West Village Date

It sure has been a long time since Olivia Palermo’s graced the blog, and for that I do apologise. Even though I think I’ve mastered the art of dressing down and not looking like a total slob, I still like taking pointers from the greats, such as Olivia, who have casual dressing down to a T. everything from the iconic 5050 Stuart Weitzman knee boot, to the grey skinny jeans and navy coat, to the chic bag are complete and utter PERFECTION.

Sweet tooth: The lovebirds stopped at Magnolia Bakery for treats

Dapper: The German model paired a wool coat with a taupe sweater, khaki pants and suede shoes

Bundled up: Olivia Palermo and her fiance Johannes Huebl stepped out for brunch on Sunday wearing layers to combat the New York City cold

Stay warm: The 28-year-old socialite held on tight to a fur stole around her neck while her beau covered his head with brown knit cap

Chit chat: The beautiful couple smiled as they left the eatery

West Village Date

Next on the shopping list: a fur stole. Thank you OP.

Zina’s Thigh High Black Boots.

What’s not to love about these boots? For one, they’re black; for another thing, they’re thigh high without that Pretty Woman situation going on; and for a final thing, they are chic as hell. The heel high is just perfect and the material looks to sit just right on the thigh, in fact the only thing that isn’t perfect about these boots is that I don’t own them yet… but I’ll sure fix all that.

Print Palermo.

I should think that by now I don’t really need to introduce Olivia, as I think it kind of goes without saying she is one of THE most stylish women on the planet (she most definitely makes the top ten, not that I’ve actually sat down and figured it out myself though…), and every time I see her latest outfits I swear I get butterflies. Anyways, these pictures are from a shoot she was doing the other day, and doesn’t her print outfit look simply divine? I know that I could definitely do with investing in some similar pieces.

Fashionably warm: Model Olivia Palermo modeled a trendy multi-coloured jacket with matching pumps during a photo shoot in Manhattan Sunday

Getting chilly: Olivia began to look a little cold after the long shoot, which including modeling a light brown leather handbag

Ready for winter: With two coats, Olivia seems impervious to the New York City chill

Pretty poser: Olivia's light brown hair was shining and styled in long waves for the shoot

That's better! Olivia snuggled into a three-quarter length shearling coat during the shoot

Do you think if I asked nicely she’d be my stylist?

Olsen: The Edit.

As you know, here at Diamonds and Pebbles, we worship at the feet at the world’s most stylish and fantastical twins: Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. So natch, I thought it’d be a great way to end the work week by showing these fab pictures from their interview with net-a-porter’s The Edit. Aren’t they stunning?

While the interview didn’t really say anything I didn’t know already about the girls (hey what can I say? I do know them pretty well), it did give me a chance to see them in the news… my how long it’s been. Read their interview here.
