Girl of the Moment: Mary-Kate Olsen

Mary-Kate Olsen

Born June 13,1986 in Sherman Oaks, California, of course unless you have been living under a rock the past few years you have heard of Mary-Kate and her twin sister Ashley, but if you haven't its okay, I forgive you. 

In my opinion Mary-Kate has an awesome sense of style. She has proven herself to be very creative when it comes to the fashion industry, and even though I may never be able to afford her gorgeous creations from the row, I can still use them as inspiration. I love fashion that shows a sense of individuality, with a touch of whimsy and romance, and to me their collection has the right elements. I know I must have some readers who agree Mary-Kate has an excellent sense of style. If so, leave me a comment and let me know what you think She may not be one of my readers or followers but Audrey Kitching from agrees and she has an excellent collection with some of Mary-Kate nicest ensembles and speaking of Audrey she has an awesome sense of style also.

The look in this ensemble was inspired by Mary-Kate and her passion for mixing fabrics and patterns.

Less is More
I just love this black and white maxi Jessica is wearing. I think she was going for the boho chic look with the addition of the long chains and fishtail braid and since I love the boho chic look, I think this was a good one.

 The bohemian style also known as boho style has been making a strong showing in the last few years, but this is not the bohemian style of old that we are used to. This new bohemian look has been called boho chic because of the attempt to make the style a little more chic and not so cluttered.

The term bohemian comes from the word La Boheme, it was used to describe the bands of gypsies that traveled through Bohemia. Today it is a term usually used to describe an artistic and free-spirited type of lifestyle. In my opinion the boho style is an attitude that happens to reflect in your way of dressing, maybe that is why some people pull off the look so effortlessly. 

To read more about bohemian/bohemianism see the article Bohemianism.

To pull off the boho chic look the art of accessorizing and layering are essential. Tunics, caftans, flowing dresses, skirts and tops, beaded tops, fringes, hobo type handbags, paired with big and bold jewelry. The boho look even has its own hairstyles.The key is to make these pieces fit together without overdoing it.

I plan to dedicate a few posts to covering the art of boho dressing. I welcome any comments or suggestions and even pictures of your favorite boho outfits.
