Eww why does my room and mirror look so awful in this?
As you can (kind of) see, it even has a bow! And will hopefully give me an illusion of curves.
Gosh, this is embarassing. I Must stop. Or find someone to take the picure. Up and out.

She always has her pearls!
There aren't many good pictures, but if you watched the show as closely as me you will have noticed her small obsession with bows (like many of the new tie-neck blouses in stores!). I (being an avid fashion designer), started adding this inspiration to some of my drawings...then I went to the mall a week later and what did I see? Exactly.

And this adorable tweed purple bag (which also has pink and turquoise/silver sewn into it). I have decided that my fall wardrobe will also include rich colours like berries, purple, turquoise and, of course, pink.
I actually have a (sort of) funny story about this whole purple obsession of mine. OK. So what I was wearing that day was: my grey and purple argyle fitted/cropped cami, lavender short-sleeve button up, jeans, and my new mocs (which I must post!). I picked up this bag and thought it was the most adorable and perfect cozy-fallish-wintery bag ever. But I didn't buy it. Three or four hours later we made it back to the store and that's when I purchased it and the headbands. My father made a remark about how well it matched my current outfit and I beamed and said: "Purple is hot this season!". Later that evening...I was at Chapters (sipping a tall vanilla latte) and picking out a yoga mat (which, surprisingly enough, Chapters does have.). There were no pink and green ones, so I chose the purple one. I felt a bit of a fool because now I was carrying my new purple bag and buying this. When I went to the cashier, she said "Purple...wow that goes with your outfit!" or something to that effect and I replied, "Thanks...". The moral of the story is: If you have a theme to your outfit (no matter how adorable), be prepared for people to notice!
Secondly, I just finished my shift at Timmies. I drank a coffee there. I hadn't had much caffeine for months, due to the fact that I was sick in the hospital. Then, I bought a bottle of Diet Dr. Pepper for the short walk home. More caffeine. Which reminds me; does anyone know what happened to Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper? It was amazing! But I digress. All in all, that is why I now have the shakes. Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
* Please excuse my rambling and long post, which used a large amount of brackets and chit-chat completely off topic. This is how My Preppy Pink Polo gets when she downs too much caffeine.

The following is a commentary by My Preppy Pink Polo:
Don't you just love Blair's outfit here? I'm really into the blazer and headband!
Here Serena models the appropriate way to wear menswear without looking frumpy
Blair's outfit here reminds me of a younger Charlotte with the shift dress in a pretty print and of course matching headband
This is really girly and sweet. Love how she layered the different textures but managed to look like something out of "I just threw this on" magazine
Both friends here are sporting some preppy basics mixed with thier own personal style
I especially love Blair's blazer and her shoes and bag
This is one of my favourite Blair outfits on record because this says everything I love about style: argyle, oxfords, headbands, and ah-dorable minis
This another one of my faves...I think red and black or navy are going to be huge this fall I am seeing these white piped jackets everywhere (a post about that coming soon!)
This gang of girls is totally fab! Love their colourful pastel coats and headbands! Each girl looks colourful and sweet like a little doll (in designer duds, that is)
You know you want to comment (;P), XOXO MPPP
