I work in an office that’s 80 percent chicks. Where college interns outnumber actual employees and topics like Jennie Garth’s masterful performance in “An Unfinished Affair” often kicks off the day’s conversation. While some people might want a little more testosterone in their 9 to 5, I love it! I can come to work looking like a street urchin, or decked out like Gossip Girl’s own Queen Bee, Blair Waldorf. Which is what I did today, for our official dress like Blair day. We have been meaning to implement this for a while, but the end of winter seemed like just the time to pop a silk flower on top of my head and dress like a lollypop.
While preppy kind of reigns in the office anyway, today we got to really indulge in ridiculousness and brave that headband headache. We even made one of the only straight male interns to grace the halls (err, hall…) of Washington Life take our picture like we were lunching on the stairs of the MET. I love the show Gossip Girl, as all Washington Lifers with boobs do, but it can be a tad depressing when high school students on television have far more money and drama than you. Why don’t I have a stalker in a secret silver spoon cult? How come I don’t use a Fendi baguette as my kleenex holder? Well, because I’m not Blair Waldorf. Except for today!!! Next week? Chuck Bass!
