Girl Crush: Olivia Palermo

With the the Hills series finale [finally, it's over!] and the City season finale last night, it made me wonder if I had to pick between the two to watch who would I choose? Well I think I'll pickthe City.
At one point I did used to watch, but I couldn't bear to watch anymore of the Whitney/Jay drama. I just couldn't care less and it was just really annoying.
I liked Whitney, and her style, but since she's been in New York her style doesn't seem to sparkle and shine like it did on the Hills, and is it just me or has Whitney been a little more irritating?

Enter Olivia Palermo.
Sure Olivia was dubbed the 'mean' girl, the 'Blair Waldorf' of the City, but in all honesty.. I love that she doesn't care what people think or say, and that she fights for what she wants.
She definitely doesn't take no for an answer.

Olivia has an airy style that is beyond effortless, she loves feminine silhouettes with fluidity.
She's also an expert of blending high-end pieces with vintage and inexpensive garments or accessories.

I just love her polished sophisticated look, and so I've dubbed Olivia fashionista of the month of July.

Who's style do you prefer from the City?
xo xo,
Mimi

I'd be happy with 99 percent of these outfits, delivered today to my place!

Kristin said...

Can't say that I love the attitude, but I do love the style!

Christina said...

I agree with Kristin. I can't say I love her personality but her style is amazing.

Lily said...

Regardless of her personality, she really has the most wonderful style.

I love how she plays around with colour and texture while remaining classical and feminine.

Wonderful blog my dear!

Love

Thanks for visiting my blog Mimi! "The City" is my guilty pleasure :) If I miss an episode, I watch it on demand! The NYC PR, fashion & publishing industries are so exciting and also, I really like how Olivia puts her outfits together!

I never watched The Hills, but I've heard so many people say how sad they are that it has ended. & I must say, I do love her style judging by all these photographs. xx

Forgetmenot said...

I have a girl crush on her too! I don't like the clothes she wears as much as I love the way she wears her clothes.

I was checking your oldest posts and I have to say that your blog is fabulous, and so is to find other Gleeks! (YAY!)

I never watched The City religiously, but I always loved Olivia - she did what she wanted, always seemed pleasent to her superiors, and dressed very very well. Love your blog!

I love Olivia. I have actually not seen her on an episode of the city because I rarely watch it. But i am obsessed with her style. And her personality on the show is just a character. I highly doubt she is really as mean as she plays on the show. So I am a huge fan of her!

jamie-lee said...

I agree, I just love Olivia's style, and that she always manages to look so effortlessly chic!

I hate to say it, but I loved her style back in the Rachel Zoe days...

Dexter said...

First of all, even though by remaining almost anonymous, I confess that I am sad to see the Hills ending. It all started with Laguna Beach and even though it wasn't the same without LC lately, I'm going to miss it :)
As for the City, I started watching it but it took me only almost exactly one minute to turn it off. I'll give it another try soon.
Olivia, well, I know she can be annoying and it might sound very mean but I like her when she's on a picture, doesn't move and doesn't speak. Her style is flawless though, no question about that.

Vanessa said...

i always loved her and her style! she has a very strong nyc personality

Paula said...
