Leighton Meester as Blair Waldorf wearing Eryn Brinie
Eryn briniƩ Tweed Coat
Available at: Eryn briniƩ NYC

Spotted, yet another Upper Eastsider making the rounds through the most fashionable of stylists' closets. This isn't just any UE... it's Blair Waldorf from Gossip Girl of course - the maven of all fashionable items on the show, or is she? Every character has their amazing choice pieces/outfits - but Ms. Blair as Dorota would say was wearing just the right coat by Eryn Brinie that everyone is going to backstock for their cold season wardrobe.

The coat is a tweed varital and comes with silk trim on the collar transitioning you for yet another cold winter without being too heavy on the material or price, at $200. Based out of South Korea, the global fashion house of Avista created the Eryn Brinie line and focused on simplicity as everyone can see on the infamously scheming Blair. Alternative pieces in the collection range from dresses to pants and tops. The flagship store opened in America last August in Soho, of course - where else would it open, and has been a celebrity fave ever since. Other store locations include two in Italy, the other capital besides NYC and Paris of fashion.

This designer's true passions of playfulness and always feminine looks stand out in every seasons takes on what's so "now" for women to follow along with. Maybe this is a new designer to surprise your friends with - keep this on the DL, I want to be one of the only ones with Blair's matching coat!
