Loved It: Olivia Palermo Style (and life) Lessons

The City was boring, boring, boring.  Oh how I miss it!  Those girls didn't have to talk, (sometimes I would've preferred it that way) they could have just walked around in their cute little outfits and I still would have been glued to the screen!  Olivia Palermo may have been the antagonist on the show, but she was my favorite.  This girl can put an outfit together like no one else.   Here are a few Oliva lessons. 

Lesson 1: Simple is best.  Sometimes all you need is a stand-out dress, light makeup, hair pulled back and you look like a million bucks! 

Lesson 2:  Make sure your hair, makeup and nails are done, but for heaven's sake, don't look like you tried too hard! 

Lesson 3:  Don't be afraid of color. 

Lesson 4:  Although color is fun, know that you can always fall back on neutrals.

Lesson 5: Mix and match prints and textures. Leopard and floral.  Tweed and Silk. 

Lesson 6:   Bows are lady like. Also, like Ms. Palermo, heed the advice of Edith Head, "Your dresses should be tight enough to show you're a woman and loose enough to show you're a lady." 

Lesson 7:  Accessories make an outfit.  And sometimes your best accessory is the man on your arm. 

Lesson 8:  Dressing like Audrey Hepburn is never wrong.  Also, should you find yourself in Paris, dressed like Audrey, with your best accessory, make sure you dance in a park. 

Lesson 9:  Last but not least, remember that even the most fashionable among us make mistakes.  No one is perfect.
