After reading one of my favorite posts about headbands from FSU Fashion Girl (thanks Chandra!), I knew it was time for me to blog about my absolute favorite go-to item. I wear headbands almost daily (not including the obvious boring headband wraps for working out, washing face, etc.) I feel like headbands can make a statement about how I’m feeling that day, punch up an outfit a bit more and are always the perfect fix for the inevitable bad hair day.
The increasing popularity of Gossip Girl has fed into the headband-crave and Blair Waldorf’s ever present headband have inspired designers and excited girls of all ages. Also, check out Bella Sugar slideshow “The Many Headbands of Blair Waldorf” here. In a NY Times Style Magazine article, Leighton Meester [who plays the character Blair in GG] states: “But I think the most important part of Blair’s look is her headband, which is like her crown.” So into it.
While my Gossip Girl obsession and the constant flow of new headbands at Forever 21 has fueled my headband addiction, I’ve been rocking them (although looking back–not so proudly) for a really long time. High school pics:

Two of my friends in particular are flower-in-the-hair type of girls who constantly are wearing cute and often outrageous headbands or hair accessories. I’ve included pics of my two headband queens Ali & Sam:
Headbands can be purchased from: Jennifer Behr (where most GG headbands are from!), Free People, and Forever 21. Photo of my beauties are directly from Ali and Sam. What headbands would you wear this fall? Have a great Tuesday queens!
