Be Happy, Feel Beautiful
America’s favorite fashionable twins, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, have once again made their mark. The duo, founders of the ultra chic clothing line Elizabeth and James, debuted styles this season for The Row, their line of luxury clothing and handbags available at Barney’s New York next month.
The beautiful yet modern leather bags range in design from large totes to smaller cross body bags; but they will set you back a pretty penny. According to the New York Daily News, who covered the launch event last week, the line includes a $39,000 crocodile backpack. This large figure has some scoffing at the twins for daring to price an item so high. After all, with the economy still in recession, very few can afford (or even consider) dropping that kind of money on a single accessory purchase.
While browsing the newest designs on The Row website (shop.therow.com), we found grunge themes mixing with soft silk shirtdresses and retro eyewear. Overall the line definitely has an Olsen feel—from Mary Kate’s oversized sweaters to Ashley’s fitted blazers, each girl was able to fit her own personal style into their product while still maintaining a modern edge.
One of our favorites was this black shirtdress, $990. While it is most likely out of a lot of our price ranges, you can still find something similar to this in your local mall or even your boyfriend’s closet. Adding a feminine touch to a masculine item of clothing can be insanely sexy. Pair your slightly oversized shirtdress with a thin leather belt and some sparkly flats– you’ll be looking great in no time for a night out on the town!
