Is Serena wearing spats?

When I watched this episode of Gossip Girl I thought Serena was wearing ankle boots. It now appears that she was wearing spats? One of my dear friends has been considering buying some spats on etsy and I told her that she would probably never be able to wear them. Apparently, I stand corrected.

Oh! I am familiar with that spat maker-- she is also a corsetiere, and often makes matching corset/spat sets. She seems to have a rather good reputation, unlike another corsetiere selling spats on Etsy...

Which spat maker are you referring to? I was considering buying a pair from bonzie...

The one's on Serena are kind, but hey, if they are coming into fashion, I'm all about getting a pair!

It's a designer who goes by L'Escarpolette/Les Frivolities. She makes incredibly, INCREDIBLY beautiful work. And it seems that through Etsy, she has not had any problems with selling. But she is a corsetiere, and has stiffed many customers of their custom made corsets (that range about at a $400 minimum cost). There is even talk of legal action.
