Despite the fact that socialite, ahem, we mean, serious fashion journalist for Elle.com, Olivia Palermo was portrayed as the villain on MTV’s “The City,” there’s no denying that the girl has good style. (Hate her all you want, but you know you’d kill for her crazy designer wardrobe.)
Following in the steps of many a socialite before her, Miss Palermo has now transitioned to the role of designer. That is to say, she’s created a mini-collection of bib necklaces. With only five styles, each features a self-tie ribbon closure, flat splatter of beads, and is named after some trendy corner of the world like Tribeca, Le Marais, Mitte (do you know where that is?). And guess what? They come with socialite prices, too. Our verdict: For us normals, cute if you’re not going to pay for it yourself. Otherwise, for the socials: Just what you wear to brunch to keep your outfit clean. Check out some more pics after the jump. [Refinery 29] Keep reading »

The problem with Japanese fashion is that a) it’s often hard to get (unless you travel frequently to Japan for some reason, lucky you), and b) it’s expensive. To take a little piece of Tokyo home with you (you don’t even need to take the trip), look to Votan Tokyo’s sweet bow stud earrings. The shiny fabric and sexy pyramid stud makes us think “black tie only,” even though we’d totally wear these accessories everyday. Very kawaii and only $32.
