When Elizabeth Met James

If in case you didn't know, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen are child stars turned wildly respected fashion designers. Their line, Elizabeth and James, is my favorite although the do have a price-r line called, The Row and a teen line for JCPenny called Olsenboye.
Kim Kardashian is a huge fan of Elizabeth and James. So are Hayden Panettiere and Lauren Conrad and really, countless celebrities. :) I'm a bit nostaligc because I grew up on Mary-Kate and Ashley movies, books, and clothing. Yes, I shopped at Wal-Mart as a child.
Enjoy Mary-Kate and Ashley's genius. Please, tell me what you think in the comments below.
Cameron Diaz in Elizabeth and James minidress and Blazer. Hayden Panettiere in Elizabeth and James dress.

Cameron is the tom-girl with style. She works with Rachel Zoe, from Bravo's The Rachel Zoe Project. Adore that show to pieces. But I was a fan long before RZP. She's confident--the one thing that takes any outift to the next level--and she has great legs. Let's be honest!

Hayden has definately grown up from the little girl in Remember the Titans. But now that she's legal, she has great tatse in clothing. This particular Elizabeth and James dress gives me a 70's feel. The sleeves are fantastic. Especially when combined with that short hem and brilliant pastel color.

Lauren Conrad in an Elizabeth and James draped skirt and Louboutins. Kristin Cavallari in a Elizabeth and James top with Paige Denim jeans.

Lauren looks stunning. But this is what Elizabeth and James is known for. They are known for their basic pieces. They're pieces that you will have in your closet forever. Lauren knows all about basic pieces. She has a classic style with a twist and is currently on two covers at the same time--Cosmo and Teen Vogue. 

Wow. I just realized that I put Lauren Conrad and Kristin Cavallari in the same post. Both were the leading lady of The Hills but one is clearly more successful than the other. Are you going to make me say which one? :) But Kristin's style is more va-va-voom. She likes to be sexy--note the low neckline. 

All of these women: Lauren, Kristin, Hayden, and Cameron all have such different styles but Elizabeth and James make pieces that every girl can incorporate into their closet. :) 

Trivia Question: Why did Mary-Kate and Ashley name their line Elizabeth and James? Think you know the answer? Comment below. Bye. See you tomorrow or sometime soon. Peace!
