This is definitely not couture! Blake Lively took to Instagram on Tuesday, Oct. 20, to reveal one of her deepest, darkest secrets: Her beloved childhood sweatshirt was quite the (adorable) fashion fail.

Go ahead, take this bad boy in:

Yep, that's the Gossip Girl alum and her big brother, Eric Lively — at least, those are their faces! — plated on the "cover" of a fictional mag called Sports Time.

Even better? Lively's caption, complete with a shout-out to Vogue's Editor in Chief. "Dear Anna Wintour, My awesome taste in fashion started young. Oh yeah. I wore this sweatshirt. Often. Please don't tell a soul," the three-time Vogue cover star wrote, then signed the note, "Xoxox Gossip Squirrel." (All of our Upper East Side-feels!)

The post comes just one week after Lively, who shares 10-month-old daughter James with husband Ryan Reynolds, officially shuttered her lifestyle venture, Preserve.
