What Would Olivia Do?

Jacket, nails, perfection.
Jacket, nails, perfection.

I must admit, there have been times when I have fallen victim to Bad Fashion Choices. Yes, I too am susceptible to committing a fashion crime. For example, there was a moment in time when I was pretty sure lime green nail polish was going to be the next big thing. I blame it all on Chanel. Those tricksters in Paris thought they'd have some fun and send a snot green shade down the runway, and sure enough every Chanel-aholic was salivating over the newest "it" shade. Myself included. It was only after I took a step back that I realized how positively icky the color actually was.
Now, I think it's safe to say I'm having the same sort of fashion crisis once again, and like last time, it's all Chanel's fault. Tell me, are clogs making a comeback? Part of me is screaming, "just say no!" while another part of me is saying, "but they are Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld is a genius and wouldn't they look adorable with boyfriend jeans and an Alexander Wang tank?" Oh yeah, and suspend your imagination and pretend they don't cost a bajillion dollars. Such a pickle.

Behold, Chanel clogs!

So what's a girl to do? The only thing one can do: ask yourself, "What would Olivia do?" She may be a bitchy snob who rules the Upper East Side, but the girl knows how to get dressed. In fact, Olivia Palermo is probably the only reason The City would ever get picked up for another season. With that said, would Olivia wear the clogs? Probably not. Sigh.

Oh, and speaking of Olivia, how perfect is that jacket she's wearing? And no lime green nails for her. She prefers a classic Chanel red. Now that's my kind of girl. Thanks for the help, Olivia!
