I have a girl crush on Olivia Palermo's style. (She kind of scared me as a co-worker and friend in The City, but I dig her clothes and hair.) It's no surprise since I have a pinboard called 'Girl Crushes' and she's pretty much the star. I feel like my outfit today is very Olivia. Well, if Olivia lived in the suburbs and didn't spend a lot on shoes, then definitely. 

So Olivia, if you ever find my Pinterest board with all of your photos on it, don't be alarmed. I don't want to stalk you and hurt you, I just want to be your best friend and take all of your clothes when you aren't looking. Where's the harm in that?

  3. I almost bought that very blouse on Ruche the other day! This is a special day for me, Kendi. I might actually have...a fashion instinct!!!! :) As always, you look great!

  7. That's kind of how I feel about you... also in a non-creepy way! 
    I'm loving your hair. It's kind of making me want to cut mine, but I'm such a wimp about losing length!

  15. She's my favorite too.  I thought she was crazy on The City, but still always thought she looked great, even while being crazy.  You also look great (and not crazy).

  32. The last time you posted about those leopard heels I may or may not have run straight to Target to go "grocery shopping" and those leopard heels may or may not have dropped off the shelf into my cart and I may have accidentally bought them. And I may or may not be wearing them right this minute and feeling like a rebel at work. Maybe.

  36. I too am obsessed with how pretty OP is. Seriously, her hair...what? how? And I love pretty much everything she's ever worn. I've never watched The City, and I'm going to keep it that way just so I can keep the image I have of her in my head.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Olivia is definitely on my girl crush list too- she just makes getting dressed look so easy and pretty. I'd totally steal her clothes too, although I'm not sure they would fit my size 8 butt! haha

    ReplyDelete
