Olive Goil: Elizabeth Lau

I am always so inspired by young and talented gals doing wonderful things. Those that I seem to have inspired, myself, especially inspire me!

Round and round it goes! Please remember, dear sisters, that it is very, very important that gals lift one another up, celebrate each other and help one another be the best they can be.

That is why I am so thrilled to see that little old me served, in some way, as artistic ‘oomph’ for the new collection by the London fashionista Elizabeth Lau.

An “It Girl” of the highest order, Miss Lau’s lovely, ladylike clothing has become nothing less than a cult sensation in London circles and beyond. An enthusiast for vintage style and with an unabashed adoration of teacups and sugar cakes and all things girly girl – Miss Lau’s work has a whimsical touch, a flirty simplicity and an apple-cheeked sweetness.

Check out her latest collection below and tell me – does it remind you of a certain someone?

Live Olive: Fabulous Forties

As you know, I am a gal who has a love for all things fashion. I’m so lucky I have the opportunity to play dress up with some of the very finest vintage finds!

This better-off-red beauty of a dress is reminiscent of 1940’s fabulousness – a very Katherine Hepburn and Andrew Sisters sort of chic. The items of this ensemble were sourced at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and LA Vintage Exchange; two magical spots for anyone like me, with a soft spot for the classics.

So, what am I modeling here?

Well, well well… only the loveliest and most glamorous of scarfs, by Halston, the man who dressed all the glitziest of disco queens in the 1970’s. The flowy, dreamy dress is a vintage “Sunshine Starshine”. Isn’t that Oxford collar with the black border just divine?

Add some black patent leather high-heeled Mary Janes and frankly friends, I am just unstoppable.

Look out world, here comes Olive!

Olive Goil: Olympia Le-Tan

Oooh la la! Le French!

Olympia Le-Tan is absolutely the crème de la crème of young Parisian designers, the daughter of a talented illustrator and an artist in her very own right!

Miss Le-Tan worked with all sorts of very fancy fashion folk before setting out on her own, making very exquisite limited edition bags that look like books! Olympia happens to be heavenly at embroidery and everything she touches has just the right dash of whimsy and imagination.

In addition to all her other wonderful skills, she has the sweetest sense of what looks good on a lady, her own personal style is very preppy, pretty and a little bit edgy too, like your English teacher – If she were French and had sparkling sense of self-defacing humor.

Do look her up and if you can, grab one of her amazing bags – they are just the thing for the smarty pants in you – the gal who looks great in reading glasses and knows her Dickens from her Dostoevsky!

Olive Loves: Cherry Berry Swatch

My how time flies! Let me just say, I just so enjoying these little daydreams scribbled, to you, my dear friends of the wide world web!  Its been months now and I do hope I’ve made you just a little bit happy!

Today – I must swoon over Swatch, that old reliable and always fun and playful and colorful – keeper of time and date!

Please take a long and loving look at the “Cherry Berry” model, which has red and white stripes (!!!), just the sort I like to flaunt on both my sails and my stockings.

Tic toc!

This one is a must, my sweet readers. Time is of the essence!
