!!! Olivia Palermo

While I find her antics (most likely fake) on The City extremely annoying, I cannot deny her awesome style and the beautifully put together outfits.
She's not too over the top, never trashy, never over-sexy... just a perfect, classy "leave something to the imagination" style of dressing that I admire and that I prefer for myself.

After seeing a recent post in one of my favourite celebrity-type outfit blogs, La Dauphine, it inspired me to write this entry and present some of my favourite outfits that I've seen Olivia photographed in. I'd wear any of these in a heartbeat, and perhaps I'll even try to emulate a similar look on a future outing and post the outcome :) ... if I ever find the battered brick-sized family digital camera again... haha. Now, without further ado, here are my choices - note the colour palette that I pretty much live by :)

The vest is from a previous Kate Moss for Topshop season, I believe, and I would have never thought to pair it with a fringe top, but it somehow works and looks cool. Bold statement necklace with a splash of colour is stunning, as well!

Next up is a menswear-inspired outfit. She sports this type of outfit quite often, and I think it's fabulous. I love the bow at the neck for a feminine touch, and the grey vest.

Belt over vest - neat effect! I also like how she managed to blend in silver and gold, which seems to be quite popular nowadays.

Meh, don't care much for Whitney Port's outfit choices even though this one isn't as painful to see as some of the other things she's worn in the past. But eye on the prize, here - again, a cool idea from Olivia's outfit - to pair a blouse with loose, flowing sleeves under a shorter-sleeved jacket.

This one is another menswear-inspired look, and probably my favourite one. The YSL Tribute pumps, the big Hermes bag, her nail colour, her jewelry, and of course the feminine white blouse & tailored blazer... an outfit that could span generations - I can see both myself and my mother wearing something like this :)

Alright, now it is time that I stop admiring and get to work.

What is your fashion inspiration?
