Oh, Blair…..

24 Jan

………. We love you and your headbands

“Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl’s Upper East Side teenage fashionista, has turned one style quirk into a trend: her ever-present headband. What makes them so wearable? The key is to place them at least an inch back from the hairline. “If you have bangs, sweep them in front to soften the look,” says the show’s hairstylist, Elizabeth Reilly-Davila. ”

Dear Blair Waldorf,

Now that Gossip Girl will be back on tonight (it’s been ages since there has been a new episode of Gossip Girl?!), I couldn’t help but fall head over heels over your abundant amount of headbands. As I was having a mini marathon I came across many Susan Daniels and Jennifer Behr headbands that I used to love.

Whether you are wearing your usual preppy and girly-girl headbands, or a blend of a 1920s flapper vibe with a dash of boho-chic. I can picture whisking my hair back on its iffiest of days, slipping into a headband similar to yours, and instantly being transformed from semi-unpresentable to effortlessly glamorous.

But alas, I suspect the headbands you wear and I are star-crossed lovers, a la you and Chuck Bass. If my internet stalking results are to be trusted, I believe you either wear Jennifer Behr or Susan Daniel Headbands, which though surely is an ideal match for someone out there, it is too pricey for a girl known to love a trendy hairpiece one day only to question whether it is stupid-looking the very next.

Thus, I will be distracting myself with one of the below less-investmenty headbands, which while certainly not a substitute, are pretty enough to keep me entertained for a while. In the meantime, I hope you have fun making out with Dan Humphrey (or whomever your next conquest may be) …. but that you go back to Chuck soon, because we kind of have a thing going for him.
