Style Crush : Olivia Palermo & A Giveway

images via celebinspire

So I'm still not exactly sure what it is that Olivia Palermo actually does for a living. Can anyone please enlighten me? What I do know is that the woman has an absolutely impeccable sense of style. Whenever I see photos of her, she's always perfectly put together and occasion appropriate. And she's quite genetically gifted as well. These are a couple of her looks from NYFW. They're all rather fabulous that I can't even pick a favourite.

Kim over at A Very Sweet Blog has a feature about my blog today and you can also enter to win a print of your choice from my Etsy shop. Please click on over and check it out and if you don't already know Kim, do say hello. You'll be glad cause she's an absolute sweetheart. Her blog also happens to be one of my favorite daily reads. The fun and informative format in which she presents various stylish topics is always inspiring.

There's still time to enter my Butter London Giveaway!

I don't know what she does for a living but I'm with you, she always looks impeccable and like you said, occasion appropriate, which is more than can be said about a lot of celebrities!
I love all her looks, but from these 4 I can peek a favorite, and it is the last photo!

She has definately great taste in pants!

jeanine said...

All I know is that she had a fake job on MTV that she didn't seem to show up to at all so maybe she does nothing?? She does usually look good though....

Heather said...

Isn't she an actress? I guess I'm not sure! But she sure is gorgeous and has amazing style :)

We just love her style!! She used to be on The City on MTV and she was horrible on that show. But hopefully it was just an act - you know reality TV. :-) But she has amazing taste and always looks great!

I'll admit it too - she really does have such great style! She is a socialite and I have no idea how she makes her money now, but she did do an ad campaign for Mango I think right?

I just can't get over what a bitch she was on The Hills!

Nelah said...

amy b.s. said...

she really does have fantastic style!

Jian said...

She does have looooovely style!

Actually have to admit that I dont know who she is. I'm not very with the times with famous people and celebrities? xD

The Dainty Dolls House said...

She does things in fashion, has a blog and I think styles for fashion as well! She's got great style! I watched her on the Hills or whatever that show was called and she didn't come across as a very nice person, but when I see her off of that, she doesn't seem that bad at all. I like the things she puts together!! xx

Mary Jo at TrustYourStyle said...

When I saw her on Joe Zee's show, he introduced her as a socialite, so pretty much I think she doesn't have to work. So wonderful that you're doing a giveaway, I will swing by Kim's blog.

Grace said...

i think she's so beautiful as well but I have no idea what she does for a living. I know she was a part of The Hills spin off (Whitney's show) but I don't know what she did on that either. She has fantastic style

Sam said...

You're right, what does she do? The last time I saw 'The City', she was working for Elle magazine as a socialite or something like that...They don't portray her as being the nicest person though. She has the best wardrobe and impeccable style. P.S The giveaway sounds awesome!

Diana said...

I don't know who she is but I like her tops :)

A BRIT GREEK said...

She has such great taste and style, but I also don't have a clue as to what she does for a living either! Er... I know she set up her own blog, perhaps she's slowly, like really slowly making money from that otherwise she's just busy being a New York Socialite!

Bravoe Runway said...

Now that you mention it...I don't know what she does either! I always thought she was a model turned actress, but from these comments above, I don't think that is what her profession is. I do know that she does blog for Piperlime, and always looks amazing. I suppose she is famous for being famous? OH..and SO looking forward to next week's post with my darling :D I think you should just make the post private to ALL but me...hehe!

Liz (Beauty Reductionista) said...

I think she's a glorified socialite. Former reality star turned fashionista/blogger/endorser of brands. She's pretty and I've loved some (not all) of her styling. I kind of thought she'd have made a much bigger splash in the fashion world by now but maybe it's still in the works. Girl clearly loves fashion... I can see her turning to designing at some point.

Shop Sweet Things with Jeanne said...

OP never disappoints. I don't know how she does it either. And if you find out what she does for living, please let me know! ha! Love the looks you picked out! xo

Style Servings said...

I definitely share your fashion crush, her style is so beautiful!

Shop N' Chomp said...

Good question. I'm not sure what she does either. Model? Sorta blogger? Girlfriend to gorgeous man? Hmmm....

I do however know and agree that she always looks impeccable!

Jess said...

Yes, she always looks amazing! And she is so photogenic!!!

Marcela Gmd said...

I love her!!!
Have a wonderful weekend!

Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

Josie said...

I kind of love and loathe her in equal measure!

Marie Martell said...

Can't deny she has great style!

Fashion-isha said...

I love Olivia's style but it was funny because when you said you don't know what she does for a living I realized I don't know either! So here's Olivia on wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Olivia_Palermo.
Have a fabulous weekend!

The introduction I usually hear is "she is a socialite", so I don't know how she earns her living. But she really looks perfectly put together, always. :)

I also do not know what she does for a living but I did run into her during NYFW. I do know that she is a socialite. I guess that is a job in itself.

Diva In Me said...

Yup! Socialite is what I've heard about her. Apparently she started as a blogger but I don't know how far or how true that information stands but I guess she could probably be earning her living from being featured in magazines for her great style and getting lots of sponsorships to appear in their events? Who knows..all I know is that she has great sense of style and a pretty face to begin with..

I like the 1 which she's carrying a yellow clutch =)

hello, Friday said...

Seriously! She get everything right! Love how sophisticated she looks. xoxo

Stacey said...

I know that she was on The Hills, but I never watched that show. I only heard her talk for the first time when she was guest judge on Project runway last year. I love her sense of style though!

Maggie said...

Ahh I definitely agree she has one of the best senses of style ever!

Shara said...

love this girl!!kisses from germany La Folie 

aki! said...

I feel like I have never heard of her. Maybe her last name... I do agree she looks nice though.

M.E said...

She just knows how to do it when it comes to fashion :)

hope you had a great weekend!
