Style File: Olivia Palermo

I have to confess that when I was googling Miss Palermo’s look from her guest stint on Project Runway (which I only knew about because TLo posted pictures here) I had to look her up on Wikipedia because, here’s the confession part, I had no idea who she was. I’ve seen pictures of her and seen her mentioned in magazines, but I didn’t know what she did or what her role in fashion was.

So just in case there are others of you out there who don’t watch TV, she was on a reality show called The City a few years ago, but the more interesting facts are that she worked for Diane Von Furstenberg and in the accessories department of Elle. Jealous! Can you imagine meeting DVF?

What do I love about this outfit? She picked a great, stand out piece and made it the central focal point and while the rest of her look is well put together, she lets it stay in the background so it’s not too busy. And being in the midst of a gold jewelry obsession myself, I really liked her accessories.

Well done!

Rather than break out each individual part of this look, I’ll give you the skirt itself and then breakdown the other major pieces.

The Tucker maxi skirt in Stacking Doll Polka can be found here at Piperlime. Normally $310, it’s currently on sale for $217. This skirt is great because its fresh and fun, but still completely in keeping with both the 70’s and the polka dot trends for fall. Just look at the Marc Jacobs Fall 2011 RTW show here.

This is such a fresh, fun look that I’m definitely planning on putting something similar together for myself. Maybe for my birthday wine tasting weekend in Sonoma…? If so, I’ll take pictures. Promise! 🙂
