Olive Goil: Ladies of The Olympics

Oh my I am just so very excited to wave the flag and light the torch and cheer on the incredible athletes gathered together in London for the summer Olympics. Hoorah! Hooray! Go team!

I am going to get out my miniskirt and my letter sweater and my pom poms and I am going to be glued to the goings on over on the other side of the pond.

I am especially excited by all those incredible female athletes in the bunch – the gals who can run, kick, swim, jump, and throw – like nobody’s business. Some of the amazing lady Olympians to look out for includes:

Missy Franklin: Just 17 years old this wonder woman is one of the finest swimmers of all time, a true blue, and fish in the water.

Alex Morgan: She gets her kicks from scoring. 21 years old and a soccer star the world over, Miss Morgan is trying to break the record for “most goals scored” in Olympic honor.

Jordyn Wieber: I am always totally awed by gymnasts and this gal is one the best. She can jump and flip and flop like some sort of super being.

Allyson Felix: Fastest female around.  Period.

Best of luck to all the ladies competing this year! Let the games begin!

Live Olive: Rock The Boat

Ahoy my adventurous shipmates! Come aboard this grand vessel called the Internet and join me for a high seas adventure!?

As you all know, I am very at home on the waves, hoisting the sails and gunning the engines and swabbing the decks too. It’s no mistake that I am in love with a sailor man, as boats, and all that goes with them, is in my very blood.

I am a seaside gal, after all.

That’s why these styles, which I am so pleased to don today, really hit me close to the heart. My dears, behold Olive Looks! An array of sweet dockside beauties that provide the perfect pairings for sand, salt, and of course – ships of all sorts!

Tugs, cruise liners, sailboats and canoes, no matter! These fashions look great anywhere.

From the deep black military-inspired blouse, replete with  flowy, “good ship lollipop” innocence, to the linen culottes, this is my fav outfit to date.

Just the thing to go from dockside to dinner, the perfect late July ensemble! Add a vintage black leather tote and classic boat shoes  and you’ve got style fit for shopping, summering and stowing away!

Olive Loves: Mark Fast Sandstorm Crocheted Dress

There are dresses… and then there are dresses that absolutely thrill – gorgeous, sumptuous numbers, that once donned, will make a gal feel like a queen.

This utterly amazing golden crocheted dress by designer Mark Fast is one of the latter – a stunning, shimmering, gilded wonder that makes me just swoon each time I look at it.

Imagine wearing this at a dark and smoky speakeasy or on the nightclub stage or out on the town – flapping the fringe and showing some leg and kicking up your heels like the dance floor darling you are!

Mr. Fast is a Canadian boy done good in London, England, a tremendously talented gent who designs clothes for fabulous folks like Rhianna and such. But  even if you are not a pop star my dears, you can at least look like one, (and be one in your own mind!) when you’re wearing a dress like this.

Wow!  Just – wow.
