I think life is about falling in love with the right person, shopping, eating our favorite desserts and traveling a lot.— Olivia Palermo
The most viral Olivia Palermo quotes that are little-known but priceless
I really get inspired by stylish girls around the world that I see on the street. Colors, patterns, throughout my travels, whatever catches my eye.
Fashion has always been in my life, thanks to my mother and my aunt growing up.
I think as I became an adult, my style evolved, and my love of fashion evolved even more.
My mom instilled in me at a young age how important it is to be properly dressed when you leave the house, no matter the time of day. Even if it's 4:30 A.M. and you're heading to the airport, you want to look and feel your best.
We all enjoy being comfy, but my comfy - you know, I love a nice, cozy cashmere sweater and spandex, sure.
I get my inspiration from young stylish girls I see all over my travels.
A lot of the time, if I have samples, I can't tailor a sample.
Or, I might have just bought something and I don't have time to go to the tailor, there are ways to take thin, skinny belts and layer them, and do quick little fixes.
I’m a much nicer person, much more laid-back and relaxed, not serious like they show me.
I don't look at paparazzi photos. And most of my friends don't want to be photographed, so they walk four feet to the side. If you see a photo of me laughing, that's why - because my friends don't want to walk with me.
I love the mid-length skirt. That's really appropriate, you can wear that in many different day occasions.
I definitely take inspiration from runway trends but also throughout my travels, I see editorials all over in all of the different publications.
I always have a vision when I go in, I always know what I want to do.
I spend the first half of my day dealing with Europe because of the time difference. Then in the evening my website gets my undivided attention.
The time eras that I really like are more on '50s and '60s.
It's really on the streets, if I'm in a car, or I'm walking by, and I see a girl. And you can see it, on her face, you can see it in her step and the way that she moves and flows, and you're like: "You go girl." And it's fun, and sometimes you just have to go up and be like, "You look fantastic!"
Sometimes belts are flattering, and it helps with proportions.
I may be a young girl, but behind every young girl is a powerful father.
I love to mix colors. For me, I don't have a rule, like "you can't wear silver and gold." You can mix it.
It's always great to have two inspirations, one that has more of an editorial purpose and one for more of an everyday, wearable approach.
Growing up, I wanted to be a sports commentator.
Then my aunt introduced me to the fashion industry, and everything sort of fell into place.
I kind of took inspiration from my time in Paris.
That was kind of the real time when I discovered European fashion. It's stuck with me since University.
I always like to play with a lot of color. Color is great.
I always have an idea in the back of my head, but that goes with anything else that I'm doing. There is a sort of vision behind it.
I've always had the mentality of: work hard, get to bed early, focus - and let your work speak for itself.
Of course I love leather, and I love stingray.
So combining the two and adding those gold elements - I always love a great gold accessory.
I love belts. My husband always jokes with me, because he always calls me out on my belts, he's always like, "Just belt it, like you always say."
I think being organized should be in your lifestyle.
I run a few different businesses, so I have to be organized. And I think everyone around me will also feel organized. To have chaos going on, it just doesn't work.
