I have always been an Olsen addict, but as of late I have been jonesing more than usual. by this I mean I spend several hours backtracking Olsens Anonymous to look at paparazzi shots exhibiting their effortless style for the 2nd, 3rd, and sometimes 4th time to try and gain some inspiration for my own outfits.
which brings us to the above photo; I have found myself thinking about this specific image sporadically throughout the past couple of days (and nights--I actually decided to write this very post while I was laying in bed), scrutinizing every detail of Mary-Kate and Ashley's looks.
the twins have me captivated for several reasons. first being the certain way they wear the clothing. for example, they prefer items that are large for their tiny figures, like MK's oversized blazer; the sleeves scrunch perfectly without looking unkempt. they also have the ability to mix unexpected items without fail, like Ashley's funky ethnic headpiece combined with her classic fitted overcoat. of course, the Olsen's do have the advantage of snagging designer pieces with ease, such as dishing $715 on Mary-Kate's Louis Vuitton leopard stole (but let's be honest, if I had that kind of bank account, I would purchase the scarf without hesitation too). and who could forget the drool-worthy moon and star print from Chanel's s/s 2008 collection (which has seen the likes of every blogger's favorite fashionista Alexa Chung)? their wardrobes consist of the most desired designer duds that make all the fashion lovers swoon.
everything these girls do leaves me fiending for more and I am not ashamed to say that I have a full-blown addiction to them. afterall, admitting one's addiction is the first step to recovery.
but, do I really want to get over my almost unhealthy Olsen obsession? probably not.
