The Queen of Accessorising...

Back in the good old days of 'The Hills' and 'The City' I was never much of a fan of Olivia Palermo. When she took credit for Whitney's work I instantly took a disliking to her. However, you cannot fault her for her style. She always looks absolutely flawless no matter what she is wearing! 

Matthew Williamson tweeted "No one accessorises better than Olivia Palermo" and once I had a look at some pictures of her out and about in NYC I had to do my style steal piece on her. 

I've been looking for the perfect fur gilet for a while and still have had no luck, so if any of you lovely readers have any ideas then please do let me love. I love the flecked patterning in the fur - so much nicer than just a plain block colour. I would never think about layering it up with a boucle jacket, or a jacket at all in all honestly, and that's the thing I like about Palermo. She tends to do things that veer away from what everyone else is doing. 

I used to absolutely love my flared jeans back in the day, and I kind of hope they start to come back into fashion, as with a pair of heels legs look never ending - which is always good. I absolutely love this look so I've done my best to find some bits to attempt to recreate it on a more affordable budget.

From Top Left to Bottom Right:
Fur Gilet - Topshop, £190 (Available Online Now)
The 'Perfect' White Shirt - Next, £35 (Available Online Now)
Black Shoe Boots - New Look, £18.74 (On Offer Online Now)

So after hours of searching I've come pretty close! You would not believe how difficult it is to find a royal blue bag, and I am now slightly concerned how much I love that Topshop gilet - which is not good as that is definitely not within my price budget. Let me know what you girls think of my finds...
