena and Nate are already getting boring.
Little J is one heartbreak away from becoming Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction. And dumbo Nate is so easy to manipulate! He deserves her. But she wore f-ing PREEN! And grew Serena-like boobs overnight to fill it in! Of course, she managed to make Preen look cheap by pairing the dress with the now ubiquitous Jenny lace tights. But again: Siman Tu jewelry!

And yes, Blair and Chuck are so over. Even Nate can’t believe how stupid Chuck’s Indecent Proposal plan was. Yes, that’s how stupid you are Chuck! Oh well, at least she got some Cartier out if in the end.
But let’s talk about Marchesa! I’ve always been a huge fan, even though those Grecian gowns can get a little redundant. Blair had worn Marchesa before in the beginning of the season. Remember? Red with big ruffles and from the same outstanding Fall 2009 collection as this one. This gold/bronze colour on her is just flawless and it has a bow. BOW!

Next episode: Serena finally meets daddy! And they go for tea. Also Lily Rhodes Van der Woodsen Bass Humphrey is back. That means the return of Hermès! Thank God, I’m feeling Hermès deprived.
You know you love me!
