Quick Recap: “Damien Darko”

4 Feb

Hello W Magazine.

Blair and Dan slowly become friends until Dan (and yep Dan is the new schemer shockingly Blair doesn’t even sabotage Dan) goes against her to get ahead in the W mag internship. Dan later confesses that Blair is a better intern than him. Ben rejects Serena, she refuses to accept that. Eric and Damien was the WTF moment of the episode.

Best Line:

Dan: I didn’t date Serena van der Woodsen for two years to not come away knowing that those are Marc Jacobs and they’re mustard.

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It’s movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we’d like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you’d like to sell used cars.

Best Outfit:

As seen above, the last scene of Blair Waldorf as she reenters the W mag internship with a smile on her face along with a hint of perfume eau de success.


I’m slowly starting to like Dan HUMPHREY … who would have thought that would ever happen. The Thorpe’s need to pack up and leave the UES and leave Chuck and his company alone. I also wouldn’t mind the Captain being put back in jail along with Damien (please get rid of him and his ridiculous hair).

Extensive fashion recap will come on Monday before the new episode along with Pretty Little Liars.


Quick Recap: “The Kids Are Not All Right”

25 Jan

Gossip Girl’s mid-season return rated a solid “okay” on the excite-o-meter. The show started 2011 lacking flair. Hopefully next week’s episode will make up for this week’s “not that great” episode.

Quick Recap:

Chuck and Serena scheme together. Bass Industries is sold. Ben gets out of jail. Blair and Dan both search for internship. Beginning of a wonderful (or potential failure) friendship between Blair and Dan.

Best Outfit: Serena Van Der Woodsen’s chic belted green plaid trench worn with ash brown over-the-knee boots.

Coat: Burberry Bag: Cleobella Jeans: Rag & Bone Boots: Tania Spinelli

Best Line:

Dan: “You’re an evil dictator of taste”

(of course Dan, we already know how Blair can be when it comes to fashion)


Oh, Blair…..

………. 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.
