Reasons To Love Blair Waldorf

Reasons To Love Blair Waldorf Rebekah Koontz lifestyle blogger gossip girl fangirl fan what would blair waldorf do

I recently finished the Gossip Girl series on Netflix, and like any Netflix junkie who cannot cope with the stress of finding a new show to watch, I simply went back to season one and started again.

Not to worry. There will be NO spoilers given.

I, like any faithful brunette who feels for those who are constantly over-shadowed by the bombshell blonde, have a soft spot in my heart for Blair Waldorf, and rightly so. She is an incredible, fictional, girl-who-I-please-want-as-a-best-friend, real to me!, human being. And I love her for many reasons.

California can’t seem to get her act together when it comes to the weather.

You’re hot and you’re cold, you’re yes and you’re no.

One day, you’re shivering outside your car, jogging to create heat and cursing your fingers for not retrieving your keys from your bag fast enough, and the next, you’re slathering aloe vera on your forearms, wondering: who the heck gets sunburned on their forearms?

Judging Red Carpet Fashion — Oscars 2017

This year’s Oscars was certainly full of surprises, from winners, to almost-winners, to the host Jimmy Kimmel and his goodies falling from the sky.

Now, it is time for me to judge celebrities and what they decided to wear on their bodies.

I am currently wearing black ankle socks and pink plaid boxer shorts with pockets and a drawstring. My blouse is tan, puffed sleeved, and doesn’t match. My hair is dirty. My nails are clean.

I’m ready to do this.

Christmas Light Nails | VLOGMAS #10

10-vlogmas

Christmas makes me more girly. I wear red lipstick, and sheer black stockings that take forever to wiggle into, and I deign (yes, deign, I’m a snob) to wear sparkles in various forms upon my body.

I also do nail art. And the easiest—yet somehow impressive—design I know is a string of Christmas lights. I did this in blog post form a few years ago. But if you’ve been looking for a video, here it is.

eShakti — Clothing Customized

eShakti clothing customized

I’m a rather small (tiny) human being.

Shifting into “adulthood,” I’ve been blessed with the special challenge of finding clothes that fit me. Clothes that aren’t sporting the latest Disney Princess, or flowers on the backside, or a bejeweled hemline.

The struggle is real.

Because of this, I flourished in the land of thrift stores, where clothes are cheap enough to destroy tailor to my fit and my liking. But, there are some times I rather just wave a magic wand over a dress and have it fit.

Fall OOTD (Thrift Store Fashion)

Fall OOTD Thriftstore fashion

Hello, my internet friends.

It’s not very often that I begin a post with “hello,” so, hello.

I have been doing quite a bit of thrift store shopping lately. Considering I have yet to finish my Medical Transcription curriculum and tap into a fountain of wealth, this is a little concerning.

But then, I remember my jeans were 25¢.

Fall Inspiration 🍂

Hello Fall

In the autumn/wintertime, I fall in love.

With what? You may ask. Is it the crisp fall leaves? Pumpkin spice? The rich fall colors you stubbornly wear year-round?

No.

I fall in love with Pinterest. Pinterest is the social media equivalent to that ex who’s all bad for you, a waste of time, but every now and then, they show you attention or give you an amazingly thoughtful gift, so you think maybe they do care, maybe we can make this work, and you’re never free from their spell.

At Church With Only A Skirt On

Church skirt #OOTD

I basically showed up at church, wearing nothing but my grandma’s old skirt.

And I got nothing but compliments.

When I wear this outfit, ladies ask me questions. It begins with an over-all praise, then their expression focuses. They step back, stare at my knees, and say, “wait. Is it a skirt or a dress?”

Yes.

Spring Fashion Lookbook 2015

Spring fashion lookbook secondhand clothes

Fashion and thrift shopping. Those words make me happy. And the word candy. And the word clearance.

Anyways, I realized I haven’t done a fashion lookbook since Valentines Day, so I’m due.

In case you’re wondering, yes it is still spring. I Googled it.

So bring on the pastels, pearls, and lace! From my second-hand closet, to you.
