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.

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.

Hello, internet fam! Today, I am doing a collaboration with the lovely blogger: Megan, from Lazy Thoughts.

And, being the thrifter that I am, it had to be a secondhand outfit.

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.

Born Pretty Store Review

Born pretty store review

I don’t write a lot of reviews. When I do, they’re only ever for things I truly believe in or purchase from, such as Thred Up and Ipsy.

I found this store. They didn’t find me.

And I’m obsessed.

Valentine’s Day Fashion Lookbook

Valentine's Day Fashion Lookbook

Valentine’s sparks an array of creativity in girls’ clothing, no matter what kind of day their guy has planned. We want to look cute and feel cute and show we cared to make ourselves extra pretty for that special someone.

A few weeks ago, I wrote a post on date ideas. From these have birthed three different outfit choices; a casual look with a Valentine flair, a cute and flirty look perfect for a picnic or movie, and a romantic date night look.

I’ve also teamed up with Emily from thecoloradoblonde.com, who’s created the three different hairstyles featured in the lookbook today.

And yes, every one of these outfits was bought or given to me secondhand.

The Military Ball 2014, Part #1 — Get Ready With Me

Some of you may remember the Military Ball from last year. If you do, you’re my favorite.

In case you aren’t filled in, every year there is a Military Ball. My older brother is a merchant marine. Thus, he is invited to these military balls, providing us with the opportunity to spend a lot of money and join him. So we do.

Last year, it was just my brother and I. This year, we both had dates.

Ah yes, moving up in the world.
