Having a beautiful closet full of gorgeous clothes and accessories is every fashion Girl's goal. Closet Stalker is here to provide inspiration for designing and organising your wardrobe, as well as finding hot fashion to fill it with!
A little while back I featured Olivia Palermo in Closet Envy as she is one of my style icons. So it’s only fitting that I attended the launch of Olivia Palermo as Chadstone Shopping Centre’s Spring Summer 2013 ‘Icon of Style.’
I was lucky enough to briefly meet Olivia and hear her talk about her style, inspiration and tips for creating a chic outfit. There’s really no better person to give this advice, as she looks polished and sophisticated every time she leaves the house (and I would know, I follow her blog and instagram).
One thing she said that I believe in strongly is “I love wearing things over and over again…because you re-invent it. It really tests yourself to re-style and be a bit more creative”. I love the challenge of re-styling my small wardrobe into new outfits every day. Sometimes it only takes a change of accessories to refresh your look, and like Olivia P, I love my accessories!
Not only did Olivia look as stylish as ever in her Witchery bomber jacket, skater skirt and bold gold jewellery, but she was lovely and genuinely sweet to everyone.
Here are some pics from the launch event.
I couldn’t miss an opportunity to get a snap with my style icon!
A few looks Olivia styled using Manning Cartel. Thurley and Mimco accessories.
The must-have bomber jacket and cuff by Witchery that Olivia wore.
If you’re not keen to part with a lot of cash, but still love the look of leather pants, there are hundreds of leather-look pants and leggings available right now. These won’t cost you more that $100-$150.
Now for some styling inspiration, let’s see how the cool kids on the street are doing it.
If you’ve ever watched the reality TV show ‘The City’, you will know why Olivia Palermo is loathed for her personality as much as she is loved for her fashion style.
The 27 year old socialite has worked in the PR team at DVF and the fashion team at Elle magazine, as well as modelled alongside her devilishly handsome boyfriend, Johannes Huebl. She lives in a gorgeous apartment in Brooklyn, owns an enviable wardrobe and now runs her own blog. Safe to safe any gal would be jealous!
Here are some of my favourite looks from the most stylish slashy (TV star/model/blogger) of them all!
Sport Luxe is my new favourite fashion aesthetic. Every store I enter and every magazine I open is full of fantastic sports-inspired pieces that, when styled correctly, will have you looking undeniably chic. So, no doubt, you will be seeing several posts on sporty closet treasures! Today the spotlight is on leather running shorts.
Olivia Palermo, my style-crush, pulls off a pair of running shorts and oversized sweater with amazing street-cred by selecting luxe fabrics.
Witchery have a pair in store now, $199.95.
If you don’t want to break the bank, Subtitled at General Pants have a pair for $79.95.
This stylish lady adds killer sandals and classic hoop earrings to give her sporty shorts a luxe look.
