Ahead of the Game

One of my favorite ways to update any plain or boring outfit is with a great headband.  Blair Waldorf/Leighton Meister proves that these hair accessories aren’t for little girls anymore with her sophisticated and unique headgear showcased on this season’s Gossip Girl.  Unfortunately, for those of us without the Upper East Side trust funds, Blair’s headgear is uber-pricey and of the Jennifer Behr kind.

My suggestion is get some great inspiration from the Behr site and follow these super-easy DIY instructions:

For the headband, use a 17″(length) piece of ribbon in 2″ wide silk/satin (measure your head before you cut it, otherwise you take the risk of having a headband too tight or too loose).  Attach a 3″ piece of elastic to the two ends using a hot glue gun or Farbic-Tac.  Find a fabulous rhinestone applique at M&J Trims or a local fabric store and VOILA…Budget Blair Waldorf!

PS:  If you’re not the DIY kind, check out these fabulous Lace or Feather versions for under $5.
