Olivia Palermo: Snag the Look



I have to admit I wasn't a big fan of Olivia on The City, but I think her attitude problem was probably mostly drama created for the cameras (every show must have a villain!). Whether you loved her or hated her, you have to admit her fashion sense is pretty right on. When I saw these recent photos of her I thought this is a great Spring look that I should try to recreate for you for less. So here's my formula to snag that look (without paying Jimmy Choos type prices):

Pins and Needles Watercolor Chiffon Blouse, $58 at UrbanOutfitters

Silence & Noise Nomad Shorts, $48 at UrbanOutfitters (they come in black too)

Cindy Ravi Wedge, $50 at DSW

Poppie Jones Reptile La Jolla Wristlet, $20 at DSW

Express necklaces, $34-40 each

Now I would say that I will pretty much always advise to go with vintage, one-of-a-kind jewelry, but if you don't have that available then one of those necklaces above will most certainly do. Oh yes, and bust out a fun cocktail ring while you're at it!
