Why do you wear so much purple?
“I need to stop trying to be you, and use my power to form the fashionistas of the future”
Can I just say how much I loved Blair in 6.06? She finally achieved what I have always wanted for her and that is to accept herself completely and see her “darkness” as a talent and not something she needs to hide from or vanquish. She finally acknowledges her own power and realizes that she can do this. To see her with that confidence and determination was beautiful. Yeah she can’t be a bully in her management, but she doesn’t have to change who she is. Ruling with a strong hand is Blair Waldorf. She is ferocious and she isn’t going to cower or change because of Nelly Yuki, Dan Humphrey, or even Eleanor. She can take some pointers to balance it all, but she is who she is and I love her for it.
A reason I have always loved Chuck and Blair is because he has always seen this power in her, has always admired her dark side and celebrated her light. He saw both Grace Kelly and Grace Jones and knew what she was capable of, and now she sees it too.
So, again, I loved last night, for showing us the first part of how Blair will succeed by embracing all of herself as this leads her to have it all. A successful career, a husband who loves and supports her, who she loves and supports as well, and her family who she will fiercely protect because that is who she is!
“I wasn’t going to show up. I was resolved not to. Every bone in my body tried to slow me. Every voice in my head screamed “don’t! But I didn’t listen. I followed my heart because I love you.”

I would really love to have a boy haircut. Guys are so lucky because they don’t have to think about their hair. I think if you can work it, it’s definitely a good look.
