Blake Lively has been busy filming her new flick Green Lantern in New Orleans, but the budding fashionista still found time to squeeze in some French Quarter shopping. DesignerSocial.com, a new Web site from former publishing executive (and InStyle staffer) Francine Davis Ballard, which buys and sells high-end consignment accessories, just opened a showroom in New Orleans and Lively was one of its first customers! With her pooch Penny in tow, the Gossip Girl star shopped privately, purchasing several Indonesian vintage purses as well as a Chanel handbag. Ballard says, “In my opinion, she has impeccable taste and personal style.” We couldn’t agree more!
