When I was in middle school, the walls in my room were covered from top to bottom with Mary-Kate and Ashley posters and magazine clippings. I even owned an MK & A pillow from their animated show. I remember wanting everything from their Walmart line including their beauty products. I rocked crimped hair for a solid three years thanks to them! Now, even though I’m older, this obsession hasn’t gone away. These days, it’s their line, The Row, that has me drooling and wishing I had such extraordinary attire. My blogger bestie, Kait from Basking In Burgundy, shares this same fascination with these petite twins.
With Kait’s collection of round sunnies, baggy tops, and eye-catching accessories, there is no denying that some of her inspiration comes from the Olsen’s. So, what do you do when you have two blogger besties who both have the same obsession with MK&A and have Pinterest boards dedicated to just for them? You collaborate and take this opportunity to gush about why you adore them…….duh!
So, here are my 5 top reasons why I loooooove the Olsen twins! To read Kait’s top 5 reasons, click here!
1: They are soft spoken.
The twins are very wise, always thinking before they speak. What an amazing habit to develop. The twins will always look at each other first as if they are looking for approval. Also, the habit of pausing before a single word slips out of their mouth has helped these two stay out of a lot of trouble.
2: They are humble.
Mary-Kate and Ashely are far from being labeled ‘Divas’. Even when the twins won CFDA Womenswear Designer of the year for the second time in a row, their shy smiles and bright eyes show their shock and humble gratitude, as they congratulate one another in their acceptance speech.
3: Thier perfect pursed lips.
Oh, their signature perfectly pursed lips! That is my inspiration for every photoshoot I do. Can you say, “prune“?
4: They embrace natural beauty.
I love how they are very much comfortable in their own skin and are shown without makeup more times than with. They display the true meaning of fresh-faced-fashionistas!
5: Couture Queens.
With their pristine choices of fabrics and tailoring, they know the importance of simplicity. Thier line, The Row, is all about how the material fits and falls on the body and each piece becomes a classic, staple piece for your wardrobe. The concept of taking everyday basics and making every detail perfect to one’s body, is making the customer invest in timeless pieces that will have the strength and quality to stick around with you for years. But I also love how they not only cater to one particular audience, but they also have many other lines that are affordable and well crafted. Make sure you check out these lines, Elizabeth and James and Olsenboye for more.
