Whatever Happened to Little Jenny? (Gossip Girl Spoiler Alert)

Last night's episode of Gossip Girl was great, and I don't know if I can wait a whole two weeks for a new one. Anyway, besides the utter amazingness of hot gallery guy's newfound love of monogamy, Vanessa's sneakiness, Serena's ever-dwindling skirt length, and Blair's perpetual bitchiness, this past episode made me really miss the lady-like Jenny Humphrey of season's past. Specifically, the Eloise-ish, genteel, pastel-wearing, Blair's nemesis Jenny, who hangs out on the steps of the Met. Recently she's been donning the kohl-rimmed eyeliner look, sporting plaid duds with fingerless gloves, carrying emancipation papers as her accessory, and her blonde hair looks like Sally Hershberger chopped it off in the dark. Will the former Jenny ever return to us? She did wipe her eyeliner off when she returned home to the Brooklyn loft and looked a bit more like the Jenny we all know and love, so possibly there is still hope that she'll come back from the dark side (stylistically speaking). In the meantime however, indulge your Jenny Humphrey nostalgia with this pink designer beret from Barney's that was a Jenny fave in the past and is perfect for late fall strolls in Central Park. Also, this elegant blush pink puffer coat from Uniqlo which retails for under $100 is perfect for the fashionista on a budget. Think of them as mementos (if you will) of the former school girl turned edgy fashion designer.
