Pea Green with Envy

If you don’t live in New York, you might not know who Olivia Palermo is but then again, if you used to visit the now defunct Socialite Rank or read Vogue or New York Magazine, you might. She’s the “socialite” that everyone loves to hate. She’s a size 0, has an enviable wardrobe, goes to parties every night, and has a model boyfriend. What’s not to love right? Oh, and did I mention she’s only 22?

I’ve never met her but I always love checking out the party photos on Patrick McMullen to see what she’s been wearing. She has amazing style and I think always looks great. Page Six magazine recently gave us a peak into her new Tribeca apartment that was pulled together with help from her interior designer mother, Lyn ­Hutchings, a partner at interior design firm Hutchings-Lyle.

I wish there were more photos since it looks kind of cute. Love the vintage Hermes tray and white leather coffee table with nail head trim from Carlyle ­Custom ­Convertible. Unfortunately, the flowers look like were picked up at the corner deli but I guess if that’s the worst part, then she’s not doing too badly. Although, now I feel the need to head to the gym to work out and the dermatologist for some Botox, and to work harder in order to upgrade my apartment! Keeping up with these young girls is like a full time job! (This is a joke by the way!)

    i “heart” you,

    I thought she got a bad wrap too. And her hair is just beyond gorgeous! I think I relate to her more than the other “socialites” since she has brown hair and hasn’t dyed it blonde like all the others, although, I think she did lighten it up a little.

    her mum didn;t seem to put much effort in helping her daughter design, but then again she is 22 and rich and may have chosen many things herself because she thought they were “cool”…

    Today is my birthday and I’m treating myself by reading my favorite blogs – you made me laugh – keeping up with these young things indeed!

    uh, so unfair! I’ve been having one of those weeks too, comparing myself to others. Never does me much good though!

    I am in love with that chair in the first pic – any idea of where it’s from or where I can get something similar?
