What's a queen without her crown? Nothing. Blair Waldorf, queen of the UES prep scene would never be seen in public without her "crown" either. There is something about Christmas break that makes me want to start re-watching Gossip Girl from the beginning, but I don't hate it. I always related more to Blair (whether or not that is a good thing is still out for the jury to decide) because she worked hard (or schemed) for everything she wanted as opposed to Serena who walked through life with visions of designer clothes and celebrity friends dancing in her head.
Also, I always preferred Blair's updated-classy-prep style. Headbands and all. And you better believe that I, too, invested in my own wardrobe to dress up my hair too. Perhaps I will have to revisit this trend soon.
