I Will Never Be Blair Waldorf.

Thursday, August 20, 2009

I love Gossip Girl. Who doesn't right? While I consider myself much more of a "Serena," I find myself inexplicably drawn to Blair's Upper East Side kind of style. Completely posh? Absolutely. Completely impracticable? Absolutely.

 My favorite thing that she wears? All of those gorgeous bow/ feather headbands, of course. I am just over the top in love with them. In love with them on her. Me? Not so much. Could you just imagine me walking around town in my gym clothes or my flats wearing what, a bird on my head? Yeah, I don't think so. 

However, this fact doesn't stop me from trying on every single Jennifer Ouellette headband when I pass by Barneys and asking the little man if mommy looks stupid. His furrowed brows always let me know that while I may be the yummy mummy, I am not and never will be a Blair Waldorf. I guess I'll just have to wait until next season to live out my headband lust through a girl that can somehow pull off an ostrich on her head. Until then, here are a few of my favorites. 

Maybe in my next life I'll be able to pull one of these beauties off. Hmmmm somehow I doubt it.

I have to admit... I aspire to be more Serena... But am, inevitably, a Blair.

I am in the process of making one of these head bands myself. They are actually quite easy to make.

I love Blair's style! But like you, I don't fool myself that I could carry off any aspect of it...actually we could possibly do the bags and shoes? Cannot wait for season 3!!! xx

I havent seen the Gossip Girl, nevertheless loved this post. I think we all can identify to having character style hero worship. But in real life it doesn't always translate the same.
Walking down muddy country lanes waving at the farmers in their tractors looking like someone from Lipstick jungle . I think I would be locked up .
Must check out this series.
