Olivia Palermo's Fashion Site Launches Next Week — and a Line Isn't Far Behind

Love her or hate her, you can’t deny that Olivia Palermo has stellar style. The former City star, a New York City socialite, has a totally enviable wardrobe filled with everything from high-end Mulberry and Tibi to affordable Topshop and Zara.

“My personal style is classic … eclectic in a way,” she tells FabSugar, citing Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly as her style icons. “I love accessories and playing [with] color … and menswear. I love, love menswear. I have a little bit of tomboy in me.”

Because so many fashionistas follow her every stylish move, Palermo is launching next week, a blog that mixes Lauren Conrad‘s advice-driven Beauty Department with Gwyneth Paltrow‘s GOOP.

“It will be more of a lifestyle blog for sure,” she tells “I’ll touch on my favorite designers and trends I see on the street — like snaps of really cool girls I see in Tokyo. Or if there’s a boutique in St. Tropez or Barcelona that I like and want to revisit. It will be a little bit of everything.”

Palermo will write a few posts per week for the site, plus an “editor’s letter” once a month. She’s hired a team of talented writers — including a former ELLE colleague — to round out the content, and plans to make the site shoppable, too. “With the rise in e-commerce, I can give young designers even more of an advantage [when I feature them on my site],” she shares. “We’ll put a lot of young emerging designers on the site because that’s important to me.”

Don’t think the site will be all about couture, though; Palermo will have tips for the everyday girl, too. “If your sweater is pilly, I’ll show you how to take a razor to it,” she shares.

And since she is such an expert, Palermo says that yes, designing a line of her own will happen down the line, after the blog finds its footing. “I want to build my fashion company the proper way, in time. I can wait a little bit,” she shares. “But once I settle down a bit more and create a line it will most likely be evening wear.” Tell us: Will you visit

There are some 1000 cal diets that you can find on the internet. I have used one efrobe and I think if you are only going to be on it for a couple months to lose the weight fast it won’t hurt you. I lost 30 lbs in 9 weeks. I also excersised ALOT. Of course you will gain it all back when you resume eating the same as you do now. But for a fast fix, it does work.I ate a small protein for breakfast( poached egg or 1 oz farmer cheese) 1 pc. fruit, 1 pc. toast and 8 oz. skim milk.For lunch I would have 3 oz. lean protien, 1 pc. fruit and a salad.Supper was 4 oz lean protein, cooked vegies(anything except corn or peas) a large salad with lots of raw vegies and a diet drink.I never ate after 4pm.Drink lots of water and excersise. It will happen if you stay motivated.GOOD LUCK!!!!!References : experience
