Celebrity Style Steal - Olivia Palermo & WIWT

Another month, another celebrity style steal & who better to feature than the stunning Olivia Palermo.  Now I must confess the only thing I know (or need to know for that matter) about Ms Palermo is that she ALWAYS looks stunning.  Yup sickeningly she seems to have that great natural ability to be able to rock the modern chic look effortlessly, plus of course she's naturally stunning too! *sighs*

Now I might not be able to turn back the clock to look as youthful as Olivia but I can attempt to steal her style.  As soon as I saw the below picture I knew this outfit would be perfect to recreate as it's a look that can be worn by any age group plus it would make a great Christmas outfit.

So first up here's Olivia looking totally gorgeous (I fear I have an unhealthy girl crush developing!!).

Now on with the style steal, minus of course her arm candy ;-)

So first off the dress & this Mango one looks a pretty good replica, even if I do say so myself!  I love the deep 'V' neckline teamed with the pleated chiffon bottom half & as you can see from the below picture it could so easily be dressed down with ankle boots teamed with a scarf & a biker jacket to get use on a daily basis too.

For the necklace I couldn't decide between two I spotted in Topshop so I've featured them both.  The first one is a gold mesh & snake layered version which would be perfect for brightening up the black dress & tying in with the shoes & clutch.

But equally this beaded black faceted version is also stunning & extremely elegant.  I mean how stunning would this look not only styled with the dress but teamed with a simple white shirt, skinny distressed jeans & a fabulous heel & clutch for a night out?!!! Just divine daaaarling!

I also spotted this great cuff bracelet in Topshop, perfect for teaming with either necklace & looks far more expensive than it costs.  It would also make a great staple to layer up with other bracelets too if you wanted to make more of feature.

Moving onto the shoes & seeing as we're nearly in December instead of going for open toed sandals I've picked these gorgeous slingbacks from Boden as they'll be perfect for pairing with nude tights without having to announce to the world that you're not brave enough to go bare legged!  Such a gorgeous subdued shade of gold that again these shoes really could be teamed with anything not to mention dressed up or down & would be perfect come the hotter months, as we all know how useful metallics can be especially when thinking of holidays & travelling light!

And finally turning to the clutch, I've gone for something a little larger than Olivia as of course us 'normal' folk need to be able transport a ton of essentials including of course the libby, phone, spare pair of tights not to mention hubby's wallet & car keys!!

I love the simplicity of this bag, perfect for summer holidays not to mention nights out with the other half or the girls.

Finally here's my outfit for the day, off out for lunch before crashing on the sofa - bliss!

So there you have my steal on Olivia's style.  What do you think?  Are you in love with Olivia just as much as I am?  I really wouldn't mind a mooch in her closet (no doubt closets) that's for sure!!  How about the look is it something you can see yourself wearing, or perhaps a version of this look over the coming few weeks?

I'd love to hear your thoughts.
